Prepare to dock! eBooks should be with you by end of play today...

Hello lovely backers!  
Great news.. I have just heard from Fantastic Books that you should all have your eBooks (those who pledged £5 and above) in your email inbox by end of play today. It has been, and continues to be, a mammoth task that Commander Dan Grubb and his team are doing to get everything out across the 5 Elite titles they are handling... plus all the work on the online shop where you can order your paperbacks, audio books and other shenanigans for all the Fantastic Books catalogue (link to come as soon as possible) when it opens later this week... on behalf of everyone I want to thank you all for your patience... 
So please check your spam folders and suchlike, and if your ebook isn't there in the next 12-24 hours ping me a message on here and I will check into things... hopefully there won't be any dropout, but I did transfer the email details of you all by old fashioned cut n paste, so it is possible some human error may interfere with efficiency. 

Regards the rest of the formats, paperback, hardback, audio books and signed stuff for the other backers, there will be more on this soon. You will all be able to order stuff you didn't pledge for through the shop when it opens (later this week if we can get the Trumbles infestation purged!), and on Amazon a week or so after that I believe... 

If you haven't already booked a place at FantastiCON, I will be there doing a reading and answering questions.. and I am reliably informed the paperbacks and box sets should be on sale there if you want to get them signed by myself and the other awesome Fantastic Elite authors! 


It's been an epic journey and I am so excited to finally be delivering your first look at the story you helped create.. in so many wonderful ways. For the 200 attention seekers, have fun finding yourselves in the text... and if you really can't then I have marked everyone by chapter and page in a spreadsheet so ping me a mail and I will let you know where to look!!

      Hi. I haven't had mine yet. I had assumed I would be last because of my name...

    5. Phil Hibbs on June 2, 2014

      Oh, wait, there it is. Sorry!!!

    6. Phil Hibbs on June 2, 2014

      Thanks Kate! I've received my copy of the book and it's loaded on to my Kindle. Looking forward to reading it. Well done!

    10. Vincent Willcox on June 1, 2014

      Tust me to have a surname with a W at the front! I'm probably not going to see my copy until I am back at work tomorrow.

      Got mine just now and works wonderfully with a free iPad app that I've been using for PDF comics called "ComicFlow". Normally I'd load a book into my Kindle app reader but for this, I decided to try it with the comic app instead and I like it more that way.

      Correction - now received email - lol re the timing - must have arrived right about the time I was typing that below

    13. Jamil Ismaili | Eternal Dreamer on June 1, 2014

      (I haven't got mine yet for the record ;) )

    14. Jamil Ismaili | Eternal Dreamer on June 1, 2014

      Going from the other main Kickstarted elite books published by Fantastic books, I gather they are sending out individual emails manually, so it may take a time over (hopefully) the course of this weekend for peoples emails to arrive - assuming Kate's backer emails are being handled in the same manner.

      No sign of the ebook for me an' all. I'm not to impatient for it though. I've got this little game I can play while I'm waiting. :)

    16. Vincent Willcox on June 1, 2014

      Still no eBook and its now 6 hours 41 minutes into the next day :(

    17. Richard Hicks on May 31, 2014

      By close of play today are we working on UK time (in which case start of play tomorrow has already come) or another timeline?

      Still yet to receive any ebooks.

    18. Pēteris Krišjānis on May 31, 2014

      Succesful delivery, thanks Kate! Lot of pages to read, will print and read next week sometime ;)

    19. John Warlow on May 31, 2014

      Just received my eBook - it's winging its way to my Kindle now!

    20. Tybot on May 31, 2014

      Update 42 = EBooks...
      I do believe the universe it telling us something

      You do realise, I am now going to crash gmail by hitting refresh on my mailbox every 5 seconds until this email arrives, don't you?
