Hey, everyone!

Every once in a great while, I get a PM from a Poorcraft backer, inquiring after a book. And every time, I assure myself this will be the last one. But let's formalize that with a final update!

If you never got your copy of Porocraft, never filled out a backer survey, never checked back: Your book is here and waiting for you, and has been for a year. Please PM me! I have about 40 copies of Poorcraft, signed by Diana and myself, pining for homes.

Let's tie up these loose ends!

And if you like creepy comics that will fill you with dread, please check out my new Kickstarter project: The Sleep of Reason, a 360-page anthology of scary stories to read in the dark. There are 12 pages you can read up right now on the Updates page, and more all the time!

Thanks, everybody!


Update #28

Drumroll, please!

THEY'RE HERE! THE BOOKS HAVE ARRIVED!

I've just returned from the delivery drop-off point- a storage facility down the road from my apartment- and the books are all present, accounted for, and looking AMAZING.

Diana arrives Friday, and we'll spend the WHOLE weekend signing books for Kickstarter supporters! Books will start shipping MONDAY!

If you missed the Kickstarter, your books will ship after the Kickstarter orders are fulfilled. You can order your very own copy of Poorcraft here!

We've still got lots to do, but this is it! We're in endgame, folks! Thank you for your support! And watch your mailboxes!

Update #26

"I'm not a Poorcraft Kickstarter backer! Will I still be able to buy the book?"

Comment

Abso-friggin-lutely.

Poorcraft will be available for EVERYONE!

Poorcraft has a street date of May 20th! KS backers come first, and their orders are first priority. They already have their PDFs, and their books will be in the mail before anyone else's. But there will most definitely be enough Poorcraft to go around, in both digital and dead tree format! 

Follow me on Twitter (https://twitter.com/#!/Iron_Spike) or watch this space to know when you can get your hands on a copy! And thanks for all the interest, everybody!
