The Final Test Print & Locking Orders
2 months ago

Alrighty, the final test print arrives tomorrow (05/26/2021 here in the States)! The test prints before this look gorgeous and I fully expect this one to as well. I ordered this last print just to make sure the few things I had to fix were finalized (oh the joys of formatting). I want this book to be as perfect as I can make it as a solo creator.
That being said, with the final test print arriving, I should be ordering the final copies within a week :O This point arrived so quickly, and I am so happy with the final products. I believe I have truly made it the best I can, and that it is finally to the level I wanted it to be at! I am so excited for you all to see it.
Now, you should be checking your emails as the "Final Notice" emails should be arriving soon and you can change any updates to addresses you may have. The orders will lock in 48 hours (from this update) so make sure to check it. Of course, if you are having any issues and still need to update your address (within a week or so before I ship), please reach out to me and I am happy to help!
You can contact me in many ways but here are the quickest ways:
Additionally, you can email me at: email@example.com
As a note: I don't get to check my email as often, so it may be a day or two before I return confirmation.
Thanks for being with us for so long and having the patience as I finalize this book. I promise you that the wait on the cards and the book are worth it :D
Thanks everyone and have an AMAZING week!

That's right! The book is almost done :O
I have been working pretty much non-stop on it, and after many countless hours of work it is almost done. I still have some last minute finalizations to do (in-particular making sure the art looks beautiful on print and the formatting is close to perfect), but I am so close to completion.
I will be ordering another Test Print at the end of this week and as long as it looks good, I will be ordering the final copies and shipping shortly after.
So, hopefully I will get it sent out within the next month. BUT, I want to make sure this book is as perfect as I can make it, so I will only order the final copies after I have addressed all of your previous comments and questions in the new book. Thankfully, the few people I have shown the book to REALLY love it. I personally think it is absolutely stunning and even easier to understand and navigate.
I am shooting to have every book shipped by the end of May, but I will keep you posted. I am truly grateful for everyone's patience and I promise that the end result will be well worth the wait.
The next update I do should hopefully be the last one and you will all be receiving your books shortly after :D
Have an amazing week!

Real quick update this time. Good news, the test print arrived and the new font, layout, full page pictures, and general design are absolutely stunning. However, it still needs some work as I just now realized something I forgot that was very important.
Normally with printing you have an area of bleed that allows for the printer to properly cut it without ruining any pictures, etc. Typically the additional inches needed for bleed around the book are .125 each side (bringing the total to .25 additional inches total). For example: our book is an 8.5x11 copy (per the normal). That means our book's total edge should be 8.75x11.25. I forgot to multiply it and did it as 8.63x11.13...
And this is why I order test prints! Thankfully, this is an issue that I can quickly adjust in my publishing software while avoiding any additional issues with printing. So, the book is still well on its way to being completed.
I will send another update once I get to the final test print stages, and then you will get a notification to lock in your address before the book is sent :D
Test Print Ordered!

A test print for Veil of the Void has been officially ordered and shipped!!!
This print should be here by 03/27/2021!
After the test print arrives, I will verify the layouts, fonts, and pictures. As long as all of these look stunning, I will then do my last few passes on the book for editing and balancing purposes. Then, I will order one final test print and we should be good to go!
So, most likely, it will still be about a month or so until the books are completely finalized and shipped. Exciting news to say the least! I will make another update once the final test print is ordered to make sure everyone is kept in the loop.
We are so close to the goal!
Also, art time!
This is the bounty hunter specialization!
The Contractor for the Naturalist!
And then, the realm art for the Broken Realms where the faces live.
I hope you all have an amazing week, and I cannot wait to send this book to you all :D
