Tomorrow I finalize the details in regards to how many copies of The Jerx, Volume One will actually be printed, so today is your last day to get your order in or reserve a copy at the current price and with the bonuses. See my June 24th post for details.
I want to thank everyone who has donated to the site in order to receive the book. Your support has allowed me to take a chunk of my time every week that I should be working and devote it to this site instead. I especially want to thank those who were on board that first week—that first day even. When I think of it, it's a huge compliment that there was a not-insignificant number of people who ponied up a not-insignificant amount of money, for something they wouldn't receive for many months to come, by a first-time author, who writes anonymously—especially in the world of magic that's filled with a-holes taking money and then never actually delivering what they claimed. Everyone who likes this site owes the people who stepped-up early on a debt of gratitude because the site wouldn't be here without them.
And it's nice to get a bump in orders in these final weeks too. So don't think I don't appreciate you, you slackers and loafers. You're my people. And that's going to help keep posting fairly regular at least until Fall rolls around.
Also thanks to Jerx: France. I'm not sure what happened but I ended up with a handful of orders from there in the past week or so. I can't imagine reading this site if English isn't your first language. And I'm sure it's a total abortion if it goes through an online translator, so it amazes me that anyone can sift their way through this site in that way.
So, just generally, thanks to everyone who has supported the site via buying the book. I would happily sell-out in a minute if Ellusionist, or whoever, dropped a nickel and it rolled my way. But until that time, I'm happy to keep this baby independent and user supported.
By the way, when I asked how long it would take for the book to be ready I was told "a few weeks after the file has been approved." My hope is that means I should be able to ship the book in August. I think that's a conservative date, but maybe I'm being naive. I will keep everyone who orders updated on that.
For those who are curious about things like this:
About 60% of the book orders came from the U.S.
About 25% of those U.S. orders came from LA.
About 50% of the non-U.S. orders came from England.
One person in China ordered the book. He's literally 1 in a billion.
Nobody in any of the following states ordered the book. (If you're in one of these states and think you did, make sure to email me.)
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
