Books arriving! Shipping starting! Other cool things with exclamation points!
Today, 21 of the 32 boxes of books arrived from the printers, finally, after the snowstorm put them off. Ten of them are already in the house, 11 are still in my car awaiting me being able to carry any more up, and another 7 are still in transit and hopefully arrive tomorrow.
Here's a photo of all three forms of the book for Kickstarters: paperback, coilbound, hardcover left to right:
Folks from the Egyptiandaybook.com website don't have the coilbound option, but the paperbacks and hardbacks are also here/en route for them for orders made up to today.
I will be shipping in order of backer number. I will get to you as soon as I can. Right now it's just me, however, and we still have massive amounts of ice on the roads here in Portland and another day or two of weird weather in store. So I will do my best to get as many of these out this week as I can, and I will keep you posted. Zigzag is very displeased with the living room full of boxes (again), so between him and all of you excited to get your books in hand, plus my own excitement, I have lots of motivation.
If you didn't update your Kickstarter survey to get your address updated, I might email you and ask for confirmation before I ship anything to you. This might make your shipment come later. So do it now if you didn't. It will save us both time and frustration.
If you want a book of your own (if you're reading this and you're not a Kickstarter backer for example), you can get one at egyptiandaybook.com - or you can start checking out the other places where it's appearing. Like the iBookstore. How cool is that? It also looks like it's appearing in eBook form on Amazon but the rest of the forms are lagging. I expect that to happen soon for paperback and hardcover. The coilbound is a Kickstarter exclusive and will not be sold at retail.
Watch Kickstarter for the announcement for the Egyptian Daybook Perpetual Planner/Calendar project happening soon as well - you know you'd like a calendar that you could use for yourself with Egyptian dates in it every year, right? Soon you'll have your chance....
Thank you so much! This has been a long time coming. Ironic that the book about time has taken so much of it to come to fruition. But we are finally here and I cannot wait to start hearing back from you about what you think.
