Yes, the day some of you thought would never arrive is here. Books have finally started going out! We had notice that we'd be receiving the new badges this Tuesday just gone (May 30th), and they arrived as planned. Once we had this date, we were more than happy to start sending out the packages that didn't have badges, and the first of these went into the post last Friday. Since then, we've been making multiple trips to the post office to get more in the post. As I type this, around 100 or so parcels have gone out.

We are still waiting for the copies signed by Steve Jackson to come back to us, but these are due to be picked up from him next Tuesday, arriving back with us on Wednesday. We'll then get these packed up and sent out with the others.

You will have to bear with us slightly as we send them out. Another of the drawbacks of being an indie book is we have to do all of this ourselves, and there are only so many books you can carry to the post office in one go. However, we are endeavouring to send out as many as we possibly can each day, and I'm hopeful that they'll all be in the post within the next couple of weeks. I know some people have already started receiving them, and I hope you guys are enjoying it!

With this all in hand, we've also set up an online store to sell the book on. We're not going to start doing so until all the Kickstarter copies have gone out (we want you guys to have it first, after all), but we are taking pre-orders. If you know anyone who wants a copy of the book, but wasn't able to back the Kickstarter (and I know there are some of you who follow these updates that didn't back), you can pre-order your copy here.

Gavin and I also did an interview with Pipedream Comics about the book. You can read that here, and check out their review of Steve Jackson's The Trolltooth Wars here.

Thanks guys!

      Yippee, looking forward to it. Feel free to throw in a few extra FF badges! Not sure if you're going to the Fest in September but could sell the books for you otherwise?
