Phileas Reid Was a Huge Success at MegaCon 2016!

Marc here your favorite Phileas Reid artist, MegaCon 2016 was held this past weekend in Orlando, FL and Phileas Reid Knows We're Not Alone made it's convention debut with a huge splash by nearly selling out. Seriously, we came home with only three books. Now Kickstarter backers may be wondering where their books are and just why in the heck were they on sale at the con before theirs shipped. Well those are both great questions and please let me tell you how this happened. First off, the full shipment of Kickstarter backed books are at the moment in the US and are making their way to Scott as we speak. We are looking for the books to arrive this week (week of May 31st) and they will be mailed out promptly. We are hoping for the book to be in every backer's hands in the next 1 - 3 three weeks. I can't believe I just typed that sentence. 

Now, as far at the books being at MegaCon first, our partners at Kraken Printing were made aware that we would be attending MegaCon on May 26th and kindly held back only one box of books at their printing facility in Taiwan and did not ship them with the full order. The box of 20 books was mailed directly from Taiwan to my hotel room in Orlando and thankfully arrived the night before MegaCon. Thanks to our printing partners and spot on delivery, we were able to offer a small amount of books to the attendees of MegaCon. But don't worry, as I said above, the books will literally be arriving any day now and shipping will commence immediately. The long wait is almost over and our 2 and 1/2 years of hard work and your patience and support will finally be in your hands to enjoy. Until then, please check out some pics of the people that were able to pickup our book at MegaCon this weekend. Oh and how could I forget? My wife and I got to meet nerd king Kevin Smith on Saturday night and I was able to give him an autographed copy of Phileas Reid Knows We're Not Alone along with my email so I'm hoping to hear from him soon. Finger's crossed. He said "You're artwork is killer." So take that as our first celebrity endorsement. Now if only I could use that as a quote for the back of the book ...
