Shipments sent to the warehouse
Thanks go out to everyone who got their shipping address changes to us in the past week before today's deadline. We're sending over the shipping list for the Pharaoh of Hong Kong to our shippers at Alliance right as this post is going out to you.
And you know what that means...
This Kickstarter is a wrap!
After three years and seven books, we draw this grand experiment, our first Kickstarter campaign, to a close. It's been a thrill ride, and we are so, so proud of the books we were able to produce and incredibly grateful for the support you've provided. This campaign gave us tons of valuable lessons and plenty of things to think about. Plus, it gave us you folks. The best folks. Our first backers. THANK YOU!
One last helping hand
As we’re winding down, we’ve been looking back at everything we’ve learned about publishing fiction—what we did fairly well, what we could do better, and so on. We feel like we got some talented folks to write some terrific books, so we’ll chalk that up to a win.
But we have to admit that we’ve struggled with spreading the word about our novels. Judging by the sales numbers outside of this campaign, fiction for Evil Hat just hasn't taken off, jetpack or no. That’s something we’re working on, but we also wanted to put the problem in front of you and get your thoughts—and, if you're willing, your help.
If you liked what you read and would like to see more of them sometime, posting a review helps more than you might realize. And there are so many places to post! You can write a full review at places like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, or RPG.net. Mention your favorite book on FB or Twitter. Post one of the covers on Instagram or Tumblr. Or even tell a friend in person (gasp! will these madmen stop at nothing!).
Of course there’s no obligation, but we’re often asked how people can help make things happen at the Hat, and this is a suggestion for that if you’re so inclined.
Regardless, thank you all so very much for your support during this campaign's funding period, and throughout the years that followed. And if you're one of the people about to receive their copy of Pharaoh — enjoy!
