I don’t currently have plans to release an official timeline, no. If some industrious fan wants to cobble together their best estimation, I’m sure it would be appreciated.
The Secret Files will definitely be available to non-backers! It won’t see a print run for a while, thanks to its size, but the digital version of it will be available within the next couple of months. I was planning to do a print run of the Timely Tales after the first twelve were finished, but last night I started piecing the work together in InDesign…
…and realized that the first six issues are 250 pages just on their own. SO. I’m going to go even more into comic book mode and release the Timely Tales as six-issue arcs. I’m going to either make the print run one of the Retcons backer goals, or open up preorders to fund the run. Opinions are very much welcomed.
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.
