Alrighty boys (and girls...girl?), Eternal Day #2 is finally ready for the masses! I just got the revised proof yesterday and it looks great. I'm excited to share it with all of you. We've had some different ideas about making it available to the board members, but here's our final plan of action. If anyone would like a copy/copies of the book for only $2 a book (plus shipping) here's what you can do:
Pre-pay me the money for how many copies you want via Paypal (sorry, only doing this through Paypal). I'll ship it Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation for $6 (sorry, not shipping International, maybe Canada though). Once I have everyone's order in I'll go ahead and place a quantity order through Comixpress. Once I get the books from Comixpress I'll have to put everyone's orders into individual packages and then send them out to you.
This is also a limited time offer. I'll take the orders up until 11:59pm, Friday, Oct. 3rd. That gives everyone here about a week to get an order in. After that you'll have to get it from the Comixpress website for $4 per book.
If you want to do this, just send me a PM here telling me that you've sent a payment and also letting me know how many books you want.
Oh...yeah, right. Send payments to this email address:
And as I just wrote someone else, this is going to be a bit of a process, so you won't be getting the books instantly. First I have to wait until the end of the week to get everyone's orders in, then I have to place the order with Comixpress, then I have to wait for them to print and ship them to me, then I'll have to put together the individual packages and ship them out. So it's going to be a bit of a process. I'd guess at least a couple of weeks from the point of sending me payment. But I'll keep you all updated.
I just sent in the re-order request to Comixpress. This is the automated reply they send you:
"We wanted to let you know that your re-order has been received and has been forwarded to the order department to be entered into our system.
An invoice will emailed for the total due including shipping charges. Once we receive payment, your project will be printed and should be ready to ship out within 10 business days - you will receive an email to let you know when your books are on their way.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions at email@example.com Thank you once again for your order and for working with ComiXpress!"
So now it's the long waiting game. Mark and I are still waiting on the first batch we ordered for ourselves and we placed that sometime at the beginning of last week, I believe.
Anyway, I have to wait to hear from them with the invoice. Once that's paid via Paypal they'll put it into production. They say here it takes 10 business days for printing and production. So you figure a couple of weeks. Then once I get them (which shouldn't be too long, because they're located in New Jersey) I'll have to put the individual packages together and send them out. So then you'll have to wait for those transit times. So we're looking at probably at least 3 weeks before you get the books. Sorry it takes so long, but hopefully you won't be disappointed. I'll keep you posted.
Just wanted to let you know that I got an email today (Oct. 20th) stating that the books were shipped to me. So I should have them tomorrow (Tuesday), which means they should definitely be in the mail for you guys by the end of this week (most likely will ship out this Friday, as that's the only day I have time to do it). That'll put them in your hands probably next Monday or Tuesday. So you've got about another week to wait, but they's a com'in!
