One of my Patrons asked for Cort’s Auridos Shipyards™ shirt to be made available for purchase, so I’ve done that for a limited time here.
So this is a test poll to make sure they work ahead of our next Starcaster vote, but I also thought it might be a good time to do a little “market research.”
I’m working on putting together some books collecting the work I’ve done over the past five years. There are three books I’m working on:
- The Starcaster Chronicles Volume One: Issues #1-5 with extras (species profiles, lore, details on the paths not taken, etc)
- Analog and D-Pad Volume One: Issues#1-5 with extras (All of the Patreon Analog and D-Pad stuff, plus the original three issues of Analog and D-Pad from waaaaay back in the day).
- Ctrl+Alt+Del Volume One: Pretty much everything else I’ve done in the past five years, organized by section (All of the console wars together, all of the campaign together, etc), and including all of the extra stuff from Patreon, etc.
Now obviously I’m going to put these together with as much additional content as I can, and I can offer them digitally. But a lot of people like to own books, and that’s going to require Kickstarter. I can either tackle each book individually as its own project, or I can wrap all three of them up into one larger Kickstarter. Logistically that’s tougher and more work, but if a lot of people would be buying more than one book, it would save you money on shipping and make it worth it in the long run.
So I’m trying to get an idea of demand/interest for early planning. Each book would be >$20, and there would likely be some sort of early bird discount for buying all three, if that influences your decision at all. These are also much smaller books than the massive, heavy collection I did a few years ago, so shipping wouldn’t be quite as bad.
