TLA International Shipping Update and PATREON

TLA International Shipping Update and PATREON

First off, International Backers, rest assured, your books are on their way! Due to the increase of book size, and a few other factors, (yay for upgrades!) not just printing, but also shipping is more expensive than we had previously budgeted the Kickstarter for. I tried to negotiate with UPS, USPS, and FedEx about this, but shipping prices are hard to haggle on. Domestic shipping prices did not change much, but for international, it has made a huge difference.

Books Are Shipping!!!

Books Are Shipping!!!

So far, all USA domestic backers (who answered the survey) have had their books shipped! International orders are next, and all should be out by next week! After backers who answered the survey have books shipped to them, I will reach out individually to folks who did not answer the survey (and then I will do website orders.) If you have not yet answered the Kickstarter survey but are reading this, please tell us your address so we can ship you your books asap!

Shipping Dates! Finally!

Shipping Dates! Finally!

Great news! We will receive the books here in Colorado on January 30th. From there we will be signing and shipping each and every book out to you all individually which will obviously take some time, too. Although I am not sure as to how many books I can personally sign and ship out in a single day, my guess is that it will take me two to three weeks to get all the books out, meaning you should get your books by mid-February or early March!

Shipping Update and Prints

For the past 5ish months, I've been in near constant contact with our overseas printer and I am amazed at how many times they keep pushing back our delivery date. Despite this, the books, posters, and prints are all done and waiting to be shipped--and look amazing. I'm told I should get final overseas shipping info next week. So, that's really good news!

The Last Amazon Update - Printing Details Finalized!

David and I are starting 2018 with a big update and some very exciting news! We just finalized our book specs with our printer, Mark Verria, the CEO of “Onthemark”, and sent him our down payment which secured our order, making it "official!" Yay!

Now, you might be thinking, “Finalized? What do you mean, Jamison? I thought the book specs were done before you started this Kickstarter.” And yes, they were, BUT David and I decided that The Last Amazon is too good to not be better, so we, like any sci-fi lovers, got UPGRADES!
