Hello to you, our beloved backers! As promised, here is your shipping update.
First, the good news - 2/3 of our Kickstarter packages are shipped as of Friday. Several hundred of you got parcels of books last week, and two hundred and five MORE of you will be getting packages this week. Here's the breakdown:
- ALL US packages except the earlybird plus-ones and the double sets have now shipped (we had an envelope size failure that has kept those biggest parcels briefly benched; they'll go on Friday).
- About half of the Canadian packages have shipped, the other half will go this coming Friday.
- The remaining Toronto packages are being delivered by our stalwart flamingo courier this week (thanks Nathan!).
- International worldwide packages will also be shipped this coming Friday
- BY FRIDAY EVERYONE'S BOOKS WILL BE MAILED AND THERE WILL BE ICE CREAM FOLLOWED BY NAPPING. Ahem.
- Some of you will notice, as you receive your parcels, that you've gotten more books than you backed for. That's not an error. It's because we know you to be awesome and they are your reward for awesomeness.
- If you got fewer/different books than you were expecting, it's just an accident and is not a referendum on your awesomeness in any way and we're super sorry. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what's missing, &c and we will make it right.
Colouring pages and audiobook will be released in mid-July, along with an awesome special surprise (hint: DISCO) as a reward for your patience.
Thanks so much for bearing with us on this amazing journey. Thanks for tweeting, face booking, instagramming and tumblring your reactions; thanks for telling all your friends how much you like the books. Thanks especially to those of you who emailed us photos of your totally adorable children reading their new fave FR book - that's my paycheck right there.
BTW, you're totally the best Kickstarter backers in ever (and your hair looks so great like that).
love and flamingos,
