We Did It!
Guess what? Our Kickstarter project, Secret Cuts, is a go!
Thanks to your support, as of Tuesday afternoon we were fully funded. As I write this on Friday afternoon, with 3 hours to go, we're even beyond our goal with 103% funding.
Which means, next week I'll begin interviewing farmers and law enforcement, reviewing police reports, and talking up our project.
In the meantime, here's an interview from Interlochen Public Radio's weekly show, Points North.
Give a listen, and if you have any suggestions on who might have insight into this story, who I should interview, or theories on the crime, pass those ideas along.
Kickstarters, you are terrific!
