SEE BELOW FOR INFORMATION ON THE PRODUCTION OF CHAPTER 2 (and possibly future chapters!)

Hey all! Just another quick update to say that I got the first batch of books packed up and ready to go to the post office. 

I will be trying to ship out about 50 books per week starting tomorrow. So keep an eye out for your shipping notification! I'll be shipping by backer name in alphabetical order starting with the people who ordered books only, and working up by pledge tier level. I hope this makes sense. 

general shipping time to USA is about 5-10 days, and international is 6-12 days. But I would ask that you please give shipping time at least 3-4 weeks before contacting me. If more than a month goes by since the shipping notice and the book doesnt arrive, I will ship a replacement asap. I am shipping from CANADA, so customs clearance MAY increase shipping time! I thank you in advance for your patience.

PS: more photos of the book were requested, so that will be in another update after this! I'll also be showing off more photos of the rewards and the collector's set once the boxes arrive, which should be soon now!

PPS:

If you'd like to to continue to support 1989nk as a project moving into chapter 2, I do have an official patreon for it where I have patreon only perks and sneak peeks of chapter 2. I'll have more info on the actual printing and production and funding of chapter 2 over there.

PLEASE check it out!  The shipping process is the final part of my budget (and the most EXPENSIVE part), and while I definitely still have the means (i've kept the money saved!), afterwards I will be back at financial square one. So yes, I would absolutely adore any additional support you all would be willing to offer me so that I can keep this project going. If I can have patreon be the central funding base for this project, I may be able to print chapter 2 without running another funding campaign.

The drawing of chapter 2 is already underway! If I keep pace, chapter 2 should be out and ready for printing by the end of Fall this year.

Thanks everyone!!
