We're into the hours now... There's no more THREE DAYS TO GO warning on the site...
As I write this there are 65 HOURS left. 65 hours to raise $30K.
Talk about NASA's seven minutes of terror!
Some good things happened in the last few hours that buoy my confidence in our success.
We got a really great article by Australian ebook maven Charlotte Harper which you can read here. Charlotte refers to THE NUMINOUS PLACE as an ebookstravaganza. Maybe I'll steal that description!
And today I was interviewed by both Huffington Post and NerdBastard, and interviews are pending with BusinessWeek and the New York Times.
Let's put it this way: A LOT CAN HAPPEN IN 65 HOURS!
The other really cool thing that happened today was a really big pledge...
Accompanying the pledge was a very supportive message from a guy who loves the project and was full of praise for what he's seen so far.
Once again—like I am every single time someone pledges money—I'm humbled and overwhelmed by the trust and faith placed in me and my team.
If anyone thinks that isn't inspiration enough to keep me working my butt off for the next 65 hours to make this a reality, they need to know that I'm even more determined than NASA.
And I'm not terrified.
