Update #10

HOORAY, WE DID IT! Now what?

3 comments

Wow. Wow, everybody. Seriously. What a month! PHEW.

Smut Peddler is funded, and the Kickstarter is over. Now, it's time to get this book to the printer. The funds from Kickstarter won't actually deposit into my business account for another two weeks, but there's still plenty to do between now and then! The SP to-do list, as it currently stands:

  • Get the back cover finished, with the likenesses of the $1000 backers.
  • Get the pre-press for the book finished.
  • Send out the backer reports to collect shipping addresses, commission information, and who-to-credit information for the thank-you page.
  • Finish signing the bookplates, so they're ready to start shipping to backers right away when the printed books arrive. 
I'll try to keep the updates frequent enough to be informative, but not clutter your inbox with them. How does weekly sound?

Talk to ya soon!

      Are the bookplates actually hand-signed by each artist, and shipped around to get it completed? That's amazing, if so. I assumed there'd be one taken and just prints made of that, or something else not so intense on the hands. :-)

      Miss Spike, I did the really dumb thing and paid without checking the shipping costs to Europe. How do I get those extra dollars to you now that my pledge has been collected?
