Keep faith and you will succeed, brave adventurer!

Risks and challenges

This is my 9th project on Kickstarter. Each campaign is a learning experience. And I've learned a lot up to this point. This book is 90% done at this point and should be complete before the end of this Kickstarter campaign. We're just raising money to go to print. I'll be working with a printer that I have used many times for many different projects. There is always the possibility of unforeseen delays in the production process, but we've tried very hard to account for that in our timeline and I am very confident we will ship all rewards on time or early.
