New People, Hello!


I thought I’d drop a quick note to say hello to the new subscribers coming in after last week’s free promotion that brought in 10,000 downloads of The Object: Book One.  Hello and welcome.  We’d love to hear what you think of the story, which characters you like or dislike, where you think the story is headed, etc.  We do take recommendations for murder, if you want anyone dead.  (This offer is limited to characters in the book and does not extend to real people.)

As you can see, things are a little slow right now.  I’m finishing up a side project and then plan to use the rest of March and all of April to write most (or all) of Book Two.

In the first week of May, Book Two‘s episode’s will begin to post weekly with illustrations and original music.  At that time we’ll be posting more regularly.

For those of you still waiting for your Kickstarter rewards, I’ll have your books out in the mail by the end of this month.

Today is the Day!


That’s right.  The Object: Book One will be available in a matter of hours.  We’re just waiting on it to finish processing with Amazon.  I’ll have more on that later (along with a link to the book).  Right now I have to go to work, which sucks because I haven’t slept since the night before last.  I’m just excited and wanted to post something quickly.  I’m going to need a long nap later.

Woohoo!

Stepping It Up–Followers, Please Read


We’ve passed the halfway point in the campaign with less than seven days to go, and right now we’re exactly halfway to our goal with $500.

This sounds great, but $500 of $1000 is actually $0.  So to encourage you guys to throw us a bone, I’m making a modification to a few of the reward tiers.  I can’t make these changes on the campaign itself (you can’t edit a tier that has already been pledged), but I hope you’ll trust me to make good on these modifications, or else you probably shouldn’t be subscribed to my blog.  Haha.

Here they are the modifications:

For a $3 pledge I will send you a digital copy of all my books, including those published under the pseudonym Lily White.  These can be in any ereader format or in PDF.

For a $15 pledge, I will send you digital copies of all the books along with your paperback of The Object: Book One.

For a $40 pledge, you will receive the two paperbacks promised for the $35 pledge, digital copies of all books, and a print of any illustration from the current episodes.

If you can’t tell, we’re really counting on this Kickstarter campaign completing.  This is our chance to turn the city of Louisville on to the story and gain the local following we need in order for the story to grow.  The great thing is that you, as a reader, will benefit from this in a big way.  With popularity in Louisville, we’ll be able to attract some of the better artistic and musical talent in the area to collaborate with us and make your reading experience so much better.

We appreciate your participation in The Object, and we really do want to be able to offer this story to you for free.  That’s the whole idea of this thing, and it’s one of the reasons I run free promotions on Amazon so much (that and the guaranteed sales boosts thereafter, which provide the income to comfortably run this blog and serial).

But we hope you’ll understand that we’re just getting off the ground, and we need help.  We won’t ask you for money again.

Thanks everyone.

Winston
