Good Chef bad Chef update

I have been communicating with the publisher of Good Chef Bad Chef following some comments here by readers and newsagents.  Here is an update from the publisher:

The response for issues 1 & 2 has been simply amazing. We increased the print run between issue 1 and 2 but again the demand has outstripped supply. We have sent out all the returns already to agents that had back orders BUT we simply ran out very quickly so there are still some orders in the system (with network) that need to be fulfilled.

What does surprise me though is that we still received 17% of early returns (immediately) when issue #2 went out. And over 120 of those were from newsagents that sold 4-7 copies of issue #1. Then on the other hand we are now close to sold out.

Issue 3 is on sale 3rd July – Orders can be made through the Networks Netonline system:

I hope this helps.

    I have a sister in law who works at the NDC contact centre I own a newsageny so I have picked her mind quite a bit.
    She told me you can still get number one if you request to have it shipped from the WA stock house. I will have 5 in with next Thursdays delivery still isn’t enought!!!

    This is what I was told when I phoned NDC on March 26, that there was stock of issue one available. That was 2 weeks ago that I ordered some copies.
    I think the show needs to stop advertising it’s availability in newsagents until we get stock. It’s a shame because we could have sold plenty recently.

    It is good to have a date for issue 3 so we can let these customers know now and offer to hold copies for them.
