Tom will be even busier, with, in addition to the 2x/week updating, the processing of all the kickstarter orders, and dealing with the Full print runs of the books, which likely means setting up an online store, and contacting brick and mortar retailers about potentially putting it in their shelves. I just fear he'll spread himself too thin with all the things he will end up promising.
Keenspot is handling the production and Diamond Comic Distributions will handle the distribution as far as I know. There is a system in place here.

One question: If I need to make my donation in two different payments (pre-paid credit cards. Bleh.), how do I tell which reward I wish to get?

If it's not a limited reward, send a message to Tom about it, and mention the two donations you made. That's the easiest.

I know there hasn't been much going on with this thread but...

Does anyone know when these books are going to ship? I'm very excited to get my copy! :flora:

Here's a comment Tom left on the Kickstarter page five days ago.

What made me think he'd upload the new, edited pages to the site first, so we could all go over them and find mistakes before the final versions come out?

Truth be told really, when is this happening? It has been a good long while. Would have been nice for those people to receive their stuff by Christmas.

I still have faith in Master Fischbach. We shall get our books by Christmas. If not... New years is close too!

Last I'd heard, the hurricane slowed everything down. I just got an unrelated Kickstarter package that had been slowed by the hurricane today, so I have little doubt that we'll be seeing our packages within the next few weeks. Now, sketch and signature books might take longer, because they have to pass through Tom's hands, but otherwise, the book shipping schedule isn't anything he has control over, and I don't think he's very much more in the loop on that than we are. The Kickstarter rewards shipping isn't something Tom has control over, so have a bit more patience.
