Update on lots of things

Posted by Megan Lavey-Heaton (Creator)

Hi, everyone! It's been awhile since we touched base, so we wanted to give you an update on where things stood:

- The bulk of the Namesake order (all except the 60 books that were shipped ahead for TCAF) is literally on a slow boat from China. I'm hoping to receive word this week on when the shipment will arrive, then I can start packing orders. I will be in Canada for a friend's wedding from May 15-21, so I can't send anything then. 

- All of the book plates are signed. Isa and I spent the last night of TCAF getting those ready. Huzzah!

- I have all of the pages for the top tier donation level in hand for when the books arrive.

- Isa has completed the art for the $35 and up level and sent it to me. I will be converting the files to JPG and uploading a ZIP to the Namesake site later today, then messaging the recipients.

- I have all of the pendants for the Kickstarter in hand, and they look amazing. Optimystical Studios did such a lovely job, and fans gushed over their work at TCAF. We're actually going to be selling some other custom pendants that Isa designed in the Namesake store, and those should be going up today.

- Everyone should have gotten the PDF of book 1. If you are still experiencing download issues, please message me so I can work with you on getting you a copy.

- All of the commissions are complete and delivered. Huzzah!

So, we're just waiting for the books! When they arrive, I will be sending everyone a message asking you to double check the address provided so they'll get to their new homes. Isa and I had a fantastic time at TCAF and enjoyed meeting all of the backers that stopped by our table. We couldn't have done this without you! Here's a glimpse of what the table looked like for TCAF.

      It was! I went from here to Toronto (7 hours) for TCAF, then to New Brunswick (14 hours) for a good friend's wedding. It was completely worth it though, as their families are some of the nicest people I've ever met, and the area is just gorgeous. Everything just seemed to happen all together this year, but now that I'm back, things will calm down. I'm actually working on revamping the Namesake store this weekend as well to coincide with the book coming out.

      Oh good, I'm just glad I didn't miss it or something!! Thanks for the super-quick reply, I know you're really busy! That's a lot of cross-border driving in such a short time...

      That's on my to-do list for tomorrow. I ran out of time between the two drives to Canada. Have yet to invent that TARDIS ...

      Hello! I'm really excited for the book coming soon, thanks for all these updates! The pdf was great! I was just wondering, did you guys release the link for the $35 and up levels? I never got one, so I wanted to check on that. Thanks!
