The I Was Going to be Coy Update
Jen suggested I take a picture of the boxes of packaged and labeled books filling our front hall and include it in this update but I demurred, as it seems to much to me like saying, see! look! we're really shipping books out! Though I admit I see the appeal of the visual aid, so here's a link to a picture of some ponies.
I'm gonna pay for that, aren't I?
Status update as follows:
Another 100 books or so will be shipping out by this Wednesday. This pretty much will account for everything above the Plated level with a few exceptions. We're looking at the remaining Plated and Basics being packaged up in the next two to three weeks, and shipping as promptly as possible as they're ready. Current delay is due to Jen going to visit my mother, and the majority of the hands-on help we're hoping for being in New York for NYCC. If all goes well, we'll have everything shipped out by the end of the month.
But admittedly, all does not seem to go well very often on this project.
I cannot thank you enough for your continued patience and support on this. We're nearing the finish line, and we are as desperate to cross it as you are to see us do so, trust me.
And I swear, we ever do this again, we're using a fulfillment service. When it was just a tiny little idea of a Kickstarter, it seemed not only viable but reasonable to think we'd handle the fulfillment ourselves. When we hit 2000 backers that would mean shipping 6000 books, we probably should've rethought that....
