I wrote The Monster Alphabet for my son. I'm printing it as a board book, so I can teach him that B is for Basilisk.

Brief but important update

First up, today was huge: the advance copies arrived, and they're gorgeous.

This means that tomorrow, 3,000 more copies of the Monster Alphabet are being shipped to me.

I would like to quickly apologize about getting the time estimates wrong in getting these printed. I've had to learn a lot of new skills, including wiring massive amounts of money to people and taking a book from start to finish. That said, let's do this thing!

What next?

If you haven't yet, please check in to the Kickstarter site and click the link for the survey. This is how I'll be able to get your address to send you your rewards.

Also, if you have already sent in the survey, but have since changed your address, please send me a message through Kickstarter. I will respond to this message with a quick affirmative, which means I've already changed the address in the spreadsheet. If I have not given you an affirmative over a 3-day span, please send me a reminder (as there's a good chance the message can get lost in the shuffle of 1,200 orders).

The deadline for an address change is a moving target. Soon I'm going to be posting shipping schedules - we'll do it by backer reward level. And when your order is being shipped out, I'll send a message through Kickstarter's messages.

And yes, I promise that more photos are coming soon. I'm still a bit worn out from a strange weekend that involved me meeting Chuck Testa, Leeroy Jenkins and the Tron Guy.

      The other way to spot how you've still got a survey out: If you log in to the site, there's a yellow bar underneath the discover/search buttons that says "Reward Survey!" and "Respond now"

      I knew I had completed A survey, but this last update made me uncertain if there was yet another to be completed. Once I logged in to Kickstarter and went to this project :
      I noticed the 'You Selected' indicator on the Pledge/Rewards in the right-column. Below the description of that reward I also see "Survey sent: 01/19/12" with a link to "[my] response".
      Hope that helps you @Josh & @Don.

      Same here, where is the link?

      I can't remember if I completed the survey or not. I can't even find the link for the survey.

      Wait, you can't drop a last paragraph like that without details. Please expand on the story :)
