It's been more than a month since my last update, and it's been a busy time. Lots has happened, so I thought I'd get you all caught up. 1. THE BOOKS HAVE LANDED! -- Yes, copies of The Littlest Shoggoth have arrived in the U.S. and I'm starting the process of printing out out mailing labels, signing and sketching, and all the other little details that must be taken care of in order to ensure that the books get into the backers' hands. We are well on the way to meeting our goal of hitting our June goal. 2. LAST CHANCE TO UPDATE YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS -- If you're a backer and you've relocated, gotten a new P.O. Box, or simply haven't yet sent me your shipping details ... NOW is your last chance to do so. Send me a message via Kickstarter ASAP. 3. FIRST CON APPEARANCE -- The Littlest Shoggoth will be making its first convention appearance this weekend (May 3-5) at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon in Portland, OR. I'm going to be a guest at the show, and the festival merchandise table will be selling copies of the book, the lapel pin, and prints & post cards of an image I drew in honor of the con. If you're a Portland resident (or if you're planning to visit so you can attend the festival) and you'd like to get your backer rewards handed to you personally, shoot me a message so I can bring it with me and we can make arrangements to meet. 4. LAUNCH PARTY IN SEATTLE -- Well, not Seattle proper ... but about 25 miles north in Everett, we're going to have a launch party for The Littlest Shoggoth on Saturday, May 18th at the AFK Tavern (an incredibly AWESOME gamer-themed restaurant that should be part of EVERY gamer's visit to the Pacific Northwest). Details are still being finalized, and will be announced next week, but the date is firm ... so mark the 18th off on your calendar with tentacles ... and join us to celebrate the arrival of the book! I'll be heading to the warehouse tomorrow to pick up cases of the books so I can start the signing, sketching, and such ... if I'm not too overwhelmed by the emotion of the moment, and I don't have a SAN incident, I'll snap a few pics and send a follow-up announcement in the next couple of days. Thank you, everyone, for all your support. We're nearly at the end of this process (though I've still got to work on the caricatures for the Wrangler and Avatar level backers ... and I owe you all at least two wallpaper images). I can honestly say that I'm even MORE excited than I was at the beginning.
