Latest Updates from Our Project:

July 2023 Update
8 months ago – Tue, Jul 04, 2023 at 08:31:57 AM

Shipping Complete!

Thank you for your patience over the past few months. We still have a handful of backers whose orders are incomplete that we're trying to reach (see below). Everyone else has already received their book or its on the way. 

At the time of writing this update:

  • Nearly 750 packages have been delivered
  • Another 200 are currently in transit
  • Any remaining Canadian and US packages should arrive this week
  • Some international orders have arrived and nearly everyone else should get their packages this summer

Shipping Trackers

Nearly every package we sent out was sent out with a shipping tracker. The following exceptions were made due to tracked shipping costs being more than the order itself:

  • Heavy orders to the UK with two or more books
  • Some orders to Australia, EU, Singapore, Indonesia, and Argentina

If you are from any of these areas and want to confirm your shipment was sent, please email [email protected].

Incomplete Orders

We still have a handful of backers who we're trying to reach whose orders have an incomplete survey, bad address, or are missing payment for shipping. If you want to confirm that your order was complete please email [email protected].

Old Address

We've had a small handful of US orders come back with an out of date address. We'll reach out to these customers this week to try to figure out an alternative arrangement.

The Hunt for the Undine (PDF)

We're deep into writing this stretch goal adventure. We're hoping to have it move into artwork and layout this summer and then into distribution this fall. We'll keep everyone updated with progress, art previews, and solid dates as we get closer to release.

Shipping Update 2
9 months ago – Thu, May 25, 2023 at 09:45:07 AM

Thank you for your patience as we work to fulfill all of your physical rewards. Shipping began in April 2023 but we had to pause operations for a few weeks while I dealt with my mother's death and buying/selling a home. I apologize for the recent lack of communication.

The good news is that shipping has been back up to full speed now for two weeks and we expect to be 99% done shipping by mid June 2023

  • We are generally shipping the highest tier orders first. 
  • We expect to have most Twilight Hunter or higher backer tiers shipped and on the way by the end of May 2023. 
  • Sunlit Seas Swimmer and pre-order backers will ship June 2023.

Some quick shipping stats:

  • 266 packages delivered / on their way
  • 421 orders are packed and waiting to ship
  • 31 orders are incomplete (see below)

Shipping Notifications

Our main shipping partner is providing tracking numbers for all shipments, but sending tracking info to receiver emails is not automated. Therefore, we're manually adding tracking info to those orders in Backerkit. If you can't find your tracking info, please email [email protected] and we can provide a tracker or let you know the status of your order. Also, we're working to streamline this process and make it easier for all backers to clearly know the status of their shipment.

Incomplete Orders

There are still 31 backers that we can't fulfill due to the following reasons:

  • Postage unpaid
  • Failure to complete backer survey
  • Out of date email address
  • Missing/Incomplete Address

If you think you might be one of these orders, please check your email junk for a Backerkit survey or an email from [email protected].
