After some (ahem) exciting and instructive moments with the printers, Luci has arrived! And much like the anecdotes I've heard about motherhood, she's just so darn beautiful and perfect I've forgot the labor pains (AKA fixing file formats well past midnight) it took to get her here. But my delivery was 700 lbs, so, you know, top that moms.
As I hoped, the quality at which we printed these on is the minimum worthy of Sandra's brilliant illustration and I fell in love with her work all over again. I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to do this project with the support of Kickstarter because we don't have to be at the mercy of a publishing company to do what we are trying to do. I want to again thank you all for supporting us and for being a part of this platform here at Kickstarter that has done so much to free up artistic expression from its usual constraints. I know I'm not the only writer who has to reconcile the fact that she lives in a world where a ghostwritten book from a cast member of The Jersey Shore is on best-sellers list (with all respect if you are a fan!) but access to something like Kickstarter and support from folks like you makes it palatable ;-)
As we begin shipping these out this week, I sincerely hope you find something that speaks to you in this book. Feel free to drop me a line and tell me what you like and what you hate.
My very best to all of you. I'll share pictures of us at Small Press Expo and Alternative Press Expo, both of which are happening very soon!
PS: If anyone you know is interested in purchasing the book, I have it available on www.babayagabooks.com while I work out details with distributors.
