$8,175 and beyond

Posted by Robert Picard (Creator)

After 30 days you all raised $8,175 to help me make Practical Flask a highly polished production. Your support has been incredibly overwhelming. Thank you all so much!

Going forward, the plan has a few steps:

  • 1) Draft the content
  • 2) Get all of the supplemental code and terminal session examples together
  • 3) Make everything pretty
  • 4) Release it for the world!

I've been talking to some designers, and it looks like the final illustration project is going to consist of:

  • Some awesome cover art
  • Laptop stickers for backers who pledged over $20
  • Illustrations throughout the book

The money from the Kickstarter will be covering that illustration work, printing and shipping the pre-ordered books, getting the other goodies (stickers and postcards) produced and shipped, and paying for my groceries for a while!

Right now my focus is on writing. I want to have everything wrapped up, polished, and published in or before November 2013. I'll post periodic updates here and on my blog.

You can also follow me on Twitter [@__rlp] for small updates that may or may not have to do with the book.

Thanks again everyone!

      @Soferio Hey, things are coming along really well! I've got much of the first draft done. There's still a lot to do, but I'm still expecting to deliver in November. I'll post an update in the next couple of weeks, but for now there's just not a lot of exciting stuff going on.

      Thanks for checking in!
