cabala wrote in ThrowiGames Non-KS Project - False Promises:I agree that the blue artwork against the blue cover looks great!

I know absolutely nothing about publishing/printing of books but I am surprised the print house finds that condition acceptable. It seems like the result of using heavy cardstock on a home printer then folding it.

I think a full blue cover would look best but a small white band on the spine will certainly not detract from the aesthetic of the module.

So in a nutshell great job and thanks for the updates. I look forward to the completed work!


Yes, I really like the blue as well.  I'm still waiting on the print proof (turns out, when a family-run print business decides to take a long Thanksgiving holiday, they mean a LONG holiday, like a week).

I've updated the the cover to include a thin white band on the spine - I'm just waiting to see how it turns out.

If they do a good job with this, I'll discuss future work with color cardstock (they don't offer that currently, at least not in the weight I'm using for the cover).  tbd.

Thanks!

Thom

*** EDIT 12/6/2014 - I did get the new print proof yesterday - it's beautiful!  I haven't had a moment with the home PC to upload the pictures (and the first gen iphone won't do it), but should be able to later today.  Pretty nice! ***

I just got off the phone with the printer - apparently they are behind after their long holiday... As they say, the squeaky wheel gets the grease - my new print proof will be available this afternoon.  :-)

Pics to show up later today...

Thanks!

Okay, I owe all of you pictures still -  I'll try to get them uploaded tonight in between painting (bathroom renovation hell)...

Meanwhile, the printing of 70 has been ordered - they are supposed to print them on Wednesday (fingers crossed).

Thanks,

Thom

*** EDIT 12/12: I picked up the books yesterday afternoon.  I'm going to start signing/numbering them tonight, and packaging them up this weekend for a staged mailing next week (Mon-Wed).  ***

A quick note:  books are printed, ready for pickup this morning.  I'll have them in my hands this afternoon!

All the front pages, signed and numbered...

Notice my play copy has some nasty print smudging.

More than half the books were sent today (too many, and my rural post office employees and customers freak out!)...

The other half goes tomorrow, won't need Wednesday for shipping.

Please let me know when you get them!

The other half of the books left today - all are in the mail.  I suspect those of you on the east coast will start to see them in a few days.

Thanks again!  This community is indeed great.

My wife said mine arrived in the mail but I'm stuck in the hospital recovering from stupid appendicitis!  :roll: Thanks Thom, can't wait to check it out and give it a read.

I received my copy on Thursday.  I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but the cover art and production is well done.  Thank you.

Got mine too!  (I'm not sure when; it was buried under a pile of holiday letters, and I found it yesterday.)  Thanks, Thom.

Recieved my copies and have read it.  Fantastic.  Great set-up for the next couple of mods.
