Update #15

Books arriving...

Hey, everyone!

If you haven't received your books, please be patient. I know the Post Office was overwhelmed with holiday mailings, and with almost 900 packages en route from our offices here it's so hard for me to respond to everyone emailing asking about when to expect the books with anything other than this impersonal update- I apologize, we DO appreciate all your support! But only a handful of books have arrived, there's nothing to worry about if you haven't seen yours yet.

Please give it two more weeks to allow for Post Office delays, and if you haven't received a package by the 20th we will figure it out then! (Hopefully at that point the number not yet delivered will be only a handful instead of 800+!)

I'm headed to Los Angeles at the end of this week on a VERY special Cursed Pirate Girl mission, and can't wait to give you the updates! You will be VERY happy!!!

Thanks everyone,

      I have not yet received my copy of the book. :( I was told that shipment would be in the works some weeks ago and I am still waiting for updates regarding this matter. I hope to hear from Thomas soon because this is quite worrisome. >__<

      Are we still going to receive a free print? I think it was posted that the print would go out separately after the books. Thanks.

      Hi! I pledged 62$ to get a signed copy plus an extra one - and I did receive the signed copy a while ago, but still no sign of the second copy. Is this normal?

      I received my copy the other day and it made me yelp for joy. BTW, what is the best way to go about getting extra copies? I want to give them out as birthday gifts all year! Thank You and God bless all of you!

      Just got mine here down in Mexico. Looks amazing and the extra embossing in the orange cover is awesome!! Though the "r" and "l" of "Girl" in the mini poster got erased... but that doesn't matter!

      I got mine (could have has it earlier as I didn't check my po-box for a week.
      Unfortunately it got a little bent in international transport, but the actual art and story is fine :)
      Great job guys

      I got my Cursed Pirate Girl stuff and I am very happy! But I noticed something weird. I have the Orange Logo Edition and inside, there are like 4 blank pages. Is this normal? Is it supposed to be like this?

      Received mine yesterday, but I should let you know that mailing it in just an envelope with no cardboard did allow it to arrive a little bent on the spine...

      Mine arrived yesterday! I have a tiny cluster-style condo box, and it was not damaged at all thanks to the boards backing the print. It's really lovely, and the embossing on the front was worth the extra effort! Thank you!

    SIGNING EVENT. Nothing says piracy like indentured servitude! Have Jeremy Bastian for a day, swabbing the decks, cleaning windows (he's REALLY tall!), or if you want, simply have him sign books at your event and tell stories of the Omerta seas. This pledge includes 100 copies of the book, and Jeremy will bring all that great hand-made stuff that you can only buy from him at his rare convention appearances. You must cover transport, feeding, and if necessary, housing this poor lad for the trip. He does have a really large moustache, but is in fact very friendly. (Not like those nasty pirates at all.)
