As noted in the previous short post, the final approval for the book has been received! We did it! Against all odds and despite sooo many hurdles, the book is now officially complete.
Now I just need to get them out to you all!
So this means the end of the creative phase of the project. It's done. Finished. No more fettling. I have a complete product ready to ship.
Now we enter the production phase - getting the book to you out there. In order to achieve that, I need to do a few things. The main thing is to create the custom, numbered copies of the book that were promised. In order to achieve that quickly I have decided to expand the scope of the original pledges. I want to get copies of the book out to you as quickly as possible after the 3.5 extra years so I will be doing the following:
The reason I'm doing this is that certain aspects of the "numering" need the PDF version, plus the fact that those getting the simpler text versions of the book will need elements of the PDF version as well (the ship posters, for example). So it makes sense to just send the PDF out first to everyone.
Now that the approval is out of the way, the release schedule is as follows (sorry, no timescales and it's more or less in order...)
Whilst all this is going on, I'll be starting work on getting the long-awaited physical stuff out - by which i mean the dice, dice rings, charity rewards and so on.
In terms of the PDFs, I already have two-thirds of them compiled and ready to email. I'm hoping to get them out in the next couple of days. That's assuming nothing goes wrong!!
And that's about it for the Big News. I'll be doing regular updates on progress now that the end is in sight. At the moment, thought, it has been a busy week and I have loads to get done before turning in for the night.
See you on the flip side.
