A New Year's Greeting

Happy new year, everyone. I hope yours started better than mine (food poisoning, yay!), and that you are all heading into 2019 in fine fashion. We don't have a heck of a lot new to report on Tour de Lovecraft yet, but here's a quick update. 

Ken is still writing away, but isn’t done with everything as of yet. January is dedicated to getting it all wrapped up. Most recently he’s be doing the story summaries for The Tales, and working on the Zealia Bishop and Others essays. As a note, Ken's adding the Frank Barlow story "Til A' The Seas" to that section, since it turns out that HPL was much more involved with that one than with "The Night Ocean."

I am still waiting for sketches to come in. Both my artists are a little behind due to some personal issues, but I am hoping to have some stuff to share with you all soon (hopefully after this coming weekend?). Other administration activities include trying to nail down my international localization, and getting a finalized RFQ sent in to our printer. 

Until Ken’s finished with his writing, the book production itself is in a little bit of a holding pattern. As soon as I get the words, they go in the layout, we can figure the final length, and that triggers off a whole lot of other production actions. 

Thank you as always for your patience. The final result of Tour de Lovecraft will be worth the wait.

      Ha! I thought it sounded wrong, but we put Frank on the campaign page originally, so I didn’t check it. Ah well.

      I appreciate being kept informed, thank you. I'd rather wait and get a quality product, and since there is no question about quality (aside from that of your New Year meal, apparently) I will happily receive my copy when they are ready.

      Thank you for update. I'm sure these books will be great! One thing: the stories mentioned were co-authored by Robert Barlow (not "Frank").
