BOOK TWO PRE-SALES HAVE STARTED! (Update x3)

I'm finally close enough to the end of the first draft that it's time to start getting money together for Nettah the Edittah. There are two packages this year, the Paperback Presale Package and the Ebook Presale Package. They contain all the goodies from last time:

  • An autographed paperback (except the ebook-only package)
  • All four ebook formats
  • Your name (however you'd like it) in the acknowledgments
  • ...and the biggie: The unformatted doc file within 24 hours of its completion. That's right, you'll get the manuscript before anyone else does--before it's even been turned into an ebook--as soon as editor Annetta Ribken and I decide it's done.

The PPP is $50; the EPP is $25. If you're getting the PPP and you're outside the States, it breaks my heart but I'm going to have to charge you an extra $10. Shipping nearly killed me last time. Sad

Last time you wonderful people funded the entire production of Lovers and Beloveds: IHGK Book One--the editing, the cover design and the typography. I'm hoping we can do that again this time.

I decided not to use Kickstarter; the fees are too high. I'm thinking I might Kickstart the map poster project, if only to spread the word about the entire History.

Thank you in advance for your support of the History. You guys are the ones who made this necessary -- er, possible Wink --and I love every one of you more than you'll ever know.

Update: If you're an international buyer and couldn't get the surcharge link to work, that's fixed now. Sorry! Thanks to lowercaserho for troubleshooting that with me.

We're already 20% of the way to the first editing goal!

Update 2: Now 25% of the way. Smile By request there's also a new option: Paperback set of book two AND book one and all the other good stuff.

Update 3: As of 9/23/11, we've raised the money for the first editing round. Huzzay! If you know other readers who did the pre-sale last time, you might want to drop a word in their ears; even though I've reached out in a dozen different ways, not everyone has heard.

... done. Here's to many more repeats of the necessity for pre-sales. Smile

I will probably make sure you get something extra for being so prompt. Smile

... 't weren't nuthin', ma'am.

I was wondering about that, actually, when I looked at the time stamps. You know, there has to be at least some small upside to living with that much of a timezone difference to most everyone else here. Smile

Jay says I have to wait just to make sure the $50 isn't needed. *pouts* But never fear! I shall work extra (if I can) to get it!

Is there any chance that "international" doesn't include Canada..?

...and I'll post to this thread.

Canadian prices are almost identical. I could refund you a buck, maybe two...just put a comment on it that you're in Canada...

International shipping is RIDICULOUS, even just across the border.

I haven't checked this site in a while, sadly, but what good news to come back to! I pre-ordered the last book, and I will probably do the same with this, if I can. More History, hooray!

Does anyone else check this site on a regular (read: almost daily) basis? I can't wait for the next book to be ready! This is one of my favorite series.

I should be able to order soon. Meilin, would it be possible to throw a shirt into the same package, so I don't have to pay the shipping to europe twice? Always wanted a subtext shirt...

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I don't sell the shirts. Those come from Spreadshirt directly. If someone finds me a European-based POD shirt place I'd be happy to upload designs to it!

this time ordering was quite painful for me, literally. I would have had to wait for the paperback to come out, cause I had no spare money. Then I broke my finger and got some money from my insurance. So here I go, putting it to good use. Lucky, isn't it? :cry:

What a way to do it! Hope you're feeling better.

I'm feeling a little down. It doesn't hurt much now, but having my right hand nearly immobilized for at least six weeks needs getting used to. The worst part is that it happened three days before the final exams for my job, which now have been postponed to march. And leaving my colleagues in the shop alone in all the pre-christmas madness feels like I'm a traitor (although they don't blame me, of course). :rolleyes: Shutting up now, sorry for whining. I'm already starting to get bored with rolling in self-pity, so it's getting better, thank you. Free time, yay! Blum 3 I'm just glad something good came out of it and looking forward to the new second book!
