Notes from the Manager
If you couldn't tell that that was Zombie Blogger on top of Becky, hopefully the title clued you in…?
The other zombie is one of the Multiplex Movie Sponsors: Chris Hennes! He'll be back on Thursday, when this arc continues.
A massive, heartfelt thank you to everybody who steeped up after last Thursday's call to action regarding the Kickstarter fundraiser for Book 2!
299 300 very generous backers (as of this writing) have made Book 2 possible. It will happen. I'm targetting a March 2013 publication date at this point, but it might be sooner than that. My distributor has a little bit of say, as does whichever printing company I go with, of course.
I'm still recovering from my cold, and have a large freelance project that I should have started on last week to get to, but starting next week, I will be working on Multiplex and Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book 2) full time. Thank you (again) to everybody who has made this possible.
(Well, almost entirely full time. I will still be taking occasional smaller illustration or production projects because I can't leave my regular clients hanging. I need to have work to go back to after Book 2 is completed!)
While the pressure is off now, check out this Deleted Scenes post, because there are some incentives for pushing us even further past the goal.
Oh, related to that — at the request of a few readers who are unable to pledge via Kickstarter (because of Amazon Payments or whatever), I will be opening up a second avenue for donating toward the production of Book 2 for PayPal users. I expect to launch that on Thursday, after the Kickstarter project has ended. More details then…
