Update #13

Surveys Underway!

3 comments

We got all the surveys sent out last night, so make sure to drop on by Kickstarter and look for the message telling you to fill it out if you didn't get an email about this!

There's one goof on that survey, for the folks at $25 and above -- I said the deadline for the thank-you credit info is April 22nd. CLEARLY the time-travel has gotten to my brain, since that date's in the past! Actual deadline is this coming Sunday, April 29th. I want to hit the ground running the Monday after, get all the credits into the source file, so we can get this thing off to the printer right quick.

I also hope to get to work on layout on the Dinocalypse tie-in adventure we promised waaay back at the $7500 mark! And best of all, one of you will be illustrating this adventure -- backer Jayna Pavlin offered to provide some art as part of her support of the project, so you'll see some great grayscale pulp-art in the adventure once we get it out (hopefully in a few weeks).

Lastly, things aren't all dinosaurs and pulp over at Evil Hat these days -- yesterday, we launched a preorder of Don't Read This Book, an anthology of darkly psychedelic urban fantasy/horror based on our Don't Rest Your Head role-playing game. Check out the cover and author list below! You can pick up a big fat e-book bundle, or get all that PLUS preorder the softcover, over at our webstore (and soon, we hope, elsewhere).

That's a few weeks before it goes up for general sale. PLUS, you get Beyond Dinocalypse in e-book form when it becomes available (writing begins in September 2012), AND any other novels funded by this project. (See our stretch goals!)

    MILLENNIAL: Get everything from the GUEST STAR reward, plus Chuck will write an approximately 5000-word short story about the character you name when he’s next available to do so — we’ll make it part of the September 2012 Beyond Dinocalypse timeframe, if not sooner. Once it's done & edited, you'll be the first to read it, and then we’ll release the story to the public and credit you as the creator of the character. In addition, you'll get a second copy of Dinocalypse Now with a custom, "real" (fake) dinosaur-hide cover hand-crafted and rebound by Dan Cetorelli (work to commence at conclusion of the drive). And we'll ship you a limited edition hardcover of Beyond Dinocalypse when it becomes available.
