The calm before the storm.

 Tomorrow, a truck will deliver almost two tons of books in front of my door!


All books are assumed to be signed, but when I created the survey I simply forgot to ask you who I had to sign for (oops). I know many of you want to offer the book so I can’t just use the name of the backer. And what’s interesting about signing is the personalization so I don’t see the point of just a signature alone.

So you’ll receive tomorrow an email asking you this information!


Hundred of enveloppes are waiting for the books to arrive.

I can’t wait to see the books printed, but a little more patience, I’ll need some time to make all the packages, sign books and prints, ship all the parcels, not to mention the rewards to finish !

See you soon!

      @Saz The two tons are not signed, I "only" ship the half :) But the signing is the best part of what I'll have to do, really! What I would be afraid would be more, problems at the post office, parcels not delivered or lost, mistakes in the parcel content, wrong address, everything but the signing :) But thank you!

      Like the others have said, please don't hurt yourself, take your time with the signing.

      That being said, looking forward to the book :)

      @Alexandry Don't worry about the signing - I'll take the time - but also I like the fact there are people behind the books, not just anonymous.

      @Bobbie Thanks! I'll be with my brothers and sisters, and I guess even if there are a lot of books, we'll all have fun to do the whole thing :) I'll take photos!

      Good luck! Take lots of breaks. Stretch your arms and shoulders. Drink plenty of water. Have fun also; you've done a wonderful job with your book.

      Please take care.
      You're too nice and I'm afraid you're underestimating the effort.
      Too late for the KS survey, but I would go for the "don't sign" option.

      @Ira No problem! I'll have my family to help me with the logistics :) If you don't want a signed copy, just write "don't sign" in the form you'll receive tomorrow!

      OMG. Please wear a wrist brace and don't overdo it.
      I'd ask you not to sign my copy, but one book in a few thousands won't really help...

      Unless you add a "don't sign" option in the survey for more people?
