Celebrations and Stretch Goals!!!
Thank you is hardly sufficient!!!!! As of today, we have reached our original goal!!!!
With the amount raised I have happily hired an editor and secured an e-book cover designer. When the edits are finished I will also transition the manuscript into an E-Pub format. Once it's ready to go, I'll submit the book for a literary critique and begin work on a solid book proposal.
BUT we still have 26 days remaining! Where do we go from here?
I now have to consider the possibility of overfunding. There are so many people who believe in this project I want to do as much as I can to bring the story to as many people as possible.
I've been searching through other successful Kickstarter campaigns and each one has set a "Stretch Goal" once the original goal is secured. These stretch goals are big dreams and may offer new opportunities for the project. So I decided to take a deep breath and follow the format.
Setting a new stretch goal of $7,000:
Will allow me to hire marketing help.
Print a soft cover limited edition of the book.
Because I am incredibly grateful I absolutely want to share this success with each of you.
If we can reach the stretch goal in the next 26 days:
For those who donated/donate $50 and above: I will print and send a signed soft cover limited edition of the book.
For those who donated/donate $1-$49 --- I will unlock specialty bonus gifts for you as well! (I'll announce these once we reach the $5k mark)
The most important step right now is continuing to spread the word and maintain a buzz about this book so when it is put into the public's hands it creates the most impact.
This book is meant to help those struggling within the health care system and expose the injustices occurring every day.
Every single dollar you have and will pledge is helping this very important cause.
Please continue spreading the word and know even a $1 pledge makes a difference!
Together we are creating positive effective change!
