Hey all! Ellie here. Wanted to update everyone on what's happening in the world of NecroSeam (and some other side projects I've been working on unrelated to NecroSeam)
- Multiverse 2020 (Virtual Convention) October 16th-18th
So much is happening with Multiverse online right now. Pre-recorded panels are being scheduled, live streams are being arranged, I've updated the NecroSeam Store and fixed up the website a LOT. This forum is a prime example! I know there's only a handful of you on here right now, and I couldn't be more thankful for every one of you. Let's make this a fun place for everyone!
- Children's Illustration Book Status
We received the author copy of the Ballad of the Ice Fairy, and most of it was pretty snazzy! There were a few things we decided to tweak so we've made the changes and are now waiting for the next sample to come in for inspection. I have no idea WHEN it will arrive since the first sample took over a month to come in (and our mailing system here in the states is absolute insanity right now), but if it comes back in great shape, we'll finally be able to hit that PUBLISH button!!!
I've been working SO LONG on this children's book in the background, it's weird (and cool!) to think it's almost ready!
- Princess of Grim (NecroSeam Prequel) Book status
The upcoming prequel featuring Willow and the twins' childhoods is all ready to go for release! Just need to wait for the official release date in October (October 16th for ebook, Paperback release TBD). In the meantime, if you haven't preordered your copy yet and want a signed, personalized book, you can order it at the store! After it's released, the pre-ordered books will be shipped to me, signed by me, and sent off straight to you ASAP. Obviously, given the chaotic state of the USPS, I really can't promise any SOLID arrival or shipping times, so I apologize for that upfront. But rest assured, you all WILL get your copies!
Oh, I also had a ton of fun designing some products and merchandise in the NecroSeam store, so if desired, there are Princess of Grim mugs for sale right now! The mugs will be shipped to you much sooner, since we go through a third party distributer here in the U.S. and I don't need to sign those :p.
-Tons of New Merchandise Now Available in the Store!
Speaking of merchandise, I've been designing several items for anyone interested! Come check out what we have to offer at the NecroSeam store! I maaaaaaaay have ordered myself a few items because... well... let's be honest, those Reaper items are FABULOUS!!!!!! I got myself a whole Reaper set of the dress, the leggings, the scarf, the tote, AND the mask!
(Yes, we have masks now)
We have these same sets for ALL the NecroSeam Knights, so now you're free to represent YOUR kingdom!
-Middle Grade NecroSeam Series Status Update
Not much of an update since I haven't had much time to actually sit down and write (what with reorganizing my business for COVID, the toddler turning 2 (today!), House shopping, finishing the Children's Illustration, and finishing Princess of Grim) BUT I have finally solidified the story as a whole.
For those I haven't told, yes, my next written project is a middle-grade series set in the NecroSeam universe with new characters set in the year 989 A.B. on Nirus. I don't want to say too much about it because I prefer showing rather than telling, so I'll get back to y'all on this when I finally get to sit down for a minute and write it. Stay tuned!
-Oracle Cards Status Update
Yep, you read that right. I'm making an oracle card deck based on the NecroSeam Chronicles Lore. This is really a personal project of mine. The card designs are all finished, so now I need to create the informational booklet that details the cards and their various meanings... I have no idea how long this will take, I'll be honest. But I'll keep chipping at the pages a much as I'm able. Soon enough, they'll be available for purchase in the NecroSeam store, too!
That's all the updates for now! Have a great First Day of Fall, everyone!!
