Shipments Queued; This Kickstarter's a Wrap; One Last Helping Hand

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!

DON'T SKIP: At Long Last, Pharaoh Is Ready To Ship

Hello!

If you are one of the 67 softcover backers for the Benjamin Hu novel, The Pharaoh of Hong Kong, by Brian Clevinger and Matthew Cody, good news — we're ready to ship.

Similarly if you're one of the 21 hardcover backers, we're on the cusp of shipping those too.

If you are one of those 88 backers and have an address update to give us (remember, you first gave us your information in 2012) please have it to us by September 10th. Past that point, we'll be shipping out your book to whatever address we otherwise already have on file.

Best of all? This is the last title from this campaign. Three and a half years later, we're finally done with them all. (Closure, old buddy! Where you been? Welcome back!)

Thank you so much for your patience, your support, your reading, and your reviews. This was our first Kickstarter and you made it a memorable one, and taught us things we've carried on to our other campaigns since. You're the best!

Pharaoh of Hong Kong Available Digitally, Now!

Running a little behind

1 like

Hi folks,

Just a quick update and note of apology. We're running behind on shipping out the Dinocalypse Forever books, in part because we're also close to having the Stone's Throe books on hand, and we're also "debugging" a few issues with the limited hardcover editions of those books for those backers who are getting them. Combined with holidays and a few untimely bouts of sickness, it's made us run behind on a few things, our fiction line especially.

Fred is hoping to get the ball rolling with things by the end of the week, though, so if you are due in-print copies of Stone's Throe and/or Dinocalypse Forever, please provide any address corrections or updates to us via private message so we can make sure the books go where they need to.

Thanks, and apologies again for the delay!
