We made it!
We made it! Thanks to all of you.
We are elated. Your Kickstarter donation was exactly the push we needed to respond to the momentum of 2011. We are excited to use these funds, and the planning is well underway. First Colorado Springs, CO where there is a huge military community; past bookmakers are organizing for us to return to CA, then we head to the east coast.
We will contact all of the donors about rewards in the next few days. And we look forward to being in touch with you as winter turns into spring and the library of books grows.
Again, thank you so much.
