IF YOU HAVE NOT YET COMPLETED YOUR SURVEY, PLEASE DO SO. IN FORTY-EIGHT HOURS I WILL LOCK ORDERS, AND START GENERATING POSTAGE. PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR SURVEY AND MAKE ANY FINAL PURCHASES BEFORE THEN. THE STORE IS HERE IF YOU WANT TO ADD ANYTHING TO YOUR ORDER, OR PRE-ORDER SOMETHING.
Sorry for yelling, except that I’m not. Not that I’m mad, either; it’s just that this is not my first Backerkit fulfilment. You have to be loud about these things.
They’re mostly in, but if you signed up, check your spam folder. And, of course, you can always pre-order TINSEL RAIN here! …And that’s pretty much it.
Money’s come in, so it’s time to start constructing SKUs and setting up the Backerkit store and the rest of it. I also should be getting chapters soon, and once that happens things start to move along. We’re well on track to fulfilling TINSEL RAIN early, but if I want that to stay on track then I had better get cracking, right?
I’ll put up links when they’re ready. In the meantime, there’s my Amazon page.
I was going to keep it mysterious for the Kickstarter, but I’m listening to a Backerkit crowdcast right and the presenter was very convincing about how that’s a bad idea generally. So, here’s the latest TINSEL RAIN stretch goal:
- $4,500: …Audiobook! At this tier, I’ll have enough to pay for the audiobook version of TINSEL RAIN! I’ll be using the same narrator as before, too. This reward goes to everybody who backs at the E-Book plus Special Thanks! level or above. (Note: this will be the equivalent of Audible files, not the Audible files themselves. Note also that the audiobook will not be ready in September.)
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.
