EDIT: The livestream went wonderfully. Thank you to those who participated! It ran for nearly three hours. Thanks again to our host and artist, Kaorien! (We'll try to do another of these in the future!)
Other than that, today I sent out the very first backer reward! (The Original Untold Memories reward.) There was something very satisfying about sending that off, especially since I included a mini bonus within. I certainly hope that they enjoy it!
Sending it out reminded me about the special paperback packages that I'm offering to backers. I want to keep an air of mystery around what bonuses will specifically be included, but I think I can give a little more information than I've been offering up until this point.
First of all, here's some shipping information:
- 2-3 day shipping: $11.35
- 7-day shipping: approx. $6
- (time varies by destination): approx. $12
- NOTE: I checked Australia, England, Ethiopia, France, and India. They were all in the same range.
If you have other shipping in mind, I'll of course be happy to accommodate it.
So, if you live in the US and would like the first book (and some bonus material), it will be between $14 and $19.35. If you live somewhere else in the world, it will cost about $20. Of course, this is unless you're already ordering a physical reward, in which case it's just $8.
If you pay for shipping and I find cheaper shipping for you, I'll refund you the difference.
Now, I still want to keep the details secret, but what I will tell you is that every package will include something unique and exclusive--each package is going to have different things inside, with at least one one-of-a-kind item, probably handmade. (And this is along with some stuff that's still exclusive--limited to less than 100 at the very most, and never to be offered again. Also in addition to numbered and signed paperbacks.)
If enough people jump in, I should be able to include an 11"x17" poster in the package, as well, but I can only afford posters in bulk.
If you just want the surprises and not the paperback, it may reduce shipping costs. I'll only charge you $4 (rather than $8), as well. You're also free to order multiple books or extra bonuses--I'll try to combine shipping and get you the lowest price I can.
Of course, this offer is ONLY available to backers. If a backer wants to order on your behalf, though, that's fine by me!
As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns! I'm always happy to talk to you.
