Thanks for posting here!

If you want physical copies, we'll need you to send over another $10 to square up on shipping. This link will allow you to do so:

Greetings, Permie Earthlings.

As far as I can tell my $100+$15 S&H backing for the Better World Books Kickstarter went through on my Kickstarter acct and all is well.
Just posting to let you know I'm reachable if need be; also I'm brand-spanking new to permie-ology, so please be easy on me.
Wondering, for any courses included with Glory for which I'm eligible, is it required to attend this year (2019) or can I attend later?
I'm full-up in the scholastic department at this time.

Things look all good on your account!

The dealio was for this year's courses. The gapper fee does make you eligible for future events where the only fee is the gapper fee.

Thank you for your diligence, Shawn. I logged into Paypal and believe that I have paid the $15. At least, Permies.com said "We got your payment!" Please let me know if I need to do anything else.

I'm backer #1614 and I would love to upgrade to the $100 level if possible.  10 physical books would be great so I can spread them around the local public libraries and little free libraries.  Last name on permies is different than kickstarter because there's only one of me in the world and I like a little privacy.  Thanks so much!  I'm looking forward to reading the book.

Thanks everyone for all the support and help from this site.



Hi Matt, we'll get you all sorted out.

Are you wanting any physical books or just ebooks?



Hi Shawn I was hope to do an even mix of the two since I have recipients who prefer both methods of reading



We can do that. All we need for now is for you to square up on shipping:

Jon,

Yes, you can.  

To figure out how much coin to fork over, please tell me if you want all ebooks or you would also like physical books.   If you want any physical books, are you in the US?




Sorry it to so long to reply. I would like 3 books please. I do live in the US.

Thank you.

I just want to make sure that there have not been any further developments / updates about the kickstarter rewards sent out via email that I missed some how.  The May 12th update sent through kickstarter is the last thing I received.
Thanks!

Jon,

When popping up to the $100 level, kickstarter would tack on $15 for shipping.  So, $115.  If you use this link, we will get you all sorted:

The $100 level is the glory level and kickstarter thinks you have selected a much lower level.

It looks like you are in the US.   The amount you have paid is perfect if you wish to receive zero physical copies at the $100 level.   If you want at least one physical copy, send over $15 with this link https://permies.com/pp/15/lisa-marie-kickstarter-fix



Paul, did you get the $15 I sent over with the link provided?

Good Afternoon,

I read through most of this thread looking for some sort of comment about the Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist book by Michael Judd, which I see is only valid for 48 hour window, and didn't see any comments.  I wanted to make sure that this hasn't passed and that there will be sufficient notification for people to get ready to get their copy.  Do you have an estimated time window for that to happen?

Thanks,
Colter

On friday, kickstarter will send us funds and then we really kick things into gear.  

Right now, we are more in a get things super polished and ready for that day!

So, michael judd's book will be at least a couple of weeks out.  When the time comes, we will send an email to all the people that supported the kickstarter at $100 and higher with instructions about the window.

Upon further reflection, it is possible that a few of you may have received a second invite. I'm not sure. If that is so, sorry for the extra email.

When I click on "my stuff" and i look to the left i see "DM threads - gifts I manage" - not sure if you have that too.
