Have a question?
Scott Drummond: Yeah, what Sonia said. Dropbox isn't supposed to be that complicated to download from. I use it for dealing with the open call submissions so that the editors can all read and talk about them in one spot, so it makes sense to use it to distribute the ebooks. I used to email them individually, but there are too many backers for that now. I'm sorry it was such a hassle to get the ebooks. You can ask for me to send them to you by email instead.
@Scott -- AFAIK you can just use a Dropbox download link someone sends you, no need to sign in; I send links to others so they can d/l assorted family files & they've never complained.
But I could be wrong!
Thanks Sonia - Too late (grin). I'd still strongly prefer a download website or emailed copy.
@Scott -- you don't have to install something to d/l from Dropbox. Just go to your DB on the web site and there's a d/l option. All you need to do is set up a (free) DB account.
What I did with these books was -- when the link opens, choose to add the files to my DB, then go to the web-site/folder where the files are, and d/l from there.
This will, of course, not sync anything between your computer and DB, but it is an easy way to just d/l what you want. DB is a common way for people to distribute files.
Hi Joshua, I just went through the rigmarole of installing and using Dropbox to download the mobi files for this and the other two projects - please consider in the future - just give us a download site or email it to us. Dropbox was too much for just picking up the ebooks. Thanks.
I just realized I haven't seen any of the updates, though my wife has been getting them. She backed the paper books, I just did the e-books.
Ronnie J Darling: The link I sent yesterday was for those who received Early Backer or High Backer rewards. You were not in either of those groups. However, I just sent the Stretch Goal reward link to everyone, so you should have a link for that ebook now.
I haven't ;received any emails with the dropbox links, please advise?
Joshua Palmatier: Cool. Coolcoolcool.
David Hill: We're waiting for all of the money issues to be resolved and the money transferred to the ZNB account. Once that's happened, I'll pass backer contact info on to the authors involved in the tuckerization and they should be in touch to finalize those details.
For the tuckerization reward levels, is there any information on how/when contact will be made to discuss that particular aspect of the Kickstarter reward tier?
Love my ZNB anthologies!! Thanks!
Yay! Congratulations and Salutations!
Lily: I've been doing the happy dance since last night!
Time for the fully-funded happy dance! Yay!
I didn't know Patricia Bray was a goat lover. I used to raise goats. Guess who jumped at grabbing all the books and a signed goat by her? Woo Hoo. Love the new rewards.
Belisarius: That's actually one of the things I'm going to announce in the next day or so--some new reward levels and wallpaper of that image as an add-on.
Hi, i would be happy to add a few dollars for wallpaper version of that banner image above (a 1920x1080 version). Looking forward to the anthology.
Kai: That's great to hear! And yes, we will be doing open calls for all three anthologies if they fund. We're edging closer to that goal!
Your previous alien artifacts anthology Kickstarter campaign has been a huge inspiration for me. Also, I'm looking forward to the open call :)
ianquest: I'll try to work up a wallpaper as an early backer incentive between $12.5K and $20K. Will have to see about design and talk with the artist first of course.
@Joshua Granted, those were packs of wallpapers & concept art (the ones that had it as paid add-ons were boardgame projects), not a single wallpaper - but if you included the various artworks that will be sold as prints, if the artist's willing, backers would likely be more willing than for a single image.
ianquest: Hmm, that's a possibility. People are willing to do $5 for a wallpaper add-on? I'd think that was a little high. I'll see if I can get it worked out, maybe introduce this as an option next week.
@Joshua: Some Kickstarter's I've backed made the art/wallpapers into a stretch goal, others into a (for example) $5 add-on, and the like. With a suitably classy & discreet logo in one bottom corner (so people aren't tempted to try & erase it to get the art back) & the artist's name in the other, it will also continue to advertise for you & the artist. :)
Looks like we've blown through 3 goals in under 24 hours:
Wow. Amazing start. We just have to keep the buzz going.
ianquest: Hmm ... haven't considered doing the art as digital files. Maybe we can do that as a stretch goal? I do have the art available as a print as an add-on. Let me think about it. (Also need to consult with the artist and look at the contract to see if I even have the rights to the digital files.)
Woke up here in Australia & discovered the project launched in the early hours of the morning... :( Anyway, pledged for all the ebooks like I usually do for your projects, and looking forward to reading them when they're done!
One question I've been wanting to ask is whether the art will be made available as digital files? I'd dearly love to have 'Submerged' as a wallpaper for my desktop, especially when I'm loading up the computer game 'Subnautica'... :D
Tasha: Great to have you return for another of our little projects. Thanks!
Bissmire: Yes, you are in the first 20 backers pledging more than $100!
Thrilled to back more wonderful anthologies.
Hi, Just wanted to check if I made into the first 20 backers backing more than $100?
