897 sticks in my head but that's just a guess I'm sure Bill has the hard number somewhere.

That number sounds familiar. I think that I got my number from you.

I will probably power up my old computer later today. I need to figure out how to transfer files to my new PC with only one monitor to share between them.

I had an exact count, Chris, but it is on my other computer that is out of service for scheduled maintenance. I am sure that the number is close to a thousand.

Which version of the book did you get?

I got the full edition.

No worries about the #. Just wanted to know out of curiosity.

Thanks again!
Chris

I got mine on the 16th but have only flipped through it, haven't had a chance to really go through it yet.

Impressive though!

Two or three people have said that they unintentionally selected the wrong version when they placed their order and did not catch the mistake until they received their book. Because of that, I decided to add one more notice on the order page to help avert future errors. There were already three places on each page stating the version, but the new fourth notice is in extra large print that is very hard to overlook.

A few people (three or four) have said that they ordered the full version, but received the family friendly version instead. I suggested contacting Blurb support to resolve any mistakes, but I also did contact Blurb support by email to see what they had to say about the possibility of an error. Here is their reply:

Hi Bill,
Thanks for contacting Blurb with your concern.
Both books in your account are a different file from one another. You are correct in saying that books are printed as they are ordered, and usually book files are not "mixed" up. In this case I believe the customers ordered one book thinking it as another. The only way to troubleshoot this is having them contact us , that way we can check on our end which file their book was printed from.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have additional questions.
Best Regards,
MarĂ­lia
Blurb Customer Support

So, if anyone is certain that they received the wrong version and wishes to exchange it, contact Blurb and they can check their records to see what was ordered.

The two versions were uploaded to Blurb on different days and have different item numbers. The process is mostly automated so it seems that the most likely point where an error would occur is where a human is involved in boxing the books for shipment. If the invoice has the version that you received then I suspect that an error was made when placing the order.

Just ordered the full version book, and the JUNESALE code is still working for the discount... thanks for that heads up :) and what a fantastic book and here's to the next one, but hoping quite a few more are involved next time and not just the few!!!

Just want to say a huge thanks to Bill and the crew that managed to get this all sorted, and I can only imagine how much of your time has been taken up sorting out this mammoth task, especially with everything else that you all have had going on in your lives.....

Cheers again, and be proud of what you have achieved

Thanks for the kind words.

If the JUNESALE discount code times out, I have another one, but it is only good for a 10% discount: CONGRATULATIONS

I believe that code is good through August.

To all on the book team, a HUGE thanks for the effort over many years. Got my copy about a week ago (ordered Vol 3 as well) and it's a great collection - the book looks fantastic. I've done a few books with Blurb myself and I know how much effort goes into it.

Just an update on discount codes - JULYSAVINGS will give you 10% discount on orders of US$50 and 15% discount for orders over US$100 until 29 July.


It's all in the details.

They refunded my shipping due to a slight printing delay - due on August 7 now. Not bad for delivery to the tiny island in the middle of the Pacific where I'm based for a few months!

Hopefully the island is larger than the one where Tom Hanks played a marooned FedEx exec in the movie Cast Away or the package may have to be delivered by raft. :D

Wish I could have done more! You guys deserve the praise!

Got my book yesterday and it looks amazing! I haven't had time to go through it in any detail, but from flipping through I'm very happy! I had forgotten which images I had submitted so it was a surprise to see them as I looked through. Honored to be included with the very talented photographers in the book!
