Announcing the Kickstarter Launch Day

Thursday June 4, 2015 at 12:00 EST will be when the Kickstarter for The Death of Dulgath (third Riyria Chronicle novel) will launch. You can check it out now at the link above to see what level you want to pledge at and figure out any add-ons you might want to purchase. There are a number of additional perks for early backers.  For instance:
  • 100 Discounted Early-bird ebooks
  • 50 Discounted Early-bird trade paperbacks
  • 50 Discounted Early-bird hardcover editions
  • Anyone who pledges in the first 48 hours will receive a free short story, Professional Integrity. This was released in the Blackguards anthology released through Ragnarok Publications. It will be delivered just as soon as rights revert back to me, which will be in early September.
For those who aren't familiar with this project, it's intention is to raise $26,000 of the $33,600 needed to do a hardcover print, warehouse the books, and distribute them through retail stores.  If the project doesn't fund, there will still be a book, but it will be released only as a trade paperback, ebook, and audio versions. Plus, we'll not be able to provide the cool add-on stuff like t-shirts, posters, and coffee mugs.

Robin has worked hard to produce this Kickstarter, and, like all she sets her mind too, has done a bang-up job. I think this will be a lot of fun. I hope you'll join us.

  1. Will any of the books be signed? Also, am I reading the pledge levels correctly that Hard Core gets me the hardcover book, but (He)early Bird is only a discount on the book price?

  2. All printed copies will be signed - and you can get them personalized if you want. Also, I'm thinking o a way to get signed ebooks as well ;-) We'll see.

    Yes, Hard Core gets you a hardcover version and (H)early Bird will get you the same thing as Hard Core but at a 20% discount for a limited number of people.

  6. I'm excited the kickstarter is almost here. I sad that I will be in meetings when it first opens, but if I don't get an early bird I'll just pay the regular price. Any bets on how fast it funds?

  7. I'm in! I'm having fun watching the numbers climb. I'd love to see this fund within 24 hours.

  8. This is going really well! Having had a quick look on this site, the only suggestion I would make is that maybe we can place the kickstarter with the other kickstarter stuff on the right hand side bar? :)
