Hello White Ashians,

Thank you all so much for being patient and hanging with us.  We wanted to give you a quick update as to our progress and schedule going forward and the news is good.  Conor should be finished by early next week and Fin won't need much more time after that to complete prettying-up the last few pages of the book. From there, we'll be laying it out in PDF format and then sending it off overseas to the printer. As of now, we can confidently say we'll have PDF's to you, our amazing backers, by the end of September.

To that end, if you haven't filled out your survey, PLEASE DO SO NOW.  There are still a couple of you who haven't.  If we don't have your names, as you'd like them listed in the book, by Monday, September 18th, we can't guarantee they will be included.

Going forward, we'll keep you up to date as we get information from our printers. As soon as they give us a tangible schedule, we'll share it with you. But most likely, we're going to continue to be about a month behind. 

We really appreciate all the support and patience you've shown as we've put the book together. And now we're so incredibly excited to be able to share the final product with you. We here at Team Ash are beyond thrilled with how it's turned out and are confident, that with your help, we've created something truly special.

 Thanks again,

Your support has meant the world to us.  All the very best,

Charlie and the rest of Team Ash

Hello White Ashians,

We just wanted to check in with you and give you an update on the book. As the title of the post implies, we're almost finished.  80% of the book is done and waiting to be sent off to the printer.  Conor is working away on the last couple of pages.  If you want to see your book finished in real time, you can head over to Conor's Twitch feed. He works late into the night most evenings and is always up for company.  And as amazing as the pages look after Fin has colored them, there's also something magical seeing the pages come to life in their rougher, penciled form.

Conor sketched out this beauty last night and we couldn't wait to share it with all of you.

 

Thanks again, 

Charlie and the rest of Team Ash

We're getting there...

Hello White Ashians,

Hope your summer is going as well as ours here in White Ash.  We had a wonderful time at Comic-Con, meeting backers, publishers and fellow Kickstarter creators.  And we couldn't have been happier about the response they had for the preview pages we brought down to show off in San Diego.

 

Yep, we getting close now, folks.  Conor and Fin are on the back half of the book.  We're still hoping to hit our target delivery by the end of the month, but there's a chance we'll slip into early September for the PDF.  Adding the extra pages to the comic and reworking the cover and the colors a bit, slowed us down, but I think the results are well worth an extra week or two.

But rest assured, we're working hard to get back on track. Working hard creating gorgeous pages like this...

 

If you want to know exactly where we're at and see your book finished in real time, you can head over to Conor's Twitch feed. He works late into the night most evenings and is always up for company. 

Until then, if you haven't filled out your Backer Kit survey, please do. We'll need to know how you want your name listed in the PDF of the book. If for whatever reason you never got one, shoot us an email and we'll resend you the survey.

Thanks again. We couldn't have done any of this without you.

Hello White Ashians,

Hope the summer is treating you all well.  We here in White Ash are gearing up to make the trek from coal country to sunny San Diego for Comic-Con next week.  If you happen to see one of us walking the floor, rocking a bit of White Ash merch, please feel free to introduce yourself.  

 

As for the comic... well it's just looking fabulous.  Conor and Fin continue to crank out amazing page after amazing page.  Just check out this delightful bit of banter as Aleck drops by uninvited to pay a visit to White Ash's most prominent mine owner, Thane Alden.

 More to come soon...

Until then, we'd again like to remind you that if you haven't filled out your Backer Kit surveys, please do. (There are a couple of you... you know who you are.)  And if for whatever reason you never got one, shoot us an email and we'll resend you the survey.

Also, if you'd like to watch the comic being drawn live, head on over to Conor's Twitch page. If you follow him, Twitch will send you an email whenever Conor's live casting his work.

And finally, if you haven't liked the Facebook page yet, please do.  From time to time we put exclusive teases up there.  And we don't want you, our most important backers, to miss out on anything.

Thanks again. We couldn't have done any of this without you.

Hello White Ashians,

Hope you all have some amazing plans for the upcoming weekend.  Ours has gotten off to a fantastic start as lookie what just showed up from the White Ash Mining Company.

 

Yep, it's your coal.  Those of you who pledged at the Coal From The Mine level can sleep well tonight knowing that White Ash's precious dirt candy has reached our distribution center. 

Much more to come soon, but that's all for today. 

Thanks again. We couldn't have done any of this without you.
