    Instead of going one by one! To address all the folks talking about Suntups update page:

    The thing is gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful. I love it. At this stage it wouldn't be too applicable to our products, because most of our outstanding projects wouldn't really sit on... well... any of those stages they listed. Part of the issue has been putting up preorders too early in production, in my opinion, when there are far too many variables and things that can go wrong. Very, very wrong in some situations. Looking at Suntup's pages, once we get to the stages they mention, then it's fairly smooth sailing. Our issues come prior to printing, and by the time it arrives, we turn around and ship the products fast. Which is also why we've put a hold out on announcing things lately, until we're better caught up (Although I will say, I have hopes for the Limited line still pushing occasional new projects, so long as they were sold after the gigantic chasm of things-that-can-go-wrong has passed by, as a way of keeping the progress steady).

      I have to agree on the updates page. Many of those updates have been there for a long time, years even, and without dates they're meaningless. It would be nice to know what's really going on.

      Just look at the Suntup update page to see exactly how it should be done: https://suntup.press/status-updates/
      To you and Martin:

      I brought these ideas to the website guy! A "last updated" for each entry would definitely be helpful to keep it relevant. Would make it a lot more useful to all parties involved

        ​​​​​​​If so I am in the same boat, I think I read that one of the books was Suffer the Children and then I haven't seen anything since. Please do let me know if these did indeed go out because I am missing some books if that's the case.
        I will have to ask around regarding that one! I know the ARCs for Suffer the Children are in, but the books have not yet been produced

                None that are too useful! It has finished proofing and we are looking to print the entirety of the Fall Grab Bag 2018 (...) all at once, but we have not currently sent the items to the printers. We have a whole list of tweaks for the update page, I will flag this information as needing to be updated when I review whatever is put together
