ORIGINS INDIEGOGO BACKERS:
If your backer level included any merchandise in addition to the book itself and you have NOT received an e-mail regarding your print/color band choices, contact me ASAP. I’ve sent out three e-mails over the past year, and some of you have yet to get back to me. I can’t send you your items if I don’t know what you want, so PLEASE check your spam filters if you have not confirmed your choices.
I explained them here. Printing a 50-page color book costs as more than printing the 300-page B&W novels. I had much more material than that, and I was afraid that people would be unhappy with such a slim offering.
If you gave Ry your updated address, that is where your backer items will be sent. If your book bounces back to me, I’ll let you know!
Several. Which is kind of a problem, because I have to pay postage twice for them. If your address has changed since the IndieGoGo campaign, PLEASE EMAIL ME. When the books are returned, I try to contact the backer and let them know that their item was not delivered. It will be up to you to pay the shipping cost if your book is returned to me.
Hypothetically, yes. But it would be INCREDIBLY dysphoric, and all the things could go wrong. If he were more than a few weeks into the pregnancy, shifting to a non-womb-having form would probably end in fatal internal hemorrhaging.
Well, we know how Gloria’s story ends (at least for now), so there will be the expected level of heartbreak, I think. As for the second part of your question, Amira doesn’t engage in physical fights often, but she can more than hold her own. Corbin was adamant when it came to his loved ones learning to protect themselves, so he started training with her during their teen years. Demonstrating how to beat the snot out of someone was how Corbin showed love.
Fun fact: Mal did not inherit his fondness for bladed weapons from his father— not directly, at least. Amira likes knives, and she’s very good with them.
Between the holidays and my unfortunate case of strep throat, I’m a little behind schedule with January’s Timely Tale. I’m pushing the release out to the 7th. I’ll post the full solicit once I have the cover, but for now, I’ll give you a teaser: this one’s all about the Femme Fatale.
