Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. After the Kickstarter ends, transactions are made for the next two weeks. I'll be able to send surveys which will collect your address info (etc.) and provide you with the option to buy multiple copies. These multiple copies will also be Kickstarter Editions (not the Amazon version).
Additional copies will be shipped at roughly half-the cost of the first copy.Last updated:
Shipping also takes care of various order processing, packaging costs, and pick-and-pack fees, that more experienced Kickstarter creators roll into their product price. It also includes shipping fees. Overseas costs will include additional fees from an EU-based fulfillment company and I am working to pay for the import fees. I cannot 100% guarantee this until I sign a quote from overseas fulfillment partners--and I am still working on getting paperwork together for this.
Additional copies will be shipped at roughly half-the cost of the first copy.
Backers will NOT be charged more or less than what is listed on the Kickstarter.Last updated:
I don't know. My December delivery is an estimate.
There are delays in paper purchasing, as of 9/19/2018 my printer has place an order for paper without any money down. This is highly unusual for his company, but we cannot wait for the mid-October Kickstarter funds to be delivered or we'll miss holiday deliveries by a month. Delays also happen on-press. Always. How long these delays will determine delivery. I will be regularly posting updates to his project to communicate delivery expectations.Last updated:
Yes. The Kickstarter edition will never me made available again. I am printing on a web press the Amazon Edition which is hardbound, and full-color throughout.
The Amazon versions will be sold at $49.99 and be distributed via Amazon's fulfillment system. Shipping costs are vastly reduced when ordering through Amazon.
The Amazon Edition will NOT have the gold cover lettering, gold end sheet, and spot varnishing that are the hallmarks of the Kickstarter Edition.
My estimate for Amazon is early 2019.Last updated:
Doubtful at best. Slip-cases need to be manufactured early, in order to make the December delivery estimation, so there will be a small amount of extras. I will use them as promotional copies or put them on Amazon, but they will NOT be signed, nor will they house the Gold Kickstarter Edition of The WoW Diary. They will contain supplemental books and the Amazon version of The WoW Diary.
All the articles of the supplemental booklet will be made available through my website: https://whenitsready.com/interviews-and-articles/Last updated:
The paper is ordered at of 9/19/2018. As it is being delivered, I'll work on The WoW Diary files to prepare them for press. The emails for eBook/PDF distribution will be sent in mid-to-late October. When Kickstarter money is collected from you (after the campaign) I'll send the surveys, emails, and prepare for my trip to the printer. For a few weeks I'll be on press, signing off on the book (and signing the signed copies). The fulfillment houses will delivery the goods when they get them, and I'll begin an account with Amazon to sell books online in 2019.Last updated:
Depending on whether I get their attention, I'll be selling "Amazon versions" of The WoW Diary though other channels, if the distributors want to give me the time of day.
I'll attend a few conventions to sell my book. See my web page whenitsready.com or my Twitter feed Twitter feed @JohnStaats_WIR for appearances (although I'll have nothing planned for at least 6 months, I've a LOT of work ahead of me), and test my next project: a dungeon-crawl board game unlike anything you've seen before. It'll have fast gameplay, simple rules, and engaging boss fights. I'm SUPER excited about it. Sign up to my web page's email list if you want previews. :DLast updated:
