$10,000 and counting!
We're over $10,000! We're moving along, right on schedule.
Kickstarter gives me rough data on where people are coming from when they pledge and I'm pleased to see a wide variety of blogs and websites represented. What's even cooler is that over 25% of the money we've raised has come from some form of social media sharing by everyday people. Friends telling friends. To me, that's more important than big publicity hits. It speaks to the over 300 backers we have, the broad and consistent support we've gotten, and the community-driven nature of this campaign and the book itself. I love any kind of bottom-up organizing and this project delights me with every day, every person who comes on board.
Thank you all for spreading the word and supporting our book. I look forward to that $12,000 goal being hit and with luck, exceeded!
