I'm going to monthly updates and I got a couple of pings so we are:
Trade paperbacks and Hardcovers have been ordered and are being shipped out. I have a stack of about 30 books that still need sketches, which I bang out a couple at least per night. Hopefully some of you are getting the packages by now.
You will notice on some of the hardcovers, that they are MATTE covers. That's on purpose, but I will warn you: They collect human oils from your fingers!! Big time. It's not horrible, but you will see your prints. ALSO, I noticed on some of them, there was like a glossy mark on a couple, this was done by the printers and that's the price of doing business with them I guess. Not thrilled out it, but I sitll think they look pretty awesome.
The Omnibus is at the Printers! We should be getting some in March, by the end of that month I'll have all of them, then those get shipped out.
I still need to order the clamshells, I think like 6 of them. And a couple of shirts.
Then I think that's it. Going to miss this when it's all over really. It's been a dream. Hope I can make a career out of it.
Thank you all. Tell me how you liked the books and story!

Just a quick note, I found a couple of errors in my Omnibus digital version I sent out to some of you backers. It seems that InDesign was not exporting some of the text boxes on the narration with slanted boxes. So I spend a day going through it and fixing it all. I also up-ress'ed the file, so the quality is evern better.
So if you got the Omnibus either digital or physical, be on the lookout for that email!
Have a great day!

Omnibus is done!
Dat's right, ya her' it first here! I literally just finished the Omnibus, made the digital file, emailed you backers with the file!!
Holy cow, it's done folks.
I spoke to the Printers for the Omnibus this afternoon, hope to get this on their plate by next week and a month or so and they will be in my hands! BUT, I also have 14 boxes of books around me. I have sketched about 30 books and still have a bunch to do, but I think we will start shipping these guys out soon, no need to wait any more, it's BEEN TOO LONG! Get Her' DONE! okay, yeah I'm a little punchy, sorry. (maybe it's the Dead Kennedys that I'm listening to)
So that's what's going on. Sketching and sending out books soon. Omnibus is done, all the creative parts of this projects is over. (which is kind athet fun part, right? hehe)
I love you guys, seriously, I can't tell you how much this meant to me to get this done. It's taken like 5 years total, 4 kickstarters, many, many hours but I got to do something that I wanted to do as a kid and I think it looks pretty cool. I could NOT have done it without you. Okay, now I'm getting emotional. *breathes* ice cold. okay.
Make a great day!
Oh and if this isn't enough for you, I have STEAMBEAR children's book now on Kickstarter. (yeah I'm a glutton) Shiping Next Month!

It's 2018 and I am ready to rock and roll! I have my personal goals and career and family goals ready and I'm ready to do this!.
2017 was good, this will be even better. Positive attitude. Mind over matter.
So here's the update for me:
- I got 11 boxes full of the deluxe hardcovers. Next up is SKETCHIN'! I have a lot of sketches to do in the books. Tradepaperbacks should be here by the end of the week.
- Ordered shipping supplies. Should be here by Thursday.
- Omnibus editing. I WILL BE DONE. by the end of the week. Then off to the printers.
- Omnibus digital - should be sent out to you backers next week. *fingers crossed*
Now that most of the creative part of Pariah, Missouri is in the can, this last weekend, I decided to dust off my unfinished children's book, SteamBear and finish it. It is done! I started a simple Kickstarter for it. It's for ages 3-6 and parents who are into comics, steampunk and the like. What's nice is that it's done and I'm shipping this out in February. So I'll be shipping both Pariah and SteamBear at the same time. 2018, watch out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/andresjsalazar/steambear

Merry Christmas! I hope each of you have a great holiday with your family and friends.
Here's thet breakdown. All books have been ordered, except the Omnibus
They should be here by Jan 15th, then I start shipping!
I am sending out DIGITAL copies of Book 3, today! so be on the look out for that. Digital Omnibus are NOT ready. I'd like to do one more round of editing prior to finalizing the Omnibus.
I'm calling out again for Editors. If you already edited book 3, great, you have 1/3 already done. Anyone who wants to go for it, please message me. I'll give you a digital copy of the Omnibus for you tot go through, look for spelling, grammar, story-wise, logic, all that kind of stuff. Artwork can't be fixed too much, so we are just looking for little things. Please let me know. I want to have this completely done by the beginning of the year and send it out to the printers.
Thank you all!
