Only £38 to go for the next stretch goal BUT only 26 minutes.

Anyone else thinking of pledging.

Alright then. Electronic edition for now. Plus 2 dice :)

BTW: I can't find shipping costs for the dice. Are you shipping for free or am I blind?

Edit: never mind, just saw that the pledge levels that include dice mention an additional 2£ shipping outside UK. Will have to up the pledge then.

I plugged it on FB and Twitter with 30 minutes to go - it looks like you've made it over 7K - well done...

PS - given my pledge - was I pledging just for that? Will I still get an eBook and stuff?

@DH: you'll be getting eBooks, rest assured. Does the Drabble include the Loose-leaf pledge too? I think it does - so you'll be getting a printed copy too.

@maik: thanks for the kind words, most appreciated. that two-week bit in the middle where about £10 per day was coming in was a bit hairy, but this weekend has been amazing.

Wow. I'm stunned by that last half hour. It was crazy... My heart is going ten to the dozen. And now the exciting bit is over.

Why am I wasting time sitting here, I have a book to write!!

Thanks everyone. Oolite and its community are the best.
