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.
Ha. Haha! HAhhaHAHA! IT’S DONE! Oh, it’s not a real book yet. It’s got twenty thousand words’ worth of connective tissue to establish and more characterization to develop and there’s a plot hole or three to fix and at least one scene to write, but: 60000 words! I made it! With a day to spare!
