WE MADE IT! YAY! I LOVE YOU ALL!
I am so happy to tell you that at 4:09 this morning, we officially crossed the 100%-funded line. You cannot know how thankful I am to each and every one of you who made this happen. And we still have 9 days to go!
As a sort of celebratory toast, I'm giving you all a free download of "Sometimes I Wish I Had A Gun." Think of it as a musical glass of champagne that I'm raising in your honor. This is over and above and separate from any pledge rewards -- it's just a tiny token of my enormous appreciation. I'll also be giving the download to any new backers through the end of the campaign.
Each of you will be getting a separate code for the download (with instructions) so it may take me a few days to get them all out to you. I'll be starting from the first backers (June 9) and working forward.
I still have personal thank you messages to write to our most recent backers, but I just couldn't wait to tell you.
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH - THANK YOU!
