First of all, thank you so much to everyone who helped fund this project! Unfortunately, we did not meet our goal, and so Lestat has decided to put the box set on the shelf FOR NOW. Please do not think we have abandoned our efforts to getting this out to the public.
Our priority is now the new release, which we have gotten very deep into writing, and expect to see in fall/winter of 2014. In the meantime, we will continue to explore options for "Prelude", including new production companies and cheaper ways to do the project.
Again, thank you all for your support, and watch this space for future news regarding the set.
