If everything's working right, you've already received an email from wordpress@sarahavery.com at whatever email address you entered in the Kickstarter backer survey. Today's message prompts you to set your password on http://sarahavery.com/. When you do login, you should be automatically redirected to http://sarahavery.com/the-imlen-brat/. Then you should be able to download your files.

If you haven't replied to the survey with your address, I think you can still do that. If that or anything else is troublesome, message me and we'll figure it out.

Meanwhile, the trade paperbacks of The Imlen Brat are all in their parcels, addressed and ready for tomorrow morning's run to the post office. Backers who have copies coming to them of Tales from Rugosa Coven and Trafficking in Magic/Magicking in Traffic will be getting those in a week or so, I hope.

The printer I had lined up for the art prints is not up for the task -- it turns out the term "fine giclee print" can mean a lot of things, and some of them are not up to snuff. So that's still in progress. I think I've got the right printer for the job now. In every instance but one (about which more in a moment), when I've had to choose between quality and schedule, quality and budget, quality and anything else, I've chosen quality.

Here's the first and only exception, and it may be temporary: In its original high-bandwidth glory, the audiobook file was a pain to download in all our tests. The file version on my website is compressed for ease of download. I'm advised that nobody will be able to tell the difference by ear. If that turns out to be the case, yay. If your experience is otherwise, message me, and we'll try something else.

Thank you all for your patience and support. Enjoy!

      Sarah, I haven't been able to get the link you sent for login confirmation working either. Your server is throwing a misconfiguration error when I try.

      I recommend that as a plan B, you simply make a password-protected page or post on your site, and share that password only with Kickstarter backers.

      Alternately, if you have Dropbox or an account on a similar cloud-based flle service, you could use that as a means to deliver the files as well without needing folks to set up a login on your site.

      I didn't get to it until today and it's not working for me.

      I'm the husband who downsampled - the audiobook came in 128k sampling, and I downsampled it to 32k.
