Okay kiddos, it’s time for a new update on the preorder of the Strays volumes. The biggest bit of information is the books are in production at this very moment and will be here by the end of the month! Woohoo!! They are on schedule to ship to us on December 20th and we should receive them within a week after that. Though we also have to account for a small delay for the holidays, so we expect to get them in hand at the beginning of January at the latest.
To make shipping as easy as possible we are going to start with all of the book-only orders, then move on to the orders with extra items like prints/charms, then we’ll begin working on the sketched-in copies. I am going home for Christmas and won’t be back until January 2nd, so we can’t get started on the sketched-in copies until after that, but we’re going to get them done and shipped as soon as possible. Just please keep in mind it will probably take us a bit of time to draw in all of these!
We also have a smallish change to the books: To meet required specifications we had to increase the number of pages for both volumes to 152. This means little to Volume 1, but Volume 2 now includes a few more bonus illustrations as well as two extra pages of concept art.
To wrap this up, we ask again that anyone who has NOT sent us your bookmark choice (Feral, Meela, Piper or Holland) to do so now. You can contact us at sales (at) straysonline (dot) com. If you do not give us a choice by the time we ship your order you will receive a random pick.
We are also ending preorders on Wednesday, December 18th. If you want any of the preorder bonuses be sure to order by then! The books will still be available for regular sale after the preorder ends.
