Update #23

THE BOOKS ARE REAL

Have gotten a few queries (rightly so) about delivery date on print books (and incentives). 

So, here's the score:

The books are real, and on the way. AND THEY ARE GORGEOUS. They also happen to be held up for customs review at the port on the way in from China. I'm told they should be to me by the end of next week, at which point they'll start going in the mail like crazy.

Proofs that arrived ahead of the shipment from China!

RE: incentives - most from contributors are in to me to include with the books. And there's still a workshop and a critique out to be redeemed (both held up on this end).

Again, appreciate everyone's patience on this! 

All the Best,

Q
