First the good news, the premium edition prints are printed and ready to ship (see picture below). Rather than them coming physically with the premium edition book, they'll be shipped separately in sturdy corrugated cardboard boxes to ensure no damage, so expect them to start arriving in the coming week.
Now the bad news, we have been informed by our printer that the books
will not arrive before Christmas. We had hoped for a Christmas release,
but always in the back of our mind knew it may not work out due to the
high volume of shipped goods that happens during the holiday time. And
sure enough, we have been informed that the shipping company to move
1000 books from Asia to the US is running behind schedule, and the port
that receives and processes the books before they are put on a truck for
transport to the US warehouse are showing massive delays. Turns out a
lot of people want their stuff shipped at the holiday time, and so the
system is jammed. Anyways, we've been given an expected date of end of
January, first week of February.
Sorry to anyone who wanted to give the book as a Christmas gift, and we
hope you understand. Any questions, feel free to send them our way, but
otherwise, thank you for your patience, you are still gonna get a high
quality book in the really near future. Thanks again for all the
support, can't wait to share the final book with you all!
