We've started Shipping!

Happy New Years! We hope you and your family had a great holiday. We’re looking forward to an exciting 2013 and wish you guys the best!

We’ve been busy the past week packing and shipping as many orders as we could fulfill (FYI - all orders under $50($65 intl) that don’t include the prequel book).
We’ve packed & shipped somewhere around 600-700 books starting the day before Christmas and wrapping up on New Years Eve. So if you fall into that range, your book should be in the mail!

There have been a few questions and here are the answers to the common ones -

- Digital Packages will drop over the next two months. First will be the ebook(end of January) and secondly will be the tutorial/video(end of February). To make up for the delay, we will be including a few surprise extras. Also, we are looking into a good way to distribute all this digital goodness. If you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear.

- If the schedule holds, we should be getting in copies of the Prequel Book soon and as soon as that happens we can start sending out orders of $50+($65+ intl) that get it as a stretch goal. Unfortunately this is the one thing holding back our shipping schedule, so we’re spending extra to have them airmailed from the printer in asia so we can start shipping sooner.

- We will be contacting you if you haven’t included additional payment for your add-on’s or International Postage. Please, please, please contact us if you forgot to do this. International shipping is expensive and we actually take a loss on each international book we ship.

Here are some photos from the last week -  so many books, & excited to be dropping them off at the post office.
