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: https://www.netonline.com.au/SeasonalAllocation/ALLX010.aspx
I hope this helps.
