      Hi Alan,

      I recently received a shipping notification about an item being shipped to me. I’m guessing it has to do with the Genius Loci Kickstarter. I should be getting a Signed and numbered copy, however, I have not received an email from Jaym Gates for the personalization.

      Back in October, Jaym said she would be contacting us for those personalizations after she got a list of those backers from you (Ragnarok). Any updates on that? I figured emailing directly would be easier than trying to ask via Kickstarter.

      Thank you

      So...still don't have my books yet.

      Well I received A book today, but not the book for which I pledged. At this point, I have no other option but to report this campaign to Kickstarter and see if they'll do anything. This is beyond ridiculous.

    7. Kim Mainord on August 3, 2017

      Friends who live nearby have received their books but I haven't received a shipping notice or the book, or any of the other rewards I'm supposed to get. Is there an ETA on this?

      And that's a full month since I received a shipping notice, yet the tracking still says that USPS hasn't received the package yet. Get your shit together, Ragnarok.

    9. Jason Breining on July 24, 2017

      Just reiterating that I have not received this book yet.

      Over three weeks since receiving a shipping notice and not having the tracking update to show the book has shipped. Did you guys actually mail my book or did it fall between the seats in someone's car?

    11. Steve Burnett

      My book arrived a week or so ago.

      It's been over two weeks since I received a shipping notice, but no book yet. Judging by the message I get from USPS, it seems like they printed a label but haven't actually mailed the book yet.

    13. Michael Nichols on July 17, 2017

      no book for me either

    14. Jason Breining on July 9, 2017

      No book for me yet at this time either.

      I received a shipping notice on the 1st, but the tracking has stalled at "PRE-SHIPMENT INFO SENT TO USPS, USPS AWAITING ITEM." Ah well, at least it's progress I suppose.

      Got my book today. Arrived in great shape. Yes it was late, but got a note acknowledging that and a free ebook download. All good.

      Earlier this week I got a notice of shipment and tracking. I got mine delivered at work on Thursday and brought it home today.

      Good day to you,
      could you give an estimate, when we will receive our books? Reading the comments, it seems as if you haven't shipped any books at all yet.

      Greetings from Germany, Arne

      Ok this is getting a bit ridiculous. If you shipped 4 books a day you would be done by now. What are you doing? If I don't hear soon that I am going to receive my book soon I'm going to have to report this project.

      So the mailing out separately update comment was several months ago. I still haven't received my copy. Any update?

    21. Cathi Falconwing
      on June 22, 2017

      It has been two months since I last left a post. So I don't think this is nagging . What is the update on the book please?

      I know stuff happens just keep me in on the loop, okay ?

    22. Ben Moser on June 15, 2017

      Are books still shipping out? Have not received mine yet either :(

      Hello Jaym,

      It has been almost 2 months since a post, just wanted to check on the status of book deliveries for the remaining backers?

      I haven't received a book as of yet, either. Checking in.

      Hey just checking in because I still haven't received a copy.

    26. Rachel Haemmerle on June 5, 2017

      Hi! Trying to figure out when I might be receiving the book. I was part of the Twilight tier and I have not heard anything. Thank you.

      I know you are working on things, just checking on the status of my book?

      I just wanted to leave a quick comment - I received the book. Not only is it beautiful (and a very enjoyable tactile experience indeed), but it has been a real pleasure to read! Still working my way through it, but the stories are just exquisite. Thank you for a wonderful project!

    29. Jaym Gates Collaborator on April 30, 2017

      Hi everyone,

      I'm going to be mailing the books out separately from the rest of the rewards for the upper tiers so that we can get you your super-overdue books. The rest of the rewards will follow as soon as possible thereafter. I'm trying to coordinate with Ragnarok so we can finish this up. Again, I am incredibly sorry for how long this has gone on, and am doing my best to wrap this up and get you your rewards.


    30. Cathi Falconwing
      on April 28, 2017

      I really hate to bother you , but I never got a book . And I really really want this book . Could you please send it out ? I really like the thought of the deckle edges .

    31. Jaym Gates Collaborator on April 13, 2017

      Hi Shiro and Danielle,

      Yes, you are. BackerKit is one of the least intuitive platforms I've ever used, and I'm having to manually sort out who has and hasn't gotten their book. I am so very sorry for the wait.

    32. Shiro the white wolf

      Am I ever going to get my book?

    33. J.M. Martin 6-time creator
      on March 2, 2017

      @Donald Cobb — Yes! In fact, it's helped free me up to finish these tiers out. I shipped books today and will ship more tomorrow. I will NEVER AGAIN do fulfillment on a project from my home. Henceforth we'll use fulfillment services. I also have some ideas about how to make up for this appalling lateness — at least somewhat. The snail-like pace in my delivery of this wonderful anthology makes me feel like a total jackass.

      I don't suppose the recent merger/acquisition will help get this book to backers any faster, will it?

    35. Joanne on February 27, 2017

      Still waiting as I haven't received anything and I've moved to a new address so this will likely go to the wrong place and never get to me anyway

    36. Danielle La Fors on February 17, 2017

      Hi, they are doing a reading at a book store where I CAN BUY THE BOOK. Any news when I'll get my kickstarter one?

    37. Steve Burnett
      on January 22, 2017

      Still waiting, nothing received yet. A general status update would be appreciated, thank you.

    38. Cathi Falconwing
      on January 19, 2017

      well, as long as I know I will get the book eventually, it's all good.

    39. Jonathan Hollingsworth
      on January 18, 2017

      I appreciate your renewed efforts to finish up this project and look forward to receiving the book. I think a general shipping update would be good once you've hit the next shipping mile marker so everyone knows progress is happening and we are getting our books. Thanks!

      on January 5, 2017

      You guys are totally right. I've not treated the upper tier folks here well. That's on me, and I am sorry. I've been shipping this out by my lonesome, pretty much, in addition to running Ragnarok (the company) and taking care of three kids. But it's beyond the point for more excuses. I'm renewing my efforts to get more of these out and will post an update or comment when I ship a batch out.

      I'm also trying to think of a way to make this delay up to you all. I am sorry for the insanely long wait. :-(

    41. The Mad Hatter on January 5, 2017

      I'm in the camp waiting for my copy. An update of some kind would be greatly appreciated. If people got copies weeks ago then that means they at least exist. Pretty crappy that I can go to Amazon right now and have a copy shipped to me immediately.

      Also waiting. Is there a shipping update available?

    43. Kim Mainord on December 26, 2016

      Is there an update on the shipping progress? I'm still waiting for mine.

    44. Joanne on December 26, 2016

      I've been waiting for ages to get my book and I've sent multiple messages with no response either! So frustrated and not willing to back future projects this creator puts forward

    45. Missing avatar

      Tammy Sparks on December 9, 2016

      This is the second message I've left. I know people who backed Genius Loci who have received their books weeks ago. I have not received anything, nor have my comments been answered. Very disappointed with the communication so far. have been waiting 1 1/2 years (????) since I backed this project.

    46. Jonathan Hollingsworth

      Haven't received my rewards from Imperator Noster. No communication either. What's happening with this project?

      Nothing since July and MIA on the message boards. I think either an update or responses to people's comments would be appropriate at this time. I don't mind projects going late but you have to keep us informed.
