      No tracking for those Errin, they're just in a letter. I did send them, and it says I sent yours. See if it comes sometime this week. If not, I'll see about getting another one to you. It should have arrived by now.

    2. Creator Errin Carner on January 5, 2014

      Lauren, I saw the last update that said that some pictures should be delivered already - including the one that I ordered of Patrick Rothfuss. This was last week, but so far I haven't received anything. Can you tell me if mine shipped? Do you have tracking numbers for anything? Errin Carner

      Lauren, I spoke with Peter. Brandon Signed the photo's on Friday and Laura (Brandon's shipping manager) is sending them to you today. Cheers.
      Mike.

      No worries, I think it's coming back this week. He got them not that long ago, and I'm sure he's a busy guy. I had a trip to Atlanta scheduled in there which also threw things off. I'm anticipating getting them soon, and I'll get them out as soon as I can! :)

    5. Creator Mike Fuller on December 16, 2013

      Thanks Lauren. I'll ask Peter to pester him for me.

    6. Creator Lauren Zurchin on December 9, 2013

      I haven't gotten Brandon's back yet. As soon as I do, I'll get them in the mail! :)

    7. Creator Mike Fuller on December 9, 2013

      Hi Lauren. I was supposed to receive a signed Brandon photo in the mail, but it never arrived :( please advise!

    8. Creator Cailean Babcock on December 3, 2013

      I tried to email about this but got no reply, so I'll post it here in hopes of a response. My question is, why do all the digital desktop pictures have huge, white calendars on them? Can I have them without? The original offer says that we'll get copies of the photographs to use as desktops, which sounds fantastic. There was no indication that they'd be defaced.

      I'd hate to have to go to all the trouble of scanning them in by hand when the calendar arrives,

      Hello I can't wait to get the callender XD I only peaked at two of the photos and am leaving the rest a a surprise ^_^
      I was just wondering when will we get emails asking about the signetures?

    10. Creator Lauren Zurchin on October 9, 2013

      Nick, I just checked, you're good!

    11. Creator Nicholas Jensen on October 9, 2013

      I'm not totally sure my survey was successful, as autocomplete was trying to put in old apartment information. Is there anyway to confirm it perchance? Can't wait to see the finished works!

    12. Creator Lauren Zurchin on September 4, 2013

      Hey Tina! If you don't think it went through you can send me a message with your info and what prize you got and I'll be sure to get it to you. :)

    13. Creator Tina Vee on September 2, 2013

      How do we know if the survey was successful? I had a bunch of problems running it on my phone and now that I'm signing in on my computer, the survey won't pop up.

    14. Creator Lauren Zurchin on April 26, 2013

      I'm under the weather right now, I'll post an update when I can. I need to concentrate on getting better, I am on a strict timeline to get everything done. I'll be in touch, everyone!

    15. Creator Dengar on April 21, 2013

      I'll pretend a week hasn't gone by :)
      I will look forward to seeing that update by the end of this week! And, I don't blame you one bit Lauren for not posting the update yet, I know you are extremely busy :)

    16. Creator Lauren Zurchin on April 15, 2013

      Everything is going well and is on track. I'll be sending a proper update sometime this week!

    17. Creator Dengar on April 12, 2013

      Yes, updates would be great. Shooting was scheduled to start in April, are we running on time? :)

    18. Creator Amanda Gentzel on April 9, 2013

      Any update on the project? Congrats on getting funded, and I can't wait to see the finished product!

    19. Creator Amanda Gentzel on February 27, 2013

      Awesome project - I'm glad I stumbled upon it today! I'm thinking of pledging at the $75 level, for both a signed calendar and signed 8x10 by Brandon Sanderson (my sister's a big Wheel of Time/Mistborn fan and has recently gotten me into Wheel of Time), but I was wondering if it would be possible to split up the personalization. So, get the 8x10 personalized to my sister and the calendar personalized to me.

    20. Creator Mia Urick on February 19, 2013

      This sounds like such a great project! I can't wait to see the finished project and I love supporting local artists. Good luck!

    21. Creator Lauren Zurchin on February 13, 2013

      Hi Jorge. I'll actually be emailing everyone once the project closes and getting info from you then. So You can reiterate this there. Thanks for your support!

    22. Creator Jorge on February 13, 2013

      Hi Lauren! Just backed the project with Sanderson's $75 pack. The photo and the calendar are to be signed and personalized by Brandon, but I'd like it to have it personalized not for me (i.e., my name) but my girlfriend, is that possible? I couldn't find anywhere during the pledge process to specifiy this. She is a big Sanderson fan and has introduced me to his books ^_^u Her name is Elena. Thank you!

    23. Creator Lauren Zurchin on February 10, 2013

      There is a reason for that, but I can't really say, sadly. However, someone further back in the comment feed posted a link. That should answer your question!

    24. Creator Joe Kull on February 10, 2013

      But seriously, why is there no option to just buy the calendar, unsigned, for probably $20-25?

    25. Creator honigmuffin on February 5, 2013

      Cool, thank you! I'll make sure to tell him :) (and to nudge him towards pledging ;)

    26. Creator Lauren Zurchin on February 5, 2013

      Hi! Um, I'm not sure if that's an option, because I think I only get one chance to contact everyone and get their info, which will happen prior to the calendar's release (so I can send pics as soon as I get them taken!) But if he wants to reply to me during that inquiry with also his email, so that I can let him know when the calendar's out and he can look and decide, that might work. So I guess the answer is yes. :)

    27. Creator honigmuffin on February 5, 2013

      This project sounds awesome. :)
      Quick question: A friend considers to pledge for the book level. He'd like to know if he has to choose the "8x10 print of the author photo of your choice" beforehand or if there'll be a possibility to preview the finished pictures to help him decide – he told me he's not sure yet which of the awesome authors to pick ;)

    28. Creator Studio Riki on February 1, 2013

      From one Pittsburgh artist to another, good luck with the calendar! :)

    29. Creator Rowan Tribe on January 30, 2013

      In from Pat's blog. I just backed for him, and got my husband to back for Sanderson. I've got a co-worker who I bet will back for Holly as soon as I tell her about it tomorrow. Awesome idea - can't wait to see how it all unfolds! (also - kudos for the secret info about the ultimate goal - wink wink nudge nudge)

    30. Creator Lauren Zurchin on January 30, 2013

      I think you'd need to do two separate purchases. One for each.

    31. Creator Tiny Hamster on January 30, 2013

      How can I purchase multiple rewards? I would like to have two author photos, Williams and Rothfuss- and I can't see where to do that.

    32. Creator Drew Tannahill on January 29, 2013

      Fantastic project Lauren! Should you be passing through the Baltimore area feel free to contact me for free room & board!

    33. Creator Preston Poland on January 29, 2013

      Why is there no option for just a calendar? No frills, no signatures, just the calendar.
