      No just checking nice to hear it coming in December thank you for the update.

      Hi Jorge! Thanks for checking in! The last 2 project updates have a detailed breakdown of the new perks everyone is receiving and the new timeline! You can read the most up-to-date info here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rockpapercynic/be-a-turtle-and-other-secrets-to-a-happy-life/posts/1956755

      Here's the short version of the product update:

      -All softcover books are being upgraded to hardcover casewrap books
      -All hardcover books are being upgraded to signed limited artist's editions with signed and numbered screen prints as inserts
      -All books are getting spot UV covers to make them EXTRA shiny
      -We've upgraded from 14 to 34 pages of book-exclusive content not available in my webcomics archives

      And we're now adding new content pages to the HMS Bad Idea reprint so there will be bonus illustrations by:

      Nick Seluk (The Awkward Yeti)
      Megan McKay (Doodle for Food)
      Olivia Walch (Imogen Quest)
      Pigeoneer Jane (The Pigeon Gazette)
      Kory Bing (Skin Deep)

      However, this is going to delay the books until December, which I know is a bummer. Feel free to message me if you have any additional concerns and we can definitely work it out! :D

      Hi hope all well so what happened with the book

    4. Peter Chiykowski 3-time creator on June 20

      Hey Conrad, thanks for asking about the project! The books have both 100% prepped for print for some time now, but getting the files to the printer has been held back a little bit as I work with a couple potential publishers for Be a Turtle. I've been meaning to post an update when I actually had concrete news to share, but negotiations have gone slower than expected and there's not much I can reveal until I get confirmation on what I can announce. :(

      I'll make a stop-gap update tomorrow with some sample pages and an update on the timelines. The digital copies of the books will still be ready before the initial estimated ship date, but the physical books will likely be a little delayed. More on this soon!

      Hi Jorge! Thanks for checking in! :D

      Yep, everything is progressing really well! The books are designed and samples have been sent to the foreword writers. We're still adding in some of the bonus pages included because of the stretch goals, but that's all on schedule so far!

      @Jorge: Good question! This will all be handled through the backer survey, which I'll send out a couple months in advance of shipping.

      Are you using a PM and survey so you know what what book we want

      Ooh, depending on what faceplates get unlocked for the dice tower I might take you up on that! Otherwise I'll probably just stick with the book :)

    15. Peter Chiykowski 3-time creator on February 7, 2017

      @Asterism: Good question! (And thanks for backing!) Unfortunately, to be able to make the quantities work with exactly 200 limited edition hardcovers, we're pretty much locked into the quantities in the tiers that we have. However, it looks like you backed the two hardcovers tier, and I could swap out your second book for either a dice tower or an extra softcover copy of Be a Turtle and I could put your hardcover copy of "Is It Canon?" in a library or something like that. Let me know what you think!

      What if we only want one hardcover - is that a thing that can happen? Specifically, I just want the turtle book!

    17. Peter Chiykowski 3-time creator on February 6, 2017

      @Shawn: I'm stoked for Calgary Expo in April! It's gonna be rad! Thanks for the support--I'm still taking it all in too!

    18. Peter Chiykowski 3-time creator on February 6, 2017

      @Linden! Yes, for sure! I've added your name to my shipping notes for patron bonuses!

      Welp, I've held off on getting a dice tower for long enough in my life. Today is that day. Also, books and a coin that I fully intend on making use of the next time you swing by for a concert or a convention.

      Whoa, need to back up and fully admire what I've just done. Keep up the good work!

    21. Linden on February 3, 2017

      You have no idea how happy I am about the turtle book. My patronus is a turtle. So excited to get my copy! (And maybe some extra goodies for being a patreon sponsor!?)

    22. Peter Chiykowski 3-time creator on February 2, 2017

      @John: I look forward to bumping your fist right in front of your wallet, just to rub it in!

      Peter, you glorious so-and-so, my wallet officially hates you for what I'm going to be shelling out.

      @EnzoComics You made a turtle pun on my comments page? I turtley should have seen that coming.
