90 days from today we should have a finished manuscript. Funding covers costs to get to publication!
The previous funding drive was for production costs- the paper, pencils, inks, pens and other such necessities to create the final book. My inestimable thanks to all who have already supported this project.
By the time this drive funds to the account, it should be time to begin the push to secure a publisher and that will take a LOT more money.
I've set the goal at $250, because I know my patrons can definitely beat that amount, though the goal is $1,250.00, which will be enough to cover making the necessary pre-publication copies of the finished manuscript and mailing them out to publishers who wish to review them in physical form.
As with the previous funding drive, all contributors will be listed in the book credits, whether you put in $1 or $1000! Every little bit counts and helps, so if you're behind me but can't afford more, toss in $1 just to tell me you're there. You cannot imagine how important knowing my work is appreciated by people is to inspiring me to just keep on plugging away here.
All of the thank you gift prints will be hand signed and dated on the back- the original signature is in the print, but I will personally put my hands to your piece to sign it.
If you pledge at the $500 level you'll be getting a full set of 26 prints, all of the major illustrations for the book. Every one of them will be signed, they'll be in something nice to keep them safe en route to you and I'll write you a personal letter of thanks and tell you the story of how this book came to be as well.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
