12 days and $870 to go!
It's incredible: The Recollection of Trees is almost 69% funded!
This has been both the longest and shortest couple of weeks of my life. The only thing I can compare it to is the blur of the last few weeks of pregnancy followed by the first few weeks of motherhood. Key word: coffee. ha ha ha
I continue to be filled with wonder at what is happening. This might be the best lesson yet in enjoying the journey toward the destination. Every time another person says, "Yes, I believe in you. I'll back you. I'll tell my friends about you," I can see another sparkling yellow brick along the winding road. :)
I have contacted dozens of major (and several minor) newspapers, as well as radio and TV stations in Michigan, so I am hoping a couple more will take an interest, especially since the story takes place in Michigan. I'm not saying I'm the next Twilight mom (that level of success would be FANTASTIC), but I do know that fans of her work have visited Forks, WA. One of my personal hopes/fantasies is that people will want to visit the places I wrote about too. Places like Torch Lake, Cascades Hills, The Parlour, Jackson High, the Michigan Theatre, and McCourtie Park. I'd love for other people to discover how great it is here in the mitten!
So, if you know anyone at any local news outlet, or want to write a letter to the editor, I'd love the support! They can find the official press release at http://sadiefrancisskyheart.com/about/news-reviews/ or contact me through this kickstarter project.
Thank you again for your inspirational support through sharing and backing my dream!
