This project sounds really interesting!
I have submitted it to EQD, and in fact taken out an ad in the sidebar, but they've not run a story on it. Hopefully they will.
I literally got an email back from them while writing this post, they're 'addin' it'!

However, we do want to reward the people who actually made the audiobook possible, so we'll most likely make the audiobook available only to backers for a limited amount of time. We will also probably only offer the highest quality of audio formats to backers, ie backers will get 320kbps MP3 or lossless formats while the free version will be 128kbps MP3.
Jumping in here just to say that I know some people, like myself, would gladly pay for better quality formats once the audiobook is out, though I do not know how legal that would be. Perhaps the money gained thereby could be given to a charity?
Either way, I'm excited to see what will become of this project!
Well, if you're willing to pay, then go ahead and fund the campaign!
If you fund it now and choose that reward tier, you'll have the high quality formats once the audiobook is out. Even if we were to agree to sell the book after the campaign and give the money to charity, the book won't exist if our crowdfunding campaign isn't successful. If you want it, you should try to fund it now if you can. If you're worried that others will miss out on the crowdfunding campaign, then the best thing you can do is make sure that they know about it!
I am trying to get the word out, and I think a post on EQD will help a lot, but the absolute best thing people can do to make the project succeed is to make sure everyone who'd be interested in a Fallout Equestria audiobook is aware of the project. I know there were quite a few people who missed out on the book printings, and I want to avoid that if possible. Yes, once the project is complete we can figure out what to do for people who missed out on the campaign, but ideally the only people who will miss out on the campaign are people who aren't yet Fallout Equestria fans!
Sincerely though, thanks for your interest in the project. I really hope that figuring out what to do for people who couldn't join the crowdfunding campaign is a problem we have to face in the future.
