Holy moly y'all! We're over halfway funded and still have most of the month to go! This is awesome! You are awesome!

I have the preliminary pin design!!! Here it is:

Pins! Omg Pins!
Pins! Omg Pins!

Keep in mind that this is very preliminary and may not reflect the final design or look (though I hope it will cause it looks pretty dang cool). They'll be 1.25" and the black is glittery. Let me know what you think!

On a personal note, this project means so much to me and I am so grateful that you all have joined me on this ride. As someone with mental illness, it's often hard to believe that the things I care about are worth believing in and you are showing me that this is something definitely worthwhile and needed. I only hope that this project will do others good as well. Every one of you is helping me take those steps towards making a difference.

When I came up with the concept for this anthology last year, I had hoped to find a way to get this book into at-risk shelters and other places where it can do a lot of good. Unfortunately Kickstarter doesn't allow creators to have campaign stuff go to charities (and their reasoning makes sense). However, if you as a backer wanted to back at the Sorcerer level and then donate the second book to a good cause, I definitely couldn't stop you. :) And if you as a backer wanted to share this campaign and say where you were intending on donating the second book (and tag me on facebook, twitter, or instagram) I would be absolutely delighted to hear where you'd like these books to go.

Ok! That's all from me for now. New awesome announcements coming soon though!

      You are allowed to do donations of product just not donations of dollars. Usually it’s either a pledge that’s “buy one donate x” or a stretch goal “if we reach x we will donate y books to z”. Contact me and I can point you in the direction of a number of large successful Kickstarters which included donations.
