Good News, Everybody! (Mostly!)
If you backed at the $50+ level and did not participate in my Rosary kickstarter (in other words, if you are only expecting a Spots book), then your book is now in the mail.
If you're expecting a patch alone, or a patch and thank-you card, I'm currently addressing those.
If you're expecting a Spots book and some Rosary gifts, your package is on my floor right now, waiting for the last bits of the Rosary gifts to arrive so I can distribute them according to my (checked three times) checklist.
That's the good news!
The not-so-good news is that international shipping cost me far more than I had calculated. It's a significant enough hit that I'm having to seriously consider how to handle international backers in future projects--if I can at all. This was a great disappointment to me, since discovering I had international fans was very exciting... but unfortunately, I can't afford to take that kind of loss per book.
Obviously someone must invent a transporter. Someone alert IBM.
Anyway, expect another update in the next few days once the small envelopes are on their way!
