How sweet it is. Courtney's Mamma, Amy; Nathan's Mamma, Melinda; and Maddie's Mamma, Susan, have all recently pledged. Go Woodward War Eagles! I love you. How will we ever make it next year without our cutie-pies? We will have to create the Boo-Hoo Club.
We are up to $1635! Another pledge for $200 may be coming today. We are getting closer and closer to the goal of $3000.
Thank you to all my lifelong friends from Westminster. How many jams have you gotten me in and out of in my day? Love you true.
Thank you all my CC friends! Thank you for always believing in me no matter what kind of Calamity Shacks I really am. Thank you, Oatman's, for getting the whole family on board. Thank you Maddie and Avery. Thank you Pettine's. Rob, Cathy, Pete, Sam – I loves me my CC friends. Love you too much.
Thank you, McClatchey's. Good night! What can I say?
Thank you Boston babies for saying that you're going to weigh in. You make me feel very proud.
Thank you writer and editor friends, John, Adam, Florrie, Susan, and John. Thank you for helping to feed the unwieldy lake.
Thank you, my precious sons, Matt and Shack.
Also: This week is Character Week. If someone you love wants to pledge anonymously, you can do so by pledging as your favorite fictional character (or any character, for that matter). Kickstarter does not allow anonymous pledges but they DO allow you to pledge as a fictional character or even pledge under a made-up name.
Finally, I am lovin' making you characters in the book. Floods me with memories and puts a huge smile on my face. Most fun I've had with the manuscript yet.
When we reach the goal, Don't Sit Here will become a book coming your way in due time. Look for YOU.
PS Park Bench scene to be uploaded hopefully by Thursday. (Hopeless techno-peasant waiting for my friend and webmaster April to come back from her daughter's wedding. Stay tuned.)
