Have a question?
Just got the pysical book. Will be interesting to read.
Jay, Got the ebook!
Now just finishing my current read (Invisible Library) and then: The Ghost Rebellion!
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...
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?
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)
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...
Will we get the tales from the Archives 1-6 epubs before the new books?
Thanks. I already have contacted him regarding the RPG. I didn't purchase the anthology back in the original kickstarter. I was just curious.
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?
Got my survey completed and submitted with no problems at all!
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!
Couldn't get it to add tshirt *pout*
Congrats on closing!
Huzzah and WOOHOO!!!
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.
Well done all!
HUZZAH! Eliza & Wellington can break out the bubbly!
Yippee we made it!!!
Be warned, the counter rounds up.
If everyone adds $1.60 bucks to their pledge, we could push that over.
You did it just great! Thanks for your support!
Updated my pledge (hopefully correctly); hardcover editions of 5 & 6 are a must for me.
Just updated my pledge to double so that I get the same rewards (trade, audio, ebook) for operation endgame.
You did it perfectly! Thanks for the support!
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?
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?
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.... ;^)
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,
If we don't pre-order the audiobooks will they be available on Audible for purchase?
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!
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!
Hi guys!!! How do I add on the other book??
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!
What is the best way to add it on so that I get the TP, HB and Audio version?
I'm so excited!!!
Congratulations! So happy for you both and to see Books and Braun's adventures assured!
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!
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 :/
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!
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!
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.
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.
Good news, Melissa! The audio Add-On is now up and active!
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!
So I currently have the tier with the Archives volumes because I need those (need) but I'd really like to get the audio book too. Is the audio available as an add-on?
Thanks for the update Pip
