That's a Wrap!
The last books went out this morning! That's the last six books plus two replacements for copeis that were damaged in shipping. If you haven't received yours (or at least the... Read more
Down to the wire!
While the rest of you were (hopefully) enjoying a relaxing Memorial Day weekend, I've been packing the last few KS and pre-order books for shipment. Those of you who have... Read more
This is for my backers who are starting to wonder if they will EVER get their book!
You have every right to be angry and disappointed in not having received... Read more
More shipping progress
Seems like a good time fore another update.
I just finished emptying my 17th box of books. At 20 per box, that's 340 books. Some of those went to the authors... Read more
I'm going as fast as I can
Hi folks -
I see it's been over two weeks since my last update. It's been a trying time since I have to ship everything out by myself. (The fulfillment... Read more
Progress and Posters
I finally received and/or created all the Rewards at my end (autograph plates, CD's, CD labels) and have started shipping out the Backer Rewards. I'll be shipping in Backer Order... Read more
The books are here and they look gorgeous! I'm very happy with the way they turned out:
I'll be sending them out just as fast as I can. There's... Read more
I just spoke with the printer and the books shipped last Friday! Since the printing plant is only 300 miles (500 km) from here they will probably be delivered today... Read more
I made my weekly call into the printer to see what the status is. Everything is going according to plan and the ship date (to me) is still the 20th. ... Read more
Another Step Closer
Short version for the time-challenged: Talked to the printer again today and the book is off the press and into bindery!
Longer version with another war story that might be... Read more
We have a shipping date!
Spoke to Irene at the printer today to get an update. She said that the production assistant who knows how to run MS Pub was finally freed up to work... Read more
Thank you all for your comments! I know you're preaching to the choir (or more like the choir preaching to me) but it's still immensely reassuring to see that we... Read more
In the Pink!
Than you all for your comments.
I'm glad to see people would rather wait a little longer for a "perfect" book rather than sooner with a "defective" one. To help... Read more
It's been a week since the last update. Work is still progressing, but it's just not as dramatic as with the last few days of the campaign.
I marked up... Read more
Proofs are here!
The Galley Proofs are here! Wasn't expecting them until mid-week. I'm taking this as a good sign that the rest of the printing will go as smoothly.
I've posted some... Read more
That's a Wrap!
What can I say? I've already used "humbled," overwhelmed" and "boggled" to describe my mental state as I watched this project wrap-up the past few days, some 25% above the... Read more
My mind continues to be boggled by the response the past few days! I somehow was expecting that once we'd reached the goal that backing would sort of die off. ... Read more
I'm really overwhelmed and a bit stunned at the response the past 48 hours. I've already said "thank you" so much that it sounds trite, but I can't seem to... Read more
Down to the wire!
Wow! I feel like George Bailey at the end of "It's a Wonderful Life!" I can't begin to express my appreciation to everyone who's signed up as a backer the... Read more
Poster Thumbnails Up
Nick has put thumbnails of the posters up on his website. There are links to them in the Poster FAQ. As I mention there, the thumbnails are just the hardware... Read more
OK, we're down to just under 25% of the time but still have just over 50% of the backing to raise!
Thank you to everyone who's contributed so far! In... Read more
Printer back on the job
The printer has returned from their forced two-week shutdown and I'm happy to say that this is the first project they started on.
I had a back-and-forth with the production... Read more
Progress and Rewards
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas/Solstice holiday!
Here in the mid-holiday week between Christmas and New Years, I wasn't expecting much to happen on the campaign, and it seems... Read more
(Note: The following may be TMI for some of you. You'll get the basic update by just reading the first and last paragraphs.)
For the past three weeks I have... Read more
A Great Start!
What a great start! Less than 36 hours since launch and we've reached 20%. Thank you all so much!
