Thank you and moving forward!
Just over two weeks late with this update, but thank you!
The total amount raised is $614.69--shattering my original goal of $200! Just today I received documentation granting me the rights to reprint lyrics from Leonard Cohen's song "Hallelujah." The original goal of this Kickstarter turned into progress toward legally publishing a kick-ass and touching written montage!
The rest of your so generously donated dollars will help to ensure a fine marketing program for The Perfect Girl Drinks Root Beer. These past two weeks have been spent producing a book trailer, and I'm planning monthly releases until publication. These will likely include simple chapter releases on my website, but will culminate in ad space on sites such as GoodReads.
I received the first draft of the cover art today, and I must say, it's pretty fantastic. The artist is making a few small tweaks, and then I'll be posting it on the official The Perfect Girl Drinks Root Beer Facebook page tomorrow. You can check this out right here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Perfect-Girl-Drinks-Root-Beer/314022918661622. I update it weekly with word and page counts as I make progress writing, so be sure to give it a Like if you want to keep up to date!
I truly appreciate everyone who donated! Whether monetarily, or word of mouthily, thank you for believing in me and my project! I will be sending out backer reward surveys soon. Kickstarter popped a message up that suggested I wait to obtain addresses and various other pieces of backer information, and I have to do everything pop-ups tell me to do. But expect these surveys soon!
Once more, a great big thank you to everyone!
