You know, I almost didn't launch this Kickstarter. I finished putting it together weeks ago but just couldn't hit the launch button. However, when I woke up Wednesday morning to see that Murder Castle had made it to the front page of Reddit, I figured there might be a slim chance it could make goal. It never even crossed my mind that it would spark so much interest! I always assumed that if anything me-related ever went viral, it would be for something embarrassing and life destroying. Whew!
I'd like to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support. Because you've backed the project and shared it with your friends on Facebook, the Kickstarter is currently at 688% of its original goal! It means a lot to know that the way I'm spending my time - sitting at home drawing all day - is not quite as silly as it sometimes feels! (OK, it's still pretty silly...)
I would like to give extra special thanks to fellow illustrator and dear friend Sam Flegal, who gave me a valuable critique on the illustration and some excellent Kickstarter tips (and a bit of moral support when I was being a big baby about whether or not to run the Kickstarter...)
Also, mega-thanks to Andy Firkus for helping me with the research on this project and for being my #1 SuperFan and saucy love interest. I couldn't have done any of this without his help.
Thanks again, I cannot wait to send you your puzzles and prints!!
Love, Holly xxxx
