Contrary to what is being heard through the rumor mills, it will not affect it in anyway. The French backers are scheduled to receive their books in February/ March 2019. The United States Kickstarter backers are projected to receive their books in December 2019.
This Kickstarter is also run by a separate person and company. Therefore, the French Ulele project has nothing to do with the US Kickstarter project. The only basic common denominator is that the book is written by the same artist.
The main objective of this project, is that I (Lyn, Metalhead Minis) would like to bring another tutorial book from another artist overseas. This is for the American hobbyists or anyone else in the world, to have another person to be available to learn from. I feel that it brings togetherness and is good for the community to have as many people as possible to learn from. Since Mohand is a friend and I feel that he is a vert talented artist and sculptor, I discussed this idea with him and here we are today. =)
