Latest Updates from Our Project:

Chapter Two is on fire
about 15 hours ago – Sat, Feb 24, 2018 at 12:28:39 AM

Thank you so much for all your support of Chapter Two.  For those of you who haven't had a chance to check out our latest Kickstarter, it's off to an amazing start.  We funded in three days, have already unlocked two stretch goals, and one hidden reward. 


We'll probably crack 10K this weekend and most likely reveal another hidden reward (but shhhh, don't tell anyone).  So if you haven't taken a trip back to White Ash yet, there's still a chance to join us.  And a chance to invite your friends to join you in our dangerous little mining town.


if you live in the United States and you haven't received White Ash Chapter One yet (and you were supposed to) shoot us an email ASAP.  If you live outside the United States, all the books have now been shipped.  If you don't have them by March 9th, shoot us an email and we'll see if we can figure out what happened.

All the very best,

Charlie, Conor and Fin

White Ashians,

We were overwhelmed to see so many of you turn out in force for the first day of our kickstarter for Chapter Two. We can't tell you what it means to know you're enjoying what we're making and want to see more.  So really, thank you.

And if you're still thinking about checking out Chapter Two, but haven't had a chance, today's the day.  Our early bird specials are going quickly and will be gone tomorrow.  

So if you want to get one of these amazing Valentine's Day Secret Romance inspired Valentine's day covers for less, now's the time.


Thank you again for your support.  We couldn't do any of this without you.

Charlie, Conor and Fin

CHAPTER TWO Kickstarter is LIVE
12 days ago – Mon, Feb 12, 2018 at 05:06:15 PM


Check it out now and don't miss out on all our early-bird rewards.

We can't wait wait to share Chapter Two with you,

Charlie, Conor and Fin (AKA Team Ash)

Four days till we're back
16 days ago – Fri, Feb 09, 2018 at 12:47:49 AM

Hello Ashians,

By now most of you should have received your books.  The last batch of domestic shipments (those that had been waiting for signature copies) are heading to the post office tomorrow.  We do still have a couple of international books we're packing up.  Filling out the customs forms takes time and we want to make sure they're packed safely so they can survive the trip out of the country.  But those should be shipped out early next week.

Speaking of next week, we hope all of you will join us for our Chapter Two launch on Monday.  We're going to be having a limited number of day one deals on the regular and variant covers of the book as well as as catch-up rewards with package deals on copies of Chapter One and Chapter Two. We'd love it if all of the specials went to our returning backers. So come early and join the fun... maybe even have a dink on us.

And by that we mean have a drink on one of these coasters Conor swiped from Sif's diner.

They're just one of the many extra rewards you'll be getting this time around when you back White Ash: Chapter Two.

So thank you in advance.  Without our amazing Kickstarter supporters none of this would have happened.

All the very best,

Charlie, Conor and Fin

Fulfillment Begins
28 days ago – Sat, Jan 27, 2018 at 11:09:44 PM

Hello White Ashians,

It has begun.  The first batch of books went out on Friday.  

We'll be packing through the weekend and mailing out another big batch on Monday.  If you live in the United States, most of you should have your books by Friday at the latest. There will be a slight delay with books that needed to be signed, as they first have to make their way to NJ for Conor to add his John Hancock, but it shouldn't be much longer.

If you live overseas... honestly, we have no idea.  Your packages will be mailed out next week.  After that, it's up to customs and our various postal carriers to get you your rewards.  But hopefully they should be reaching you in the next two to three weeks.

This process really been an amazing and humbling experience.  Thank you again for making White Ash: Chapter One possible. There's no way it would have happened without your backing. We really hope you've enjoyed reading the book as much as we loved creating it.  If so, we have a little something to share with you today...

The Kickstarter for Chapter Two launches on February 12th.  For the first two days, we're going to have a limited number of reduced-rate, early-bird pledge tiers for our returning backers.  We'd love it if you'd RSVP so we can get a sense of how many we need to offer. Regardless, please come early as we'd hate for you to miss out.

We'll have some more sneak peaks from the KS and Chapter Two shortly.  But for now, enjoy your rewards.  You're the best group of backers we could have hoped for.

Appreciatively yours,

Charlie, Conor and Fin (AKA Team Ash)
