Update #14

The first wave of rewards goes out!

7 comments

After several days of laborious sketching and packing and stamping and mailing, we've sent out the Australian half of your rewards! (Or are about to. We need to find a post office with $800 worth of international stamps.)

That means no books, but we HAVE sent:

  • Your Jessica charm
  • Your character prints (if you bought a book!)
  • Your sketch (if you paid for one!)
  • Your various bits of non-book non-figurine merchandise (if you pledged for them!)

Expect it all to be winging your way by the end of the year. If you haven't got your non-booky non-figuriney stuff by the end of January (hey, we gotta allow for Christmas chaos!) let us know at orders@bittersweetcandybowl.com and we'll sort it all out.

We really hope you enjoy everything! And feel free to post your sketches over on Candybooru if you feel like it!

BUT THE BOOKS!

Oh yeah! The books. Well, we finished them! And we sent them to our printers. And we're ALMOST done approving the proof copies they sent out to us. It basically works like

Printer: REQUEST!
Us: QUICK RESPONSE!

*3 DAYS ELAPSE.*

Printer: REQUEST!

And so on. Right now we're waiting on them to send us a couple packages and a contract to sign.

At this stage all we know is that the books will be printed by mid-January, but we're not entirely sure how many delays will get inserted between that point and the point where your book is on a delivery truck in your home city. It could be January, it could be February. We hope January! And we will let you know when we get any further details on delivery estimations.

A CHRISTMAS COMPROMISE

I did say the books were done, though, right! So how about this:

On Christmas Eve, eBooks will be emailed out to those who pledged for them.

That way you can read them "early" if you want to, or just ignore the links and wait for the physical book to arrive, but AT LEAST YOU GET THE CHOICE. And you can enjoy all the other little things we sent your way. Right?

Anyway. Time to find those stamps. Thanks for all your patience!

      I'm a huge moron and only now put my shipping info into kickstarter. Will I still get my charm?

      No trickery, likely a spam filter. We definitely had your email on our list but it didn't go through - so I've just sent the links to your Kickstarter inbox instead.

      Can't seem to find the fabled E-books in any of my e-mail accounts.
      What kind of trickery is this?

      Your package should have included it! We must have forgot - with like 10 different things to go into the envelopes in different combinations, so this kind of thing is inevitable. We'll mail a necklace to you this week!
