First of all, we would like to thank all of our members for taking the time to donate such wonderful recipes to this book.


Thank you to those who submitted such fabulous photos and sketches so we could add that ACD touch. We were able to use most of the photos submitted, only a few were not usable because they wouldn't transfer well during publishing due to the quality of the photo.


We have set up a Web Site specifically for sales and more information about it. So please take a look, and remember all profits benefit The Calendar Fund!

Is there a way to order two right off the bat? I don't mind the extra S/H going to the Calendar Fund, but I didn't see a way to change the quantity on PayPal. Thanks!

When you get to the first PayPal screen you are able to change the quantity and update the totals there. Each book incurs the $19 charge which includes the $3 S&H.

I tried to order one, but it only wanted my checking account, even tho I have a cc on file with my PayPal account. Will have to look at in depth later.

Belgrael
08-09-2007, 05:20 PM
Barb, usually there is an option to choose from an alternative account when you get into PayPal. It will default to your savings/cheque account but underneath that it should show your CC.

Let us know if there is anything you need help with.

Nope, it didn't let me change the quantity. I had to make two orders. That's fine with me, but just wanted you to be aware...

That's odd, did you use AOL? We had one person buy 3 at once this morning so I know it works.

No, I was at work, so was not using AOL. Both orders went through though, so at least I have them on order. I looked everywhere for a place to change the quantity, and didn't find one. It gave me options to change my funding source, and my address, but not the amount. Weird!

sjmclain
08-09-2007, 08:10 PM
I cross-posted too - I put out the word through the ACD community on Myspace (which is surprisingly big) so hopefully that'll bring in some orders!

And Erin, thanks so much for all your hard work on this project - we couldn't have done it without you!

I had to grab one too - this is just such an awesome fund raiser!

08-09-2007, 08:58 PM
When I ordered I didn't see any option to change the quantity I wanted to order. What happened was the page had to be scrolled up or down to find the place to change the quantity I wanted to buy. The page opened up at the sign in area for paypal. I hope this makes sense to everyone.

It is a possibility, but the publishers said don't count on it. That would be the soonest they will be ready. They want to give them selves some wiggle room, just in case problems arise. We did however, get them in right before the holiday rush, so That is a plus.

On a side note, they are selling fast. We only ordered 250, I did not want to order too many, as this is the first year for this fundraiser, and I had to pay up front for them. So you may want to get your order in anyway. We announced them for sale yesterday, and in 24 hours we have sold close to 40 allready. :thumbup:

I just ordered a third one. My granddaughter turned 16 this year, and when the kids and grandkids turn 16, they start getting gifts for their "hope chest" for Christmas and birthdays. I figured this would be a great hope chest item, since she loves dogs!

(This time the quantity gave me an option to change it, so that part works now. :thumbup:)

I am so sorry Michelle! Yes we are experiencing technical difficulties with paypal. We should have the problems resolved in a few days. I will post an update as soon as we are open again. So far we have already sold 70 books!:thumbup:

The PayPal issues have now been resolved so we are taking orders again! :thumbup:

Thank you to everyone who has purchased the books!!! :thumbup::thumbup:

I just spoke with the publisher and they said things were moving along smoothly. They also said that the release date will be between October 10 - 20 th. So they WILL NOT be ready for the national specialty. :s7:

At least we have them before the holidays! :thumbup:

For those wishing to purchase books out side of the USA, it will be cheaper to ship a bulk order to one address, then the person who has volunteered for this position will then distribute the book orders to the proper addresses.

So far the sales have been great, we are up to 72 books sold, and we have 178 books to go. I know many of you have helped spread the word, and we thank you for that.

Thank you all so much for helping this fundraiser be such a great success!:thumbup: I am looking forward to handing out fliers for it at the National Specialty coming up. I was also told to put a stack on the "Fundraiser" table. So please for those attending, please feel free to pick up a few and pass them out to your friends. :s11:

Am waiting for mine too, but they will be Christmas gifts - one for me, one for a dear friend - the woman I got Rody Jane from, and one for my granddaughter, who loves dogs and is just starting her "hope tub". ;) (We used to have hope chests back in the olden days, but can't afford them anymore, so we now have "hope tubs", LOL!)

The link does not work for me too.

The Wife wants to know if it is a cookbook for Dogs or is it a people food book?

She's hoping it's a dog food cook book.

Thanks

Belgrael

Ok, link all fixed. Sorry for the hassle.
Vernon, the cookbook consists mainly of human recipes but we do have a dog treats section in it too.
If you check out the Cookbook forum (http://www.aucado.us/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=22) you will see the different sections of the book.

:party0019::party0019:
I am very happy with them, except for the title page. It looks like they got a bit carried away with photo shop, unfortunately.
But if that is all I have to complain about, it is WONDERFUL!
So now that I have them in my hand I will start finding mailers for them to ship them out. :thumbup:
We still have plenty left, so don't forget to place your order.:thumbup:

Nothing that you worked on. :thumbup: I sent a title page in of Di's sketch of Kim's Taser. And they changed what I did, they got a little too carried away with the eraser. I showed them to Mike and he didn't notice it. But I KNOW those who have seen the sketch will. :s7:

Since BOW takes twice as long as other banks, I will be at least a week away from ordering. BUt I need at least one!

Update! Went to Reno yesterday to look into mailers to ship the books out thinking they would be cheaper there. Well I was way wrong. So I am going to get pre-paid mailers from my PO. My post office is so small they have to order them and ship them to me so I will not have them until next week. Sorry for the delay folks. :s7: You all have been so patient through all of this. I really appreciate all of your support.:thumbup:

Well I sent out the first 42 orders today! I would have done more but ran out of supplies. :s7: So those who ordered first will get them first. Sorry. I will not be going back to Reno until Thursday. I am bound and determined now. So If I clean one place out, I will hit the next one! :Smiles (9):

I only joined this forum last month, but when I read through the recipes and see who submitted them, I think, "Oh! That's so-&-so's mom/dad!" I feel like I know you all, although we've never even "met!" :biggrin2:
