Shipping Nightmares

hblf, lfneJason L Blair28 February 2015

But in a good way!

If you’ve been waiting on orders from me for anything (but especially anything Little Fears or Book 3 Kickstarter-related), your orders are all packed up and ready to ship. I’ll be occupying a whole lot of a postal worker’s time on Monday getting all these out to you.

Thank you so much for your patience and kind words during this time. This will (oh-so-very hopefully) close the book on everything you’ve been waiting for—except for getting the Little Fears novel The Wolf Pact finished and out to you! *gulp*

Where Are My Books?!

lfneJason L Blair13 February 2015

It’s a good question!

Some backers of the LFNE Book 3 Kickstarter are still awaiting their rewards, unfortunately, as are some other folks who ordered the LFNE corebook. I’ve been fielding emails about this and trying to keep on top of the situation but have some (slightly) bad news.

But first, the good news! You will get your rewards. Absolutely. And you should get them in about a month.

Why a month? That’s the bad news. In ordering books for the Kickstarter rewards, I kept the number fairly close to what I’d need, with a little wiggle room for other orders that might come in. Books came in, I sent out packages. I missed some, heard from the folks, and I sent out more packages.

Sadly, not all of the packages sent out arrived at their destinations. And I haven’t seen them returned to me yet. For those who absolutely should have received their rewards already, I sent out replacements as the emails came in. This dipped into my reserve, as did other incoming orders. Then more reports (mostly international, especially the UK) came in and I started sending out others.

And then I ran out of books. But not out of emails from folks who haven’t received their stuff.

From what I’ve heard, it’s not many of you. Good! But that doesn’t help anyone still waiting. I should eventually get the majority of those packages back but that process can take up to six months (seriously) for reasons I can’t hope to comprehend.

I have another printing in process currently and should have the books by end of next week or middle of the following. (I’m not sure how Presidents Day is going to effect printing and shipping.) So the books are on their way. When they’re in, they’re going immediately out.

My conservativeness in printing worked against me hard here and some of you are paying for it. I am truly sorry. But I’m making up for it as quick and best as I can.

Now in Print: BOOK 3: BLESSED ARE THE CHILDREN

lfneJason L Blair08 September 2014

I’m winding down on sending the Kickstarter rewards out so I feel comfortable opening the print version of Book 3: Blessed are the Children for sale to the public. You can grab it here or over on the Products page. Any orders submitted should ship out early next week.

LFNEBook3Cover

Title: Book 3: Blessed are the Children
Size: 6×9, 128pp
Binding: Paperback
Stock Code: FSZ003
MSRP: $20 (US)
Back cover text:

Not every child is the same.

They are different than other kids.
Some would say strange.
Some might say cursed.

But they are called the blessed.

Some are born without souls.
Others, with more than one.
Some are secretly monsters.
Others are children of faith
given powers beyond belief.

And then there are those
who wander this world
long after death.
Searching. Wanting.

Hoping.

Praying to die
or to live again.

Every child is special.

Some more than others.

Book 3: Blessed are the Children focuses on the realm of spirits and ghosts within the world of Little Fears Nightmare Edition. From the kids whose souls are different than others to the monsters who pursue them, Blessed are the Children introduces six new character options including Gifted, Soulless, and Changeling, numerous creatures from Closetland, rules for possession, a new take on the Spirit Drain ability, a full standalone episode called “My Soul to Keep”, and more.

Rewards are Shipping!

lfneJason L Blair20 August 2014

Just a quick note to let all the Book 3 Kickstarter backers know that I’ve started shipping the rewards this week. I’m doing them in batches each day but should have them all done this week or early next.

Once all the books have shipped, I will put Book 3 up for sale on the site for general purchase.

Thank you all for your patience! Your wait is almost over.

The Books are Almost Here!

lfneJason L Blair25 July 2014

A couple days ago, I received notification that the books had shipped. I checked on the tracking number a minute ago–and they’re scheduled for delivery today! Awesome!

I’ll start putting together shipments this weekend for shipping starting next week. It’ll take multiple shipments to get everything out but, for those of you waiting on physical product, the wait is almost over!

The Book 3 Proof is Here!

lfneJason L Blair05 June 2014

The print proof for Little Fears Nightmare Edition Book 3: Blessed are the Children is here! And it looks good!

I have approved the proof and set production into motion. I should have book on-hand very soon. Which means backer rewards should start going out inside a couple weeks. I’ll update everybody when the books arrive and envelopes start getting stuffed. Below are some (awesome camera-phone) pics of the proof. (Click on each image for a bigger picture.)

The (Long Overdue) Dice and Book 3 Print Update

lfneJason L Blair29 April 2014

The Dice are In!

They came in a couple weeks ago, actually. If you ordered only dice then your order is in the mail. You should have it by the end of the week (I hope) or early next week at the latest. If you don’t receive them, let me know! Check out the pics of the dice below:

These are beautiful, high-quality dice produced by the craftsfolk at Chessex. I’m very happy with the quality of these dice.

Book 3 is Printing!

Book 3 is at the printers and (I very much hope) on track to be in my hands, and then soon into yours, in a couple weeks. This is later than anticipated but I’m glad I took the time to go over the book, incorporate your feedback, and clean up some typos and layout errors. It’ll be a more beautiful and more useful book for it.

And that’s where things are at. Thank you all for your patience. I really appreciate it. Once the books are in, I’ll have a lot of envelope stuffing to do but I look forward to it.

Book 3 Update and Goodie Bags #2

lfneJason L Blair24 March 2014

Book 3!
I updated the PDF for Book 3 on Sunday. This includes putting in a missing power for the gifted and some general clean-up of the text. I plan to upload the file to the printer on Wednesday so if you find any problems, please let me know! A huge thanks to those of you who emailed me questions and issues over the past two weeks. I really appreciate it.

Goodie Bags #2!
Watch out for some new monsters this week as the next Goodie Bags hits DriveThruRPG. This one is about Baba Yaga’s Children, the grotesque creatures she makes (and abandons) throughout Closetland.

Inspiring Fear: The Babadook

lfneJason L Blair27 February 2014

Put this one of your radars, folks.

Back in 2005, writer/director Jennifer Kent put out a short film titled Monster. The movie focused on a mother, trying to soothe her son’s fear of the creatures in his closet, who becomes aware of a sinister presence that may be all too real. Kent has expanded that idea, with the help of a successful Kickstarter*, into a full-length feature called The Babadook.

While I haven’t found a slated release date yet, it will show at some festivals this year. I really hope it gets a wide release or, at the very least, a DVD/BluRay release. It looks fantastic, and I love the mythology the trailer hints at.

You check out the trailer below.

The blurb on the Kickstarter says:

THE BABADOOK is a psychological horror about a mother who becomes possessed by a monster that wills her to kill her 6-year-old son.

Which, for the record, you’ll find in Book 3: Blessed are the Children, which focuses on souls and ghosts and possession and the kids stuck in the middle of that mess. I cannot wait to see this film.

*I’m kicking myself for not having run across the Kickstarter when it was going. How did I miss it?
