  4. Hi I’m working with Keely on another great collaborative project, MURDER IN THE MAIL. I’ll also be running a Kickstarter, and one of the prizes will be a FULL book pack of all the contributors. If there is a lot of demand, I’ll need lots of copies of that limited edition art companion piece. Could you please email me and let me know what cap I should put on supplies?
