The Happiest of Holidays to You and Yours!

CHAMPIONS OF IMAGINATION!

Books/posters are trickling into the mail! It's a slow and tedious process - made all the more AWESOME by the INSANE number of you who backed the project! I'm endeavoring to have all books out the door by the New Year, but there may be a little spill over. Commission packages will follow after the holiday (some pieces of which are still coming together - I'll let you know on an individual basis as to status).

Thanks to each and every one of you for making "Earthward" and 2013 amazing. 

The Happiest of Holidays to You and Yours,

Bryan Q. and the "Earthward" Team.

      Kenozoic - We're about 700+ deep into the 1300+ that need to be shipped, starting at the $15 tier and working up alphabetically. It's a slow process, but we're getting there! Stay tuned.

      Hi Bryan, just wondering how the deliveries are going. I see that some people received their books at the end of December, and I haven't gotten mine yet. Thanks!

      MIKE - So glad you enjoyed it. Will hopefully know more towards summer, as to whether or not we'll be doing Book Two sooner rather than later. All has to do with scheduling and finances!
