Fiasco Diverted but Delays Resulted
I've been procrastinating this post since it's never fun to be the bearer of bad news. There were delays in the book production. The printer I work with was nice enough to rush me a couple of hundred copies so I could still mail out books before I headed to Australia (and take some with me for my Australian fans). Unfortunately, those books fell apart--something had gone wrong with the binding process. After lots of emails and phone calls, they were able to deduce the issue and I sent the bad books back. However, this slowed down the production a ton and I was unable to mail any of the books out before I went to Australia. Worse, due to other issues, I won't be able to mail out the books until March 2017.
I'm terribly sorry about the delay, but rest assured, I'll get them all out in March/April.
Some good news: I was able to get the T-shirts/hoodies/etc and the mugs in time and I mailed out most of the orders that only wanted those and not any books. I know some of you have received those (thanks for emailing!) which is awesome.
For the digital rewards, expect them to also come out in March. It makes it easier on me to focus on everything in March. Right now, I'm focusing on rebuilding a large buffer for NAV so I won't have to take a break during March.
Thank you all for your patience and have a Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays!
