Another (Last, I Promise) Delay

lfneJason L Blair25 February 2014

I am so very sorry for this. I need to push the release date back another week, to next Wednesday, March 5th. I wish I didn’t but I can’t avoid it. Not without releasing an inferior product anyway. And as a small-press publisher with two lines, I pride myself on releasing the best product I can. I hope my track record speaks to that.

What needs done?
Revisions. I realized the character creation chapter was lacking in some key things and I need to punch it up. I also discovered I have a lot more to say about ghosts—which are important to this book—and want to expand that section. Lastly, the episode, “My Soul to Keep”, needs finetuning to tie up some weirdness, add action to some scenes, and strengthen the monster’s presence.

What’s the hold up? You already had an extension.
I did, and I was working on the book when a huge opportunity fell in my lap that could be something major for Little Fears. But it carried a tight deadline that required that I prioritize it. I wouldn’t push back work on Book 3 for something minor so please trust me when I say this is crazy exciting for me, for Little Fears, and hopefully for you.

What happens in a week? Another delay?
I hope not! While I get good work done during the week, it’s the weekends where I can really carve away some time. I’m going to keep working on Book 3 and aim to polish everything up on Saturday and Sunday.

Book 3 – Slight Delay

lfneJason L Blair13 February 2014

Hello, everyone! I have some bad news but I’m afraid I can’t avoid it. I need to delay the PDF release of Book 3: Blessed are the Children from tomorrow to Wednesday, February 26th. I am very, very sorry for the delay but some Real Life that will result in upcoming travel came up and I need the extra time.

I should have it out next Friday—and if it’s ready, I will release it—but I want to build in a buffer so I don’t need to delay again if I miss that date.

Again, my sincerest apologies for this delay.

Blessed are the Children Preview: Spirit Monsters

lfneJason L Blair07 February 2014

My apologies for the tardiness in posting the final preview this week! But here it is, a look at the monster chapter of Book 3: Blessed are the Children, including a look at some new monster rules and a hint of the nasty creatures that await inside the book’s pages.

In addition to the regular monsters every child faces, the blessed attract other types of nasty critters. These monsters will hunt regular kids as well but they have a particular tie or attraction to the blessed, whether it’s a need for all that sweet sweet Spirit, a twisted kinship with those whose body-soul connection are different than others, or an ability to home in on whatever it is that makes blessed children who they are.

Blessed are the Children Preview: The Faithful

lfneJason L Blair03 February 2014

I have three Book 3 previews in the hopper for this week. If you missed the preview of the Introduction, check it out here. Come back on Wednesday and Friday for new previews as well!

Lots of people believe in something greater, including many children. But the faithful feel something deep down in their bones—no, deeper than that. The feeling of someething else reaches through them and clutches their very soul. And by focusing on that connection, the faithful can unleash strange powers and take advantage of their Spirit in ways other kids cannot.

Book 3 Update and Cover Reveal

lfneJason L Blair20 January 2014

Hello, everyone!

First off, thank you very much for your continued patience as production continues on the latest Little Fears Nightmare Edition book. I wanted to give you all a quick update as to where things stand:

Writing: It’s going well! Day job has had some serious spikes in time dedication and energy but I’m putting as much time into Book 3 as I can. It’s coming along nicely. All the character chapters are complete and a good chunk of the world chapters are done. The biggest single chunk that remains is the included episode, “My Soul to Keep.” I aim to make it pretty scary.

Art: Everything that’s been commissioned for the interior has been in for a while though I might need one or two interiors to accent some of the additions. I don’t see anything major though.

Cover: In! Veronica Jones delivered a knock-out cover for the book. She continues to be the face of the line, and I’m really happy with what she delivered. Speaking of which, here’s the cover to Book 3: Blessed are the Children.

Book 3 Update

lfneJason L Blair06 November 2013

Hello, everyone!

I wanted to update you all on the progress of Book 3. Writing is going well. I should be wrapped up by mid-month. Then it’ll enter the edit process for refinement, typo fixing, etc. I’ll start doing chapter previews here soon so you all can see what to expect in the book.

I still have art coming in (some of which you can see at the end of this update) but there have been some significant delays on that front. Namely, some serious Real Life things have pushed the cover back which is why I haven’t revealed it yet.

The Kickstarter surveys have all come in. I’m currently compiling them and following up about add-ons so I can get a figure on the dice. Then I’ll put in the order (and possibly do a public order option if there’s interest).

So that’s where things are at for now. If you have any questions, please drop a comment. Enjoy the art below!

Book 3 Art Update

lfneJason L Blair07 October 2013

Book 3 is chugging along! As you may have noticed, I just put out a call for illustrators but I also wanted to show you some of what the current cast of illustrators is handing in.

First off, we have a young girl pouring her feelings into a safe place.

And next, a boy creates a barrier to protect himself from the creatures in the woods behind his house.
