We’ve launched the Kickstarter for A Little Immortality: Schlock Mercenary Book 17, and it has already funded.
Also, it has already blown past all but one of our original stretch goals, including one that gives everybody (not just backers—everybody) a free desktop wallpaper.
Our plan was to launch it *quietly* on Tuesday, and then announce it here a day later in order to see how our newsletter was performing, but the launch was not quiet, and then things got busy, and now the “a day later” is more than half a day gone.
I’d write more, but everything I want to say is over on the Kickstarter project page, so click that and learn all the things!
We’re in the final two days of the BIG DUMB OBJECTS Kickstarter project. I’m not as far along on my deliverables as I want to be (the cover is still a few hours from being finished), but we’re on track to get the books, slipcases and add-ons delivered on time.
Click through NOW if you want to get a sketch edition. And if you need a slipcase for your Schlock Mercenary books, now is a good time to reserve yours. Those things take up a lot of warehouse space, and the margins on them are really slim, so we don’t overprint by much.
We’re excited to put this book in your hands, and very happy to have overfunded enough to make some other very cool things.
I’ve been making slow, steady progress on the Big Dumb Objects cover image. The entire process is available on YouTube, and the most recent video is available on my Twitch stream.
As it stands right now, the heavy shading has been been finished in the lower left, but the top of the the giant space-tree, which goes in the upper left, hasn’t even really been started. You can see the trunk of the tree winding behind Tagon, but the inks stop somewhere behind the only-partially-rendered Chisulo.
Follow me on Twitch for “Big Dumb Cover Art 5,” when I’ll tackle that tree, and begin the final shading passes.
We’re running a brief social media promotion. It involves Twitter.
We only have about a week before my friend Meg leaves town, and takes their glitter with them. If you want it to happen on video, get thou to a retweetery…
