Thanks for your support!
I'd like to thank everyone for their support in reaching the funding goal of $6K. I can't believe this goal has been reached in just 5 days! I thought I might be setting a conservative initial goal, but I'm still amazed at the number of people who have backed this project. Thank you!
Your support has inspired me to think bigger and do more, plus new backers are still discovering this project. So, I wanted to take this opportunity to communicate a few stretch goals:
- Stretch Goal 1, $15K: Increasing Availability On Other Platforms
- Stretch Goal 2, $20K: Improving Accessibility
- Stretch Goal 3, $30K: A Third Book In This Series
Stretch Goal 1, $15K: Increasing Availability On Other Platforms
Stay tuned for new rewards, geared toward backers who would like to see the book on other platforms.
Stretch Goal 2, $20K: Improving Accessibility
People use computers in many different ways. I'd like to provide this content in a way such that anyone can access it for whatever reason, regardless of their ability or disability. I've always had plans to improve the accessibility of these books over time, but Kickstarter funding will allow me to make accessibility improvements (such as better interaction with screen readers, and closed captioned video) available sooner than later.
Accessibility improvements will ship as an update to the books distributed through the iBooks Store, so everyone who already owns a copy will receive an updated version as soon as it's available.
For other book makers in the same boat, I'd like to refer you to WWDC 2012 Session 518: Improving Accessibility in Books. The information presented in this session will definitely put you on the right path to making your books accessible to everyone!
Stretch Goal 3, $30K: A Third Book In This Series
I think the title here says it all! :-)
If this Kickstarter reaches $30K, I feel comfortable stating that there will definitely be a third book in this series. And remember, backers of this project will help choose the topic of this third book in an upcoming poll. I'm looking forward to hearing your opinions, and to creating a brand new book!
Thanks again to everyone who has supported this project,
