To the mailboxes (starting next week)! These now exist! All the shipping labels are printed and we’re mailing out the Kickstarter/pre-orders starting today.
You can buy one! If you’re in Ann Arbor, STARTING TOMORROW you can walk into any Underground Printing location (including the Bo Store) and pick one up off the shelf. You can also get in on Kindle right now (that’s a slightly different version).
We’ll have them in a few more stores, and I’ll announce where when those are available. You are welcome to pester your local Book dealers/grocers/etc. to carry it.
FOR KICKSTARTER BACKERS:
We just finished printing all of the mailing labels, and now it’s just a matter of stuffing books into envelopes and shipping them, but that takes several days. I actually have an order to these this year: you’re all sorted by an average of when you pledged and when you got me your address, minus a day for each dollar you contributed.
Whatever gets done today will go in the first shipment, then we’ll hopefully get the rest done next week. That means most of you should see books arriving in the mail next week. International orders will take more time, as will people who got me addresses late because we weren’t able to get your address included in the bulk order (those will go out manually after the big orders are done).
Most should thus arrive sometime in the next week, but you know how it goes: even while sending first class USPS will do things…
If that happens to you, email me.
IF YOU PRE-ORDERED:
You’ll get an email when it goes out. Should be sometime next week. The Kickstarter Backers are our first priority, then you.
The first batch (if you got just the Italy shirt and got your order into us in time for express) has shipped. The next batch is being made slowly, but probably won’t go out for a few more weeks as we focus on getting books to people.
IF YOU KICKSTARTED AND I DON’T HAVE YOUR ADDRESS
We now have addresses for all but 32 impervious-to-email orderers of our 3,086 Kickstarter Backers. I’ll post a list after the jump of those people we’re still trying to track down. You can go to this link to check your order status. I emailed everyone again this morning too.
The following backers need to get me their addresses (or confirm the old one).
