I'm tired of the updates. Please just deliver the book.
It looks great! I'm looking forward to sharing it with our daughter. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for the detailed update. I think you answered a lot of lingering questions. Looking forward to giving this to my son!
Starting with writing WOW! Wonderful to have a little sneak peek at the book! Keep up the good work! :)
We had many questions from the previous update that did not get answered...
1. What % of the writing is complete?
2. What % of the illustrations are complete?
3. When will the digital version be available?
4. When is it being sent to a printer?
5. When will hardcovers be shipped?
6. Have you signed a book contract? Have an editor?
7. How quickly will the books ship once you receive them? Or will you ship that out to someone else?
8. As noted in the original campaign, will the e-book be available in PDF format?
Since you don't know the final book size obviously it's not 100% complete (although you list the chapters, so you're what, 80% there?). I agree it looks good, but we're still missing a lot of details about the process that many of us are obviously eager to hear.
Thank you, Casey, I concur.
Keep up the good work Linda.
So excited for this book and going through it with my munchkin.
Hello and thank's for the updates. I agree with Casey and Hannah. This project for an ebook (so no printing delay to expect) is starting to be kind of long to wait for : 10 month since it was successfully funded.
What % of the writing is complete ? Will it be ready for Christmas ?
When is the book expected to be completed?
I love your updates Linda, it's great to get little peeks into Ruby's world.
Hi all, thanks for your messages and word of encouragement! In the middle of the long, cold Scandinavian winter, we take energy from wherever we may find it and this Kickstarter community continues to be my inspiration motivating me to work harder, so thank you!
Let me respond to some of the questions in below :)
Casey, I hesitate to think in numbers, as Hello Ruby for me is foremost a creative process, but to answer your question
I’ve set myself on a tight deadline, and hope to be able to share concrete timelines soon!
I have a book publisher as well as a lovely editor (yey! more of that soon!) and am in discussion over how to proceed with the KS backer deliveries, hopefully being able to send them as soon as possible. Also, yes the book will be in PDF as per original statement, I’m also still in talks over this.
