  Happy Valentine's Day, all! It's been nearly a month since my last update, so this seemed like a good time to let you know what's going on. PRINTING: Printing of the book is proceeding ... well ... it will be, once the Lunar New Year holiday is over. I was hoping to have gotten the galley proofs BEFORE the factory shut down for the holiday but, alas, that did not happen. Now it seems like they will arrive here sometime in the next 10–14 days. I'm sure I'll post pictures when they do. In the meanwhile, this is NOT supposed to impact the final delivery date (since they were planning for the 2-week break SOMEWHERE in the process). PDFs: I must apologize. Backers whose level entitles you to this reward (which is most of you) SHOULD have already had them by now. The files are ready (and have been for weeks), I'm just having a little difficulty figuring out the best way to get them into your hands (or onto your computers, as the case may be). I think the file is too big to just send via email without causing some of you difficulty, and I don't have an easily available download option. At this point, I'm thinking about simply using YouSendIt.com (or a similar site) ... but this is your chance to weigh in on the matter. If you have a better idea, let me know. WALLPAPERS: I haven't started work on those yet, but should during the next couple of weeks. I'll try to post images of the works in progress. CONVENTIONS: Once the book is out, I'm going to start spending more time out and about on the gaming, comic, and anime convention circuit. I'll definitely be at Paizo Con, Gen Con, Jet City Comic Con, and Rose City Comic Con. I'm currently looking into the possibility of getting an Artists Alley table at OryCon, SPX, Baltimore Comic Con, Girl Geek Con, Long Beach Comic & Horror Show, APE, and Aki Con. Most of these shows are in either the Pacific Northwest or the general DC Metro/Baltimore areas. I'm willing to travel to other places, but my budget is limited. However, I'm happy to serve as a Special Guest and participate in seminars, signings, readings, and other special events at conventions that want to underwrite my appearance (that is, help out with travel expenses and/or waive exhibitor fees). So if you have a local or regional show you think would be improved by my (and Squammy's) attendance, let me know ... or let them know how to contact me here or at Stannex.com. That about wraps it up for now. I'll probably post next when the galleys arrive ... so look for that in about a fortnight. Thank you ALL again for your support (both material and moral). It means more to me than I'll ever be able to adequately express.
