Books shipping from the printer!
19 days ago – Mon, Oct 12, 2020 at 09:23:10 AM

I paid the final invoice to the printer to release the printed books, and they told me the shipment date of the books to Seattle was October 7. Usually freight shipments take 7-10 days, so it won't be long until I have them in hand and can start packing them up for shipment to you!

Sorry we were delayed a bit, but it won't be much longer now.

At the printer!

It's taken a little longer than expected, but the book has finally been sent to the printer and is in production! They're estimating a ship date in mid-October.

The delays have been to make the book even better than originally planned, and we hope you think it's worth the wait. We added 16 pages to the book (for a total of 232 pages).

We've given each chapter room to breathe, with elegant chapter headings and closing icons.

We added another short story, so there are now four new stories in the book, plus a lot of bonus promotional art, some of it brand new.

73% of surveys in!

Hi all!

We're down to less than two weeks before we go to print, and we've gotten responses to about 73% of the surveys we've sent out. That means there are 150 or so people who haven't let us know their address and any other info that we need (such as whether you want to be thanked in the book, and how your name should appear).

Check your email and look for a survey link from BackerKit. They'll be sending out automated reminders as well, with new links.

Thanks for your support of the project!
