THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who has donated, shared and promoted this Kickstarter!  We are so very excited to have reached our primary goal yesterday!

What does this mean?

Reaching our primary goal means that we can go to print with the book, so everyone's orders will be filled!  Hooray!

What's next?

Now that we have a whole 11 days left to continue our fundraising, here is what will happen-

We might actually recover some of our costs for creating the book, meaning money we paid for photo rights, illustrations, and services!  Woo!

After we recover some of these costs, the rest of this fundraiser $ will be donated to The Burlesque Hall of Fame Legends Challenge, which helps to fund travel expenses for Burlesque Legends who want to come to the BHOF Weekender.  Additionally, we hope to donate swag to the Weekender Volunteer/Performer gift bags!

What should happen now?  

Continue to spread the word, continue to pledge!  Anything we make over our goal and costs only helps the BHOF Legends Challenge more!  Plus, anyone placing a preorder for the book here will be saving 25-40% off the cover cost after this challenge, so, if you want the book, order it HERE and now!  

Thank you again!  Let's see how far we can take The Pastie Project together!

      If you're open to suggestions, you might want to send copies to the Library of Congress/National Archive, your alma mater's library, and maybe to the library of colleges in areas known for burlesque. That way, the research continues - there are always grad students looking for unique paper topics, after all.
