April 2 update - no fooling here
Dear incredible backer-type-people,
Did you see the interview with The Wild Hunt?
Supposedly there's also an upcoming article on selfpublishingreview.com that mentions our campaign, but I haven't seen it yet or heard that it was posted. I'll let you know.
I haven't forgotten about you. I'm semi-offline until my regular computer gets back from the shop, but I've been busy the last two weeks since we completed our Kickstarter campaign. I went back to Chicago and picked up a number of calendar-related books from my old apartment, so I have more things to read through and add to the calendar database.
There's work to do on general layout. I'm choosing typefaces and deciding on how much color to use in the final books. Art is important as well: I'm wading through a group of portfolios that were sent, by backers and other interested people, to sort out what kinds of artists I might be able to employ on the finished projects. As far as production, I've been talking to various printing and distribution outlets about our wishes and ideas, to try to get the best quality for the final project.
RIght now, there's not much for you to do, but keep being excited about the final project later this year!
One thing that you can check on for me right now, though, is if your pledge actually went through. Amazon Payments reported that there were some issues with some credit cards, and so the amounts haven't been transferred yet. If for some reason you weren't charged your pledge by now, yours may be one that there is an issue with. You may need to check your email for information from Amazon Payments on how to fix that. (I have no say in the process; at this point, I haven't even been sent all of your information.) By now, everyone's pledges should have gone through. Kickstarter indicated that process takes 14 days, so that means that it would've completed on March 29.
Once I have my "real" computer back there will be more information, but for now, I leave you with more thanks and excitement. Here's a fun video to watch, as well! Egyptians today, just like their ancestors, are very clever.
