Here is a picture of my son with all the pallets of books right after they got delivered.
On Monday I finally got all the books shipped to my garage and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. But have no fear. They have all been moved to my bookshelf and the boxes are numbered so I don't loose count of what numbers I'm on when I stamp them all. I picked up a bunch of packing supplies on Saturday and my wife and I spent a late night yesterday getting things ready to start sending out.
We have managed to get about 200 books stamped, numbered and wrapped in foam so far and plan to keep chipping away at it until all 700 pre-orders and kickstarter backer orders are sent out. It has been a real job to figure out the best way to ship out everything without using the slowest method. I believe most of the books will be sent out Priority Mail which means you should be getting your book/s pretty soon...as soon as we can get them packed anyway.
For those of you who pledged $99 or more, I am half way finished with all the paintings. This means that half of you will receive your painting with your books and the other half will get your books now and your painting later when I can finish it. I tend to be much slower than I thought when it comes to painting with real paints so please bare with me. I promise you will get your painting soon though.
Just so you know, I'm hoping to get everything packed up by the end of this week so I can send out everything on Monday. That's the goal anyway. Hopefully it's reasonable. hah.
Thanks again for your amazing support in all this. We are soooo close now!
