THANK YOU AGAIN! AND PRINT!!
We wanted to send out a quick update to once again thank everyone for their extreme generosity in backing our Kickstarter project. As some/most/all of you know, we were able to raise 196% of our initial goal. That's an amazing number -- and one that tells us there's so much love and good out there. We were so excited throughout the "Kickstarter Month," but are even more excited about the process of putting together the book. Again - thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. We'll certainly be thanking each and every one of you through your rewards when those go out, but we're also eager to give hugs and high fives the next (or first) time we see you. Hopefully we'll be able to meet everyone who backed This Good World at some point to give you our proper thanks.
Now - a real update! As we mentioned in the project description, we've been working on the book for a number of months already. We've got most of the content written and compiled, so that's a HUGE chunk and many hours out of the way. We're both working extremely hard (nights and weekends, nights and weekends) and just entering into the design and editing phases of the book -- with which we're having a blast. We're working with some awesome folks to help us out and make the final product something we hope you'll all love.
One other bit of big news. Thanks to the extreme generosity and success we received via the Kickstarter campaign, we have taken another big leap and decided to do a PRINT VERSION OF THIS GOOD WORLD VOL. 1!!!! That certainly couldn't have been done without you. Now, even our dogs will be able to enjoy TGW [nom nom nom nom paper].
Humbly borrowing the words of the late/great Adam Yauch (MCA) and fellow Beastie Boys -- we don't mean to brag, we don't mean to boast, but [we think the book is going to be the] french toast.
We'll continue to share occasional updates to keep you all informed on the process of the book so you can enjoy the process along with us!
Deep amounts of love and thanks,
Gavin + Lisa
