I wanted to give backers of this book an update on how well it's doing and to thank you again for your support of it all that time ago.
First: late last year the book got me invited onto the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast to talk about. It's one of the most listened to podcasts on the Internet and it shot the book onto bestseller lists on Amazon and the feedback has been great.
If you're interested in listening to those episodes, you can do it here. We recorded them live at New York Comic-Con last week. You'll hear me tell stories about how the book came together and stories from the book. It's a great lot of fun and since you all made it possible, I thought you'd like to listen in.
As for other things going on, there are two different Patreon campaigns that you should check out if you liked this project. The first is my personal Patreon campaign which is subsidizing my writing of short stories. You can visit that page here.
The other is a Silence in the Library Patreon that will be curating short stories for a monthly e-magazine and the funds will be used to pay the writers. The first issue should be coming by fall and it will have some great surprises in it, so lock in your support now.
Thanks again for everything you did to help me get A Children's Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination off the ground and all you continue to do to support me as a writer and Silence in the Library as a publisher. --Bryan Young
