How’s it going out there in internet-land?

Things here are moving along still. I finished the Reqrite on teh Cybernetics, Genetics, Races, and Classes sections of the Kalijor RPG earlier this week. Last week I added the Alignment info, so that’s in good shape. I am now giving the combat section another pass before I add in information on leveling/character progression, then we are down to huge play-testing and tweaking efforts. What that means is, we could be gearing up for the Kickstarter campaign here shortly to line up funds for art and publication! Don’t get me wrong, there is still much to do, but after this week it will be mostly tweaks, adjustments, and minor content additions, such as skills and equipment that is needed to make sure the main book has absolutely everything that is needed for a full, robust, starter campaign.

 

As soon as I put that to bed, I am diving back into revisions on the Fifth Key. Editing is at about 50% and I have comments back from one of my early test readers. Not much came up that was unexpected. A few tweaks need to be made, but I kind of wanted to adjust those thigns anyway so it was good to hear someone else agree with me. I have plans in place for most of those adjustments and none of it will take very long so I can probably even get them into the copy my editor has before she gets to them in her first pass. This is a good thing!

Oh! And new bookmark art just came in, so I am working on a set of four new bookmarks for 2013!

 

Other news.

Sales for the holidays:

  • There is still a sale going on at the Kalijor Press Book Store. By using coupon code: FELICITAS (use all caps), you can save 20% on your entire order through December 14th.
  • All Kalijor eBooks (except Jumah’s World) are on sale, on all eBook platforms, for $0.99 each, through the end of 2012! Head on over to Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, the Kobo store, or iBooks, and grab the first dour novels for $4 (plus any applicable taxes/fees from said stores)!

Gift Cards from Square!

  • I use Square to process credit cards and such while I am at conventions, and they have just released a new feature that allows customers to buy and gift to others cards that they can use to pay for stuff from Kalijor Press! To be clear, this will only work if folks are buying books directly from us, either at a convention, or over the phone/email, but it is still a very cool and convenient way to gift someone the amazing world of Kalijor. To take advantage of this all you need to do is download the ‘Square Wallet’ app on your smart phone (iOS or Android), then search for the business ‘Kalijor Press’. Once you have us in your Square Wallet, you can purchase gift cards, send them to friends and family, and even pay us for books right from the app when you see us at conventions! The gift cards will work from teh app, through email, in Apple’s PassBook app, or can even be printed out and scaned at the time of purchase.

I think that’s about it for now. So, I’ll let y’all get back to your days. Thank you all for your love and support and I look forward to all the awesome that is coming in 2013!
