Production Update on PATREON STORIES: VOLUME TWO

Hi Folks!

We’re getting into a very busy time of year for everyone, so I’ll try to keep my updates short and sweet instead of rambling.

As you know if you read the Revival production update over at LetterPress Publications the other week, I spent much of my summer talking to printers after the one I had worked with for many years closed their doors. (They actually printed the very first Cemetery Dance Publications hardcover way back in 1992!)

The most urgent matter in my search were the BIG books on a tight schedule like Revival, but the old printer had also printed Patreon Stories: Volume One for me.

In September, it came time to find out which of the many printers I had talked to over the summer might be able to handle Patreon Stories: Volume Two.

I won’t get too far into the weeds, but the short version is this: a printer I actually drive past on my 90 minute commute to the Cemetery Dance offices will be printing this volume. As a kid, my family would drive by that printing plant on the way to vacations and the such, and I always thought it would be awesome if they printed one of my books, so this is kind of like coming full circle.

This morning, I added the names of all of my supporters as of October 31 to the special THANK YOU page that concludes the book, and I’ll be sending the printer all of the files next week.

I don’t have a schedule from them yet, but I’m hoping the Signed Trade Paperback and the Signed Limited Edition hardcover will ship by the end of the year. The super fancy Lettered Edition will take a few months longer to complete due to all of the hand-binding, etc. The plan is for it to make a nice matching set with the Volume One Lettered Edition, though.

Thank you, as always, for all of your support!

Best,
Brian

BONUS CONTENT: First Look at the REVIVAL Promotional Items!

Just a quick note to show off the full set of REVIVAL promotional items I made to test the capabilities of some different vendors for these kinds of items. I think most of them turned out really nice:

For those of you on the LetterPress supporter levels over at Patreon, you should have already received one shipment with a few of these, and the rest will be going out next week. Please email me at brianfreeman@cemeterydance.com if you have any questions.

Thank you again for all of your support!

Best,
Brian

BONUS CONTENT: A Few Random Unorganized Thoughts On Selling “Well”

This post was inspired by a recent problem I experienced with Amazon.com while at my day job. They didn’t believe we were the publisher of a book (that they had been selling since 2016!) and eventually a bestselling author’s personal assistant had to get involved to say, “Yes, they are!” Next step would have been to involve the author’s agent, and my head still hurts just from thinking about THAT.
