thanks and have a lovely festive season
To all of you lovely backers in the UK: you should have your books by the end of this week if not already
to all of you lovely peeps in Europe: you shoudl have your books by the end of next week
to all fo you lovely US and Rest of World lot: you should have your books by the end of the week after next.
If you have moved your address and NOT let us know please inform the old address to forward it. We have sent all by recorded delivery but are NOT a big mailing house so would appreciate any help you can give.
Thank you again for being great, we want to make sure you all receive exactly what your pledged for!
the books are off!!
See the picture below of the finished boxes at 4am
Apologies for the delay. Packing 400 books and addressing them correctly and getting them sent round the world is more work and money than I thought. Taking pictures is easier.
Each book has been sealed in bubble wrap in a solid box and will be sent by recorded delivery - those of you in the UK should expect it in the next few days (if not tomorrow), those of you further afield should expect to wait longer.
The prints are loose in side so be careful on opening it and those of you that ordered a print of 'prince' will receive these by post separately.
thank you all again for your wonderful support.
PS The first edition of the book has already sold out!! All copies from teh publisher have been allocated with back orders coming in for the next edition. I still have my own lot of signed copies that I am selling here but they do not have the kickstarter prints in them...
Just to keep you updated on our progress, here is a picture of Martin signing a book (next to the books he still has to sign).
Unfortunately, we aren't quite as efficient as Amazon at packing and distributing packages, but we are doing our best!
We should have everything ready to be shipped in a week or so, but it may be a couple of weeks after that that everyone will receive their book.
All the best,
Martin and Jake
