Anthologies are currently being sold at conventions that the participating artists attend, or perhaps in their online stores! We don’t actually necessitate that any of the artists put up their copies for sale either online or offline after we send it to them, so it’s actually at the artists’ discretion to do so.
That being said, I think your best course of action is to contact an artist you support. Ask if they’re selling their copies of HDK and if so, where you can purchase one!
The Year 85 members themselves are keeping the extra reserve of books to donate and to support the funding of HDK volume 2. We’ll eventually have a store up too with extra copies, but it will be at a much later date, and we very much encourage you to first seek out copies from artists first!
We will indeed be making an announcement soon.
The rewards actually have all been sent out, but we’re currently in the process of re-sending the returned packages and hashing out whatever packages haven’t made it to their correct recipients yet. If you don’t receive your reward within the next week or so, I would definitely encourage you to message us on Kickstarter so we can double check the status of your package and make sure it wasn’t returned.
Artist copies have also been sent out and should be arriving soon. We’re waiting on the announcement after those have made their way out and compensation for commissions and pages have been properly dispensed.
That being said, if you were also supposed to receive a commission yet but haven’t, PLEASE let us know so we can follow up with your artist!

We just finished the last of the packing today for all backers, and along with that are the boxes of artist copies! All artists should have all of their copies within one or two weeks at the most.
However, some artists that we’ve seen in person have already received their artist copies (some, if not all), so it might just be the case that the artist in question isn’t ready to put it up in their store yet!
If there’s an artist you want to buy from in particular, I would definitely try to message them individually and ask if they’re planning to put their HDK copies up for sale. We don’t stipulate that an artist has to sell them, so technically they have every right to keep all the copies and just hand them out to friends.
The only way to be sure is to ask them!
The kickstarter rewards are in the process of being packed. There are a couple hundred of them, so we’re working out cars and carts to get them to the post office! At the moment, all the tiers up to the $100+ tiers have been packed! We’re planning to ship them out within the next two weeks.
Since all of the coordinators do have day jobs, we can only get together to do this on the weekends. We’re sorry about the delay, but they’re very much on the way, and we’ll post an update (with pictures) to let you know when they’re all sent out!
Thanks for your patience!
First of all, thank you so much for backing!
We’re currently working hard to ship out all the rewards (there is a shipping/packing session scheduled for today, in fact), but we have been talking about the process of volume 2. As of this moment, volume 2 looks to be a combination of both artists that have participated before, artists that they can newly introduce to the book, and a portion of open submission!
I can say with a good amount of confidence that there will definitely be a chance for anyone interested to submit to Hana Doki Kira. At the moment, we’re just figuring out the proportions of how many of those entries will be put in the book!
Thanks for your interest, and we hope you’ll love the project just as much when it’s in your hands!
