I don't think that you're on the hook legally. You don't have to honor a pledge. At least that's my understanding.

Re: Reggie Oliver

Regarding Kickstarter, if the Kickstarter hits the funding goal, the minute it closes they will bill your credit card. Don't pledge unless you are serious about it, if you change your mind it's not that simple to depledge once you get billed.

Oh I'm totally serious about my pledge as I have every Reggie book available so far. Just uneasy that I've been made to pledge $70 "Without Reward". I would rather have been given the option of pledging $70 "for Reggie Oliver hardback"

Re: Reggie Oliver

Hey everyone Dark Regions has Boke of the Divil up for preorder. Just put in my order. Looks like ebook and paperback up October 2017, signed hardcover March 2018. Should be right on the home page for them. Didn't know if anyone else knew about this.

Re: Reggie Oliver

Thanks for the heads up, Michael.
I did not pay the Kickstart because I thought the gimme palm was #### and Dark Regions stance ####ed up.
I hope others declined to endorse the pledge route, which I equated with a mix of hype and threat.
Anyway, I ordered now that Kickstart is not involved.
I bought almost all titles from D Regions now defunct line, Dark Renaissance, and I hope this has similar production values.

Re: Reggie Oliver

Any ideas about the precise release date for "The Boke..."? Some publishers have unfortunate habit to release horror novels/collection exactly on October 31, which is kinda silly because, even though it fits the holiday, you then end up reading the damn things after October and Halloween are over. I'm hoping that they aren't going for that, because I was looking forward to reading this during October.

Re: Reggie Oliver

Well, according their latest KS update, Dark Regions guys will be sending out ebook and paperback copies of "The Boke of the Divill" for KS backers during this week, and the book should be made available for the rest of us too.
