The Wolfenoot Story has gone to print!
We have been working really hard to get the book completed, and it has now gone to print. This means I can’t do anything more about it until the boxes of books arrive on my doorstep.
Holding the proof
Getting to hold the completed proof of this book in my hands was just overwhelming. Watching my son page proudly through the book he wrote, which the Wolfenati made viable – well, that is just an indescribable feeling.
I posted recently on social media about my emotional response to this. It will be five months tomorrow since I posted the Facebook post and then the Tweet that exploded and turned this into something so much bigger than just another cute thing my kid said. In less than five months, we have gone from “holy crap, what is happening” to me holding a book in my hands.
It is astonishing and magical. I don’t even know how to thank you all for your love and support or talk about how life-changing, humbling, exhilirating, terrifying and miraculous this ride has been for us.
Buy the book
There are three different options for the standard book, based on shipping, plus the deluxe version.
The standard version is a saddle-stapled full colour book.
The deluxe version is casebound, with some added bits and pieces, including a space for the kid to sign it. Every copy will be signed by him. It will be accompanied by a signed print from the artist, a letter from me, and a small piece of original (and unique) art by the Wolfenoot Kid. We will only ever print a maximum of 250 of these. Once they are gone, they are gone. I will be numbering them. 🙂
NOTE: Prices are in New Zealand dollars, so please convert to your local currency if you’re not a Kiwi.
Listen to the kid read the story
Over on Patreon, I have released a preview of the story. At the moment, this is the only place on the internet where you have access to the full text of the story. We recorded the Kid reading the book, and posted it up on Patreon for patrons only.
I wanted to find a way to thank the people who have been supporting me there for coming on board and helping me keep this thing rolling. This seemed like a good way to do it. If you’d like to hear it, come on over and join us, and become an official Wolfenoot Patron.
We will be releasing an electronic pdf version of the story on our website with a “Pay what you want” button. ($0 will be an option.) This will become available once all preorders are shipped.
I do want everyone to have a chance to enjoy the story, but I ask you to be patient as I get all the other bits and pieces completed first.
I don’t think I will ever be able to express my gratitude for this community and what this thing has become. Thank you so much for being a part of it. ❤
