With only seven days left for The Enemy Within’s Kickstarter, I have to be ready for the project to go anywhere. It could find success, and it might not. As I’ve said in the video, in either case, the book will find release. It’s just a matter of when.
The point of the Kickstarter was to bring The Enemy Within to people a little sooner, and to offer up some cool rewards that aren’t easy to deliver to people in smaller batches. There’s no reason to despair, however, if the Kickstarter doesn’t reach $2000. Barring some unforeseen personal financial crisis, I should be able to pay the editor out of pocket by the middle of July. Until then, it’s locked in his possession If I were to try and get it early, he’d bite off my ankles like an angry leprechaun. Whatever the case, I’ll keep you apprised of the situation through these updates.
After that, I’ll be working simultaneously on the Kaos and Mathias backstories, which will be released in episodic content on the website, and on this blog. I’m still not 100% sure of the format. It may be bi-weekly, or it may be monthly. I’m trying to make sure that the Kaos prequel material is ready by the time I’m ready to publish his prequel novel, but it’s hard to gauge that sort of thing. We’ll see what happens, in either case.
