100%! Celebratory Stretch Goals!

Posted by Hunter Vargas (Collaborator)

We are 100% funded!!!! I’m literally jumping for joy!

A Few Words of Thanks

I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported this campaign and for all the positive posts, emails, and messages I’ve received. I’m truly overcome with love. 😍 Thank you all. I can’t stop smiling. 😄😄 

What’s Next? 

To be, well, brutally honest, self-publishing a book is expensive. So, let’s not stop! We still have 14 more days to go! WooHoo! I look to you, my amazing backers, to continue to spread the word (and good vibes) to your community, friends, and followers. And, to sweeten the deal… 

Stretch Goals!

If we raise 125%, I will up the quality of the book’s production value and use a higher quality paper (Mohawk Superfine has been on my wish list and, with extra funds, it can be a reality!). Not only that, but I will also print in 6 colors, which will ensure that we get the vibrant colors needed to truly will make this book pop. 

And, if we raise 150%, I will add an index and hire a professional indexer, so you can easily look up a topic for an immediate answer. 

Your continued support will help me fulfill my ultimate goal, which is to publish a book that designers and creatives will not only enjoy reading, but one that they would also be proud to hold, display, and share. 

Hot damn! I am a soon-to-be published author! WooHoo!!!!
