EDIT 4/18/2011: PREORDER NOW CLOSED! Thank you to everyone who has preordered. Those who have preordered will soon receive an email from me confirming whether your payment has been received, or if you still need to send in your payment. The book has been sent to the printer, and barring any shipping issues, should be ready for Fanime, A-Kon, and AX.
EDIT 4/12/2011: Extending preorder until the end of the week, so Saturday 4/16! Send the preorder in if you haven't! Again, this will be the LAST printing of WAITT Comics, so get your hands on one while you can.
First off, thank you for reading and supporting WAITT Comics! Volume 2 will be released this summer! Due to the high printing cost, it is highly likely that this will be the LAST
volume of WAITT!Comics that will be printed as a book, but the comic itself will continue online.
Now, a note: Serious buyer only, please! ONLY PRE-ORDER IF YOU'RE CERTAIN YOU'RE NOT GONNA BACK OUT. I have no way to force you to pay for the book you've pre-ordered, so I'm going to take your word for it, but I've had problems with people pre-ordering and then bailing out and not paying at the last minute. This happened a lot when I was printing Reborn VHL doujin
, so I'm trying to avoid dealing with that this time. Thank you.
If you're interested in pre-ordering, please read on CAREFULLY. There's a lot of information below, so I'm not responsible if you misread any information.
how The pre-order works
It's simple: you pre-order the book during pre-order period, pay me the money within payment period, and when the books arrive from the printing company, I will mail them out to you. Expect them to be mailed out to you around mid-July, because June is con-season. I will send a notification once your book gets mailed out, but once it's out, it's out of my hands. Shipping time will vary depending on where you live.
How long is Pre-order open?
Preorder will be extended until Saturday, April 16, 2011.
Anytime between now and APRIL 13, 2011
how much it will cost
$15 + shipping
The first 50 (fifty) preorders get a personalized sketch of any WAITT character they want. Also a set of 4x6 postcards of WAITT characters.
Shipping is $5 within the US, $7 to Canada, and $10 everywhere else in the world.
Acceptable methods of payment
I prefer PAYPAL.
If you don't have a paypal account, make one. It's not difficult. You don't even have to give them your bank account or anything like that. All you need is an account on Paypal, and you'll be able to pay me with your credit card. When sending in your payment, please check the GIFT option so I don't have to deal with Paypal fee.Payment using Money Order works too.
Money order is a very easy method of payment for those of you living in the US. All you need to do is to go to ANY US Post Office, and tell them you want to buy a money order. Say you're paying me $15. Then you tell them you want $15 worth of money order. You pay the post office people $15, and they will give you a check/certificate that is worth $15. You will then mail this check/certificate to me.I am also willing to take concealed cash in an envelope. However: if the cash does get lost in the mail, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE.
I've received cash payments before and have never had any problems with missing cash, but you never know. It's safest to just use money order since you need to go to the post office anyway to mail out some cash.AT CONVENTIONS!
I will be attending FanimeCon 2011
in San Jose, CA (May 27-30), A-Kon in Dallas, TX (June 10-12) and Anime Expo 2011
in Los Angeles, CA (July 1-4). If you plan on attending any of these cons, feel free to preorder a copy and pick it up at the con. You can just pay me when you pick up the copy at the con, BUT PLEASE DON'T BAIL OUT. Picking up WAITT v2 at a convention will also save you shipping money!
When is the payment due?
AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I'm self-publishing, so while I do have the fund to print a certain number of books, it'll be nice to get some money back to cover the printing cost. I'm setting a deadline of APRIL 27, 2010 (which is a month from now) for you to send me the payment. If payment is not received by this date, your pre-order will be canceled.
Information about The book's content
WAITT volume 2 will have 80 pages total as its predecessor. The content is black and white, but the front and back cover are full-color. The book will contain all the comics after volume 1 that's been posted online, including some extra illustrations / sketches that are exclusive to the book, character profile pages, and other stuff
How to preorder (IMPORTANT!)
To pre-order, you must follow these steps precisely. Failure to follow these steps may result in a lost pre-order form.
To preorder, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "WAITT V2 PREORDER". Please send the email using an email account you check often, as this email will be the main method of communication between you and me. DO NOT NOTE ME ON DA! I don't check my DA notes often, and sometimes forget to reply to unread messages, so shooting me an email to this address works better.
In the email, copy paste the following, and fill in all the information to ensure proper delivery:
- DA USERNAME:
- YOUR NAME:
- YOUR COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS:
- YOUR COUNTRY:
- # OF COPIES:
- DO YOU WANT ME TO SIGN THE BOOK? (yes / no)
- HOW WILL YOU BE PAYING? (Paypal / money order / mailed cash / con pickup)
- IF PAYING BY PAYPAL: WHAT IS YOUR PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS?
- IF PICKING UP AT CON: WHICH CON? (Fanime / A-Kon / AX)
Once I get this pre-order email, I will reply to you with the total cost and info on how you can send the payment.
I think that is all for now. If there is any additional information I missed, I will update this journal and include that info at the top of the journal. Feel free to comment if you have any questions.
Thank you again for reading WAITT Comics. I hope to be able to continue this comic for a long time, because you guys are such awesome readers.
