Well, I've caught up on sleep as well as my household chores, and finally managed to sit down and read the book we wrote. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who took part. It's amazing how much I was surprised by what people come up with to meet the briefs.
I've had a flick through the thread again, and picked out a few of the unanswered questions (Stacey, I know you said you were going to ping a couple of questions over. Happy to answer here, or via email if you prefer).

I can do this if people want, either on a no-names "by NiaD 2013" basis, or by listing all 25 authors individually.

I don't have access to the download stats (or at least, I have no idea how to view them), but I do know that the page hosting has had about 600 views, about 85% of which only visited the page once.

Not as much as you might think. I did very little prior to Ioa's initial announcement (except for coming up with a two paragraph outline), and if you look at the timestamps for the "Rough Synopsis" and "Chapter brief" for each section in the .scriv file, you'll see that an awful lot of the prep happened very shortly before the event. Anything more than that can seem a little disingenuous, as I explained here
all the way back in February.
Anyway, thanks again to all. I can't say that every minute pulling together our little trio of books has been fun, but I'm certainly proud of the end results, and hope you all are too.
