You did it! You took this project all the way from a measly 0% (psh, why that's hardly a percentage at all), all the way up to (and over) 100% funding. To state the obvious... this means it's going to happen!
I'm going to get everything moving this week so I can get everyone their stuff as quickly as possible, and once the timer runs out I'll be getting in touch with all the contributors to get you your download links and sort of the details of where I should send things, what exactly everyone wants, etc.
In the meantime, any extra contributions are going to be put into expanding the design and artwork concepts into more elaborate packaging. I need to do a little research to see how much extra I'd need to raise to do this, but it would be amazing to be able to include a lyrics booklet! So if you haven't contributed yet, please still do.
And I can't say this enough times: THANK YOU to everyone who has made this happen. I wasn't sure it was going to be possible, but the fact that so many people stepped up to show their support for my music means the world to me.
