      Andrew - Cua was obviously a typo, but sorry for posting your full name. Didn't realize anyone would care. Just wanted to make sure I was giving thorough updates. I also said I'd be contacting you directly, and I will. At which time I'll verify your current address. You might want to update the address in your profile.

      Hope you have a great weekend too!

      Not even going to get mad...
      That you didn't verify my address before sending,
      Or my last name is wrong in the list below (Im going on a limb that I am supposed to be Andrew Cua, no other Andrew C__s on the backers list),
      Or that you couldn't contact me knowing that I have been waiting,
      Or you published full names of backers, we have control of our public profile names for a reason.
      Consider this me contacting you, but glad you left a 'note' in the message as I didn't receive any message from you directly.

      Have a great weekend!

      Update on that. Sent out messages to everyone in the CAMILLA reward category asking for updated addresses. The last one we sent only got a couple of replies, so maybe there was an error there, but if you could all please reply to the Kickstarter message I just sent out with your updated address we can get them mailed early this week.

      Ray here.

      @Calliope - So glad you got your book and liked the sketch! And thank you for taking the time to post the news in here. :D

      @Anthony - I'm sorry you're frustrated with the wait. I understand. We had a further delay after my update on March 12th, but are ready to ship early this week. And everyone should have gotten a request for an updated address, but if not I'll send again.

      And that should finish the project off. If anyone else has not received your book or reward, please send me a message and I'll get you taken care of.

      Thank you for your patience and support of the project.

      On March 12th, Ray said: "CAMILLA COPIES will be shipping out next week!"

      Two weeks later. No address update request, no shipping notification, no updates of any kind.

      @Andrew C, I imagine they're not responding to my comments because they likely feel I'm being a jack***. Which isn't far from the truth. I'm sure that all of us who haven't received our book have a pretty good reason to be at some level upset. Every time I've ever gotten a response (even when I was still being polite) all I've ever got was a comment pushing responsibility onto others or some vague remark about what the status was with what turned out to be a false statement about delivery times.

      I'll probably be more surprised to actually get the book than I am at any continued delay at this point. Even trying to apply the theory of discrete probability couldn't help us get an actual estimate of anything happening. We might have a better chance at winning the lotto!

Yes, I am the one responding to inquiries about the book. Renae has to avoid stress as much as possible for health reasons. Please respect that. Thank you. And, yes, True Detective IS amazing. Hope you check it out!

      As for everyone else, All CIRCUIT EDITIONS have been sent so you should have them or be receiving them soon (Canada and Australia seem to take the longest).

      It isn't a signed one, just numbered. I'm in the UK. Are there specific problems for us? I got the sketchbook at the time in 2011/2012 and I can see from the survey on here you have had my correct address all this time. To be really honest, I don't really mind if it isn't numbered. It beginning to cost me more chasing this than the cost of the book.

      ALL TYPES OF CIRCUIT EDITIONS - We will definitely have these shipped out before Christmas. BUT, for INTERNATIONAL copies we can't guarantee how long they'll take to arrive only that we will have them shipped out and will send tracking info.

      Thank you for your patience. Sorry if there has been frustration from the complications and delay we've had. Finally done with that though. And thanks again for supporting!

      I have been quiet pretty long on this -- because I understand health and family come first, but it has been over 2 years and I feel that is more than enough time for me to start complaining.

      We backed this project, which went $75k over the goal. Now, I understand they don't have money now, but that should not be our problem to fix. We paid for these to get shipped to us. We paid a lot. A long time ago. And we deserve to have our books. The artists are not to blame here, and I feel like every update has been blaming the artists.

      We deserve to get what we paid for -- if you have to take out a loan to get these to us, that's what you need to do because if you don't have money, it means you spent our money on other things and that's not fair to everybody who is waiting.

      I live near-ish to the Canadian border -- and if I could get help with the gas money, I would be happy to drive up there and bring the books with Camilla's sketches back to the US and send them to folks for a lower shipping cost. At the very least, allow Camilla and her assistants to contact people and see if they are willing to pay to have theirs shipped directly. But you shouldn't be *expecting* people who have already paid a lot of money for this project, to pay for shipping on something we shouldn't have to pay more for. The extensive amount of time we've waited should be payment enough, and this needs to be taken care of. For those willing to pay, though, the information needs to be available to get this sorted out.

