YOU GUYS! YOU GUYS! We have the first test copy of the Second Edition of Faerie Blood, and OMG, it looks beautiful. Dara and I are slightly dubious about the loss of some of the background color–but other than that, the layout is amazing, Kendis pops right off the cover, and there’s a bar code and ISBN and retail price and everything and HOLY CRAP it looks like a real book.
Paul says he really likes the cover even if we’ve lost quite a bit of the background golden hue. Dara’s going to have a conversation with our guy at Third Place about this, and see whether it’s fixable. If it’s not, though, honestly, I will be very happy with this as the shipping version. Stand by for further updates! Hopefully we’ll have a full print run ready to begin shipping out to Kickstarter backers this weekend!

It appears that the boys of Le Vent du Nord are beefing up their application for the position of My New Favorite Band, because this morning, this happened on Facebook!
How thoughtful is that? And I mean, it ain’t like I wasn’t going to go already anyway, but if I hadn’t already known about the show they’re going to do in Oregon in November, this would TOTALLY have convinced me to!
Because oh my yes this is happening. November 10th. A Saturday, ever so delightfully enough. There will be a very likely plan of scamper down from Seattle on Saturday morning, hit the show in the evening, and hit Powell’s on Sunday afternoon before heading home again! (Because you cannot be a Pacific Northwest geek, go anywhere near Portland, and NOT go to Powell’s.) Interested parties in the Portland area are highly, HIGHLY encouraged to attend this show if possible. Do it for the podorythmie! Do it for the hurdy-gurdy! And do it for the chance to join me in showing Nicolas, Réjean, Simon, and particularly Olivier how we do La Danse Verticale in Cascadia!
Still need convincing? Three words: Tromper le Temps! You don’t even have to learn French, people, they’ve given us translations of the lyrics. Because they’re just thoughtful boys like that.
