3/04/2014: To invited artists who are still waiting for their copy, extremely sorry if you still have not received any updated about your copy. Miwa can only send 5 books each week right now because she is still taking care of moving places for her new job, so that explains why its being slow right now but she says she will be more free in a couple of weeks. Once Miwa has sent your book, you wil receive an email from her. Very sorry that its taking so long!
Also once again if you want to know more about your order in specific detail please contact directly for a faster response instead of waiting for me to ask her X)
So as of end of January, all preorders have been shipped out, We've heard that there are still people who haven't received their copies yet but hopefully that will be soon. It should be around up to 3 weeks maximum.
MiwaAkai will continue shipping out normal orders as well as artist copies, the next time she will visit the post office to send out the orders will be on Monday 24th.
We've decided to give away one free copy of the Ethereal artbook, shipping included!
All you have to do is reblog this post: ethereal-artbook.tumblr.com/po…
Winners will be picked on 7th March, and will be contacted via the Tumblr ask inbox, so make sure you have that accessible!
See the book on display
If you haven't purchased the book and would like to see it, I will be having a stall at Perth's Wai-Con on 1st-2nd March, and will have the book on display (I cannot sell them since the stock is actually in Victoria), but you can grab fliers and pass them to your friends, parents, cats and dogs.
My table will located at Table I in this map:
Other fellow artists will be trading at Wai-con as well, so if you'd like to get your books signed by them feel free to visit their tables:

Just a friendly reminder
I have to stress that Miwa has been taking care of payment and shipping by herself, as unfortunately I (Grey) cannot assist in shipping since I live on the other side of the country (literally the furthest end of Australia). so I'd like to kindly remind you to please be forgiving, as she cannot send your orders immediately. As a teenager, Miwa also has other commitments in her life, especially with her new job (congrats!). And please understand that she has been taking out so much time to do this for charity purposes.
Thanks for your feedback and support
But to most of you, thank you very much for your feedback, we definitely appreciate reading all of them being posted on our page. We are glad that most of you are happy with the book!
P.S It has come to my attention that the red kites are not visible in every page, either due to the printing or just simply forgotten. So I will write an answer journal soon, which locates each kite you can find.
