The Wait is Over

#1 Post by Richardl0380 » Thu Jan 29, 2009 2:44 am

It is now February 1st

Back in November when this book was first announced I ordered it without hesitation, I'd already had Paypal and so far all transactions with it went well. Anyway I waited until the promised day of releasing and was elated when the books started shipping out even going so far as too watching it live on Ustream. One day I got a message that my book was being shipped, it was great until a few minutes later I go another message saying the shipping label was destroyed. I was slightly worried until Tom posted a topic saying that he would re-ship them. I waited about a week before I sent a letter to Tom's Gmail, he didn't respond so I assumed he'd been swamped with many other similar letters and didn't pursue it any loner. Time passed and when the book still hadn't shown up by the fifteenth I sent a PM to Tom inquiring about it. A few days passed and no response came so I sent the same message again on the twenty fourth with a little note on top asking for a response. It is now the twenty eigth in California and still no book, I'm hoping that this forum post attracts more attention.

Basically all I want is a response from Tom saying that I didn't waste $20 and a good 2 months of waiting.


I was finally able to get ahold of Tom through Sage and will hopefully get a PM from him soon. Best of luck to those who have still yet to receive their book.

Since there's no indication that anyone has helped you, in the label destroyed massage thread Tom tells how to contact him about this issue.

As stated above I've tried doing that multiple times. No response.

I suggested to him before to do so, however I am unsure if he tried it.

Trying that as I type, he is "On but never on," Odd that he hasn't noticed this board yet.

I usually see him online at least once (on RvB) when I'm on but I haven't seen him in a while.

Still waiting for the book here too. And i didn't get any messages like "book shipped" or whatever. I wonder if my book is lost or not. Though maybe it's normal to wait something from USA for a month, cause I'm in Russia. So I'll be patient and wait some more time, hehe.

International shipping is 6-10 days, the way the books were originally sent (I am unaware for any "package destroyed" ones). No matter what the country is... I would try and get in contact with Tom as well, Furrypaws.

Well mine hasn't arrived yet either, but I managed to get hold of Tom via his email, and I'm under the impression that a replacement will be sent out when he receives his next batch, though I was told that it would be a while till he gets them. But I'm ok with waiting, its hardly anyone but the postal services fault for the book (books in our combined cases, Richardl0380, Furrypaws) not turning up.

I already got in contact with Tom and he told me more books are on the way too his place. He says 500 books went out but somehow they either got lost or were delivered to the wrong place. So ill just wait for my replacement when tom gets his new shipment of books in.

Sad, though, someone out their, who is not me, is enjoying a nice free TwoKind's Book, -sign- well at least this way it got advertised to someone who might of not known about it :?

Same thing here. I haven't received one but have been told via email I'll get a replacement. I can wait quite a while longer.
