Supporters

This official novel project for the Elite:Dangerous game is only possible due to the amazing generosity of all my supporters. They pledged their money to my cause, some to buy a copy of the ebook when it comes out, while others pledged above and beyond, to help shape the story and to help make sure it got across the line.

Those that pledged to the dedication tier and above will receive a dedication in the front of the book.

Supporter Rewards

This Elite:Dangerous novel project is now well advanced. Alpha reading has been completed, final editing has begun and the novel will be professionally published by Fantastic Books. Pre-ordering of the novel is now closed but will re-open on the Fantastic Books webstore when closer to the launch.

For everyone has pre-ordered the novel do not fear, you are still on the list and nothing has changed. You will be emailed your copy of the novel on the launch date.

  1. Hi John,

    It seems I missed this one as it wasn’t on kickstarter. Though I’ve been reading your updates since the beginning as I see them mentioned on the FD Forums.

    So, in short, what do I do to back your book this late to the party? Do I just donate 8GBP through the Paypal button to get the eBook?
    And what is the pricelevel for the audiobook your planning on? Or is that something I can up-pledge (Jonty!) to at a later time?

    Cheers,
    Jurriaan

    • Hi Jurriaan
      Thanks for getting in touch. Sure, if you want to grab the book its 8GBP through paypal as you have already figured out. I”ll add you to the database and you’ll get a copy when it is released.

      I haven’t quite figured out the audiobook price yet, as its a tricky one – it will only happen if I get enough funding. My current thinking is to make it a free add-on to those who pledge to a certain level (still to be decided) and yes of course you can jonty/upgrade from any level to any level at any time. Make a note on the paypal what you are doing if you can, otherwise I”ll just add the value to your name on the database and bump you up to the next level.

      If you do decide to back, thank you, I really really appreciate it. Even if you don’t thanks for stopping by and I hope you continue to enjoy the updates. Do you listen to the podcasts?

      Thanks,

      John

      • Hi John,
        Thanks for clearing it up for me. I will definately pledge for the eBook sonner or later.
        I also listen to the podcast. They’re informative and I like the format of the journey that you are integrating into it. It’s also fun to hear others appear on it which can spark noce discussions as you move along your trip.

        Keep it up!
        Cheers,
        Jurriaan

  5. Hi John,

    Not heard so much from you recently. Sounds like you are still working really hard. Really looking forward to reading your book.

    Is it too late to up to the beta?

    Regards,

    • Hi Zplintz.

      Went a bit quiet because I moved house and lost internet. Still working myself into the ground on this project. Finished an edit, going back and touching up a few details here and there.

      The Beta is coming out tonight! come hell or high water it’ll be done before Monday.

      So, no, its not too late.

      P.S if all the stars align this Monday’s update will be something a little special 😉

  6. The powercut must have really rattled you – you double posted on your own site.
    That’s normally my job 😉

    Looking forward to Monday’s update.

    Just donated again – I hope that is right though. Let me know if it is not and I will donate again.
