Next stop - Jupiter & Thoughts on Printing
I hope everyone's had a good Christmas. I seem to have put on about 4kg in 4 days myself so I shall not be eating until January.....
Funding has been ticking over nicely and we are a shade from the halfway point. Our funding graphic shows us at the other side of Saturn (what a big planet that is) and approaching Jupiter. Please keep spreading the word so we can make this project happen!
I want to talk briefly about what happens when and if we get close to our total - printed copies. Rather than say '£xxx is needed as a stretch goal to make printed copies' - I want to use a print-on-demand service, so all we need to do is be able to beat our goal by enough to be able to fulfill any demand for actual first edition copies of the book - that number obviously changes depending on how many people want a copy; since we can pretty much make 1 or 1,000 for the same price-per-book as far as I can work out. So it would be great if we can get up there before the end to give people time to upgrade from e-books to printed books if they prefer those. Any printed copies that are created thereafter will not be 'first edition' so pledge backers will have something unique.
In other news - the main Elite: Dangerous KS broke the million pound barrier yesterday, I've not commented much recently due to the festive break - but I've been lurking and watching the figures. It's looking in great shape too, just remember what's left to raise is now less than we raised in a single day back at the start, we can do this!
Spread the word!
