Hello Duster Army!
We wanted to give you a brief patriotic update as we head into the July 4th holiday season... your books are being printed as we speak! Attached are some photos from the factory floor of uncut signature pages. As we gaze at those gigantic piles of paper, it's suddenly dawning on us just how large of a physical undertaking printing this many books truly is. It's all very exciting for us, and we hope you as well. Binding these reams of paper has not yet begun, but that should be happening in a couple of weeks, and then the long, slow boat from the printers to Amazon for delivery to you.
Speaking of Amazon and delivery, sometime in the next two weeks we will be sending you a Kickstarter Backer Survey. In the time since we created this project, Kickstarter changed how they handle address and phone number information for their users/backers. Once upon a time, Kickstarter took your address and kept it on file. Now, however, they make all Kickstarter projects send out a survey which asks all of your most current phone, email contact, and address information, so that we can properly address your books/your digital copies, etc. Your previous shipping address which you gave us back in ye olden days is NO LONGER ON FILE WITH KICKSTARTER. WE ARE NOT "UPDATING" YOUR ADDRESSES. THE ONLY ADDRESSES WE WILL SHIP COPIES TO ARE THE ADDRESSES WHICH COME BACK IN YOUR SURVEY ANSWERS! This prevents us from shipping the books to the wrong address, and makes it easy for you to update your information up until the day of cutoff (which will be the day that the books arrive at Amazon + 1 day, and we will let you know what that day is, don't worry). You will have PLENTY of time to change your address. But you can't do it yet, because we haven't sent out the survey, and won't, at least until after the 4th of July holidays are over.
So relax and kick back, keep an eye on your email Inbox, fill out your Survey, and we'll all have our books relatively soon (late August/early September). :)
