Fun story: I had 300 of the books bagged, packaged, and labeled by hand. Then I took them to the post office, and found out the lady I’d talked to on the phone had given me the wrong instructions. SO I had to open them all back up, repack them, and print out new labels. Poster HQ is just me, now, so it has been An Adventure.
All that being said, the first few backer levels will be sent out this week. I’m hoping to have the rest in the mail before the end of the year.
Corbin is one of my favorite characters to write. The fact that he’s no longer around in Origins has made writing him problematic, of course, so I’ve ended up writing bits of his past here and there. I was waffling on whether or not I’d end up writing a novel about the Set, but then I realized I’d already written 40k of stuff from Corbin’s POV. The likelihood that we’ll see a novel about the Set’s younger years has been steadily increasing.
Thank you so much for taking the time to send me a note! I’m so glad you enjoyed Secret Identities.
When he switched over from developing physical film at home to using digital cameras, Corbin converted the Nest’s darkroom into a sunroom for Ellie. She basks in the UV light for an hour or two each day. Natural sunlight is best, but the artificial light keeps her going year-round. Her molting period is unavoidable, though.
The wristbands will be up in the TPC storeenvy store within the next week. I had the boxes of wristbands in storage, so I need to unpack some stuff to get at them. I’ll make an announcement as soon as they’ve been added!
It’s not something that I’d been planning on. TPC is a YA series (though it pushes that classification some), so while I don’t shy away from discussing/including sex, I haven’t considered doing a book revolving around it. It might be something I’d revisit a few books from now, when the current set of characters are a bit older.
Upon closer inspection, you will find that the Timely Tale has not actually been released yet! It will be available on the 1st of December, both as a download link for subscribers and as an ebook for $0.99 on the official posterchildren Gumroad store. The post that went up today was only the advertisement. :)
(For future reference, all Timely Tales are released on the 1st of the month!)
Dang, I forgot that I was planning to do a Posterchildren Q&A chat. I’m going to have time (and quiet) on Saturday, so I’m going to do one at 3pm PST. I’ll be answering pre-selected questions for about an hour, then fielding free-for-all questions for a half hour or so.
Send your questions to the Maillardet’s tumblr askbox! I’ll probably do another Q&A in the future (with more warning beforehand), so don’t fret if you can’t make this one.
