What happens next?
First, a bit of context. Over the past few weeks I’ve worked full time, put in an additional 100-125 hours of packing and cleaning to prep for a move to Seattle, started a new job, and run this preorder. Consequently, I’m woefully behind on things like updating the Engine Publishing website, reopening the online store, and the like. Woefully, woefully behind.
What next, you ask?
- I’ll be setting the Engine Publishing store up again, with automatic download fulfillment and without shipping to the EU
- That will include making Focal Point generally available, both in print and digital (and in at least one discounted bundle)
- I’ll also upload Focal Point to DriveThruRPG and elsewhere
My book asploded!
If I messed something up with your preorder, please let me know: martin enginepublishing com. I apologize, and I’ll make it right.
I triple-check everything as I assemble packages, but mistakes still sneak through occasionally.
Thanks again to everyone who preordered Focal Point!
