Not as much editing as I would like for it, but the most important bits are going to get professionally proofed and pared down. I’m now hammering out the details of the art. With any luck, I could have the FERMI RESOLUTION RPG supplement ready for layout by November! Which would be awesome*.
Needed to get it down to 37,500 (150 pages), and it’s done! Huzzah. Now I just need to see whether I can get the editor I want for it, before I send it off to the person who’ll put that and the art work together. With any luck, I can get the whole thing finished before the end of the year…
Mostly, I might – might – have the cover art squared away. No guarantees, yet: but if it works out I can’t wait for people to see it. MORGAN BAROD’s going to be a weird book generally, which is a pretty good argument for not Kickstarting it. If if goes down in flames then at least it’s not taking other people’s money with it.
Beta readers will probably be needed at some time in March. I’m hoping for a June launch, but that may be optimistic. We’ll see.
Print version to follow. TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION is a collection of short stories set in the same universe as FROZEN DREAMS, which means they’re all post-apocalyptic fantasy stories: there’s a Tom Vargas novelette in there (which is completely separate from TINSEL RAIN. the sequel to FROZEN DREAMS) and a self-contained story from MORGAN BAROD (which is the next book scheduled for publication). Plus a bunch of others which I hope you will like. Check it out!
Going to work on the conversion process this week. We are rapidly approaching the point where I will have to lock orders on the Backerkit pre-orders, so keep that in mind, folks. Gonna be weird when TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION is no longer a project…
After I finish checking the stories one more time, it’ll be time to collate them and get them into a KDF-compatible format. From there we go on to the print proof, and I’ll check it all again. And after that I’ll pull the trigger, order the books that need to be signed, and away we go. We’re still on track for this being done by the end of the month, or close to it.
In the meantime, the pre-order store for TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION remains open.
