Oh good, I can just look at your copies now.... :D

Ordered a few of The Living Room, but couldn't pull the trigger on the awesome Bottle City LE.  I'll have to wait for the standard... :cry:

Just a straight additional pledge, but it's not required.

For example, could I by 1 copy of the Living Room and add an extra $20 to be a Silver Dragon sponsor or do I still have to buy 3-4 copies plus add an extra $20 like with Cairn?

The former.

The online checkout doesn't automatically adjust the quantity if a sponsorship level is added.

That's the correct behavior as Rob and I hashed it out a couple of days ago.

Keep in mind that sponsors won't be listed on the actual product, but only on the PPP web site.

The Paypal fields are not properly recording the numbers of LR ordered, thoughthe dollar amounts are showing.

For now until David corrects this, please note in the Paypal Notes field the number of copies ordered and the sponsorship level, if any.

We will have this corrected soon but are still able to take orders.

The drive is doing well, thanks to everyone!!


This should now be corrected. When you order 'Living Room' the item name should contain both the quantity ordered (like this: "(QTY: 3)") and the Sponsorship level, if any.

I was trying to outsmart Rob to see if he could do simple arithmetic, but he was too fast for me. ;) :lol:

THANKS ONE-AND-ALL!

The drive is doing very well so far.  About 70 copies of BC LE remain, just from my quick ciphering.

I crashed and burned, had been up way to late dealing with stuff for this, but it's nice to wake to a robust and positive environment. :)

The Acaeum folks rock, need I say?  :)

Later, as it's now time to start printing orders and doing all the clerical leg-work involved.

:P Rob

Woo-hoo.... snagged one Bottle City and a Living Room. Can't wait to read them.

Just a quick question - I know the run for the limited edition is 100; what's the plan if PPP doesn't receive 100 orders by Jan 31? Do they go ahead and publish, send out the ones ordered and just have the remainder for sale through the website? Or will they delay publishing until they get the 100 in the bag?

Regards

Mike

Bought the Living Room today.  

I'm really excited about this.

Still trying to determine whether I can afford the limited Bottle City; I may have to wait for the standard edition.

Thanks Mike!

Whatever number sells by the 31st is the number we will print/issue, that's it.
So if it's 40, it's 40, etc.  100 was the MAX copy limit that we would issue on this product.


My hope is that we sell 50, nice round number, and I am doubtful now that we will issue all 100, though I could be pleasantly surprised.

Howdy Mike - the quote is from a book I'm reading on the English-Spanish war of 1584. The quote isn't attributed to anyone in particular (and in fact could be apocryphal), but is supposed to be from the leadup to the war.

At the time, Spain and Portugal were busily exploring westward and claiming all the New World territories for themselves. Other countries such as England and the Dutch wanted to get in on the action, and the quarrel was referred to the Pope (by King Phillip) to decide who should get what - basically, the Pope favoured the Spanish and Portuguese (being good catholics) and ignored all other claims. He decided all land above a certain line belonged to Spain, and all below to Portugal.

The quote is supposedly an English diplomat's response.

Regards

Mike

Watched Johnny English with Rowan Atkinson last night.  The quote reminded me of the scene with the archbishop where he is forced to do exactly the same thing!  8O

I hope you did well yesterday, but I am curious to know the number of copies that were accounted for on the first day offered. I know such information is certainly privileged information and not for public knowledge, but are you willing to inform us about your first Days numbers?

We have less than 60 copies remaining.  I believe the number sold so far is 43, but I have not done a tally since 11pm yesterday.  I'll do another tally again at the end of the day.

Hope this helps, and do please check the BC order page as our webman is updating the number remaining when needed.

Hearty thanks again for making it a successful drive, and don't forget to pick up Living Room as well, as only 300 numbered and signed copies of it will be issued! :)

Best,

Rob Kuntz

As to the Living room.

I do not understand in the least anything about the Sponsorship choices shown on the Pied Piper Site.

What is being sponsored? And why does it need sponsorship?

Would someone please explain to me the reasons for and the purpose of the sponsorship and what are the benefits (If any) of signing on as a sponsor? Are the levels of sponsorship different in any way other than the obvious cost differences?

If this has all been explained here already then please forgive my ignorance and would someone please link that info for me?

Aneoth:

I think the sponsorship is a way to help support Pied Piper publishing.  Like a contribution.

Yep, short and to the point. I like it.

As Bombadil said, it is just a way to help support PPP. It is purely voluntary. The only benefit is that your name will be listed, along with the level of your sponsorship, on the PPP web site.

I hope that answers your question.
