      Is it time to start worry that the physical book hasn't arrived yet in Sweden?

      Hi pip. Noticed that the audio book for Endgame is on Audible and ITunes now. Are you going to be sending out to those that have backed the level for such? Thanks

      Jay, Got the ebook!
      Now just finishing my current read (Invisible Library) and then: The Ghost Rebellion!

      HI Simona
      We're right in the depths of production, and we want to make sure it's a great product, so I won't be able to commit to a specific date in May. The epub will be super easy to send out, instantly obviously :) The paperback is reliant on postal delivery etc.
      I will say it will be delivered before the general release to the wider public on June 10th.
      Thanks for being as excited as we are...

    6. simona masanta on May 6, 2016

      Hello, I can't wait to read "The ghost rebellion" and since we are in May, can you unveil the date for the epub to be released?
      And maybe even a speculation for the physical copy to arrive?
      Thank you!

    7. Philippa Ballantine Creator on April 9, 2016

      Annette, never fear that was what I recorded and you will be receiving :)

      Are you going to do a more in depth questionnaire? I had to put what I added money for in the 'other' section, as there was no place to put it - so I'm worried you did not count/receive/understand that way. As I bid for 4 printed books - 2 copies of each. (one for me, one for a friend)

    9. Philippa Ballantine Creator on January 23, 2016

      Certainly...I will start doing the ebook deliveries of things we already have next month. Currently we have photoshoots and cover design we are delivering...

    10. CAY on January 23, 2016

      Will we get the tales from the Archives 1-6 epubs before the new books?
      Best regards,

      Thanks. I already have contacted him regarding the RPG. I didn't purchase the anthology back in the original kickstarter. I was just curious.

    12. Philippa Ballantine Creator on December 6, 2015

      I'm not sure on the game side of things, but I shipped 200 copies of the print edition of the Ministry Protocol. You need to contact Brennan Taylor who was actually running the game portion of the Kickstarter if you haven't received something from the game. Anything you have not received from the anthology then please let me know. The Ministry Protocol is available as ebook, print and audiobook versions from Amazon etc.

      Just out of curiosity, a few questions:

      The previous kickstarter you did, how many backers backed the collection of short stories versus the roleplaying game (which we still haven't got the finalized version of one of the stretch goals more than 2 years after the kickstarter ended)? And is that collection of short stories still available in one format or the other?

      Stupid me forgot to write a size for the t-shirt in my answer. How do I add it afterwards?

    15. Paula Olds on November 23, 2015

      Got my survey completed and submitted with no problems at all!

    16. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 23, 2015

      Hey guys, just to let you know, that I am sending out backer surveys, so if you don't get one, please check your junk mail. Since the fulfillment of all the things we funded in going to be finished in May 2017, I have allowed you all to update your address, just in case you move over that period. We're on our way!

      Huzzah and WOOHOO!!!

    19. Jakob Kaine on November 15, 2015

      Backed with what I could. So I will at least get the ebook versions of 5 and 6 ( plus Protocol and Tales ). I would have loved to order the hardcovers of both books. But I just started back to work after three weeks in hospital. A month without paychecks kind of puts a crimp in wants vs needs.

      Glad to see you hit the final stretch goal.

      If everyone adds $1.60 bucks to their pledge, we could push that over.

    24. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 14, 2015

      Hi Sierra
      You did it just great! Thanks for your support!

    25. Sierra Strickland on November 14, 2015

      Updated my pledge (hopefully correctly); hardcover editions of 5 & 6 are a must for me.

    26. Lianne on November 13, 2015

      Just updated my pledge to double so that I get the same rewards (trade, audio, ebook) for operation endgame.

    27. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 13, 2015

      Hi Eric
      You did it perfectly! Thanks for the support!

      Eric Shibuya on November 13, 2015

      Never backed one of these before, so I hope I've done this correctly. I pledged $5 for the Ghost Protocol, then added $30 ($5 for Operation Endgame and $25 for the tee-shirt). Did I get this right?

    29. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 12, 2015

      Hi Robert
      If we hit goal, everyone from the $5 level and up will be getting two ebook editions of Countless Hues of Crimson, in both regular, and decoded formats. However you might want to keep an eye out for the print edition. That will be an add-on for those who really want a physical copy.
      We're pushing onward towards the goal, but it might be a close thing!

      If the $20,000 goal were to be reached near the end of the time, do we need to be on our toes to sign up for the next book before it closes?

    31. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 11, 2015


      Yes, it may be a little sad saying goodbye to Wellington and Eliza...but you never know what other adventures may come along, what other agents have stories to tell.... ;^)

    32. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 11, 2015

      Hello, Amy!

      Yes, we will be making the audiobooks available on Audible. The only items not available after the Kickstarter are the exclusive items such as the hardcover editions of THE GHOST REBELLION and OPERATION: ENDGAME.

      Thanks for the question,


    33. Missing avatar

      Amy Fuller on November 11, 2015

      If we don't pre-order the audiobooks will they be available on Audible for purchase?

    34. Paula Olds on November 9, 2015

      Congratulations! I look forward to reading both Ghost Rebellion and Operation: Endgame! I am a little sad, too, though knowing that the adventures of Books and Braun are coming to an end. It's been a fun adventure so far, though!

    35. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 8, 2015

      Since there seems to be some confusion I have added an explanation to our FAQs about how to work the add-ons for Operation: Endgame. Thanks!

    36. Erinn Phinney on November 8, 2015

      Hi guys!!! How do I add on the other book??

    37. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 8, 2015

      Hi Steph! We're excited too. If you can now just add on whichever you will like. Both trade and hardback come with the ebook included. Scroll down to the point where it says 'Unlocked $15,000' and you should find the information you need!

    38. Missing avatar

      Steph on November 8, 2015

      Hooray! Endgame!!!!!
      What is the best way to add it on so that I get the TP, HB and Audio version?

      I'm so excited!!!

    39. Piper J Drake on November 8, 2015

      Congratulations! So happy for you both and to see Books and Braun's adventures assured!

    40. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 8, 2015

      Hi Robert
      We would love to be able to offer all the audiobooks of the Ministry. Unfortunately right now, we don't have the rights to the audio of the first four books. We can only use Books Five and Six. Thanks for asking though!

    41. Missing avatar

      Robert Clemens on November 8, 2015

      I am partial to audio-books. Any chance of seeing something like the Ministry Dossier in audio format?

      Wish I saw the $750 tier come up :/

    43. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 6, 2015

      Hi Simona
      All the physical awards will be shipped together, and then the paper editions of the books in May. We have already calculated the costs of shipping into the physical awards. Thanks for asking!

    44. simona masanta on November 6, 2015

      Hello, I have some questions about the tee shirts: I pledged for the book, and Kickstarter let me add the shipping costs as well. If I add the tee shirt, I need to add something more for the shipping costs? If so, can I add enough for a signed shipping? Thank you!

    45. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 4, 2015

      Hi Amy, regardless what happens, we will let people know what we're going to do once we have examined the numbers and considered all the options.

      Amy Fuller on November 4, 2015

      If something bad happens, and we don't quite make 15K, can you save the 5K from this kickstand to fund the next one?
      I'm sorry I can't give more, I've stretched as much as I could.

      Hi, I hope that sometime in the future when you have written all the great Ministry stories you have in your heads you will find the time for another Billibub Baddings story.

    48. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 2, 2015

      Good news, Melissa! The audio Add-On is now up and active!

    49. Philippa Ballantine Creator on November 2, 2015

      Hi Melissa
      Yes, indeed we will be putting the audiobook up as an add-on shortly. Look for it in the next few days.
      Thanks for asking!
