First, let me address a few Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I’m moving between now and when the items ship?

Please access your survey through Pledgebox. If your survey is locked, then it is URGENT that you reach out to shannonmayerteam@gmail.com and request an address update. Please note, if you wait to do this until you get an email stating that a shipping label has been printed for your order, we may be unable to update your address, and if we are able to do a last minute update, you will be charged for the second shipping label.
 

When will I get my items?

My goal is for everything to be shipped by the end of November of 2023.
 

You are responsible for any additional customs/duties/fees that your government imposes.

If I chose the payment plan, how will I be invoiced?

After your initial payment at the close of the Kickstarter you will receive 2 invoices via Paypal. One in October and one in November, each for $75USD. Your books will NOT ship until all payments have been made. Any unpaid invoices will be canceled after 15 days minus a $20 USD administrative fee. 

Who do I contact if I need to ask you a question about the Kickstarter?

After checking through the FAQs section on the main Kickstarter page you can reach out to shannonmayerteam@gmail.com and my team will take care of you.
 

Will items from the Kickstarter be available in the merch shop later?

I don’t have an answer to this yet, but I can tell you that there will be at least one item that will never make an appearance in the merch shop: The ‘Call Your Fire’ tumbler. It’s 100% exclusive to Kickstarter. I do not anticipate the items from the swag boxes making an appearance, IF they do they will be in extremely limited quantities.

 

Are the ebooks be the same as what I already have from Amazon?

These ebooks feature some of the same interior artwork that is used on the endpapers and the interior formatting for the Hardcover editions, and will include the author letter that is part of the Special Edition of Fury of a Phoenix. They do not have ALL the fancy formatting, they are an upgrade from the current Kindle Editions. The book content (aka the story) is the same. 

How will I receive my ebooks?

The bonus ebooks, plus any purchased ebooks have all been delivered directly to your Bookfunnel library using the email associated with your Kickstarter order, or to the alternative email you provided during the survey process. To read your book, log in to the BookFunnel app or my.bookfunnel.com using the email address from your Kickstarter order. *If you do not already have a Bookfunnel account you will need to create one using the email address associated with your Kickstarter order.
 

Lost or Missing Packages

Packages are picked up by USPS on Tuesdays and Fridays. (UPS varies.) If your package tracking is not showing movement, this may be why. Your order’s label may have been printed, but is awaiting our next pick up date. Most often, we see new labels scanned within 48 hours of pick up.

If your package shows as delivered, but it is not yet to you, please give it 48 hours, and then contact the carrier to see if they can locate it, and contact us to let us know that you’re working with the carrier to find the missing package. If they are unable to locate it, we will work with you to get it replaced. We are unable to assist with any lost packages that show as delivered after more than 30 days from the delivery date, or missing packages more than 90 days from the date of shipment.

If you still need help after reviewing the above, then please reach out! We’re here to help.

Have not received a tracking number?

First, please be patient. It is entirely possible that your order just has not shipped yet. We will update this page as shipping progresses. Even as others begin to get their orders, yours may still be in the queue. Many of the items from this Kickstarter are hand crafted in small batches by skilled artisans. They are not mass produced. This means that not everything will be ready at the same time.

Second, tracking information will come from ship@pirateship.com. Please search your inbox for an email from them to find your shipment tracking email. If you are unable to find it, check your spam box.

Please note, staff is unable to provide individual tracking or shipment updates until ALL packages have shipped.
