More addresses needed!

Hi all,

Addresses

I'd like to thank the 80ish% of backers who have already filled out the surveys giving me your postal addresses. (Don't forget, if you move house in the next few months your response CAN be changed!)

To those who have not done so yet, please fill them out (I don't have a link to it personally- it'll be a case of finding an email from Kickstarter pointing you to a survey). Obviously I can't send you the books you've paid for without knowing where to send them. ;)

Payment

Payment has gone through for almost every single backer (far more than I predicted- it's not uncommon for Kickstarter campaigns to lose 10% of their funding through prevented payments!) You may have noticed the money being taken, and it's only a matter of days before Kickstarter sends that money to me and I can start using it to pay the printers!

Printing etc

I'm currently in talks with printers in the UK and the US, sorting out prices and so on. Specific delivery times are impossible to predict right now, but needless to say I'll be getting everything under my own control done as quick as possible.

Regarding Skypes and free seminars

It may be a little while before I have enough time on my hands to initiate contact with all of the Skype/seminar backers by myself. (On top of this book I work three jobs, I'm a Masters student AND a Boys' Brigade captain, and there's a 36,000-strong Facebook community I manage as well.) But everyone who pledged these amounts is more than welcome to send me a message or email (via autisticnotweird@hotmail.com) if you want, so we can start planning for it early. :)

I think that's it for now- thanks as always for your support of this project, and I look forward to getting the addresses from the last 20ish%!

Take care,

Chris Bonnello
