     The fact that you willing

     The fact that you willing to learn what you need to put the content out for us is really kick ass. I just didn’t know if it was your end or mine. Hell I was listening to Earthcore the other day and just noticed that the quality of the audio isn’t what you put out today. While the inital quality may not be up to snuff we know that you will get the hang of it and put out better quality stuff down the road. 🙂


    Does someone go into the park and, uh… lift up the dinosaurs’ skirts?

    That’s a thought

    We’re considering that. As we’ll soon be out of ROOKIEs, there will be no option for people that don’t do eReading. After ARealGirl and I finish these next two deadlines, we may explore POD paperbacks. Some of our contemporaries are doing that now, but we haven’t checked on success rates or revenue.

    It’s not just storage, it’s shipping


    Thanks for thinking of offering up the basement for storage, but the real killer is the time spent packing and shipping books. We’re not to the point where we can outsource fulfilment, and even if we could, we would need to find a company that will work with our individually numbered books. It’s not just taking one off a shelf, it’s making sure it has the number — in the order of which books were purchased — unique to the customer. That is the time-killer, and that is what makes ARealGirl the made-of-win machine that she is.

    So even if we could find less expensive storage, we’re still doing the fulfilment ourselves.

    However, your basement sounds ideal for storage of other things. Like bodies. We’ll be in touch.

  4. Lone_Ghost_Jinn


    I think that is a good idea but I think the real crux of the  problem is not the cost but having to pay to store the inventory that is not sold, and take time away from writing/creating content to go to the storage and mail books whenever new orders are placed and that the exuberant price for the books comes in with the print to order technology.

    I thought about recommending my basement as storage to the FDO for free but that would require moving the inventory several states, trusting a stranger to take care of and ship his merchandise and most likely I would just end up rolling around in all the books like they were a giant pile of my money!

    Had to go grab credit card

    Had to go grab credit card in the end. Looks like paypal and the backmybook confirmation page aren’t talking to each other properly. Hope the rest of you paypal users get your order through ok.

    Great idea, but low on resources

    Our app was made by a fan who generously donated his time and skillz. We’ll work on improving it down the road.

  21. C_the_new_Chang_Bang_Expresso

    Sigler ascension day is upon us

    Scott, you know this brother loves him some FDO, so I say this with all love. Why, oh why does your mobile app not have an in app purchase feature? A junkie like me could put some serious pain on the buy now button in your app. Perhaps you’d bless us with one for your next book pre-order event?

    All ebook publishers have a computer application for reading their books.  You may just download it your PC then transfer it to a device if you ever get one.

    They’re free.

  27. mrben


    OK – there’s some bullshit going on somewhere. I’m guessing that Sigler got his GMT and BST mixed up. If the counter on the left here is correct, then the book will be available at 5pm *BST* (British Summer Time, ie British Daylight Savings) and *not* 5pm GMT as it states elsewhere.

    Flashman – check out the time again

    It’s at 5-00pm BST UK time check the ticker above (Not 5-00pm GST)

    Something to do with how I formatted it

    It’s really strange. Doesn’t happen all the time, but I uploaded the same video to Facebook and it had the lag constantly. Still not sure, video is a new TechTard thing for me.

  31. Carnie

    I am glad that I will once

    I am glad that I will once again be able to get my preorder in there. When I went to go for the Rookie I got book 668…i was soooooo close to the one I wanted. Either way I can’t wait either!

    Also, did anyone notice there seems to be like a .5 sec lag between the video and audio at times?


    Does someone go into the park and, uh… lift up the dinosaurs’ skirts?

  32. Lone_Ghost_Jinn

    Listening here, FDO

    I do not have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, though I do have an old beat up iPod Nano.  I don’t want to make more work for you to do.  I’ll take the link and use it when I get something I can put the ebook on.  I’ve got a couple of friends trying to bring me completely into the current age as it is.


    Can we pre-order, the pre-order?  I can’t wait!  Come on, is it April yet?

    From being a techtard

    Turns out I was being an idiot – the formatting on Gmail made me think that I was getting multiple copies of the same email, but it was actually comment notification messages because I had unwittingly subscribed to a comment thread.

    Sorry for the panic. (Please don’t tell my boss or I might get tech-fired too! 😉 )

    mrben “Carpe Aptenodytes”

  34. Scott

    From episode postings?

    Are you getting them because we’ve posted lots of content? Or that and the email newsletter?


  35. Drelijarlos

    Ohhhhh Yeahhhhhh!!!!!

    Oh man, the hardest thing to wait for after the pre-order is the actual delivery date!  Ordering makes the wait even more unbearable!  There’s no one else in the world that I would pre-order this far in advance for…. That’s for sure!

    May barbarians invade your personal space!

    Listen here, smart-guy …

    While your altruism is appreciated, do you have an iPhone? An iPad? An iPod Touch? If so, you can read the free eBook. If not, then we’ll try to figure something else out in order to give yours away. It’s a little more complicated than just “giving it away” due to our system, but if that’s what you want we’ll work on it.

    Free ebook with purchase

    I do not have an ebook reader.  I do not plan on getting an ebook reader.  How does one get their favorite FDO to sign an ebook?  Answer:  They don’t.  I am preordering The All-Pro on April 1st.  Perhaps, instead of sending me a link for the ebook download we can use the one that would be sent to me as a reward to someone else for doing something cool or winning a contest?  Just a thought.

    Don’t forget daylight savings!

    All us folks in the UK need to remember when we’re setting our calendars to remind us to buy the All-Pro that daylight savings kicks in this weekend, and so it will be 6pm BST.

    (It took me about 5 minutes to work out whether it was 4pm or 6pm – stupid daylight savings. Say No! to double daylight savings)
