Thank you for letting us know about your particular situations.
Hello! I'm also in a similar position as the previous commentators. I'm moving to a new city at the end of the month (Sweden). How likely is it that the package will make it (what is the estimated shipping time)? Is it possible to change the shipping address?
I am in a similar position to the previous two commenters--I will be moving to a new address at the end of the month. Would there be anyway possible to change my shipping address?
I'm moving overseas very soon and I'm very worried that my book won't reach me in time. I didn't change the address back in July because at the time, I thought that it would be shipping relatively soon and I wasn't sure what my new address was going to be. Would it still be possible to change my shipping address at this point?
I was wondering if I can still change my mailing address, because I have just moved and I did not know my new mailing address until it was to late to change it
@ Melissa Hall
We will be posting an update about that this weekend, but the projected shipping time is sometime next week.
Hi! Just wondering if the books have started shipping yet? I was hoping for them to be a father's day gift for my husband, but now that that has passed, I'm still kind of hoping it might make it for his birthday at the end of August. Any chance it'll make it?
@Hiveworks Great. Looking forward to it.
Yes shipping will be starting soon. We had planned on starting in Mid-Late July but It looks like it will be closer to Early August that rewards will start going out.
Now that the preorder event has been over for a couple weeks, should we expect an update that shipping is starting?
For the sake of simplicity and the system we set up for shipping orders we strongly recommend that you stick to only the items in the special pre-order event store.
The books will be mailed out once the pre-order event is over. So, mid-late July.
When will book #2 be mailed out
Hey @Hiveworks I would like to have a question. Would it be possible to order something from the regular Hivemill SSSS store and add it to the package as well? Most of the items are only posters, none of them would necessarily increase the shipping cost, I believe.
@Hiveworks : Thanks a lot for sending new links after I contacted you via Kickstarter!
@Hiveworks thanks for sending new links.
@Rob Crosby, lucky you. @Hiveworks, i contacted you through Kickstarter... Should I try another channel?
Same situation here. I did receive the email but never got to see I had, and now the link doesn't work...
Thanks @Hiveworks for reaching out to me - what great service and interaction with your community! Truly appreciated.
I also missed the KS message so am also interested in whether the download links can be refreshed for a day or two to allow us to grab them
The password was in a different email - I found it so sorry for the question.
I wanted to add on the Kitty plushie to my order but I did not get a password for Hiveworks site. It said that to use the password provided in the kickstarter email but I do not see any password. Help please?
Heeey, how bookprinting is going?
I have just connected today to kickstarter today after several months and noticed the message telling me to download the e-book... But the link is expired. Will it be posted again later, for distracted people like me (and, apparently @Ben Peters) ?
we sent everyone their links to the Ebooks and Wallpapers by Kickstarter message.
@Ben Peters They emailed out download links for the ebooks and digital wallpaper in early May. If you're still waiting, I'd say check your spam folder.
what about the ebooks and digital wallpaper??
I‘m waiting and waiting and... 😳
Reading book 1 now, this is a fantastic book!!! Looking forward to book 2 and wondering if plans for 3 are in the works yet??
So awesome that for an initial Kickstarter goal of $35K, backers raised just over a quarter of a million dollars! Can you tell we love this story? Thank you so much, Minna Sundberg & Hiveworks!
Thanks for the update on the books! :D
Hi Fortzon! Book 1 is being reprinted together with book 2 for this campaign, and it'll definitely return to the store once the books arrive and the ones to backers have been sent out! (I think the old stock unfortunately sold out during Christmas, so my store has been a bit sad and empty this spring.)
Hi Akkitsuitok! The physical books are still at the printers (only the ebooks have been sent out). I don't know if we have a solid arrival estimate yet, but I'll ask and see if we can do an update with that info.
Hi Shadow Stalker! The pages that are sideways in the ebook are part of a spreads that I designed vertically, so they look a bit silly in the ebook but they're really cool in the printed version.
Is Book 1 still possible to buy in the future from your store or is it forever sold out? If it won't return, then could you please remove it from your store page?
Is there any news on when the printed books will be sent out? It's been a while since the last update, and that didn't make mention of it directly. Also I'm interested in an answer to the sideways page as well.
Pages 141-142 are also sideways in book 2, will this have any effect on the printed versions?
@Sara - Page 108 is also sideways. I'd say they're both meant to be double-page spreads, but something's gone slightly awry.
Hi, will the books ship within a month? I will move in June to a new address.
(I live in Helsinki if that matters to the shipping time)
This is the first e-book i have ever purchased, i normally opt for print only so i am probably asking a dumb question, why is page 107 sideways ?
@claire - Backers of Warm Morning Drink ($115) will be getting book 1 as well, it was just an error in the selected message on our end. We'll be sending a follow up message with the book 1 ebook for you this afternoon!
@snerple - Yes, when all the books are shipped out to backers, the books are put up for general sale in the Hiveworks store! We,ll make plenty of announcements about it, don't you worry!
The e-books look awesome! Thanks for sharing this gem over Kickstarter!
Will there be an opportunity to purchase a physical copy of book 1?
Will the book 1 pdf be incoming as well?
@junelle - They are designed to match, the changes are mostly just fixes and different file formats/gutters needed - as they change per publisher. The cover texture, size, page quality is meant to replicate the original book 1.
I just saw that you had to reshape book 1. Does that mean book 2 won’t quite match the existing book 1?
Sweet, cant wait to hear more about it!
@kageve - We are finishing up the book proofs for book 1 & 2 this weekend (we had to re-shape book 1 to fit the new printer's templates), and then they are off to print! We'll be doing a more detailed update when that is done!
Any news on progress? Any little tidbits of information you could share?
So how is it going?
