Hey I wanted to let you guys know that I received my proof copy of the softcover edition last week and will be getting the hardcover next week. When I get both I’ll post a video with them so you can get a look. The full batch of books should be arriving end of February so I’ll start shipping in early March. More soon!

Pre-orders and add-ons end Nov 10th
7 months ago – Sun, Nov 04, 2018 at 01:30:49 AM

The book has been sent off to printers. 244 pages, 12 chapters. Full color. The special hardcover edition will have an imitation leather slipcase and a special fold out page. It’s gonna be nice.

If you haven’t, please visit backer kit and fill out your final survey. You can also throw on some additional add-ons (some that were not available on the Kickstarter campaign). Also, please share this with friends. The money I make from these pre-orders will help me with marketing once the book comes out.


When will that be? Right now it looks like I’ll get a hard copy proof around Christmas time and the book itself will be delivered at the end of January which means I’ll be mailing them out to you in February.

Question: would you prefer to get the digital version sooner? Or would you like to get it at the same time as the print edition? I had said I would release the digital edition early but now I’m thinking it might be better to release them all at the same time. Let me know what you guys think.

Bear Backer list UPDATED

Hey there.

So I forgot to look on the Backerkit surveys to see what names you all wanted listed. I had missed that. So I made all those changes. I also alphabetized the list to make it easier to find your name (by first name, sorry).  Please remember, whatever name you submitted on your BackerKit survey is the name that will be on this list.

I also found a bunch of people who had not initially entered names but then had requested a name on Backerkit, so the list got longer.

See the updated image HERE.

Please let me know if there is an issue with your name. Thanks!


Check your name on the list of the slain!
8 months ago – Tue, Oct 02, 2018 at 07:38:31 PM

If you were listed among the slain, you should be on this list. Please look at it and make sure I got it right. Let me know if you need any edits. Just put them in the comments on this post please so I don't have edit requests in my email and Facebook and phone and... just here for simplicity's sake.

Also if you DON'T want to be in there, let me know. Please respond by the 12th of October (10 days). I plan on getting this book printed at the end of this month!

If Kickstarter posts this image shrunken down, open it HERE at full res.

Five chapters down!
9 months ago – Wed, Aug 15, 2018 at 02:23:45 AM

Friends and bear foes, a little update. I just turned in chapter five to me punch-up experts. A couple friends who write comedy to give each chapter a final “joke sweep” before I send it to be edited. Most of the chapters are close to finished but I am going through one at a time now and tying up loose ends. I’m excited to put this book in your hands. Attached is something I added to the book today. -Ethan
