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!
There are plans to perhaps offer the PDF version online once we get all our patient backers their rewards first! If the online PDF is an option, they’ll be offered on the store along with any extra copies of the book, but not before all the kickstarter rewards are shipped out, as we feel like that’s only fair to the people who have made the project possible.
For reference, the scheduled shipping of all the rewards is in June (largely due to printer warehouse complications). Otherwise, you can take a glimpse at the book at the upcoming TCAF, where some of the HDK members will be showing off some advanced copies to the crowd!
