Ring Out the Old Year With Some New Dinocalypse News!

Hey Dino-folks! We wanted to squeeze in one last update for you before 2012 wraps up.

It's been a great year for us. Dinocalypse, our first full step into the Kickstarter fray, blew the doors off every expectation. You blew the doors off every expectation. Since then we've run a successful board game project in Race to Adventure, and now we're rockin' it out with our Fate Core project.

But Dinocalypse is where it all started, and we're continuing to make good strides on bringing you more pulp-themed fiction. Both Khan of Mars and King Khan are written and are moving through the final steps of production. We hope to have these to you for reading in the next couple months, a full half year before the books see formal release into the fiction market. We just need to get the cover art, layout, and e-book conversions done before we can share them with you. 

While both books take place past the end of the Dinocalypse Trilogy, there're practically no spoilers to be had, so you can pursue your deep and abiding love of your favorite professorial ape worry-free.

There's been some other great news on the Dino-front, too -- we've inked a deal with Audible.com for them to produce audio-book adaptations of the Dinocalypse Trilogy itself. There're no established publication dates for them yet and, alas, this isn't something we can offer to you ourselves (Audible is waaaay bigger than us), but we figured the audiophiles among you would be pretty excited by this news.

Meanwhile, Chuck begins work on Beyond Dinocalypse shortly, with work on Dinocalypse Forever to start soon after, by mid-year 2013. We've already seen how quickly Chuck can hit is Dino-deadlines, so we're positioning Beyond Dinocalypse as a summer release, but we think we'll have it ready for you to look at it months before the eager public. Membership has its privileges!

To prep for that release -- the fiction market likes to know a book is coming at least six months in advance, sheesh! -- we've gotten the Beyond Dinocalypse cover art done. We're going to give you a high-resolution look at that cover at the end of this post.

And, looky there -- we're at the end. Here you go, and as always, thanks for everything!

      I had actually marked down the lack of update as it having been moved back, but I was still hoping for January reading material. I shall drown my sorrow in Jim C. Hines.

      Yeah, Chuck's schedule got a little complicated and Beyond & Forever had to be slid around a little to accommodate it.

      Glad to hear this! I was expecting Beyond Dinocalypse around now, so I was wondering what happened to the September 2012 writing-of-it.

      I am pretty excited to see King Khan as Harry Connolly is one of my biggest author crushes.
