Got our book today! Looks amazing!
Great to hear! My geek/nerd GF is tired of being teased about her Xmas/Valentines present. lol
Yep! We just heard from the printers, and everything is going smoothly. They expect the books to be in our hands in two weeks, and then we'll be shipping them asap!
So it's been a month since the last update. Any news about when the books will be finished?
She is as pretty as you, Shanna :)
I'm not the model -- that's Jen Page, a geek model and actor.
There are two: the same picture in color and in white and black.
Many thanks for everything, :)
I received great pictures !!! I look forward to receiving the e-book.
Shanna, are you the model on the pictures? There a
Thanks Shanna. :)
Heya! Yes, you'll get the ebook and all of the digital goodies in the first week of December, but probably not the print book until after xmas. You can give her a digital version as part of the IOU :)
Hey Shanna, do you have any idea what sort of date we're looking at for delivery to the UK? Just wondering whether I should wrap an "IOU" for my Fiancé. This isn't a chase. I'd rather you're happy with it than rushing it out, as my Fiancé is aware that one of her gifts might not be quite ready. :)
@ Shanna: Just sent you some lyrics ... let me know what you think! :)
Congrats! And...doh! Can I still add the money later so I can get another copy??
You. Are. All. Motherfucking GEEK GODS.
and get your port
LOL, no kidding. I hope this exceeded your expectations. You deserve all the success you earn from this and working with Monte. You are both inspiring people. I am proud to have been part of these kickstarters
@Grant: We should have made custom bags a stretch goal, so I had something to carry them all in!
and that 350 books is a heavy load. I'm glad that I'll have one of these personalised collector items
Use your words, Shanna. Use your words.
@Shanna, congratulations on your super successful kickstarter from this sophisticated, charcuterie making, world traveling, medicine practicing gamer geek
@Michael: I posted it in the comments a while back, but it probably got buried. Sorry about that!
Here it is again:
@Michael (and everyone else!): If you've pledged at the BIG O level or higher, you can now add-on additional print copies of Geek Love for $55 or signed copies for $70 (S&H included in both).
Just add the difference, and we'll ask you what it's for (and who you'd like us to send it to) after the KS closes.
I never heard any definite info regarding ordering a second copy of the book....will this perhaps be an option after the KS ends? I'd like at least a soft cover copy to give to a friend, or the option to give an electronic copy as a gift...
look at those numbers today, nearly $1000 bigger than the first day
I'm sure I'm not the only one who's okay with you getting hot and bothered over these large numbers :D
@Grant: We have dark chocolate as well. You are spot-on!
@Ben: Thank you so much. I am in a space of delight.
35 days and more than $32,000 later, the Geeks have felt the Love :) congratulations Shanna on this amazing project that has more than exceeded all expectations!
a lovely port is an especially nice way to celebrate, and in the best of nouveau tradition, you should have that port with some dark chocolate, dopamine kicks for all
Also, all lovely backers: The kickstarter closes in less than two hours. I'm on the east coast right now for a writer's retreat, so at 11PM (my current time, 8PM PST), we will be having some lovely port to celebrate the project's success.
I hope you can join us from wherever you, in doing a celebratory dance in honor of nerdy, dirty words!
@Grant: It's just so awesome! Geeks really do rock!
@James: Thank you so much. And also: hahahah. That second comment was awesome.
*Adds punctuation where appropriate, this being a literary project and all*
I have to jump on a plane before this finishes, so Congratulations on making your goal, blowing away Kicktraq's predicted top funding and getting your project into print, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!
@shanna, so you beat the high projection fit your project and still3.5 hrs to go

A little geek love blog post: What I've Learned about Geek Love.
Number 4: Watching a community of geeks form around a project they’re excited about is one of the most wonderful things I’ve ever seen.
In 305 bucks you go over kicktraq's highest projection for the project
and there's still an almost 6 hours to go
Wow. This is so awesome. I'm can barely sit still right now!
officially the biggest day
straight into 2nd place and 1st place in just 72 dollars
4th biggest day and climbing
I'd help but N.S to Seattle would be a bit of a long commute. Although Sandra and I will be out that way sometime next year to visit Sandra's Dad. We would love to take you and Mr. M. Cook out for dinner should we be in your stomping grounds at the time
@Grant: I know! I'm going to have to recruit some assistance!
@Shanna, you've sold at least 325 hard cover books, you're going to have one sore back carrying those babies home
You are all so very awesome. Watching today's pledges come in is incredibly rewarding!
