Oh no, not again...
The books came on Monday afternoon, the last day of AX. When I got home and saw them sitting on the front porch because much cursing ensued, along with wailing and bemoaning the fate of the universe.
Unfortunately, that's not all that happened.
Everything was perfect if you ignore that the cover looked like it had been dipped into red soda. I've contacted the printing company liaison once again. They were very fast in responding with this and told me that essentially, the printing place they worked with messed up. The lamination that occurs on the cover will sometimes change the color of the cover (in this case, it killed it) and they were suppose to adjust the colors to reduce that lamination-color-change-effect. They didn't. The good news is, it's not super difficult to redo, only the cover had been affected, and they had only shipped me the first hundred books. The bad news is that the estimated ETA for all of the books to arrive is now Mid-August.
Once again, we apologize for the delays, but I really don't want to send out an imperfect product to you guys.
Finally: Every single artist who has artwork featured in the book will receive a free copy.