      If there is anything I can do to help get these out to people, PLEASE contact me. I know I can get my copy if I pay for shipping, but I don't feel right getting mine if there are still people waiting, when this should have been taken care of long ago.

      Veronika, I agree, don't judge all Kickstarter projects by the disaster that this one has been. I have backed many comic book projects and have had very few problems, and none like this with such a poor level of communication. Congrats on at least getting your book, I still haven't received mine.

    30. Missing_small

      Creator Erin Tapken on October 23

      Andrew, The reason Veronika had to get her book directly from Camilla (and pay $54 to have it shipped to her - see, she paid, not her "persistence") is because Ray and Renae do not have any money to pay for the books to be shipped from Canada to the US. This issue is all about money. Camilla should not be on the hook to pay for the shipping of the books after already donating her time to do the sketches. Contributors were not paid for their work or their time.
      Ray and Renae are hoping to find a cheap way to get the books back to them so that they can in turn send them out.

      Creator Andrew C on October 22

      Hi Veronika, So glad to hear that you got your book. Not sure why you had to work personally with Camilla and her staff but your persistence paid off.

      Re never backing another KS project, do not base your decision on this project. It has been a horrible experience for a number of people. There are a number of responsible creators out there, Camilla had her own project that was fulfilled very quickly and had a great result.

      This morning I have finally received my book. I paid $54 to get it posted over by Camilla's fantastic assistant Tasha. Thank you so much Tasha!

      So, two years late, here it finally is! Was it worth it? Yes, purely for the Camilla sketch alone. But really, it all cost me not just the $200 but masses of my personal time. If I was charging for the time I wasted chasing things up, then no, it would not have been worth it.
      Would I ever fund another Kickstarter project? NEVER AGAIN!
      If Renee and Ray feel like refunding me the postage cost, that would be absolutely fantastic ($54 Canadian, thank you). But I am not holding my breath.

      WRITERS CIRCUIT EDITIONS: As you can see we now have ALL Writer's Signatures! So we'll be sending those out asap. Renae will also be doing a little sketch and signing your book as well as a thank you.

      ARTISTS CIRCUIT & FULL CIRCUIT: We are missing one of the artist's signatures, but we are going to go ahead and mail out your book as soon as possible with the 2 signatures and Renae's signature and an extra little sketch by Renae!! As soon as we can get the final signed signature book plate sticker from the artist we will be mailing that to you too as well in a separate package. We didn't want you to have to wait further for the book. Based on everyone's responses, that seemed like the best way to go.

      CAMILLA SKETCH EDITIONS: We should have everything in place in the next week or so to get Camilla's sketch copies back here to the states to then mail out to you individually.

      Again, very sorry for the delay on these, but we've very excited to finally be able to start mailing them out to you.

      We have the other two writer's book plates here.

      ARTIST CIRCUIT UPDATE:

      We are waiting to hear back from the last of the artists on the second printing of book plates that we sent. The first never arrived.

      We have the 2 other artists book plates here.

      CAMILLA UPDATE:

      We're coordinating to find an affordable and quick way to get the books back to the states and shipped to you.

      It's also come to my attention that I made it sound like I was blaming Camilla and I want to clarify that I do not and I'm very sorry if it seemed that way. I only meant that Camilla shipping them individually wasn't an option, so we were trying to find an affordable way to get the books back to the states and shipped individually out to you. The only issue has been trying to coordinate, not them holding anything up. It's just been more complicated than anticipated.

      Big letters time...

      CAMILLA AND HER MANAGER TASHA HAVE BEEN WONDERFUL!!! Very very nice people and we very much appreciate the donated time and gorgeous art. I'm very sorry if anything I said sounded like anything other than appreciation.

