Update #4

New Reward!


There's only a week left to go and to try and push for the funds to cover the website ( now, I've added a new reward!  For a $10 donation you'll receive a button with the image from Shortly Thereafter's cover!  

If you've already donated more than $10, I'll include a button with your cover print/poem, so don't worry.  If you've donated under $10, you've already got my eternal gratitude, but if you want a spiffy pin to go with that gratitude so you can show off your support on your favorite bag, go ahead and up that donation.  

I reached my original funding goal in a week's time, so let's see what we can do with one more week.  Please keep helping to spread the word!
