The PENPAL story has received a great deal of attention around the internet. I've revised and expanded it; now I want to publish it.
433 backers pledged $15,946 to help bring this project to life.

Packages have shipped!

All of the packages have been mailed out to everyone who submitted the survey! You should be receiving/have already received an email about the status of your package, so keep an eye out! If you haven't received your package by the end of the week (in the U.S.), then let me know; international orders, please give it a little more time. I hope everything arrives quickly and safely!

I really hope that you enjoy Penpal, and I can't thank you enough for your support. You guys have been amazing. The book will launch to non-Kickstarter people soon, so if you like the book, I hope you'll let everyone know by telling them straight to their faces and/or by leaving a review! :)

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks so much!


P.S. When you get the package, unroll the poster and lay it face down on a flat surface and put some heavy books on top to flatten it out again!

      @Jessica: I got part of my package today, and the rest is probably going to be here next week sometime. I'm in Melbourne, if that means anything!

      Hey Jessica,
      I'm in Australia and I received my package either yesterday or the day before (Tuesday or Monday, as it's the 8th today.)
      Not sure if this helps!

      However, I think there was something missing in my package, which might have been shipped separately but I'm not sure, so I'll just send a mail through Kickstarter.

      Should I have got a tracking number or a status email for delivery to Australia?

      If anyone from Australia receives theirs let me know :) Looking forward to reading the book in hard copy!

      Ah yes, the "Santa Claus" package -- I KNEW I should have made that a package on Kickstarter! haha. I really hope you like Penpal :)

      Got the package today! Kind of made me sad, was holding out hope for the 'hand delivered' option :)
