Have a question?
The book looks great! Any word on when Book Two goes into print? Will it be a Kickstarter project?
Got my book on Saturday! It's beautiful <3
The book arrived on Friday. Very well put together, even the stickers.
I just received my book and I absolutely ADORE it. It's so wonderful!!
Just got my book! It's absolutely beautiful. I love the stickers. I don't think I will ever un-peel them because they are so pretty! Thanks so much Nicole!
Book arrived yesterday. Nice quality all round. Now I just need to find the time to read it :-)
Received my book today. :) Flipped through the pages real quick and everything looks amazing so far. I'm impressed with the quality of the book. The hardback is awesome, pictures look great, and I love the stickers.
I've back a few different kickstarters, but I will admit I am most impressed with the quality of this one. You had a great printing company and the hardback really makes a difference. So much better than the paperback versions.
I'll definitely be back to get book two in the future.
Hi, just wondering if there were any updates on shipping status. I haven't received my book yet.
Got mine last week! Looking forward to read it! :)
Hmmm, welp, hope mine arrives soon, for I am really looking forward to it!!
Got my book today! Looks great! Thanks!
This Texan just got his, everything looks hunky dory on my end
Just wanted to check on shipping status, I haven’t yet received my copy.
Hello! I also wanted to check the status on shipping. Thanks!
Just got the book today. It looks amazing and the stickers are great!
Just curious on the status of shipping. Looking forward to my hardcover. Hope all is well. Thanks.
My package arrived, which is super great, and the stickers are beautiful! Thanks!
Unfortunately, the package was water-damaged. Some of the pages are stained, warped and stuck together. It's not illegible, but would it be possible to replace it?
Canada Post said the Sender and not the Receiver had to contact them.
My copy arrived today! Thank you so much! :)
I never received the PDF :'(
Have the books been shipped yet? I still have not received my copy.
Wow. I had no idea how hard "pick a character" would be. I managed to narrow it to two at least.
Last time I just said, "being a guy, maybe a female sketch?" Given how Kit and Larina reacted to Sid at the time, I was fully expecting to receive a sketch of Keres with a last-thing-you-will-see-in-this-life look on her face. I like what you sent much more.
I have the pdf and I love it. Great work keep on writing/drawing Nicole <3
Hello? Any updates?
If you have sent files to print, did you get proofs? Did they look ok?
If the did look ok, when will us digital backers get a link to obtain the comic?
Just want to say, can't wait to read the book. But please take the time you need, I asume April ist no longer target date for the pdf version.
If it's not too late, just Thomas is fine.
On the thanks page, please, write "Ruslan Moiseev" instead of just "Ruslan".
If is not yet too late, ofcourse. In that case "Ruslan" is OK.
On the thanks page, I'd appreciate it if you could use my middle initial. Scott M Smith. It may be petty but, Smith. There's a lot of us.
Is there a way to up my pledge to a book in place of pdf file?
So excited! WOOOooo...!!!
Yeeeeesss Fey winds book, hi from Mexico by the way
So who do you see voicing Kit in the animated series?
@Shadowclad - Unfortunately no. I won't be distributing the KS books other than by mail. I'll have copies at the conventions I go to this year (TCAF, VanCAF, Fan Expo), but they won't come with any of the extras from the campaign. :)
@John Flood - Well, there's a little over a day left and we just cleared the last of the initial stretch goals... so I'll see what I can do! ;)
@William Snow - Thanks!! I'm really glad you like it!!
Wish there was a way to avoid shipping fees or I'd have backed the hardcover. No way to drive to Canada to pick it up? I cross the border pretty often! XD
OK, I WAS waiting for a POUTINE stretch goal, but time was running out.
Whilst browsing Kickstarter, the cover art caught my eye. From there I started reading the comic and it is awesome! Can't wait to have a physical copy :D
Yay!! Thanks! :D
Found this by chance, and looked into it a bit. Really liked the comic, and looking forward to getting a hardcover copy of this!
Woo! Bookmarks! :D
@Amnon - I understand your worries, and I absolutely share them! I've also backed a few books that ran years late, but I'm confident this won't be the case for mine. I know roughly how long doing the bookplates and original art will take, the files for the whole comic will be print ready before the end of the campaign, and even if the next 2 stretch goals are unlocked, I know how long they'll take to make and how much they'll cost to produce. It's always possible that there could be an unforseen delay (a problem with shipping or printing or something outside of my control, etc) but it won't be because of the rewards. :)
@Kris Thank you!! Unfortunately, I won't be at the Calgary Expo this year. Artist's alley is sold out, and around the time of the expo I'll probably (hopefully) be knee-deep in books and bookplates! <3 I can't promise anything for next year since I'll be back at my day job, but I'll see if I can make it out there in the future! :D
@Brian - Thanks! Just don't show it to any of my animation professors, they might drag me back to the classroom! ;)
Please be careful with the pledges. I've participated in several book-kickstarter projects and the authors always underestimate the effort (time) and money required. I have to say I'm getting the same impression here. Personally I care far more about the time-table (one project was completed with a 4 year delay !) than about these extras.
Nicole, as a fellow Canadian and fan for years, congratulations and I'm excited to see the completed book. Hopefully you make it to the Calgary Expo so that I can say hi to you this year!
You didn't mention getting an email with an animated avatar as an extra :P
@Andrew C - Thanks!! They're FSC certified dead trees at least! ;)
@Xavon - Yeah! 95% of the way there! :D
@Joshua M - I think if you go to "Follow Creators" in your "my stuff" menu, you can follow me and get an automatic notification when I launch a new campaign. (Book 2 won't be for another year or two though!) Thank you so much for the support!! :D
Will there be a way for the backers to receive some way to be updated/informed when you will be launching the second set for this comic? Sometimes it is a little tricky to stay up to date on what is going on and I would hate to miss out on getting the full comic in a physical form.
Thanks on answering this question whenever you get the time.
Only 2K (give or take) to go!
Confirmed I will have funds, so I'm upgrading to the dead tree.
@Kenneth - Thank you so much!! And as for the shipping, I know that feeling all too well! Ordering things from smaller stores in the States is always a bit of a surprise for me! XD
@wyrdness - Aww thanks!! And yeah, this book is definitely going to be on the heavy side! (estimated 1D6 bludgeoning damage) ;)
