We did it! 100% funded in 9.5 hours!!?!
Was that a replay *KNOCK* I heard?! As I write this, the Drop Target Omnibus Kickstarter is 100% funded, only nine and a half hours after launching! What an amazing start to this project! Thank you all so much for backing the project on its first day.
Jon and I set up a video chat session half an hour before launch this morning, so that we could coordinate all our social media and blog posts, and just generally nerd out together. It was so heartwarming watching the first flood of backers come in, and to see so many friends amongst their numbers. You all are the best!
Our plan moving forward is to have weekly posts (on Wednesdays) giving you a glimpse into our design process and to highlight some of the other amazing people that have been involved with the Drop Target Omnibus.
These will be public posts through all of November, and then when the Kickstarter funding period wraps up on December 1st, all future posts will be for backers only. If you have any friends who want to follow along with the fun, but don't need a book, we set up a $1 tier which will give people access to those posts.
Please let us know if you have any questions via Kickstarter's message system (Click on the red button D.T. Pub icon in the top left of the project page, scroll down and use the "Contact Me" button at the bottom). If a lot of folks have the same question, we'll set up a FAQ.
Other than that, we're just gonna spend the next 29 days getting the word out to as many people as possible! Thanks in advance for any help spreading the word via social media, word of mouth, etc. !
Alec ( & Jon! )
