We're not done yet!!! More books (maybe)!!!
Hey there Singularity Supporters. With just under 5 days to go in our Kickstarter campaign, over 900 supporters and nearly 240% of our funding goal in our futuristic hyper-piggybank, you may think that we here at Singularity&Co are content to glide towards the goal like a player from the robotic leagues on the maglev track between third and home. But we're not done yet!
We've spent the past few days cataloging many, many spectacular books, most of which were new to us if in fact quite old in reality, as well as crunching the numbers using some very advanced hyper dimensional math. We've also scanned, converted, cleaned up more than one "test" books, and done most of the legwork on clearing two titles for publication (so far). Based on that, we've got an offer that not even an android could refuse:
If you all help spread the word, and get us to $45k, we're willing to step it up on our end, and commit to clearing and releasing an additional 6 books in the next 12 months (if not more).
To be completely honest, we're already planning to step up the pace of releases, but if we have that much in the bank (not counting our unbelievably generous matching funds offer), we can very comfortably commit to rescuing more books, sooner. That means that our $10 supporters would be able to count on 18 books for their money, and our $25 supporters can count on 18 books in the first year.
If you or anyone you know is on the fence about our campaign, please keep in mind that while you will be able to find our releases on all the major publishing platforms, as well as our website, supporting this Kickstarter is the only way to be sure that you will be able to receive all of our releases for a year ($10) or forever ($25) for virtually nothing.
So spread the word, and help us reach our new and improved goal!
In the meantime check out some of the hundreds and hundreds of books we've been cataloging in preparation for the rescue effort to begin in earnest, as well for as the opening of the Singularity&Co bookshop, which is on track to happen in the next 45 days both online, and in DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY.
