The books files have been submitted, the number of books in the first edition has been set, and the order has been paid for!
What does that mean?!
Quite simply, it means that from now on, instead of new orders being added to the number, the total has been set at 2750 and the countdown has begun!
If you're already a backer, that means you are all set. Your order is in and the books will come to you. If any of your friends want a copy though, they should grab one sooner than later - There are only about 1000 extra, so spread the word! They can get theirs at http://is.gd/TheBennyBook
Now that the books have been ordered, here are the last few steps:
- It will take them 10-12 weeks to land on my doorstep
- I will order the art prints, posters, and tee shirts at around the 8-week mark so they all arrive at about the same time as the books. They will only take about a week or two to turn around.
- 'll have the performance/potluck/packing party when the books come in and then...
- I'll send them to you!
As a bonus for those who help pack, I've ordered some special versions of the book with white covers instead of blue, so they look like Benny. Those will not have dust jackets, but they will come in special plastic bags to protect them. I will give one of those to each person who shows up. They will be unnumbered so will all be equally valuable to collectors someday.
Lastly, if you're not on Facebook or haven't been following along, I did a lot of the work in open sessions with a camera rolling as I answered questions and worked on the designs. As always, you can view all of them here whether or not you have a Facebook account: http://bennypointer.com/video-updates/
Thank you *so* much for all your patience and support through this whole process! I appreciate each and every one of you!
