Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! When your pledge goes through, Amazon doesn't actually send me your physical mailing address. They just send me your email address so I can ASK you (in a Kickstarter survey) for your mailing address. And I wasn't planning on sending that survey out until just before the books are ready to ship, just for that reason, to make sure all the books got sent to the most current address.
So! Please make sure you keep your EMAIL ADDRESS on Kickstarter current. But so long as you do that, if you pledge now, the books should get to you just fine in October. :DLast updated:
I'm located outside the U.S., I don't have a credit card and Amazon Payments isn't letting me use my bank account. Help!
I've gotten a few emails from backers about this. I wrote to Kickstarter Support and, while I know this won't work for everyone, this is what they suggested:
Thanks for writing in. If your backers have a debit card, any debit card with a major credit card company logo on it should also work! If they don't have either, they can purchase prepaid credit card gift cards.
Please note you need to make sure the gift card has at least $1 more on it than the amount of the pledge. Amazon sometimes does a $1 ping authorization that does not clear in time for the transaction not to fail when they go to collect the full amount.
Example: You have a $25 gift card and you pledge $25 to a project. Right before collecting the funds, Amazon does a $1 ping. Temporarily, you only have $24 on the card. Then, they try to collect the $25 dollar pledge, but it gets declined because the card only has $24 on it and the $1 does not get released quickly enough.
Alex here again. I'll do my best to keep looking into this and if I find out anything more, I'll post it here!Last updated:
Sure! There are a very limited number of books available signed by BOTH me and Winona so I can't make those "additional books", but I'm happy to make available additional unsigned books and books signed just by me.
First choose the reward that includes the amount of books signed by BOTH me and Winona that you'd like (if want any of those) and then add $20 for each additional unsigned book you'd like and $25 for each additional book signed by just me you'd like.
So, let's say you wanted two books signed by both me and Winona and then 3 additional unsigned books to give to friends, etc. You'd pledge $120 ($60 for the Kickstarter "TWO copies of the book signed by both Alex and Winona" reward and then $20 x 3 for the additional books.)
If you're in the U.S., shipping is free. For international orders, please add $4 to Canada and $8 to other countries for each additional book you're ordering.
One very important thing: Kickstarter doesn't offer a way to let me know you pledged for additional books when you make your payment, so please send me a message after you make your pledge and I'll make a note of it next to your name. I'll make sure you get them. :DLast updated:
I just wanted to check whether the name appearing in the 'thank you' section of the book will be my Kickstarter account name, as opposed to the name on the credit card I used at Amazon. Is that right?
If I understand correctly, just like Amazon doesn't send me any mailing address information, I don't think they send me anything at all from your payment details, including what name is on your credit card. I think all I get is your Kickstarter name and your email address so I can ask for any other details (like your shipping address) if needed.
Regardless, I'll actually be asking folks exactly how they want to be credited in a Kickstarter survey I send out before printing. So, at that point, you'll get to decide how you'd like to be credited.Last updated:
Absolutely. I'll include that as an option in the survey I send out before shipping. $100+ backers get physical art prints sent to them. If you'd like one or more of your art print awards signed by Winona, just let me know when I send you the survey. :)Last updated:
