Yes, we're familiar with matters of budgeting. On my personal account (this is Richard here) I've had to be careful how much I commit, because there's a startling amount of fun stuff showing up on Kickstarter. It looks like a lot of people who did projects I enjoyed as a kid are launching "sequels" or "revivals" of one form or another, and if I backed every project at the level I REALLY wanted then I might as well just give up on running our own!
Indeed, just do what you can. All the publicity you've given us is reward enough!
I'm sorry. I considered upping to $15, but I went a lot over my (small) Kickstarter budget last month, and I'd rather stay under it this month.
Isaac Asimov, you say? I had his books on my shelf growing up (this is Richard S. Hetley here), but then I had all the OTHER big authors on my shelf, and I don't think I've read much by him. I do know that he celebrated his birthday on January 2, though, because of a silly cartoon proposing it as a cause for celebration post-holidays.
I checked with Paul Gresty, and he likewise says he hasn't read up. Do you have particular recommendations?
I can solidly recommend the mysteries if Isaac Asimov as someone who absolutely positively plays fair with the reader.
It will help, absolutely! Pledge drives are made of individual people pledging an individual amount: if you can afford to raise yours, then please do!
And yes, we are scouring Kickstarter for interesting projects. Folks often do "Other Projects You May Enjoy" sections in their updates, so if you know anyone who might be willing to share airtime with us, feel free to ask them! (And let us know, too, of course.)
Nice update. While I considered upping from $5 to $15 (and still might do it), I'm not sure it will do much good.
If you love Sherlock Holmes, have you seen Steampunk Holmes (http://www.steampunkholmes.com/)? I love this kind of crossovers and pledges a little to that Kickstarter when it ran (I never pledge a lot, I just don't have the budget for that, and I like too many projects).
