Happy Easter Weekend Everyone!! ^-^
Some exciting news, all the reward items (besides the warehousing titles) have arrived to our office and we've been super busy setting up the assembly line for fulfilling all the orders. Warehousing titles are scheduled to arrive Monday (April 6th, 2015) and we'll be sorting it out then. Our goal is to finish shipping all 400+ orders by next Friday (April 10th, 2015). Some orders have already been shipped out and some are currently in processing. Please note, we have to manually enter every single tracking number on the google doc. so it may take us awhile to update the listing. However, all tracking numbers (if applicable) will be listed by April 17th, 2015 or earlier. Again, you can check your status order/tracking # on the google doc: http://bit.ly/InStockYaoi.
Special announcement: For any Finder kickstarter order with at least 1 Finder volume, we'll be throwing in a completely FREE Finder Volume 7 Postcard/Bookmark set!! :D Initially, we announced that we wouldn't be able to offer it, but some things happened and now we can!~
Finder + A Foreign Love Affair Restock Distribution:
For those who missed out or know anyone who missed out on the Finder Kickstarter, here's some good news for you guys! We're planning to start selling Finder Volumes 1 - 7 + A Foreign Love Affair on http://www.akadot.com/ starting April 13, 2015 (tentatively). We'll also be shipping our distributor the restock books in about 2 weeks, so major retailers such as Amazon, RightStuf, BookDepository, B&N, etc. will tentatively start selling late April or later. Please be aware that retailers only carry our titles if they place an order with our distributor. Therefore, they may or may not have our titles available for purchase.
