Thank you again for all your support! It's been a crazy month. We still periodically check KS, wondering if we have more backers! Right now we're in high gear, sending out the final book files to the printer, designing and ordering your merch and prizes, and chatting with all kinds of hip bookstores that want the book! We're even planning an awesome launch party here in Los Angeles.
Anyway, we've gotten a few questions from you fine folk. We're gonna man up and answer them below:
1. Who are you again? What am I backing?
Fake answer: We're the group starting a new Japanese sex pillow company. Thanks, and don't forget to give us your pillow's name and favorite color!
Real Answer: We're The Devastator, a new humor book series featuring fresh satire and comics from both renowned and up-and-coming writers and artists. Edited by genuises Geoffrey Golden and Amanda Meadows.
2. What have you done with my money?
Fake answer: It's now safe in a secret account in the Cayman Islands.
Real Answer: Amazon has just released the funds to us, meaning we can now give a few bucks to our super talented contributors and pay for lavish printing expenses. Nothing is too good for you!
3. Will we get to see any sneak peeks of our prizes?
Fake answer: Never. Even when you receive your t-shirt you will have to use a special type of iron to see the graphic!
Real Answer: Totes! We're finalizing your treats now, so expect a few choice snapshots soon!
We expect all Devastator goodies, including the book, to arrive mid-June. Once they arrive we'll mail them to your respective homes and/or offices. Expect a message requesting your information within two weeks.
All right everyone, keep the Q's coming! More stuff coming soon...

We here at Devastator HQ are SO GLAD everyone wanted The Devastator to happen as much as we did. Thanks to you, we're off to the printers next week!
We'll keep you updated as often as possible with project news, press stuff and not to mention ETA's on your books and prizes! The book will be in stores on June 29th, but you can expect your copy in mid-June.
Let the Devastating begin!
