[Pugmire] July Update!


Hello good dogs, and excellent cats! So much to cover, so let’s get to it!


In case you’ve missed it, the Mau Kickstarter is live! We funded in just under an hour, which is wonderful. At the time I’m writing this, we’re over $91,000, and we still have nine days to go! And just like with this Kickstarter, once you back you have access to the Early Access PDF in the first backer update. So if you haven’t backed it yet, you can go check it out right here:


To the printers!

I’ve done some last-minute proofing with Mike Chaney, we both had some final corrections, and now it’s really happening! The book, dice, cards, pins, and screen are all being printed, then will get shipped to our distribution warehouse. From there, everything will be compiled, and they’ll start mailing things out! When the Kickstarter launched, we predicted that we’d start shipping in August 2017, and thus far we seem to be on track for that date.

Fiction Anthology and Pan’s Guide

Writers are rewriting their stories (in fact, I finished rewriting mine a while ago). Pan’s Guide is still on my desk for review, unfortunately — there’s so much going on, and unfortunately that got delayed longer than I hoped it would. But I’m planning to dive back into that right after I finish writing this update!

Earplay and Audio Drama

The non-interactive audio drama is written, and off to a team to produce. They’re getting me samples so we can dial in the right voices for the project, and then they’ll start making funny voices in front of a microphone.
As for Earplay, I listened to the latest batch of files, and sent off the last set of corrections. I also worked with Earplay to make an interactive teaser for Pugmire. Think of it like a trailer for a movie, only you can make a couple of choices as well. It’s a short experience, and you’ll be able to check it out for yourself very soon!


As I mentioned last month, I’m now deep in the process of moving to Ireland. My wife is already over there, while I’m still in Atlanta wrapping up final things and getting Prince Murray Pug ready for his Irish adventure. We both get on our respective flights on the 15th, so it’s just a few days away! As we wrap up everything for this Kickstarter, the move will mark a good transition to start thinking through everything for Monarchies of Mau (and maybe beyond!)
