For those who pre-ordered copies of 1000 Words, I'm deeply sorry that your order has not arrived yet. It has been an extremely stressful week for me to finally receive the shipment from the printers at Active Media Publishing www.activemediapublishing.com/
after such a long delay which cost us to miss Fanime, only to find out that the books were far below the expected quality.
Not only did the colors come out neon yellow and even green in some parts, there were large ink smudges on 50% of the books, while another 50% had uneven spines.
This is how the books came out. Neon yellow.
Note: colors may vary depending on your monitor screen so it may not look too bad on certain computers, but it looks bad in real life.
And then there are smudges that you can find on the right side of every other book. The scanner actually made the smudges less obvious, but again, it looks very bad in real life.
Finally, half of the books had varying degrees of uneven printing on the spines that is symmetrical at the bottom but veers to the right at the top.
These low quality products are absolutely unacceptable which is why we are reprinting everything until it's done right. Unfortunately that it means it will take at least another month before the pre-orders can be shipped out. As compensation for the unexpected long wait, we will include a free special 2 button set and a special bookmark for 1000 Words that will only be given to those who pre-ordered it and have been affected by this delay. Please accept this as our apology and gratitude for your patience.
