Addressed! And, Pester Your LCS!
Just updated my spreadsheet with the change of addresses I've got so far.
I got messages from and updated addresses for: Len W, Milan K, Tim B, Angelo (Theo) M, Caleb Z, Arul II, David W, Benjamin P, Arlo C, Nick S, Charles W, Patrick (David) C M, Wei Jen S, Michelle F, Doug T, Will G, Radley M, Tom S (Aussie Tom), Jan from Comic Cafe, Fraser A, Michael S, Paul S, Jason F, Tacto, Santiago (Susan SO'K), Kevin L, Duane M, Hunter M, David M, Alex (not Barry) S, John who is moving RIGHT NOW and wants his book held, Shay M, Bjorn C, Stewart R, Marysia K, Art W, Jack S-H, Alex H, Aaron C, James H, Derick M, Cydney F-B, Nathan G, Dan R, Clyde D and Courtland LV.
If I have missed your message, or you have not yet had a chance to contact me about any address change since September 2012, please message me via Kickstarter! (I get a bazillion email messages every day so keeping address changes via the Kickstarter message system ensures I'm less likely to lose them). If for some reason your book gets lost in the post or mis-sent (which we will try to minimise via tracking and these boring but important updates), fret not! I will have enough that the book can be replaced.
It's kind of lovely looking through the addresses. We have books going to Moscow, Santiago, Singapore, Melbourne, Budapest...
Retailers, by now you should have received a package of signed posters to use as incentives/store decoration/unfeasably large and dubiously aerodynamic paper planes. If you need more, just tell me! I have LOTS.
Lastly, Smoke/Ashes hits stores on 19 Sept, and Grindhouse #1 hits stores on 2 Oct. If you have a beloved local comic book store, PLEASE talk up the books to them! The more books I sell, the more Dark Horse (and other publishers) are likely to let me write additional graphic novels! If your LCS would like signed posters or other support from me, please have them get in touch!
