Have a question?
Just sent my email address for a refund. Would prefer the book but it doesn't sound like it's getting made and the lack of communication with buyers is troubling. Thanks.
If you'd like a refund on this project. Please send me your paypal address and I'll send it ASAP. I'm very sorry.
I messaged you 7 months ago but never received a reply. If the book is not happening, please refund those of us who backed this project almost 4 years ago.
Any new progress with the book?
Can we see pictures of progress of this book? What is going on? Its been over a year since we've seen updates. Show proof of a layout, publisher... Something that this project isn't being forgotten. People need to know if its being done. Most people probably forgot you took our money years ago with no proof its being made. Either refund our money all at once or give us something to show that a book is almost done. We helped invest in your book which basically mean we're your boss. Right now you are not doing a great job. I don't want my money back at this point. I want it done! This is the worst Kickstarter project I invested in. Same excuse for years... Very disappointed
I just emailed you about this. I didn't realize all these messages were posted about this until after that email was sent. I'll hold out for the book, since I'd still love to see it. Please keep me on the distribution list. Good luck :)
I'm very sorry everyone. We current;y working with a new publisher and are eagerly anticipating the release of the book. We'll make it happen and apologize for the incredibly long delay. We failed in properly putting together this project and lacked the funds to make it happen sooner. But, getting this book off the ground is definitely a priorty of ours.
If you'd prefer, please private message me and I'll refund you.
Jasper any updates on when the book is gonna be done. It's been a long time. I think we all deserve a updated or the truth if the book is even really gonna be done or not.
Almost 2016....any status of the book would be helpful Mahalo!
Any updates on the book?
Any new updates on the book?
Thanks for the update, Jasper! I'm really looking forward to the book. It's a great opportunity to commemorate the first 5 years of Pow! Wow! Hawaii! Best of luck with the remainder of the book production!
Thanks for the update Jasper! personally not unhappy, just wanted to stay in the loop! I'm super keen to see how it all comes together! especially after just watching the POW! WOW! TAIWAN 2014 video (http://vimeo.com/118068114)
I apologize for the delay with the book. We are currently working very hard on it. It was our first time raising money for a book project and we didn't raise enough funds. We underestimated the cost and the percentages that Kickstarter and Amazon take out. We've been seeking additional funds to cover cost of production and design. Making a good book is very costly.
I know some of you are unhappy. I'd be more than happy to refund pledges. Message me directly and I'll send it out ASAP.
What's going on with this book? It's been almost 2yrs since this funded. I think everyone here needs a update. We all have been patiently waiting.
Hows the design coming along? I agree with Qwux, would love to see some progress shots on backer only posts. Also, Really looking forward to seeing what comes out of Pow Wow 2015!
Hey Jasper, any updates on this? Been pretty quiet over here. I know things take time but it would be great to hear some progress updates or see shots on backer only posts. Cheers. Qwux
We're still hard at work on it. We hired a designer and he is laying the book out as we speak. It's a lot of work and we are trying our best to get it done as soon as possible. I'm very sorry for the long delay. We wanted to do it right and you'll all be very pleased by the end result.
@jasper wong - I know it's pretty late but is there any update to the book that was supposedly suppose to be sent out? I just read the comment you made at the bottom and wanted to inquire. I'm sure others are also still curious about their backed successful project.
We are hard at work on designing and taking the book into completion. Currently, a designer is laying out the entire book.
Unfortunately, we have limited resources and the money raised was not enough to cover the cost. That is completely our fault and we are trying to raise additional funds to pay for printing and design.
I'll stay in touch and inform everyone once we have a solid date.
I apologize again for the inconvenience.
Any word on when we are going to get our books?
Sorry for the lack of communication. We're currently in the midst of planning out inaugural POW! WOW! Taiwan. It commences at the end of this month. You'll be happy to know that we'll be including that project in the book as well.
Speak of which, we are hard at work on designing and taking the book into completion. We have limited resources and unfortunately the money raised was not enough to cover the cost. That is completely our fault and we are trying to raise additional funds to pay for printing and design.
It's great that you decided to include the 2014 festival in the art book, but can we get an updated estimate of when that will be ready and shipped to backers? Your last update was in December 2013.
I've also wondered about the art book. But after re-reading a post from August of last year, I see that it got pushed back and will now also include pictures from this years Pow Wow. I'm hyped on it. They just finished Pow Wow 2014 so I imagine it will be a bit longer before the books get produced and shipped.
Also, I really enjoyed the Instagram photos from this year's Pow Wow. Great work!
First off I want to say amazing job
for Pow Wow Hawaii 2014! It's definitely been a while but I just realized that I never did receive the book in October. How do I clear this up?
Hi Christopher! We just sent out an update. I'm so sorry for the lack of communication. We're going to keep everyone in the loop from this point onwards. Thank you for supporting us! :-)
Hi! Do you have any progress to share for the art book or the documentary? I know the delivery date is not until October, but it would be nice if you could give an update or two before then for backers. Thanks!
