Baroque Space Opera is now available in print!

Baroque Space Opera is now available in print over at DriveThroughRPG!

The book is available in hardcover and softcover versions. If you have purchased the PDF prior to the print being available, you will receive a code with a discount equivalent to purchasing the PDF and print via email. I just need to figure out how to manage that with the DRTRPG tools provided first.

Happy New Year!

Here are some pictures of the (hefty) physical books:

Baroque Space Opera Print Proofs have arrived!

Today the print proofs for the hardcover and softcover versions of Baroque Space Opera have arrived. They look incredible. I am finally holding my own physical book! The colours all came out amazing in print.

Unfortunately, I immediately noticed I need to make some quick tweaks. A few of the full-page sized images got trimmed with a bit of white at the top of the page in the hardcover (the softcover looks good so far). I did not cover the full bleed area for when a page is trimmed (damn newbie mistake I won't make again). There is also a typo I want to fix that was reported after the proofs went to print. I'm hoping this will be approved by next week, but it may take long because of the holidays. Still, I'd rather not rush and provide the best possible looking book I can. I will also make the background grid patterns on the cover a bit more prominent, they are a bit dark for what I wanted them to look like.

Here's some pictures of the books.
