      Hello Yael and Jenny -

      So thrilled that you're bridging a very old concept and tradition to the world of new media. Unfortunately, I am unable to enjoy the first serial. In other words, to echo Roy's message to you... I am unable to download the first story from Amazon since I'm in Canada.

      I'm looking forward to hearing back from you!

      Hello Jenny and Yael, congratulations! I had the pleasure of meeting you both the other evening at the Twitter/NYPL/New Yorker event. I'm so excited-- Not only have you met (and exceeded!) this Kickstarter goal, but also you're infusing a relatively staid literary community with some genuine on-the-ground excitement. I witnessed this in person! As I said to Jenny, I feel quite proud of you both, even though I have no rights in the matter. It feels great to invest in something I believe in. Can't wait for more!

      Hi Yael & Jennifer...

      I got my Amazon Kindle gift email invite. Headed over to the Kindle store, and found that HACKER MOM is 'not available to Africa'. Please can you edit the geographical rights so that all territories are represented? (And please zap me an email letting me know when I can download.)

      Congrats to Plympton and supporters for reaching the goal!!! I am a humble backer and would like to know if anyone thinks that a weekly serial is better than monthly. I've asked around and friends think a month is too long to dive back into the story with other books and life vying for our attention. What say you?

      $2,500 until funded! Let's do this!

      Speaking of typos, I wish KS offered an "edit comment" option.

      This KS campaign has been on lurking in the background of my second monitor every moment since it went live. Work. Work. Work. Work. Check progess of Plympton page. Work. Work. Work. Check Plympton. Work. Follow Plympton on Twitter. Work. Work Work. Check page, check twitter. Work. Check. Work. Check. Work. Twitter. Work. Work. W!O!R!K! CHECK! CHECK CHECK! PLEDGE PLEDGE PLEDGE! Relief.

      Thanks for this. I think this is an idea long overdue.

      If there's one thing eBooks need, it's editors. A lot of eBooks I encounter in Kindle have quite painful typos. A method for providing feedback on typos for future readers would be great.

      I'm quite excited about this idea. I think you'll do wonderfully and I'm looking forward to it.
