Happy August, Phamily!!!

You guys are amazing, 82% of you have already completed your surveys--YAY! 

For those of you who haven't, please do ASAP (unless you have already reached out about to me! you know who you are!) You have until the 8th to complete the suveys! After that date the orders will be locked. If you are getting anything mailed to you, you MUST fill out this survey because it collects your shipping information, thereby completing your order--if you have given me no address, I can't send anything out! D-:


To everyone who has already completed your surveys, thank you so much!  WE are on track to deliver the digital goods on time and that means we should be on track to have the books here in time, too! 


Check the kickstarter fulfillment dates if you have any queris about delivery times.


UGh...am I the only one who feels like a small child waiting for christmas?? It's been along time since I felt THIS impatient!! And to everyone who is wondering...I'm almost done with the script for book 2 whcih means arting will commence, soon!


Thank you for all your support and for your patience!

All my love!

The SURVEYS ARE OUT!
4 months ago – Sun, Jul 24, 2022 at 12:03:29 PM

Omg, FINALLY!  The surveys are sent out, please check your email and complete them as soon as you can.  These surveys are for collecting your shipping information as well as other choices depending on the level at which you pledged. Be sure to fill them out--especially if you have items coming to you!


 Sometimes backers will forget or not realize how important these surveys are, but if I don't have an address I can't get your rewards to you!


I cannot wait for you guys to get your books and hear what you have to say about it! I'm so impatient!!! I'm already trying to figure out if I can expedite shipping, somehow, bc I want this book in my hands so badly!


Thank you so much you guys! Remember, the sooner you fill these out, the sooner Ican complete the book and get it out to you!

Love, love, love!!!

Hi Phamily!

I'm just about to send out the surveys---UPDATE---I was hoping to send them out today but honestly everything I try to do with BackerKit ends up taking 100x longer than it should and also is EXTREMELY confusing (I'm not using them next time)....and that is exactly what's happening now!!!

 I am working to the surveys out to you ASAP.


 Even if you don't have to make a choice with your pledge level, be sure to go through them and make sure everything is correct. I was a bit off on the cost of shipments for those who ordered pin-ups by a few dollars and I'm so sorry for that! I tried really hard to guess it right but I knew I would be off somewhere. 


The book is almost ready, I'm just waiting on your names for the "Thank You" page and obviously, the final list of orders so I know I am ordering enough for everyone. 

Look for the surveys in your inbox!

Love, Beckaroo

Behind the Scenes Update!
5 months ago – Sat, Jul 16, 2022 at 07:28:49 AM

Hey Phamily!

I  just wanted to post this update to let you know that a LOT is happening behind the scenes. The book is going through its last design phase, the surveys and add-on items are being updated on BackerKit and I am working with PrintNinja on the actual work of getting this book printed and shipped ASAP! I gotta give PrintNinja a huge shout-out bc they are SO helpful and responsive. I feel way less stressed about all this now that I'm working with them. I highly recommend!


PrintNinja is located in Evanston, Il, which is my hometown--shout out!! 


AND on top of all that I am also working on Book 2! I am hoping to build a nice buffer of pages before I start posting to Webtoon in the beginning of 2023 and that appears to be on track, which is such a relief.


And, phamily, all of this is posisble because of you! Thank you so much!! 

I will let you know when the surveys are ready and please, please fill them out as quickly as you can--the sooner you, the sooner I can get the PDF copies to you!

Love, love, love,

Beckaroo

Update about surveys!
5 months ago – Thu, Jul 07, 2022 at 08:18:06 PM

Hey Phamily! 

I apologize, I thought I was supposed to send out surveys right away--but, as it turns out, July 20th is the soonest I can get them to you. UGH! I got a little ahead of myself because I can't wait to get all your rewards out to you!! 

 We are going to send the files to print as soon as the funds are available, so the waiting will be as minimal as I can make it because, in my opinion, the waiting is the hardest part of making books!

In meantime, feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

Look for your surveys on July 20th!

Thanks so much!
