The opening scene of Book 2 is available in 1920×1080 resolution at my Gumroad site. Pay what you want, including $0!
As I mentioned to the Kickstarter backers, the first strip of Book 2 goes up October 14, this coming Monday. Actually it technically goes up a few hours before midnight. See you here.
Hey everyone, just a heads up — many of my sites will be in flux over the next couple days as I’m changing hosts. Just a little warning! Major affected sites:
Hello everyone! Thanks for allowing me the relative radio silence as I work on the Kickstarter. I’m not silent everywhere though — you can read updates on the Kickstarter page when they come in. There’s a lot of updates up now! And Book 2 will begin sometime in October.
I wanted to share these two pieces of analysis at Sequart.org by author Matthew Kirshenblatt — despite not having interviewed me, this guy is looking right into my skull.
- The Stitching Together of a Mythos: Kris Straub’s Broodhollow, Part 1
- The Stitching Together of a Mythos: Kris Straub’s Broodhollow, Part 2
- The Stitching Together of a Mythos: Kris Straub’s Broodhollow, Part 3
Needless to say they are full of spoilers, if for some reason you haven’t finished Book 1 yet.
I don’t know what to say other than thank you. As I’ve said other places, I fully expected to make the goal, but I didn’t think it’d be exceeded by this much.
Look at how much has happened — at the beginning of the Kickstarter, if you pledged $33, you got the softcover version of the book and 3 PDFs. Thanks to reaching so many stretch goals, the basic $33 softcover-only tier now looks like this:
- Softcover edition of Broodhollow: Curious Little Thing
- Softcover now has spot gloss and embossing, and is 1″ larger
- PDF edition of the book
- PDF of the sketchbook
- PDF of all the rough pencils for each page
- Pack of hi-res wallpapers
- A 12×12″ Kickstarter-exclusive print
- A new 6-page story in the book
- A Kickstarter-exclusive town pride pin
In addition, everyone will learn a recipe for switchwater AND get an ongoing video series on creepypasta from me, where I talk about horror and fiction.
As we approach the final days I’ll be adding secret stretch goals as we lurch towards the final goal: a traditionally-produced 5-song EP download for all backers. If you’re interested in the above, or have been on the fence about it, I’d say pledge now! It’s about as ripe as it’ll get! At least two of those things will never appear in the store.
Also thank you for bearing with me here in the hiatus! When I finish the additional story I’ll post it. Once I’m feeling good about the state of fulfillment on the Kickstarter orders, we’ll start Book 2 here on the site (no later than October).
