      Whatever happened to the "you'll be safe here" posters?

      Hi there. I guess I was supposed to receive a copy of the book. So far, nothing in the mailbox... Can you tell me if you sent it ? Thanks a lot.
      Best. David

      I received the book. It looks lovely. But my pledge amount included the 18" x 24" poster print of the "You'll Be Safe Here" page, a Something Terrible bookmark, and some other randomness. Can we expect to receive the additional items?

      Makes sense Dean, thanks for clarifying.

      Okay, after reading the comments, I am so eagerly looking forward to getting my shrink-wrapped copy! It may seem odd, but I need something to pick me up after last week's chaos (and this week's oppressive heat). Time to check the post box! Oh, and Dean, great news about your pain and medical recovery! Blessings! ~ R Andrew

      Jason - Yeah, we figured it would be easier to do signature plates sketch plates to put on the first black page in the book rather than having ICC ship me the three hundred books that got one or the other. I was happy with the idea because it gave me a nice white frame to draw in.

      Received my shrink wrapped book and book plate today, thank you. I am a bit confused though as my $300 pledge was supposed to come with a signed book with a sketch inside. Are the character sketch bookplates intended to replace that reward?

      @Dean - I really loved the book. The story is as poignant as ever and the physical package was perfect.

      It really WAS worth the wait. Thanks for sharing your story with us.
