Hi everyone! Dan Edwards from Kickstarter here! I've already mailed out about 3/4 of the copies of Mr. McFrawley's Traveling Show and the rest are going out tomorrow. Thanks again for your support. It blows my mind that this project went from "I'll putter around on this and see what happens" to "It's ON!" almost entirely as a result of your support. You've altered the entire trajectory of my career, and for that I have lots of love for you all!
In looking at the "Backer Report" Kickstarter provides, I noticed that some of you pledged at the end of March in 2010. That means that from ordering to receiving, some of you had to wait nearly a year. I apologize for the book taking longer than I expected, but I have included a few things to make it up to you.
1) Everyone got an upgrade in the number of tarot cards that came with your order.
2) The book DOUBLED IN LENGTH. It's now 64 pages long and has over 50 illustrations. I like to think you got even more than you paid for!
I'd love to hear what you all think when your copy comes in.
A couple of housekeeping issues: For those of you who ordered the oversized prints of pages of the book, the shipping tubes will be in later this week, so those'll ship separately once they come in.
The Read Along version will be finalized soon. I'll be delivering that as an mp3 link to expedite delivery! You've all waited long enough. Anyone who wants it in CD form, please contact me and I'd be glad to take care of that for you!
I will be putting together an iPad version of the book with the Read Along audio in the near future. I'll also be putting up a YouTube video of the first act of the story with audio and some animation in the next few months, just to help drive interest. Check the blog or join my mailing list to find out more!
For any friends or family who sees your copy and might like their own, please send them to http://www.dsedwards.com/buy.html
Last but not least, I'm working on a new book. I'll be putting that project up on Kickstarter, too, but I'm going to wait until I'm closer to finished this time! If you'd like to keep up with this project, please check out the blog or reply here to join my new mailing list! It's going to be very infrequent (the blog will be my main form of communication), so please join to find out when my new book will be available! I'll try not to bug you very often.
