The Secretary Book

the-secretary-book

After months and months of delays, the printed version of Secretary is finally approaching. This is the version to have, whether or not you liked the web-based version. This special edition will be printed on high-quality paper and sold only as a complete set for $105. As usual, the set will come with a free postcard sketch. Each set will also be numbered. There will only be 30 sets available.

There was a regular edition planned, but it has been delayed indefinitely. Should it become available in the future, I’ll let everyone know.

I hope everyone is enjoying the manic Wild Style. It won’t last much longer. I’m looking forward to the next arc. In the meantime, I’ve also been compiling extra content for a Wild Style book, which should be a much simpler (and quicker) affair than the Secretary book. This will be the first NofNA book to fund itself via pre-orders. The quota for funding should be small–around $300 for success–so I am looking forward to a little of your help. Look for that Kickstarter campaign to appear sometime in September.

Until then, keep cool. At least, if you’re in the northern hemisphere…!

    I kind of worry that the whole stock will be bought out the first day it hits the store..

  2. Ava Says:

    God, if I could I’d just throw the $105 at you right now to secure my copies… I’m gonna be watching your site like a hawk for when these come out!

  3. Stephanie Says:

    Time to start digging for change in the couch… any idea when you’ll start taking orders for these?

  4. Zack Says:

    Now that it’s August, these should be on sale within the month.

    Just in time for payday! :D

  6. Corvidophile Says:

    O-ONLY 30? Will there be another run if it’s wildly (whoops) successful? Why 30, too much money to print a larger stock?

    I fully support the idea of funding through pre-order! It works very well for plastic figures of peoples fan characters that otherwise nobody would buy. For something like this, especially since your fans tend to be older than those, I’d imagine you could print out a larger number very easily. I don’t know of any independent services that would hold up people’s credit cards/PayPal accounts long enough if you’re still on the step of deciding how many to have printed, though. You could always charge them yourself and swear up down and sideways that it all comes back should the printing fall through, but I doubt you’d have enough people trusting you.

    I LOOK FORWARD TO THIS, BUT I THINK I WON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY IT. :’(

  7. Zack Says:

    Don’t worry. Should they sell out, I will eventually offer up another batch for preorder.

  8. Morgan Says:

    My biggest worry is how anything purchased on this site has to me paid via paypal, and I’m afraid they’re going to sell out the night they’re released. Although sites like etsy will allow paypal to do an instant-transfer from my bank account, I don’t think this site does. This bothers me… will I have to hold $120 in my paypal anxiously awaiting the release? @_@

  9. Zack Says:

    I’ve double-checked my preferences and have found a button that had instant transfers disabled. I switched it on. Now I should have the ability to accept instant transfers through PayPal. However, should I be in error, it might be prudent to keep about $110 in your PayPal account.

    Yay!
    Should I check nofna store every night then to try to beat the crowd at buying? I know you said you’d release Secretary sometime in August (at least I think that’s what I read somewhere).. but will you announce the date prior, of just RELEASE and watch the rat race ensue?

  11. Zack Says:

    I think it would be more polite to give everyone a chance and announce the release date prior to release. ;) Currently, the proofs are approved, and my order is in, so it shouldn’t be long now.

  12. Morgan Says:

    yay! ok!

  13. Kaa Says:

    Hey Zack, the covers look great. :)

    Just one thing: You put on your store how much the shipping costs according to the weight of what you order - but there’s no way of knowing how much one book weights.
    (Some other online stores also seem to have this problem as well o_o)

  14. Zack Says:

    Hi Kaa,

    For the Secretary book, the shipping price is fixed at:
    US = $5
    Canada = $10
    International = $16

    For the other books, there’s a small paragraph at the bottom that tells how much each book weighs.
