Update #13

About those other prizes...

Comment

With Grim Tides entirely written and the e-books sent out, my thoughts turn naturally to all the other prizes. My goal is to have everything sent to donors by the time the serial ends this summer, and earlier whenever possible.

The e-book collection of Marla stories should be ready this month, though it'll probably be late in the month. I plan to write the new story for the limited edition chapbook -- which is set soon after Grim Tides -- in March, so that should be along in the spring. I hope to send postcards around the same time, probably along with chapbooks.

The timing for the trade paperbacks depend on the publisher who's doing the book, and I'm not sure of his schedule yet, but I'll let you know when I do. I hope to have them ready sometime in the summer.

I want to make new bookmarks, ideally featuring the new cover art Lindsey Look is creating, or with the art for the sketch, so those will be along later, probably also in summer. Same with the prints of the sketch, and with the limited edition hardcovers -- they should be ready in the summer. (The hardcovers should include some neat extra content.)

So expect a trickle of goodies over the next six months or so!
