Update #14

Can we make less than $3k in less than 3 days? Pro rates are close!

Comment

In the past 3 days we've taken in an astounding $2300 in new and raised pledges! Just a couple of hours ago we crossed the $11,000 threshold, leaving us needing less than $3000 to reach our $14k stretch goal!

Today, a number of generous authors and editors with large followings on Twitter helped us spread the word with tweets and retweets: Elizabeth Bear, Jay Lake, Tobias Buckell, Diane Duane and Ellen Datlow. Even Tor.com tweeted it!

The closer we get to CG Magazine paying pro rates, the more excited we get - and the more afraid we'll get close-but-not-quite there! We only have until 5pm on Friday to make it, and $2964 is still a lot of money.

Please help us in these last few days for a final, huge push. We don't think anyone wants to come this far for close-but-not-quite! Let's make a zine pro-rate so everyone can enjoy the awesome!

DFTBA!
