Latest Updates from Our Project:

Girl Genius Volume 20 Exorcism Engines April update: mostly for backers outside the USA
2 days ago – Wed, Apr 17, 2024 at 06:05:31 PM

Current News:

Hello again! Phil and I will be in San Francisco at the Laughing Dragon Magic the Gathering event this weekend, April 19-21. Also, our current Kickstarter for Girl Genius Volume 21: An Entertainment in Londinium has funded! This means that I have some good news regarding the last of the International shipments from this campaign:

Shipping the last of the International rewards: 

All USA rewards for this campaign have shipped. Most of the International rewards have also shipped, but we had money problems this year and will ship the last batch as soon as the funds come in from the Volume 21 Kickstarter: sometime in late May. I am so sorry for the delay! I feel terrible about it. I'll of course post here again when those last items ship.

Combining Vol. 20 and Vol. 21 shipments:

Some backers have asked to combine their volumes 20 and 21 shipments. Yes, I'll figure out a way to do that, and we are grateful to those who are giving us another chance. I'll probably have to do some hands-on work to adjust the shipping cost on your current pledge manager form, so if you want to combine shipments, please use the Kickstarter form on our contact page at girlgeniusart.com to let me know.  

You can also use that form if your shipping address has changed. Please don't post about it here, comments on Kickstarter campaigns are notoriously easy to miss. Using the form to email us means we can keep better track of who I need to work with. If we don't hear from you by 5 May, 2024 I'll go ahead and ship your Exorcism Engines rewards as soon as I can.

Vol. 21 Kickstarter stretch goals, questions, and replies:

Also please keep in mind that not only are Phil and I working a convention this weekend, but our email helper Chris is busy with a family trip this week as well, so we might not get around to updating Kickstarter stretch goals or answering questions until sometime next week. 

Thank you for your patience with us, and, as always, thank you!

March 2024 Girl Genius Exorcism Engines Update
19 days ago – Sun, Mar 31, 2024 at 10:43:10 PM

Hello again! With very little time left in the month of March, here’s the March update! I’m mostly recovered from my surgery, but it’s been slow going. I’ve been working hard, and will be launching the new Kickstarter this week for Girl Genius Volume 21: An Entertainment in Londinium. You can sign up to be notified or just wait and I’ll link the campaign here when it goes live.

All of our USA and most of our International shipments have shipped, but there are still a few Internationals that I’m shipping as money comes in. I am so very sorry about that delay. If and when Entertainment in Londinium funds, the rest of those Internationals will go our asap. I will of course keep you informed here, and I’m sorry for the wait. I very much appreciate your understanding. This has been a very difficult time, but I am committed to getting everyone their books.

Thank you everyone!

February 2024 Girl Genius Update
about 2 months ago – Wed, Feb 28, 2024 at 04:51:35 PM

Well, I’ve spent most of this month having surprise surgery and then recovering. I’m still trying to work hard to get our financial situation more stable. I made it to MagicCon, the Magic the Gathering convention in Chicago that happened last weekend, and this coming weekend, we have the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle. Before I went to the emergency room, I had been working on the next Kickstarter, and so we’ve made it far enough that we now have this page set up where you can sign up to be notified when it goes live. The actual campaign should go live soon; I have a little more setup to take care of, and then we’re off.

As I said last month (see last month’s update for the whole thing), I have some International packages that I'm still shipping,  and as I bring in money, I'm shipping what I can. For our next campaign, I’m talking to a couple of International shipping companies for the next campaign, Spiral Galaxy for the UK and Aetherworks for Australia and NZ—they provide services where I would send a big shipment to them, and they would send out the individual shipments to backers in those areas. I’m still working out the costs for that, but I think it’s a very good idea. I’m very sorry for the delay, we’ve had a lot of setbacks this year, but we persist, and I am committed to getting everyone their rewards.

Ok, I’ll be posting another update soon when I have more to tell. For now, thank you all for reading Girl Genius, and for your patience with me. I’m feeling a lot better, and I’m back to work!

January 2024 Girl Genius update
3 months ago – Wed, Jan 31, 2024 at 05:13:58 PM

It's the end of January, and most of our rewards have been shipped out. I have some International packages that I'm still shipping, and I'm very sorry for the delay. As I announced in an earlier update, we had a bad cash flow problem this year and we are barely keeping the lights on here at the Studio. So I'm finding ways to bring in money, and as I get it, I'm shipping what I can. Phil and I will be doing several conventions in the upcoming months, trying to get our finances stable. 

I'm also working on the next Kickstarter: Girl Genius book 21 An Entertainment in Londinium. I hope to soon have a prelaunch page set up that will allow people to sign up to be notified when it goes live. If that campaign is successful, we will be able to send everything that we haven't already shipped. (If it isn't, we'll continue to ship as we can, but I'm sure it will be successful.) I hate to launch a new campaign while I still have outstanding shipments, but it looks like it might be the only way to move forward. I've delayed the next campaign for too long while I tried to get the money to get everything shipped, and that's caused a lot more problems.

I hope you'll all bear with me a little longer. I am as always committed to getting the rewards out to you all. Thank you, and Happy New Year!
