A lot is going on for Mythopoeia this month. We want to keep you updated so let's get to it!
Glow #2 Kickstarter
Skies of Fire - Trade Paperback
So far we've had quite a few discussions as to what the final trade will look like. We know that we want to do a hardcover, but have oscillated between a clothbound and just a standard cover. We like the quality of a clothbound, but feel that if we went in that direction an abstract or symbolic cover concept would be best. That said, from a commercial consideration, it's important that this trade's immediately convey the concept of Skies of Fire to a potential new reader.
Here's what we came up with:
The interior abstract by Josephe Vandel is also complete. Here's a close look:
Beyond that, Vandel is also designing a book plate. This is going to be an amazingly detailed piece to commemorate you, our longtime fans, for supporting us. Thank you for being part of the Mythopoeia family!
The Year Ahead
We also hear you loud and clear regarding a Patreon. We know that platform is an easier way for our most devoted fans to follow and support us. We've actually have had one somewhat built out for months, but like everything we do have erred on the side of "when it's ready" to launch.
When is that? Next week. We wanted to offer something commemorative for its launch (which we have), as well as create a full video (which is almost done editing).
