WE MADE IT, with five days to spare!
So this happened. And then fifteen minutes later
Cadence & Slang Is Funded, Via iPhone Screenshots
(Cascade and Tettnang are hop varietals.)
Hilariously, two backers were already in town for the holiday weekend, and we had already planned to grab a beer with them. So I show up, big bear hugs all around, I order one of these, &c. &c. Which is why I didn't update last night.
So: we did it. Cadence & Slang will see the light of day by the end of 2010. And who's the publisher? You. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your generosity and faith in this. Thank you for promoting this. Thank you for telling your friends and getting excited about this. I can't wait to show you my work, and I hope to keep you involved in the whole process.
But there looms the question: what happens if we raise more money than $9,800? This isn't rhetorical: we're already almost at $11,000. I'm going to get a few more quotes from the printer regarding spot colors, process color, maybe even making the book hardcover.
We've already made our goal, which means I get to sleep a lot better. But we can always improve the product with more funding. We have three more days to raise enough to cover even better printing, better paper stock, and a better cover. I plan to make no profit from this book's publication. Every single dollar pledged between now and Friday goes straight to the book.
So let's finish this with a bang!
