All I need is you!
So, we've got a few days to raise over 80% of the total funds for this project. As the title of this post implies, at this point I think it will take a miracle for Bursts of Light to actually happen.
But it's not impossible.
I appreciate all that you, my backers, have already done. Each and every one of you are amazing, and I really appreciate the support and faith you've given me.
And to anyone who wants to see this project succeed and hasn't pledged, this is your moment. If you're holding back because you are planning on submitting a story and are worried about conflict of interest... well, no offence, but that seems a bit silly to me. There's no pledge level that would let you buy your way into the book, or your could donate anonymously. And if it doesn't happen, I won't be accepting any stories, let alone yours.
If nothing else, this is the time to mention it to your friends again, or increase your donation if you can, or pester kickstarter or boing boing or any well-regarded internet personality who you think might get behind the project to mention it on their blog, facebook, or twitter. Maybe you'll have better luck than I have.
