I'm starting this thread for the people who have received their books. ( And hopefully for people to post shots of their books in a foreign habitat, ie not in the shipping boxes they've lived in for so long! )

I haven't gotten my book yet, but I'm SOOOO excited - especially about the Zaebos spread! SmileSmileSmile

I know some of you have got yours already! How do you like them?

The only thing that I'm slightly disappointed with them is in the nighttime scenes. When I got the proofs sent to me those pages were BLACK. I kid you not, BLACK. So I had to make a truckload of changes to the characters to make sure they were visible.

HOWEVER, to have another set of proofs done would have cost me over $80 (on top of the additional fees I was already paying to upload a new set of files). Not having the money to do this, I opted instead to print the altered pages out on my colour laser printer - which is of comparable quality to what they had sent me, and see if the changes I was making were sufficient.

I got them to a level that I liked and gave them "go ahead and print without sending me proofs" permission. It turns out that I slightly overcompensated and the characters are a little washed out, but better than being invisible!

Aside from that, I'm quite happy with how they came out ^_^

I got mine! Smile I haven't taken a pic of it yet, but I shall! My mom plopped the envelope in front of me barely 15mins ago, and it only took me a moment of "uhhh... what's that?" before I remembered and eagerly sought to open the package, pulling at the edges until I found the convenient pull tab... The book is shiny and I love my asked for sketch! <3 I haven't read through it yet, but I shall, and I shall have to edit or post here again once I've done that and have a pic or two of the book... right now it's sitting next to me on the kitchen table, on top of Journey to the Center of the Earth, which I was about to start reading...

Mine arrived a few days ago! But since that's in America and I'm here in Israel... I have to wait until someone comes to visit, and then I can read it. ^__^

Hmm, my vol 2 still hasn't come in. How long until you think I should be concerned?

There are two US orders that I haven't shipped yet because of goofs on my part when I made my trip down there. I'm mailing them out later today. Maybe one of them is yours? Otherwise, maybe it's just taking a little longer? I dunno.

Alrighty, I have patience, just hoping it didn't get lost in the mail Smile Well, if one of those are mine and even if they aren't, it's worth the wait. Smile

I had a U.S. order but it hasn't come in yet. Was mine in the list of not shipped yet, or have they all been shipped? Can't wait to get my copy Smile

Nevermind, just went and checked my PayPal history and realized that the shipping address I gave you was my old one. I sure hope the post office still has my change of address.

Mine arrived yesterday. I had no idea what is was so it was a nice surprise when I opened the parcel.

It looks great and I love the little touch-ups, there were a a few changes to the dialouge that were quite interesting/entertaining as well.

I haven't taken a picture of it but I can if anyone wants.

If you can make it interesting or unique, give it a shot!

Hmmm... Tahn, send me an email with your (real) name and I'll check whether it got sent when I went to the US or from Canada.
