I'm so happy to finally announce our pre-orders!
Flowing Stars started as a project to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the saga, although after some problems and a long hiatus, it's now the 21st anniversary instead! Nevertheless, we are now ready to offer it to you all, at long last! It will be sold almost exclusively by pre-order and you have until February 6th 2017 to get it. It costs 6 euros (about 6 US dollars) without shipping. Please read all the info if you are interested! (P.D.: we just noticed we need to change the promo pictures to say "21st anniv." instead of "21th" but it will be corrected in the book for sure, don't worry!)
If you wish to help us promote this project, here you have posts to share on Tumblr Twitter
Hello, this is CarmenMCS!
I'm one of the participating artists and the admin in charge of answering questions, managing pre-orders, etc. You can talk to me on Tumblr / Twitter too, but please contact me through my e-mail when you are ready to pre-order! I might not be fast at replying, in special if we receive many pre-orders or questions in a short time. Sorry for the incovenience, please be patient! Thanks!
See the full list of artists and their websites following this link -> (*still creating link*)
Over 40 artists from 15 different countries joined forces to bring you more than 70 illustrations in this book! The benefits will go to sending the book for free to as many of the participants as possible (we already agreed on which artists will have priority and why).
First of all, know that you need paypal to make the transaction -unless you have a bank account in Spain-. If you do, then contact me, CarmenMCS, on my e-mail (find it in the pictures) and tell me:
------------- 1) What items you want (keychains have a much shorter pre-ordering deadline than the other items! Go to the last section "SPECIAL PACKS" for more details)
------------- 2) Your full name, full address with CP and country and if you prefer the standard or certified mail option;
------------- 3) Include YOUR OWN paypal address so I can send you an invoice. You don't need to pay the invoice until you are sure you understand everything, so ask any questions you have before paying (pay before February 6th though!)
- In the "shipping price" I already include paypal fees, cost of bubble wrapped envelope and all those little extra expenses. To calculate your total sum, just add the shipping price to the cost of the book, keychains and/or badges you want.
- The prices listed here are only for packages weighting between 100gr-500gr. Shipping cost of anything within that range is always the same, and the package can contain in total: 1 copy of the book (around 360gr), a couple of keychains (25-35gr each) and some badges (5gr each). For bigger packages, discuss it with me (e-mail is in the images)
*** SHIPPING TO EUROPE (Zone 1 except Spain) ***
- Standard mail 8.30 € + price of the book/pack
- Certified mail 11.15 € + price of the book/pack
*** ALL OTHER COUNTRIES ***
- Standard mail 11.85 € + price of the book/pack
- Certified mail 14,70 € + price of the book/pack
*** SHIPPING WITHIN SPAIN (+ Canarias + Andorra) ***
- Standard mail 4.10 € (if you pay with paypal) + price of the book/pack
- Certified mail 6.60 € (if you pay with paypal) + price of the book/pack
* If you're attending Japan Weekend of Barcelona, Suikoden Day in Barcelona, etc. you can get the book at the con, so you don't need to pay the shipping or other fees! YOU STILL NEED TO PRE-ORDER though, so let me know!
* If you have a Spanish bank account, it's probably cheaper than paypal! Or even free of any charges!
I'm also selling keychains and badges in a pack with the book. I felt really bad about the expensive shipping cost, so I at least wanted to offer you the possibility of "filling up" that 500gr package (the book itself is only around 340gr) with some of my fanmade merchandise.
The deadline to pre-order keychains is shorter than if you just want the book alone or with badges. You only have until January 8th 2017 for the packs including keychains (February 6th 2017 for the rest).
PRICES & STIMATED WEIGHT OF THE INDIVIDUAL ITEMS & THE PACKS:
- 1 Book + 1 Keychain + 2 Badges = 12€ + SHIPPING / 400gr
- 1 Book + 2 Keychain + 3 Badges = 17€ + SHIPPING / 450gr
- 1 Book + 2 Keychain + 6 Badges = 19€ + SHIPPING / 495gr (with random Suikoden gift too)
- Only book = 6€ + SHIPPING / 365gr
- Only 1 Keychain = 5€ + SHIPPING / 25-36gr
- 2 Keychains = 9€ + SHIPPING / 50-72gr
- 6 Badges = 5€ + SHIPPING /55gr
*** If you only order keychains and/or badges without book, the price for 0-50gr and 50-100gr packages range from 2.57€ to 7.95€ depending on country, total weight and if you prefer ordinary or certified mail.
