Project Update: Deliveries, Deadlines, Dates, and Locked Orders

Hi everyone,

Things have been cruising along over here at The Black Piper, and we have a few things to chat with you about regarding deliveries (which have started, yay!), deadlines, dates, and (sorry to break the alliteration...) locked orders. 

Locked Orders

First thing, as the time for the locking of orders has come, the next step will be charging cards for items added through the BackerKit pledge manager. We'll be doing that later this week and wanted to give you a heads up in case you need to make any adjustments with your cards or funds. If you foresee any issues, please let us know, and we'll be happy to work things out with you.

(Or if any of you have any last minute changes you want to sneak in, send us an email, and we'd be happy to oblige if it's before we charge - likely this weekend.)

As a reminder, shipping will not be charged at this time - that will happen as we get closer to the shipping date, and we'll make sure to communicate with you beforehand so that you are prepared!

Rewards Delivery

We have started delivering some rewards! We sent out both Reflections and the digital artwork a few weeks ago (though the downloads may not show up for everyone until charges are settled.) But if you backed those two rewards and you have a zero balance, then you should have gotten an email and/or be able to see them in your download section on BackerKit.

Tales of The Black Piper

A few stories have come in from a handful of authors (thank you to those who have already submitted!) Those who have not yet submitted, the deadline is June 30. If you can't find the link to the form for submission, please message us.

We have been preparing things on our end, and will be ready for editing in full force in July! This will be an especially exciting time - getting to work with each of you individually, and we hope you're looking forward to the experience!


This album has been moving forward steadily, though slowly. We've been having to rebuild old sessions manually in a painstaking/time consuming process, updating old instrumentation, rebuilding mixes, etc. And we're doing some solo recording to help polish a few of the tracks. We're making good progress, but it's likely that delivery on Refractions will be pushed back a little, but we'll keep you updated. 

That said, we may consider releasing a "part 1" in July and the remainder/"part 2" once it's ready.

Either way, we'll make sure you know as soon as we have things more fully nailed down.

Well, that's all for now! Looking forward to great stories from all the authors!

All the best,
Michael & The Team @ The Black Piper
