Update #5 - Bigfoot 200 Book News May 25, 2018

Hello everyone!

I am writing with some exciting news. The Bigfoot 200 book has been picked up by an independent publisher, Koehler Books! We received a two year deal with a second book contract if we reach sales goals. This 2 year contract includes everything from design to production to distribution to over 39,000 bookstores worldwide.

With that, the only drawback is the release date has been pushed back. The publication will be on November 24, 2018. However, you will all receive advance copies about 6 weeks prior to that date and the digital PDF copies will be sent to you in about a week. You will notice that once you get the printed copy, it may look a little different because it will have been professionally edited.

For those of you that purchased shirts and/or my other books, those will be mailed out shortly. I'll be sending each of you a separate email to get sizes.

So that's where we are and we would not be here if it wasn't for all of you. Thank you so much for the support and I'll keep the updates coming.

Ryan

P.S. We'll be holding a "Vote for the Cover" campaign once the artists provide a couple options.
