So glad you enjoyed them, and that they arrived on time!!! :)
Received all of the books just before christmas, and they're amazing! So glad I backed this project :D
Yes! We've been hustling to get all of the physical books into the mail over the past couple weeks, so with that mostly taken care of, the remaining PDFs will be going out within the next week or two. :)
Any estimate on the digital delivery of issues 1-6 ?
That's such a beautiful connection! Your strength is so inspiring, and we're so humbled to have helped in some way. We're passing this along to Ashanti to make sure she sees your comment. :)
'A Normal Life' by Ashanti Fortson struck a very real chord with me as I also live with a chronic debilitating illness that doesn't have a cure. I used to write, but somehow that ended up being forgotten as I somehow allowed the illness to steal away my hopes and dreams. I now find it difficult to write due to brain fogginess and my other symptoms, BUT perhaps it's time for me to stop giving up and do it anyway even if it does take me longer and it's sometimes difficult to get the keyboard to obey me. Thank you for Dirty Diamonds #7, I must go back and read the previous ones again as they always help to inspire me and stop me feeling like a helpless invalid.
Please check your emails for the most recent update!
It's two weeks after the last update, still no PDF? It wouldn't be so annoying if I hadn't seen the books at SPX.
We apologize for the delay, but PDFs are in the works and will be sent out to everyone within the next week. We'll be sending an update out soon with the link!
Any news on the pdfs? Please let me know. Thanks!
We're planning to get the PDFs out by the end of the month, and we're on target to send the books out in October and November! It's all coming together. :)
Hi! Just wanted to check - when am I likely to receive the books? And the PDFs? Keep up the good work!
Thanks for reaching out, we can help clarify. The reward survey asked specifically about *bonus* rewards in the question you're referring to. You will still receive the rewards for your $20 pledge - PDFs of the Dirty Diamonds catalogue. The bonuses are for additional pledges that backers had the option to contribute by increasing their initial pledge (for example, adding $10 to their $20 pledge to receive extra rewards). We will also follow up with a message to help make sure this is clear, but always feel free to reach out to us with a message or via email if you have questions.
Hi - I just did the survey.
Confusion - frustration. The only choices were to increase your donation or have no reward. I said no reward but want the reward for my initial $20 donation. This felt too tricky and left negative marketing impact on me without knowing if I will ever see your work. Katie Orcutt recommended that I do this with you. Di Strachan