      REGULAR COPIES (DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL)

      Ayal- Your $65 was not for a signed edition, but for a regular copy and a sketchbook. I'm really sorry you haven't gotten it yet, but since it's just a regular copy we should be able to fix this now coordinating with Thomas at the company department that IDW uses (and where the books are). I will be emailing him now with your information. You're also free to email him so that he's in direct contact with you rather than me being the middle man.

      You can email him here: thomas@trivisioncompany.com (I'm also emailing him right now with your information).

      Yours is an easier problem to fix.

      Camilla backers, we're working with Camilla's manager (she has the books at her house now) to get the books back here so we can ship them to you. I'd ask that you not bother Camilla with this and only me. She was kind enough to donate her time and art to this. I don't want her to have to deal with the stress of it all. We just have to work out an affordable way to get the books back to the states and out to the backers.

      Renae,
      I gave to the 65$ pledge for the signed Womanthology book and the sketchbook. And I actually paid 100$, so 35$ more than needed. 

      I never received the Womanthology book. I did receive the sketchbook, so you are able to get something delivered to my door.

       I feel taken advantage of. You took my money, promising something in return, and you never delivered on your promise.

      In addition, you keep blaming IDW for it. I have no business with IDW. It is you I gave good money to.

      If you are at all serious about getting the remaining books to the rightful owners, I would suggest you chase it and find out where the orders got stuck. Because I am not the only one who didn't get his book.

      I'm fine with the book not being signed, if that is what is needed for me to finally get the book.

      I am not sending you my personal information by email again. I have done that several times now and you seem to have done nothing with it.

      If you don't plan to give me my pledge reward, then at least be honest about it.

      Do you think you could please get my Womanthology picture done? I have been waiting for my book for over a year now. I know that the lady doing the admin was sick, but she is back on track now, and I really just want to get it by Christmas if possible.

      I have received yet another message from the Womanthology people, this time to say that "Unfortunately, our friend has fallen on hard times and is now unable to go get the books from Camilla so we are actively trying to find another way to get the books asap."
      I have been waiting for the book and your picture for 2 years now. I have said already to Renee that I am happy to have the picture shipped separately, if that is the only remaining issue.
      Is there any way you can help?
      I am so angry and frustrated with this experience that has dragged on for two years. I would normally just say forget it, give me my money back, but I have spent so much time chasing it up, and I really want the actual book, I was so excited about it to begin with.
      If you can help at all, I would be really grateful.
      Cheerio,
      Veronika

      I can only second Joshua's. Lisa's and Erin's comments. I have tried, for two years, to be nice, civil and sympathetic. But frankly, I don't care if Camilla was flying to the moon, never mind getting married. If she has finished the sketches, which you said she had done a number of months ago, you could have walked to and from Canada by now and could have picked them up yourselves.

      I have had to communicate with Camilla on facebook to try to move things along, which I find highly embarrassing, seeing as I have absolutely nothing to do with the project aside from having helped fund it. I am waiting for her latest reply to my message. Will post it up if I receive one.

      Who is going to compensate me for the time I have had to spend chasing this up and in writing these endless comments and messages? Never mind the compensation for the initial investment?

      I got to say this whole thing is unbelievable. I'm just really glad I didn't contribute to your other Kickstarter project. If I had any clue when I made my pledge that after two years I still wouldn't have the book and that I could just get a copy on eBay for $15 and got the writers to sign it myself at conventions I would have just done that. And what are the chances that, assuming I ever receive the book, that it is numbered in the first 100 or that that would actually mean anything. The only thing that you both have delivered is a bunch of useless words. I agree with others in just wanting my money back. I know that if I ever do get the book I will just hate it after the ludicrous way this has been handled. I was so proud to be part of this when it funded, and now I am just disgusted by the whole thing.

      Lisa- I'm very sorry if I missed your emails. I'm overwhelmed with emails. But please email thomas@trivisioncompany.com and he will help you get your book. We don't have the books, we went through IDW's printer and shipper and they're still there. He's agreed to speak directly with each of you to get your books shipped out asap.

      And anyone with a regular copy (not signed or sketched) please email thomas@trivisioncompany.com

      Thank you.

      ~Ray
