Paul..... we have to talk ;-)
Drop me a PM! :)

No, no, no. Talk about it here. No one's looking at this thread and we won't say anything. ;)

For those curious about postage outside the UK, P&P breaks down as follows:

 

Europe: c. 10.50 Euros ($13.75, US)

Rest of World: c. $23 (US)

 

So after the fundraiser/pre-order, typical delivery of a copy to the US (for example) would be c. $63 (thanks to new Royal Mail price increases). During the fundraiser however it's set at $45.

I think it's going to be a Leaf for me, but not till the end of the month.

Thank you!

 

The "Leaf from the Diaries" is an interesting one in that the handwritten material contained within relates to excised material from the original diaries ms. Each notebook should contain different text, so yours won't be the same as some one else's.

Ah, Paul beat me to this thread! It'll be part of the Saturday afternoon seminar, called 'Pathways to Publication', I believe... http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/seminars.php

We made our target in just under a week! A big thank you to everyone who's supported the fundraiser so far.

 

The pre-orders remain open until mid-June so there's still time. Meanwhile a little promo video as well.

Nice teaser. I'll probably have to wait for June to chip-in due to budgetary constraint but I won't miss it that's for sure.

We've added a few simple "Stretch Goals" to the fundraiser.

Stretch Goal 1: $7,500 - Violet's Diary & Postcard Set

Every backer gets an eBook copy of the original (and newly revised & updated) VIOLET'S DIARY written by Helen Maclean. The book that started it all. Print backers also get an EXPRESS DIARIES four postcard set along with their book(s).

Stretch Goal 2: $10,000 - The Ausperg Affair

Every backer also gets an eBook copy of "THE AUSPERG AFFAIR" - recovered from Moretti's memoirs - the thrilling prequel to THE EXPRESS DIARIES.

Overheard one October evening in London...

Professor Moretti: "Austrian-trained giant zombie carnivorous apes..?"

Col. Goodenough: "The latest horror of the Austrian war machine."

Awesome trailer made me want to purchase the book straight away...then I remembered I had already ordered a copy.:D

Really looking forward to reading this as Nick is a good writer (reading the Ancients at the moment) and the artwork looks stunning.

Thank you!

 

What would be really great too, is if people would help spread the word. :)

Have you tried sending an email about it to James Maliszewski of Grognardia fame?

He speaked pretty highly once of the Lovecraftian Tales from the Table, he has a huge readership and CoC is one of his favourite role-playing game.

I just re-discovered the Innsmouth House email in my inbox, and was more than a little surprised (as well as pleased) to note I had been quoted in it! I'll take this opportunity to reiterate, for anyone still on the fence about this - YOU NEED THIS BOOK.

 

Roll on the end of the month, so I can pledge my monies...

Wonderful, thank you Peter - and thank you everyone for your generosity! We're extremely grateful for the fantastic support so far!

 

Just back from Expo where my reading seemed to go well - despite the accent! I think Paul may have managed to get a video of it, so watch this space...
