On Selling Books

The most difficult part of the Golden Sky Stories Kickstarter, the part where we get physical product out to backers, is just about over apart from fixing whatever remaining cases there were of things going wrong. We’re in the process of getting things set up to launch into full retail sales, starting with Indie Press Revolution and the Level 99 Games web store. However there were also 13 game stores that took us up on the “General Store” backer level for GSS, which means there are several game stores around the U.S. (plus one in Germany!) that have GSS available for purchase. If you missed out on the Kickstarter and still want a print copy of GSS, it may be closer than you realized:

Meanwhile With Maid RPG…
Things may change in the future, but for the moment we’ve been going ahead with plans to have Maid RPG be a long tail game with more of an emphasis on Print on Demand, and it is now available in print from DriveThruRPG and Amazon. Check the Maid RPG page for links. You’ll note that we’ve updated the cover design, but the interior is the same as before. I had originally asked Clay to add a Star Line Publishing logo and change the price and such, and he kind of went to town with a major redesign. The results are pretty great, but if you already have the book then you already have all of the content.
