WE made it!
Wow, WE (Asaad, Sharon, and all of our backers) made it to 100%!
We could not have done this without the support of each and every one of you. We've been so humbled by your support and generosity and so very grateful to all the contributions, suggestions, and shares. Thank you for helping us to realise get to this point on our journey. We wouldn’t be celebrating this day or shouting your name off our balcony (without any care for the condescending and judgmental looks in our cats’ eyes) if not for you.
We also want to update you on the status of the manuscript. It has been sent to the professional editor; a process that will take several weeks. Meanwhile, we've asked a young artist (Asaad's sister!) to paint front and back covers that are more reflective of the novel’s content.
In the coming days and weeks we will keep you apprised or our progress and may request your suggestions and recommendations. If you haven't had a chance to check out our Facebook page yet, you can do so at: https://www.facebook.com/IshmaelofSyria/
