Important Update for Issues 3 and 4

Hello Awesome Backers:

Happy New Year!

By now, almost everyone should have received their packages with a few exceptions.  If you haven't filled out your survey, you can find it through this link: https://boston-metaphysical-society-mystery-at-pikes-peak-1-2.backerkit.com/

ISSUES 3 AND 4

I've been holding off announcing this for privacy reasons and until I had more definitive information, but now is the right time...

Elisabeth, my artist, was in a some what serious car accident a number of months ago, and though she was generally all right, her hands were injured. She has been recuperating and is in physical therapy. The good news is that she is being cleared to work in a few weeks (probably early February) and is excited to start drawing again. The bad news is we are way behind my previous schedule. Obviously, only Elisabeth's health and recovery matter, so I'm not concerned about that. The issues will be completed. It will just take longer than I had anticipated.

Once I see how we're progressing, I'll be able to better plan the next Kickstarter. As usual, I will keep you posted.

In the meantime, I have decided to move forward with something that's been on the back burner for awhile. 

BOSTON METAPHYSICAL SOCIETY VOL.  1 SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION HARDBACK

Many of you have been asking when I was going to produce a hardback version, and the answer is, "I am this year!"  I'll have more images in a later post, but it will have a cover by Rebekah Isaacs (BZRKR, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel & Faith, etc.), plus pin up art, weapons sketches from Granville's workshop, and a brand new 10 page story.

I'm looking to launch the Kickstarter in March. 

Not to forget my colleagues, here are a couple of...

Hello Awesome Backers:

The packing party was a resounding success as we packed over 300 Gemini mailers.  (A big thank you to Markeia and James B). All were picked up by USPS on Monday, and I believe a number of them are being delivered today in the Southern California area. I was also able to do more packing over the last couple of days, so we have over 400 boxes and/or Gemini mailers out the door to both US and non-US backers. 

I have only done a few of the metal covers, but they are coming. Please note that I will be on vacation next week, but I'll pack as many of the remaining 128 as I can. Otherwise, I'll get to them when I return. Unless something weird happens, I should have them all done before Christmas. 

And please let me know how you like the new story!

Once again, thank you for your patience.

Best, Madeleine

The Comics Have Arrived!!
3 months ago – Wed, Nov 29, 2023 at 03:14:28 PM

Hello Awesome Backers:

I'm happy to report the comics have finally been delivered, and they look fabulous!

Boston Metaphysical Society: Mystery at Pikes Peak Issues 1 and 2, plus my shoe.

Here's what happens next...I've got about 1000 of these to sign, bag, and board before Saturday when the team is getting together to pack up as many as we can. I plan on a pick up from USPS Next Monday (12/4) which will get out 2/3 of over 500 Gemini mailers/boxes, etc.  So it will be a big push as I want to be done with this before I leave on vacation on the 12th. (Wish us luck.)

We still have about 50 backers who have still not filled out their survey. If you have lost your Backerkit link, you can retrieve it here: https://boston-metaphysical-society-mystery-at-pikes-peak-1-2.backerkit.com/

I seriously need a Margarita right now, but there's too much to be done, so I'll save that for later.  In the meantime, be sure to check out these terrific campaigns going on right now.

New Shipping Update
3 months ago – Sat, Nov 18, 2023 at 09:19:49 AM

Hello Awesome Backers:

Unfortunately, there has been another delay. I found out last night that my printer was given the wrong information from the freight forwarder and the comics were released from customs yesterday (11/17) and not on the 13th like I was previously told. (Bah.) They are going to try and get it on a truck next week, but with the Thanksgiving holiday they probably won't arrive until the week of Nov. 27th.  I'm in the process of letting my packing crew know, and I will reschedule that as well.  As usual, I will keep you posted.

The good news is that the digital rewards have been sent out. I still have 70 outstanding surveys, most of which are digital, so please fill out your survey so I can get those to you. If you have lost it, please use this link to retrieve your survey.

For those of you in the U.S., I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving.
