The Kindle edition of So Bad, It's Good was released today, and can now be purchased from the Kindle Store. If you were expecting to receive a Kindle copy, a gift certificate should be arriving in your email shortly! Thanks again for your patience, and I hope everyone enjoys the book!
Merry Christmas! Hopefully, most of my American backers have received their copies of So Bad, It's Good (or will today), with the rest coming later this week. International backers may have a longer wait, but the books are on their way.
For those of you who enjoy the book and want to learn more about it and other projects I'll be working on in the future, there are a few different places where you can go for information. Here are a few links you might want to check out:
Thanks again for supporting So Bad, It's Good, and I hope I'll have other projects that will interest you in the future!
Just a quick update: all physical book rewards have now been shipped, with the rewards outside the US having gone into the mail today (much to the displeasure of the customers behind me while they processed all of the customs forms). I'll post the next update when the Kindle edition becomes available!
I received my shipment of author copies of So Bad, It's Good this week, which includes all of the copies going out to Kickstarter backers. For backers inside the United States, all shipments will be in the mail by tomorrow (Thursday), which should be in time to get them to you by Christmas. I prioritized the domestic shipments because they had the best chance of arriving before the holiday. Next, foreign shipments will be going out (starting on Thursday), and I'll work to get all of those out by the end of the week.
If your reward included the bonus chapter, your package will include an envelope, which should include a letter from me, the bonus chapter written by Allison Pregler, and an additional supplementary list of ten more movies that are "so bad, they're good." If you pledged at a level where you received just a single book without the bonus chapter, a letter from me should be tucked inside the front cover of the book. If you received multiple copies of the book, check to make sure you see which one is autographed; the others will be "standard" copies.
For most backers, receiving these packages will fulfill the entire order. The one exception will be those who are expecting to receive a Kindle version of the book. That version is not yet available, but should become available before the end of the month. The day it goes live, I will send gift certificates good for one Kindle copy of the book to all those who have requested one.
Thank you to everyone for your patience and your pledges. Happy reading, and I hope you find some new bad movies to enjoy!
On the third try, I was finally sent a proof copy of So Bad, it's Good that was rectangle free! The book is finally ready to go, and is already available for purchase at Amazon.com.
What does that mean for you backers? I've already ordered my author copies -- over 100 of them! -- to fulfill your orders and those for friends, family, and other supporters. According to CreateSpace, I can expect to receive those copies by next Wednesday, and I'm hoping they'll come sooner. Once those copies arrive, I'll work to get them shipped out to you guys within 24 hours so that most of you can have your copies in time for Christmas. International rewards will vary by country, with Canadians hopefully getting their orders not long after domestic backers. I'll be shipping everything out at the same time, so it's just a matter of shipping times. If you're expecting a bonus chapter with your reward, that will also be included. I'm still figuring out the best way to incorporate it; I'll likely have it in an envelope with some other goodies, or find a way to slip it inside the back cover of the book.
For those who should be receiving PDF copies of the book, those will be emailed to you in the next 24 hours. Those who requested Kindle copies will have a slightly longer wait; the conversation to the Kindle could take a couple of weeks still, but I'll be sure to fulfill those orders the moment the Kindle version is released.
If any unexpected delays crop up, I'll be sure to keep you posted. Otherwise, the next update will come when the books have been shipped!
