I apologize for not posting yesterday, everyone. I didn't have it in my calendar and in my head it was the next Monday. I'm not working under ideal conditions right now but I'm trying my best to keep things moving forward under the circumstances.
So What's Up?
First of all, some of you have books! When I had the first groups of confirmed addresses from the highest two tiers of backers I shipped out everything I had in the limited inventory I had on-hand. I made sure some contributors got their copies along with several backers. If you've received your book, please feel free to comment and let everyone know what you think!
I've got a big box of bubble-wrap envelopes and shipping labels in my office. I'm going to pre-prep a bunch of outgoing packages, and I just need to get myself out to Suwanee (location of my warehouse) to pick up product. Timing and logistics are not easy, but as soon as possible I'll get another batch of core books out. Each outgoing package will have tracking that will be attached to the "order" on the new website so everyone can know where your books are.
Folks, I'm not asking any of you to follow or care what my daughter, myself, or my family is going through right now. (Follow me on social media or visit www.fun4liz.net if you want to know more.) You all invested money in a project, one that's extremely late. My business is a one-man show, so if I have an unexpectedly bad day—such as my daughter's very first day of TBI* yesterday—it screws things up and sometimes I just don't have it together enough to push through.
I hate making excuses, so I'm trying to keep it to a minimum. But let me just say that I'm not having an easy time of it right now. I'm going to keep on pushing forward, because even imperfectly is better than not at all. I'm long past trying to make myself look good, I'm trying to keep my promises and fulfill my obligations because to me it's better late than never. I'm trying to go forward even if it's just an inch at a time so that progress is being made and so there is a light at the end of the tunnel for all of us, even if it's still in the distance. I thank all of you for your initial contributions to make things happen, and to those of you who have still let me know that the final result—a solid new version of a classic RPG—is the important thing.
