That should get the wallpapers and the mobi/pdf/epub files out, at least. I’m working on processing the print and Kindle versions now; once I proof them, I can pull the trigger on getting the book published, and then I can order ’em, sign ’em, and send ’em out. I’m still on track, I think, for having the book available for sale by February 1st.
There’s still time to pre-order, though!
I need to lock in the information so that I can populate the Acknowledgement page for the Kickstarter/Backerkit backers. So, if you want in on that, or you already have and just want to grab a signed copy of REVISIONARY, now is the time to jump over to the preorder store and adjust your pledge. Once I have it locked, I can prep the book fully, get the cover info over to the cover person, and, you know, publish the book and everything.
PS: The pre-order store will remain open after Friday. But Friday is when I lock down the folks who’ll be listed in the books as early backers.
That’s what I’ve been doing this morning, you see. I don’t know how long it’ll be before REVISIONARY is live; if you want a hardcopy I’d say get it or via the Backerkit store. There’s a bit of a discount.
And, if you did go for the Kickstarter: fill out your surveys! If you haven’t, there’s a chance to do it via the above Backerkit link. Or, here it is again.
This is to test that everything’s working out properly. Also: the TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION pre-order store is now open! Huzzah!
Which in of itself is not that interesting, at least to people who are not me*; but I do want to plug BackerKit itself. I got it primarily because I wanted help getting the stuff out of the door (or into the in-boxes), and figured it was worth the cost. However: it still paid for itself, in the end. Making a profit on something that I was happily treating as a sunk cost is nothing to sneeze at.
*But it is interesting. Advertising and marketing stuff. I’ve added an actual advertising budget to the next one, so it’s of interest to me.
Seven more physical book orders of FROZEN DREAMS at the Backerkit store and I give away five signed copies at Goodreads! Huzzah, as has been said in the past. And possibly the future, as well. Maybe we’ll bring the word back.
Now that I’ve gotten virtually all* of the Kickstarter paperback copies of FROZEN DREAMS out, I’ve gotten a look at my inventory and I think I can reasonably flog some of my existing stock. I was originally going to sell some of them at conventions, but that’s not going to happen any time soon, hey?
So, I’ve reopened the FROZEN DREAMS store. You can get the book, you can get the digital rewards, or you can get the whole shebang. There’s only twenty signed paperback books total for sale, and when they’re gone so is this reopening. If you missed it the first time, this is a great chance to catch up.
*There are a couple of people who NEED TO FILL OUT THEIR SURVEYS. But I’ve put their books aside anyway.
It’s time, I think. Things are progressing to the point where the pre-order store will start interfering with my calculations, so… forty-eight hours, folks. After that, you can always get FROZEN DREAMS on Amazon.
E-books, really: I’ve prepared FROZEN DREAMS for Kindle, Epub, and PDF. If you backed, you should be getting them in your inbox this morning. If there are problems with the books or the delivery, let me know. If you didn’t get them because you didn’t back the Kickstarter, you can still rectify that in Backerkit.
