    Misprints

    So one of the people who had bought a copy of Without a Hive had a printing issue where some of the words were randomly made italic. It was a problem that had cropped up before, but I had thought fixed. Apparently, this wasn't the case. It seems that the books weren't printing consistently, despite using the same PDF. Most seem to have printed just fine, but some (I'm only aware of one, though

    Print project: Fragments is up!

    The final test printing arrived today, and it came back perfect. No more lingering font formatting issues. As of now, the whole trilogy is online! Thanks again for your patience, and to everyone who encouraged me to see this through.

Print project: get some books edition. · 9:54pm August 2nd


(Link)

Sooooo... in the lead-up to Bronycon and the Golden Oaks Bookstore, there was a survey to estimate how many books each author should stock. After getting the results, I had estimated ten copies of Without a Hive would be a good amount, which should cover those who were already interested with a few extra in case it caught someone's eye. I was eventually encouraged to send more, so I upped that to fifteen, hoping that they'd still all move, because it'd be kinda awkward to deal with any extras.

From what I'm hearing, every single copy sold out in something like six hours. :twilightoops:

I have severely underestimated you all, and I'm sorry.

I know I said I'd open up the sale of the books after the con, but seeing as it's already sold out, I'm going to bump that up a few days for everyone who wasn't able to get their copy! Fortunately, Lulu makes that super easy, so here you go:

Without a Hive: http://www.lulu.com/shop/phoenix/without-a-hive/hardcover/product-24240458.html

A New Way: http://www.lulu.com/shop/phoenix/a-new-way/hardcover/product-24121958.html

Fragments: I'm afraid this one isn't up just yet. There was a pretty severe formatting issue with the previous test print, so I'm waiting for the new test print to arrive so I'll know if it's fixed. It should be just fine, but I want to make sure. I should be getting it in about a week to a week and a half, and if it's good, I'll be opening this one up for sale, too! All issues resolved, we are go for launch! http://www.lulu.com/shop/phoenix/fragments/hardcover/product-24196037.html


Edit: just as a clarification, these are all being sold at print costs, no markup or anything. I'm not trying to make any money off it. I got enough of a thrill out of having a physical copy of the books in my hands. :twilightsmile:

YESyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes thanks for this!

Just imagine black friday levels. That's what is to be expected. I'll be purchasing as soon as fragments is up as well. Thanks!!:pinkiehappy:

Those covers look amazing! I especially like Without a Hive's. Will you be replacing Fimfic's covers with them?

I kind of want to keep the covers that they've had for so long, but I really should put a link to the new artwork for the book covers. They're just too good to not show off :twilightsmile:

Congratulations!

:pinkiegasp:No FOE: The Chrysalis?!:raritycry:

Congrats on the other three BTW.

No Fallout: Equestria - The Chrysalis... yet. It's got some more work to do first. :twilightsmile:

I mean, if you're not at Bronycon, I can understand the surprise. But Bronycon itself seems to have underestimated the potential turnout after advertising so hard about it being the last. One. Ever.

I was initially surprised at the lines. Now I'm surprised the vendors themselves haven't been purchased and carted off.

I don't like saying I told you so, but I told you so Phoenix.

Said from the 1am scootertrix finale panel at bronycon with my copy of Without a Hive in my bag next to me. ^_^

I think I might deserve it this time. I mean, six hours! Holy crap. :twilightsheepish:

Bug bug gimmie dat hug

Ooo:rainbowkiss: can't wait! I will definitely be one of the first then!

I was there on day one with the early sponsor line and the bookstore was the first place I headed after finding my Littlepip plushie and I didn't see A New Way on the shelves. I bought Without a Hive though so at least I grabbed that. Thanks for the links. I'll definitely go grab A New Way.

5099552
A New Way wasn't ready by the deadline for the bookstore, so it didn't make it to the con.
Don't worry, you didn't miss out on it.
:derpytongue2:

I'm just waiting for all three to be up and then I'm IN. Just want to combine shipping and all.

Thank you!
I was at the bookstore on Thursday, but they already sold out by the time I arrived. Without a Hive and A New Way are probably my favorite pony stories, so I'm glad to see they're still available here. :twilightsmile:
