It's All About Makin' the Words Happen
Hi there! We’re late!
*listens to crickets*
Wait, you want to know more? *sighs deeply*
Okay, so, despite my most fervent hope of having Ken’s new words in your hands by October 31 (a most appropriate date), that hope has been dashed by the simple fact that he hasn’t finished creating them yet. Ongoing commitments and the knock-on effect that Vampire taking a little longer than he expected has had put him even more behind that we both expected.
However, the decks are now cleared, and Tour de Lovecraft is now top of Ken's dance-card. Ken has been doing the research and reading and thinking about all the new material, and the actual writing of all the new essays and material is now happening. Our brand new hoped-for date to get things into your hands in electronic form is now Christmas, and I think we can probably hit that. I have also finally chased Ken into the update spreadsheet and he'll be updating his writing progress as it goes.
A few more notes:
- Unfortunately, getting the BackerKit set up is a bit dependent on knowing how long the final books will be for shipping calculations, which is, again, dependent on the writing. I'll have it up as soon as is humanly possible.
- The art for the interiors is underway, and I hope to be able to show you all some stuff in the next few weeks.
- As a slight change, the artist I had initially tagged for the luggage labels didn't quite work out. Domenico Neziti's style-breadth is so wide, I decided to ask him about doing them in addition to the interior pieces for The Destinations, and he agreed.
- I am working toward getting the print quote nailed down in final form as well, so that as soon as we’re ready to pull the printing trigger, these books can hit the presses.
Your kind patience is appreciated. These books are going to be great when we’re done, that much I can promise you with 100% certainty.
