All of us Year 85-ers & artists would like to extend a very happy & healthy Christmas, Holidays & New Years to you!
Now for some news and business. We’ve sent out surveys. If you didn’t get one please check your spam folder, or email us firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. We’re using this information to gather correct counts on shipping materials and to coordinate our efforts. We know that some of you may move between now and when the books ship, so we'll give you sufficient warning of when we anticipate books to be going out. Since we are working with an overseas printer, we do expect a certain amount of back & forth, hence why we are estimating books to go out in February.
We still plan on releasing the PDF to all of our backers before the book comes out. Our status is: we are currently laying out the book and proofing it. We’d like to hold off on releasing the PDF until after the New Year at this point as we feel it needs a bit more proofing and perfection before it is ready for print. We’d rather deliver a final beautiful and perfect PDF to you then rush and have a less than stellar product. Us Year 85 gals are all home for the holidays, so meeting up as we normally do to proof and critique is a bit difficult this week.
As always, we will keep you informed of all the major steps: the PDF, ordering supplies, sending the book to print, the printing process, packaging deadlines and shipping schedules. We’d also like to keep you in the know about our artists and any events they may be attending with Hana Doki Kira near you.
Thanks to each and every one of you for supporting us. We are so grateful, and we really can’t wait for you to get your rewards!
