Good timing, we finally finished the proofing process yesterday and the new files were uploaded to the printer's server this morning... except there was an error and for some reason it accepted the old version of the files! I have to wait for the manual review process before it unlocks so I can do it again (24 hours) and then wait for the real version to be reviewed (24 hours) so then I can finally order the first print run, which looks like it will be on Saturday.
Printing takes 10 - 14 days, and I will be getting all the packaging ready so they can be sent out on the day I take delivery. The digital books will be emailed out at the same time (only seems fair that all backers get them at the same time, whether they opted for print or digital) so my best guess is around 18th - 20th October.
I will of course post an update when the print run is placed, and when the book finally launches.... thanks for your patience, not long now!
Hi Billy, any idea when the digital version will ship?
Hi Dave. Yes it's looking promising, almost at 90% funding now with 6 days to go!
Thanks for the idea, I will definitely do that and see if Reddit can help tip me over the finish line!
It's getting so close I can taste the pasty's :) It may be worth posting this on reddit as well either in /r/kickstarter or /r/food, spread the word :)
Well my wife and I are looking forward to having the pasties, and I'll order a t-shirt from your website as you said :) Almost half way there now !
Sorry Dave, there didn't seem to be enough interest in pasties and T-shirts combined and it would have made for an expensive tier so I've not done one. New pasty tiers are added though, and you'll be able to order a T-shirt via the website after the Kickstarter campaign is finished (if you do, make a note on the order and I'll give you free postage!)
Thanks for your support Dave. I'm still working out the logistics of pasty delivery and what tiers will be what price, but I'll bear that suggestion in mind and try to do that if I can - hoping to post the new tier levels tomorrow morning!
A quick request, that if you do add pledges for some pasties you've made, can you include one with pastie's and a t-shirt, then I can upgrade my e-book pledge and get everything in one hit :)
