When I went to bed last night, I knew today was the day.
In the waking hours of sleep this morning, I heard a smart phone alert from the nightstand. I sat up and checked it. Jane Fairorth had made a pledge before she set off to teach her 8:30 a.m. yoga session. That's my kind of wake up call.
By 10, a few pledges later, we were $24 away from full funding. Joel Walker, a good friend and soccer co-captain, has been following the campaign. He couldn’t stand to wait around for someone else to seal the deal. So he upped his pledge. Again.
From the first pledge, $20 from Derek Evans, an entrepreneur in Nashville, on the first day, to the latest $20 from Caitlin Herrschaft, an artist in Lancaster, Kickstarter has done me one great favor, showing how great my friends are.
We reached $10,000 with time to spare, so I’m going to take advantage of that head start and keep hustling pledges.
The more people who read Infidels, the bigger the story gets.
You didn’t push me this far so I could quit early.
I have until Saturday at 3 p.m. EST to sell books, so help me keep up the hype and spread the word.
You backed a successful campaign on Kickstarter, for a fresh novel called Infidels, and there’s still time to get others in on the action.
Thanks for your pledges and enthusiasm.
