When we first started planning Nutmeg it was the success of our Kickstarter campaign that meant we could launch it with a reasonable amount of confidence. Four hundred and twenty eight people pledged various amounts, but it basically meant we had that number of sales for Issue 1 and the funds to print it and distribute it.
As any publisher will tell you - and we were new to this game - estimating sales and therefore print runs is not an exact science. You take the risk of overestimating interest. In our case we made the mistake of underestimating the interest and we didn’t print enough copies.
So we are planning a reprint of Issue 1. Again it’s difficult to know exactly what the interest will be so we’ve decided to use the same process. This way we will not risk the future success of Nutmeg.
By pledging to buy a reprint of Issue 1 you will also be supporting future editions of Nutmeg as well as our contributors.
We are also offering the opportunity again to take out a subscription for 1-4 issues of Nutmeg.
