Phenomenal (Who Wants Dinosaurs?!)
The creativity and collaboration keeps coming.
I've been getting amazing input for bigger stories, interactive maps, games, resources, animation, live-action, stage presentations, radio plays, audio books, international translations, merchandising... You love how this world is coming together and are working to broaden it, enrich it. Your ideas are as valuable as your pledges, because we're doing this together. Thank you!
1500% funded. And you want me to keep writing. Alrighty then.
I'm committing to writing a fourth book, involving Mary Anning, the famous 19th century dinosaur hunter, and the Wollstonecraft girls in a Verne/Conan Doyle-inspired adventure.
Because of your support, I'll have the time to do this. As for how and when to make this available, I'll have to get back to you on that. I can look at a calendar and know what I can write when, but I don't yet know about availability of the rest of the team, but I promise to keep you posted through to – and after – the end of the campaign.
We're half way through the campaign, and I can't believe we got the green light just two weeks ago. You are all absolutely amazing.
NEW PLEDGE LEVELS: By request, I'll be setting up "Library Plus" levels for the Library Sponsor package PLUS the $125 and $250 awards. But I need to make some tea first.
Thank you. Ada & Mary thank you, too!
