Shipping delay!

Posted by Jim Jourdane (Creator)

A brief note to keep you informed:

The packages have been shipped 10 days ago now, travelled 700km and arrived in the big postal center of Roissy… and have been stuck since then because of a labelling issue. U_U

Since I learned about the problem, I have called the Post Office every day to move the situation forward (I can only act from a distance, the warehouse where the envelopes are stored is not open to the public).

But I've been told today that the situation has been unlocked! The Postal employees finally agreed to add these labels so the shipping could continue. I’m really sorry for these 10 days lost. The packages should continue their travel tonight or tomorrow.

Just like you, I hope now that they arrive as quickly as possible! 
All my friends who made a Kickstarter have met some issues somewhere in the process, until these last weeks I thought I was more fortunate... Never celebrate too soon!

Thanks again for the patience,

      @Christine : yes, I was also expecting the reception earlier, but the backers in the US are receiving their book right now, almost everyday a US backer tells me they got the book, so I hope it won't last too much now!

      Hi Jim,
      I was excited to read this update in late July, and hoped to receive the books by mid August. It is now September 7, and I am concerned because I have not received them. I live in California, and perhaps there is further delay shipping to the U.S. Could you please update me. Thanks very much. As an ameteur paleontologist, I have personal experience with "fieldwork fails", and so look forward to your book.

      Hi Jim! I haven't received my book yet, it's shipping to Mexico City. I recently had an issue where another Kickstarter project didn't get my shipping address at all, just wanted to check if that's the same issue here :).

      Thanks in advance!

      I still didn't receive my book (the Netherlands) do you know why I have to wait this long?

      @MrClem : enfin une bonne nouvelle! Oui les envois à destination de la France ont été envoyés séparément, ils n'ont donc pas été bloqués avec le reste
