Cheetahpaws calendar, COVID-19 shipping updates

Cheetahpaws After Hours 2020/21 Calendar

After some delays, I’m very happy to report that we have received our print run of the new Cheetahpaws calendar, and at this time all calendars pre-orders have been shipped!

The calendar runs from May 2020 to June 2021 and includes a centerfold. Now that pre-orders have been fulfilled, we will be filling new orders as they come and orders to distributors.

COVID-19 and shipping update

As some of you may know, we utilize a print-on-demand company to produce our books and comics. This allows us to publish a broad variety of works without needing a minimum number of copies to be printed. However, this means we don’t keep more than a few copies of any one item on hand at our own storage facility, and we frequently place stock orders with our printer or have our printer ship directly to a customer’s location. The only products we have on hand in bulk are the Cheetahpaws calendars.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our printer’s estimated production times have recently gotten longer, and they have already revised this time-frame twice. This means that depending on the items being ordered, there may be a delay in us being able to fill the order.

We normally strive to get orders shipped within two weeks of being placed, but depending on what stock we have on hand and our printer’s situation we may need longer to fulfill your order.

We encourage customers to keep ordering from us and other small businesses in the fandom during this time even if there is a delay in shipping. We do not have sales from conventions while this situation is on-going so we really need your support via online sales on FurPlanet.com and BadDogBooks.com, for eBooks, so we can keep paying our authors and artists royalties.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

Update on the 2020 Cheetahpaws After Hours Calendar

Update 03/31/2020

Cheetahpaws is close to completing the art and layout.

Once we have the final files, it will take less than a week for our printer to produce the calendars.

The finished calendar will run from April 2020 to May 2021, 13 months.


Late in December, Cheetahpaws had another round of eye surgery to help correct an ongoing issue he’s been having. It took him longer to recover than normal, and so the calendar artwork is still in production.

Because of that delay, we will be making the calendar run from February 2020 to January 2021 so you won’t miss out. (Just like we did with the 2015 Beach calendar.)

And we’re gonna include something extra with the pre-orders, a stand alone print that will be very After Dark.

We are also shipping out any orders that included calendars, and will send the calendar separately once we have them in our paws.

If you would like to pre-order one, here is the link: https://furplanet.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=1082

Thank you for patience and understanding.

Website outage update

Our host’s latest update is that our server is back online, but the associated database server is still undergoing recovery and repair. Hopefully this means we won’t be offline too much longer.

We’ll have to check the site to make sure all the data is there, but we have daily backups with the last one being completed 3am the day before the outage. We’ll update again as soon as we have more info.

“The Time He Desires” ACLU Donation Made!

kyell:

Hey guys! Remember how FurPlanet and I decided to donate proceeds from sales of “The Time He Desires” to the ACLU to help fight gross stuff like the Muslim ban and lots of other terrible threats happening in the country? We got the sales receipts together and they totaled very nearly a thousand dollars! So Fuzzwolf rounded up and today we were absolutely thrilled to send a $1,000 donation to the ACLU.

Thank you, everyone who bought a book or who spread the word about it. Thanks to all of you donating independently to the ACLU or any other group fighting to keep our country free and equal. This is a nice gesture but the fight keeps going.

We’re super proud to have been a part of publishing this book, and to raising money for a good cause.

Tower and the Fox at AC! (also ROAR 8)

kyell:

If you are heading to AnthroCon this weekend, have a great time! You will not see me there, but you can purchase my newest novel, The Tower and the Fox, with Laura Garabedian’s lovely artwork (she will also be at AC; go say hi to her and get her to sign your book!) from the FurPlanet table. And while you’re there, check out ROAR 8, which has a story of mine in it (“Personal History”) that I’m quite proud of, which is in fact the story illustrated on the cover by BlackTeagan.

If you’re NOT heading to AnthroCon, you can still get in on the book action. The link above goes to FurPlanet; you can also pre-order it RIGHT NOW on Amazon. Regardless of where you get it, leaving a review on Amazon is super helpful, especially to this first-in-a-series book under a different name. The more notice it gets, the more we’ll be able to build on that for the next one.

Thank you guys for checking the books out, and have a great AC! I’ll make it back one of these years.

Coming Soon: The Time He Desires by Kyell Gold

After thirty years, Aziz’s marriage now consists mostly of arguing about whether to sell their store to a developer. His wife has a social life, interests and plans for the future, but the pawnshop is Aziz’s connection to his community. And then one day a desperate fox rushes into the shop looking for the honeymoon tape his husband sold. Seizing on this chance to make a difference, the cheetah steps up to help save their crumbling marriage. A gay couple might not show him the way to a new life, but he’s running out of ways to save his old one.

The Time He Desires by Kyell Gold, with illustrations by Kamui.

Coming this December from FurPlanet Productions!
