Hello, wonderful people.
Either you are seeing this and saying, "oh, here are those laggards!" or you have completely forgotten about us and this is a missive out of the blue. In any case, this is us saying hello and apologizing, fervently, for the delay of many of your Kickstarter rewards.
This past summer and fall were difficult ones for us. As previously mentioned, Shannon's hard drive had a complete meltdown, resulting in the loss of most of our photos and design work for A Thousand Natural Shocks. More personally, our grandma passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly. She had just traveled to San Francisco from Hawaii to see the performances. She helped with the costumes, made sure we ate well, told us stories, and was incredibly, glowingly happy to be here while we worked on something so enormous together. Then, a few weeks later, she was gone.
It was a difficult goodbye.
But, we are working again. We have a new project that we're exploring in the studio (it's about love songs and we're collaborating with an opera singer; I can't even begin to tell you how excited we are) and we're working hard to put together the rest of the Kickstarter rewards. We took fresh photos and are starting to design the books. Kat sent us a beautiful new short story that we'll be including and Shan is working on some illustrations. The DVDs are here, the t-shirts are nearly done, and the postcards (printed with new photos) just arrived this week. As we pull everything together, we'll be sending out surveys to collect any information that we still need.
We are so sorry for our immense lateness. We hope you all have been well and are sending you our very best wishes.
