Dear 3,732 humans,

Thanks (I actually sincerely mean that) for backing my project you lovely bunch of bastards! I'm blown away by the total in the end, fucking great stuff. The good news for all of you is that because we smashed the target, we now have a nice pot of money to make beautiful things. We've been looking at a few different printers and getting different quotes, so I can now confirm that we're going towards the super fucking top end of the spectrum, because we can afford to.
Also, thanks so much to everyone who shared, retweeted, blogged and talked about the campaign over the last 28 days, none of it would have happened without you, so please all give yourselves a big pat on the back for that.

So what happens next?
Well at some point over the next few days, you'll receive a 'backer survey' thing from me (via Kickstarter) which you'll need to complete and send back to me. I know it's boring but can you all please just fill it in properly and not try and be 'funny' with your answers. It's really important that everyone gets exactly what they've pledged for and when dealing with thousands of bits of data, if people start putting silly answers, it slows the whole process down.
A lot of people are asking questions (either in the comments section or through direct messages on here) about whether they can have personalised rewards (like books and Hate Mail) made out to other people. The answer is yes, you can have your things made out to anyone you choose. You can specify all this stuff in the backer survey. 
After I've received everyones surveys, the rewards will start to be fulfilled!
It will start with people getting told to fuck off on the internet, then they'll be a nice little spot of trolling, then the 'art' rewards will start going out. The more experiential rewards will be happening sporadically over the next couple of months and will be arranged via email to fix times and dates that suit everyone. For those of you who have opted to go for a pint with me in 5 years time, just fucking relax for a bit and sit patiently.

That's all for now, cheers again for backing and climbing aboard the good ol' Hate Mail ship. I can't wait to make a beautiful book now and also tell a lot of you to fuck off in various formats over the coming months.
