Kickstarter Update #8 – Ready to Ship!

The Brandywine Prophet
The second Brandywine test copy arrived today and it looks beautiful (especially with Siren and Lighthouse beside it)! I approved it for distribution, so I SHOULD meet my September deadline : )

If you ordered The Accidental Siren or Lighthouse Nights, you should have already received your reward. If The Brandywine Prophet was part of your order, then your rewards ship next week!

The Day I Wore Purple
The good news is, this book is gonna be awesome : ) The bad news is, it’s going to take longer than I thought to finish the re-write. At this point, I can safely say that it will NOT be published by the October deadline, but I’ll have it finished before the beginning of the Christmas season (if I don’t lose my mind in the process).

I won’t update Kickstarter donors with every new development, but please stop by my blog for excerpts, character profiles, and other inside looks into my writing process!

Watch me build the 1000-year timeline.
Read the original prologue.

Killer Swag
Over the last month, I’ve been talking to an old Chicago friend about the possibility of designing shirts for each of my books. He’s a brilliant artist, and his work has been featured on The Big Bang Theory and the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love. At this point, he’s working on 1-2 designs for The Accidental Siren. When he finishes the designs, we’ll move forward with a pre-sale to raise the required funds for the shirts, screen-printing materials, etc. If the Siren shirt is a success, we’ll consider moving onto Lighthouse Nights!

I’ll have more info for you in a few weeks. In the meantime, check out his other designs below, and visit his Facebook page for more of his awesome work!

    I can’t wait for Brandywine to be out! And the shirts too! :) I’m seriously dying of laughter right now, Jake. I can’t believe you used the phrase “Killer Swag”! XD. I think that just made my night…lol.
