The books have begun shipping, a little bit at a time. I'm making frequent trips to the post office each day to mail another stack. People should start receiving them as early as next week. On Monday I should be able to get my postage meter set up, which will greatly increase the number of packages I can mail at once.
I have received a couple of emails from people telling me they need to change the mailing address for the book they ordered. That's too little, too late. All of the labels were printed and affixed to envelopes weeks ago. I have boxes and boxes full of labeled envelopes, most of which now have signed books in them. Finding one order to change at this point would take me hours of sifting through envelopes, which are hours that I don't have time to waste right now. I suggest just making sure you have your forwarding address set up correctly, and the Postal service will take care of getting it to you.
Also, at this point, if you haven't paid for your pre-order, you're just going to have to wait and re-order when the book goes up for sale again. You had over a month to get the payment here, and I'm now at the point where I need to focus on getting these books out.
That's it for now. I need to head to the post office again, and find a Kinko's.
