Beto has arrived.
It is my great great pleasure to tell you all that I have actual books in my possession, and they are beautiful! Coach House printers did an amazing job. What validation for so much blood, sweat and tears to be able to hold the work in my hands.
I leave tomorrow for a trip to visit with Dad and show him our book. You can't beat this kind of anticipation. I plan to mail everyone's copies within the next few weeks, so please bear with me while I am traveling and finishing the other Kickstarter rewards to mail along with your books
ORDER A BETO PRINT – In the meantime, those who ordered prints may receive them first as they'll be mailed separately. If you would like a print, you can buy them on my Etsy shop. I hope to recoup a few of our unanticipated extra costs this way, so please share the link!
If you buy a print and I'm already mailing you something, use the coupon code KICKSTARTED to receive free shipping. Please only use it for yourself, though, as I can't afford to give free shipping to all. : )
More Good News – We've decided to keep the pre-order prices ($2 off per book) until I am back from traveling, which is September 12. So tell your friends and family to order now.
You can now see on our website our generous supporters who are helping tremendously to promote Beto's Burrito. Our 50% of profits are also now going to the Center for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation here in Toronto. They have a superb program called Strengthening Families that works with kids, teens, and families affected by mental illness or addiction. We're pleased that CAMH Foundation is excited to work with us, as well.
Thank you to everyone who's been talking about this project and sharing it with others. It means everything to Dad and me!
