We know you’re as excited as we are about the upcoming print release of Erekos by A.M. Tuomala. September is a long, long time away, though, and so we wanted to give you the opportunity to pre-order the book!
For those who pre-order the trade paperback of Erekos, we’re also offering some special opportunities – you can choose to get a gift package that includes a short story set in the world of Erekos, a print of an original illustration by the author, or other neat goodies. You can even order a limited-edition handbound copy of the book, for something really special.
Why Kickstarter? We think it’s the easiest way to manage pre-orders, and also the safest for everyone involved. While the print release of Erekos will happen no matter what, we know some readers have been burned in the past by pre-ordering and paying for books that never ship – we want to avoid that worry. With Kickstarter, you sign up and “back” a project by pledging to the project. You’re not charged until the project reaches full funding – in this case, it’s a low minimum, just to help us gauge interest in the print run and determine how many books we’ll need to print right off the bat.
Erekos is scheduled for release on September 20, 2011. Your pre-ordered copy will ship then.
Thank you for supporting your friendly neighbourhood small press, and happy reading!
