You did it. O.O
The "No Dominion" campaign just passed $17,00. You, my readers, are paying me more than any New York City publisher has paid me up front for a book. This *blows my mind*. To little tiny bits. Itty bitty bits. I will have to spend rather a lot of time collecting all those bits so I can write you TWO NOVELLAS, FOUR SHORT STORIES, 3 chapters of a book that doesn't exist, and, um, a partridge in a pear tree, I guess. :) Seriously: the wordcount we're looking at here is right around 90K, which is absolutely no question about it a book's worth of words.
Actually, the first short story is done, and it'll be landing in your mailboxes tomorrow afternoon when the campaign closes. So let me take this moment to remind you what you're getting for your buy-in!
At $5: 2 short stories, the novella, a digital download calendar
At $10: the above & another short story
At $25: the above, a 4th short story & a second novella.
At $30, the above + a physical copy of the calendar
At $75, the above + a signed chapbook of the cover art photo shoot
At $100, the above + an 8×10 signed poster of the cover art AND a copy of the limited edition trade paperback
At $250, the above + a 2012 CE Murphy Dublin photography calendar
The "guess what number it'll end at" contest has now closed (so nobody can totally game it at the last second). Guesses that come in after this email goes out won't be counted, so I hope you got your guess in.
Me, I'm going to be sitting here hitting the reload button every minute or two, as my husband, who is standing beside me gawking at the screen too, keeps asking me to do. :)
