Hey everyone, the Dagon Edition of the Patron's Guide, Angels, Daemons and Beings Between, Extended, Otherworldly Edition, has arrived in my clutches. And whilst I was excited at the prospect at getting this out to the backers, I'm actually underwhelmed at the quality of the soft cover printing. Don't get me wrong, it looks fine and the contents are presentable but I'm actually going to reformat the book and publish it as a hardcover.
For backers, this means you can either get a copy of this softcover version or wait a little longer to get the hardback version. I will make this softback available to buy but for the people who supported this project from so long ago, I think you will appreciate the hardback version better, if you're willing to wait. This may increase your cost slightly but I'm of the opinion it will be worth it.
What it means for me is the long process of reformatting the book into 8' x 11' size, which is the largest hardback size available from most printers. If you choose to go with the softcover, it's A4 sized, which is a beastly book, a good 3/4 of an inch taller than the hardback will be - but due to the reformatting, the hardback will have more pages due to the shorter pages. It is a painful process and will take me a couple of weeks.
I will be sending an email update to all the people who have expressed interest as backers.
For everyone else, the standard soft cover Hecate version's proof will be arriving on Friday this week, so I will take a good look at that and see how I like that but it will be easy enough for me to make that into a hardcover book too, so I may make that an option too.
In any case, let me know how you feel about this and I'll try my best to give everybody what they want. Cheers, David.
