Golden Goblin Spotlight
Heroes of Red Hook-
Formal layout for this project is complete!
Ian MacLean is working on our interior art, and while progress is good, it will take time to draw eighteen quality interior illustrations. As the illustrations are completed they'll be dropped into the first page of each story, depicting a scene from early in that story's narrative (so there won't be any spoilers)
Another item that might be of interest, we decided quite last minute to add a little extra content to the book. At the end of each story is now listed a From The Author note, where each author talks a little bit about the story they've written (their inspiration, the history behind it, their process, etc...). I'd like to thank the authors for agreeing to share their thoughts with us, and for getting these back to us as quickly as they did. We hope you'll enjoy this addition to the manuscript.
Tales of the Caribbean
First off, interior art is now 100% complete and in house.
LAYOUT HAS BEGUN!
Lisa Padol is making great progress on setting these scenarios up for layout and emailing them to Mark Shireman. Mark has just completed laying out a fiction project for us as well, so momentum is high. Currently two of the seven scenarios are in layout, with a third being sent to him later today.
What makes this truly amazing is that this is the VERY FIRST TIME this project is ahead of schedule.
