Risks and challenges
Cover artwork is complete. All that is left is interior artwork, which will be completed by June 2019, to allow for printing, bindery, production and shipping by July 2019! I am dedicated to completing the interior artwork on time, and see only a minimal amount of potential challenge in time, which already is a non-issue. This is my current only project, so all artistic time will be dedicated to completing this project.
Other than that, there is nothing outstanding in terms of issues or risk!
I personally have years of producing limited edition books and products, including for other successful Kickstarter campaigns. I recently wrapped my first campaign and shipped the following month after! I will have a hand in the physical printing and assembly of all products, so I will have a far more careful and closer eye on quality and production as it happens than others are privy to. Since I will be conducting diligent quality control, I can catch and fix issues when and if they arise during production, and completely avert delaying the shipping of this project.
Every single package I have ever shipped has arrived undamaged. I pack and secure each shipment for complete protection in shipping. This is another field I have years of experience in. In the event a package does arrive with damaged product, I will replace it for you. I have a stellar track record with delivery, and strive to maintain that record! I take great pride in delivering quality product, and it serves me no purpose to disappoint my customers or fans. NO BUBBLE MAILERS!!! All sturdy cardboard packages, and all contents are bagged and boarded for protection.
I also maintain excellent communication throughout the ordering process, and am not hard to find. I love what I do, and am always happy to chat about questions or concerns!
I DO NOT SHIP MEDIA MAIL! I ship First Class or Priority Mail only. You’ve already been patient through the Kickstarter process, I do not want to incur any further delays in you receiving your product.
Thank you all SO much for being a part of this! The Changeling is getting bigger and better for this installment! Let’s keep the momentum going!
This weekend, the Fiends will descend onto The Marriott in downtown Mesa, Arizona for Fiend Fest! They’re coming from all over the country to party and celebrate the beloved creation of Lady Death! Brian Pulido and the Coffin Comics crew are responsible for making this madness happen.
I’ll be in the company of some spectacular guests, many of whom I have the privilege to call friends!
I’ll have an exclusive cover available for ticketholders for the event!
This Lady Death: Nightmare Symphony Trio Edition features all three leading ladies of the Coffinverse! This one is super-limited to 66 copies!
I’ll also be offering 25% off EVERYTHING I am bringing with me this weekend! Gotta be there in person to jump in on these crazy sales! This also includes my newest book, The Changeling – Closeups, as well as the Pinups Valentine’s Editions!
Cara Nicole will also be hanging out with me this weekend, so you can get your Changeling Issue 1 Cosplay Edition signed by her and me! Gonna be a rocking time at Fiend Fest!
The last 30 days have been the strongest of my art career, without a doubt. AZEventureCon was certainly a shot in the arm for myself and the AyeDee Studio brand!
The Book signing on Saturday of the event was packed! I got to sign all of my Lady Death Necromancer covers, and the book was a legit sell out! Thank you SO much to everyone who picked up a copy! Also have to give a HUGE thanks to Brian & Francisca Pulido and the Coffin Comics crew for the rock star treatment, and giving me an incredible opportunity!
That rub definitely pushed things into high gear, as I have had a nonstop commission list since that show! It has been really awesome finding a crowd so receptive to The Changeling, as well as my artwork!
Books have been selling like crazy, and I decided to offer up something I never considered doing, but very grateful for doing so. I did an homage cover! The Changeling Issue 2 Homage Edition so far has been my biggest and fastest seller of any of my covers to date! I just shipped out a batch a few days ago, and still have about 5 copies left! So if you want to order one, no time like the present!
I’ve been humbled and honored at the growth this past month, and hope to keep the momentum going! I have some rad ideas in the works, and I will be starting on issue 3 soon.
Thank you all for your continued support! You rock!
