anachronauts stars fall make-good offer

28 11 2012

The final saga of anachronauts, Stars Fall, officially ended on Christmas of last year. The plan was to have the retail book — with its retail-only bonus chapter, which closes the side-saga of the other retail-only bonus chapters — available soon after.

Then all hell broke loose in the personal lives of the writer and the artist, and that didn’t happen. It’s still not quite ready due to the delay in getting the cover art formatted appropriately for Amazon’s templates. But the story itself, that retail-only chapter, is done and has been done for some time…

While I can’t start passing out books, I can at least give you that chapter. And because this has been delayed so damn long I’m going to do it for free.

Here’s the deal. If you are planning to buy the retail version, as an e-book or paper book, and you’ve been supporting me the whole way through, I’d like you to email me and request a free copy of the Stars Fall bonus chapter. This is an honor system promise that you will in fact be picking up the actual book, and in return, I’ll give you a pre-release copy of that story in thanks — and in apology for the delay.

If you haven’t read any of the other retail book stories (first age, forsaken shores, london’s fog) I’ll warn this free story will be complete nonsense to you and likely spoil the fun. It’s a direct continuation of those stories. But… if you HAVE read them, and you plan to get Stars Fall once it’s available, I’m happy to send you the final chapter.

Hopefully this’ll make up for the delay. I promise this will not be an issue with City of Angles; I may or may not be running a Kickstarter to get that cover art launched, but regardless it’ll be done in a timely manner.

Thanks for your support and thank you for reading. New CoA up on Monday, I believe.

Eh. I’ve waited this long. I can hold out for the retail release.

I have been mostly a lurker, since I fell behind with the stories and didn’t want to spoiler myself, but I am still buying your second book. I look forward to reading the bonus story once your book is out. I figured I would post to let you know I’m still here.

I wish I had kept my facebook to keep up with you guys though. I am sorry to hear things are rough for you guys. You and Jen are awesome people, and I hope things get better.

Fortunately, things have largely gotten better. After MONTHS of flailing around I’ve finally got some treatments that help with the various things that emerged this year. Jen’s also getting healthier, but has far more demands on her time than I do due to family. Anyway, we’re aiming to get the physical book out as soon as we can.
