Hello again, thank you everyone for your support and your patience. As you know, the last kickstarter attempt of raising $5,000 was unsuccessful and no exchange of money was made. We fell just $189 short, so in many ways we really did reach an equally nice goal of $4,811 and I really, truly thank you for that. I'm humbled and amazed and grateful for all of you.
Embedded in this email is a track I did back in 2008 called "Over. Now." It's pretty appropriate for this juncture of one thing ending and another one beginning. Enjoy the song!
Here's the link to the new and improved kickstarter for the album. It features some new rewards, like The Dollar Pack, and a digital short story that I'm currently writing about Loss and Redemption.
I just made a big payment on the Under Control album yesterday, because the previous highest backers went ahead and fronted me their pledges so that I could resume working on the album. Everything is still underway and moving quickly as planned. But I need your help! With this new kickstarter, I reset the goal to the new lower amount ($2,811) which is void of the previous higher pledges. So, theoretically, if everyone pledges the same amount that you did on the first kickstarter, we will make the goal this time.
These are my NEW goals, and I need YOU in order to achieve them.
1) Retain all of my pledges from the first kickstarter. I really need you guys to stick with me on the same amount you pledged before, and we'll surely make it this time.
2) Get as many new people as possible to pledge $1.
3) Have everybody being as watchful as they can be on the last two days on Thursday July 19th and Friday July 20th, to ensure that we do what we need to in order to reach the goal before midnite on the 20th.
We can do this! Thank you for your support, and let's try this again. Please join me in.... the Kickstart Redemption.
"Under Control, don't worry it's under control... Under Control, it's alright she's under control..." - Under Control by May Hwen, the title track from the new album.
