In the door, out the door!
Hello Kickstarter Family,
I hope this message finds you well and in the best of 2012 spirits.
Last Thursday, December 29th, 2011, I received 35,000 pounds - 10,000 copies - of Great Food Starts Fresh. It was a sight to see 21 massive pallets of books arrive in 18 wheelers and get unloaded. (Some unloaded into my storage space and about 2,000 loaded into the U-haul that I rented which are now stacked throughout my apartment.) Whew!
I am very happy to say that after 28 hours of organizing, unwrapping, signing, re-wrapping, and packaging books, 4 trips to the post office, 3 sharpie pens, 4 ink cartridges, and countless Lattes (thank you, Latte) - all of the Kickstarter books have been mailed out!!! Yay! (That said, a few of you have not sent me your mailing address—looking forward to receiving them so I can mail you your copies.)
It's been an amazing week and I am really happy with how everything turned out with the books.
Thank you all again for your support and encouragement along the way. It's been quite a journey and I am excited about this next leg.
I am working on updating my website to have a page with upcoming events (like book signings). When it's posted, I will let you all know.
I wish you all a wonderfully delicious New Year.
