Latest Updates from Our Project:

Digital Art is on its way
7 days ago – Tue, Sep 11, 2018 at 11:25:09 PM

Hello White Ashians,

Any minute now, you should be receiving an email from Backerkit with links to a bunch of digital White Ash artwork that you can download and enjoy.  For our Digital-Only backers, these are your copies of what the Physical Reward backers will be getting.  For our Physical Backers, consider these a little preview of what's to come.  

As always, if (after a couple of hours) you don't see that email from Backerkit, check your junk mail.  And if it's not in your junk mail, feel free to reach out to us on Kickstarter. Well get you sorted.

And if you do like what you see, and find yourself Jonesing for a bit more of Conor's amazing artwork, we can also help you out there too.  Because Conor's just lent his talents to another amazing project that's currently on Kickstarter, doing an exclusive variant cover for GANGSTER ASS BARISTA

Charlie here. If you've been part of our previous campaigns, you'll know I'm a huge fan of Pat Shand (AKA the hardest working writer in comics). From Black Mask to Marvel, to... you name it, he's always busy. But his Destiny NY series on Kickstarter is probably my favorite. G.A. Barista is a spin-off of Destiny and it didn't take Conor's cover to convince me to be all in.  Comedy, Crime, Coffee and Pat, you're not going to find a better book on KS or probably in the shops.  

Anyway, we'll be back in a week or so with another update on our progress and your rewards.  Everything is still on schedule and fingers crossed, it will stay that way.

Thanks again, we couldn't do any of this without you.

All the very best from Team Ash,

Charlie, Conor and Fin 

Kickstarter rewards are starting to roll in from the printer
10 days ago – Sat, Sep 08, 2018 at 11:00:39 PM

Hello White Ashians,

Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend.  Just wanted to send out a quick update to keep you abreast of our progress.  At this point, all of our rewards (aside from the comics) have been printed and now we're just waiting for them to show up at White Ash HQ.  The first batch actually arrived this morning, so we'd thought we'd share a little glimpse of new set of White Ash trading cards.

As for the comics, they're still currently on track to reach us in early October (and we'll start shipping soon after that).  We'll keep you updated if anything changes. 

The SDCC Variants have begun shipping. Right now, we're just mailing the ones that are part of packages, like the Variant Trio tier, that have two shipping windows.  But as we're scheduled to have all our rewards in from the printer by the end of next week, the rest of the SDCC Variants should in the mail the following week. 

We'll be back early next week with more digital rewards and pictures of physical rewards. But for now, I do want to take a moment to point you to a project that's on kickstarter for 4 more days that still needs a little help to get across the finish line -- Wolverton, Thief of Impossible Objects

Charlie here. I loved the first book that Michael Stark and Terrell Garrett created.  It had/has that Thomas Crown Affair vibe, but set in the world of the occult. I'm thrilled they're back with their second installment and I hope you'll join me in checking out where the tale of the Gentleman Thief goes. 

Thanks again everyone.  We couldn't do any of this without you.

All the very best,

Charlie, Conor and Fin.

PDF's are out
17 days ago – Sun, Sep 02, 2018 at 01:29:39 AM

Hello White Ashians,

Look for a notification from Backerkit, we've just distributed the PDF for White Ash: Chapter Three!!!

If you pledged at a digital or print catch-up tier, you'll also be notified about PDFs for Chapter One and Two.  If you didn't receive a notification from Backerkit, you can also find the download links directly in your Backerkit account. 

If you have any problems accessing that, hit us up with a message and we'll sort you out.

Going forward...

Next week, we'll get out some more digital content for you -- the Funeral Invite, The SDCC variant cover print, the Lillian's Lament print, etc., basically all of the digital rewards from the campaign with the exception of the Deluxe PDF  (Because those take time to do right). Look for the Deluxe PDF for Chapter Three towards the end of September. 

As for the Print Copies, the SDCC Variants will begin going out in the next couple of weeks, just as soon as the assorted rewards return from the printers.  The rest of the books (with the Funeral cover) should begin shipping out in early October.  We haven't gotten a firm timeline from the printer yet.  But as soon as we do, we'll pass it on to you.

Thanks again for all your support and enthusiasm.  Conor, Fin and I couldn't ask for a better group of fans.

All the very holiday weekend best from White Ash,

Charlie, Conor and Fin.

TWO DAYS LEFT to get your name in Chapter Three
20 days ago – Thu, Aug 30, 2018 at 01:08:19 AM

Hello White Ashians,

Thank you all for being so prompt filling out the surveys.  As of tonight, 87% of backers have turned them in.  But we do want to give the last 13% (hope I'm doing the math right there) a chance to turn theirs in if they'd like their names listed in the backer's section of Chapter Three. 

Because on Saturday, we're going to send out the PDFs. Soooooo, if you want your name listed, and you haven't turned your survey in yet, you have till end of day on Friday to get that done.  If for whatever reason you haven't gotten a link from BackerKit yet, reach out to me (Charlie) on Kickstarter.  I'll send you a private message with a direct link. 

IF you can't figure out how to reach out to me on Kickstarter, post a comment below and we'll take care of you. 

Thank you again, we're so excited to get you the books.


Charlie and the rest of Team Ash (Conor and Fin)

Surveys are OUT
25 days ago – Sat, Aug 25, 2018 at 12:36:10 AM

Hello White Ashians,

Check your email, the BackerKit surveys are rolling out. If you don't see a survey in your inbox (or junk mailbox) by tomorrow morning, please get in touch with us and we'll send you a direct link so you can fill out your survey. 

And we'd like you to fill out your survey soon, because the sooner we have those filled out, the sooner we can get you your rewards. Right now the Chapter Three PDFs are ready to be sent, they're only waiting on adding in the backer name section.

To that end, we are instituting a ONE WEEK DEADLINE (till AUGUST 31st),to turn in surveys if you'd like  your name included in the backers' section of the PDF for Chapter Three.* 

After that, we will begin the distribution of the PDFs.  We want to make sure that no one has to wait any longer than the end of August to read the next chapter in the story of White Ash.

Thank you again for all your support.  We'll be back in touch soon with more updates on the production pipeline. 

All the very best,

Charlie, Conor and Fin (AKA Team Ash)

*Just to clarify, if you turn in your survey after August 31st, you will still get all of your other rewards.  The only reward that has the one week time limit on it, is the ability to have your name added to the PDF.  And we will send a reminder :)
