We have met our second stretch goal, which unlocks the special $5 add-on:
Scout's digital version of the book!
You guys have made Scout very happy and she's excited to get to work drawing her take on the historical events. Today, when I told her how close we were coming to the goal, she got to work immediately. Pictured below a smiling Scout (in her favorite Totoro hood) is her rough sketch of the Lincoln Assassination.
She wants it all to be great, so she wanted to start practicing and give you a taste of what she's up to.
Below that is another peek at Erin's work from Chapter 1. There was a duel that Andrew Jackson took part in where he was shot first, not wounded mortally, took careful aim, and killed the man he was dueling. The whole story is in the book, and I wanted to give you guys a peek at what Erin did with it.
In addition to this good news, I've also switched the next few stretch goals.
Originally, Scout's portraits would be included in the print book at the $8000 stretch goal, but I thought it would be more appropriate for $6000, and the rest will move up accordingly. The feedback I've received seems to jive with the idea that everyone would like Scout's portraits of the Presidents in the books and it will help us get to $6000 even faster.
As far as how add-ons work, just add the extra price of the items you want to your pledge, and then we'll send a survey afterwards to make sure you get what you want.
Thanks again for all the support and thanks for helping spread the word!
I can't tell you how much we appreciate it.
