The Last Books Have Shipped Update

Posted by Greg Rucka (Creator)

Yes, you read that right. Our long, (inter)national nightmare is over.

As of today, 13 December 2014, all books have shipped.

Given that it's the holiday season, shipping may be slow. Please allow two to three weeks for your backer rewards to arrive. If you do not have your books by early January, send us a message here and we'll check the tracking numbers etc and get it all sorted out.

This said, there are still a couple of orders outstanding. Some people had books returned to us, some books never made it to their backers. We're working through these last points as quickly as we can.

But, for the most part... yeah, finally, we can say that this campaign has come to its end.

I'll be posting a review/overview/debrief/mulling of the process on my Tumblr and at the Lady Sabre site in the next week or so.

On behalf of all of us -- Eric, Rick, Jennifer, and myself -- thank you so much for your support and your inexhaustible patience. This was a wild ride, and we've learned a lot, and we will not make the same mistakes next time....

Hold Fast!

Greg

      Got my book looks great and the extras are fantastic. Happy Holidays. Update us if you do something on here again.

      I received my book and all the wonderful extras on Thursday. What a fabulous Christmas present for me! Everything is simply beautiful. You folks did a phenomenal job, well worth the investment and the wait. Count me among those looking forward to volume 2.

      There's been a fairly steady stream of boxes arriving at our house, mostly Amazon, for the holidays. Two young boys and loads of cousins to buy for. So this Monday when I brought in the packages from the front step I thought it was a typical day. I brought the boxes up to the guest room, aka "the Christmas staging room" and started to unpack stuff so I could label them and hide them. Unfortunately for my system, Lady Sabre was the first box I opened! I was immediately giddy and forgot to unpack anything else. Everything is just gorgeous, thank you so much for all your hard work!! Well worth the wait and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

      I was away for two weeks, and the book got stuck in customs during this time, and after 10 days they sent it back.. how can I proceed to get my book now?

      Thanks for all your hard work, Team Sabre!

      Stay Loose!

      I'd like to know that too. We should probably give Greg some time to recuperate from this Kickstarter first, though.

      Great news!

      ...so, when should we expect the Kickstarter for the next volume to launch?

      I received my book this week, and it is GORGEOUS. Some of the highest production value I've seen from any Kickstarter campaign. The annotated script book is nearly as riveting as the comic itself! I'm so proud to be a backer and cannot wait for Volume 2!

      Hallelujah! Congratulations on your first Kickstarter, glad that you survived the experience. Lady Sabre loves wishes you a Merry Christmas and so do I!

      Hooray! I have literally approached my mailbox with bated breath for a solid 12 months, always wonder "is this the day?" Now I can begin my compusive mailbox-checking in earnest!
