Update #7

98% Funded... after 9 Days!

7 comments

We had another amazing past two days! Nearly 40 new backers, several backers INCREASED their pledges, and lots of great shares and enthusiasm on Facebook and Twitter.

Plus: my guest post and spicy North Indian recipe on Scissors & Spice went live.

Thanks, Lynn! And thank you to Deva at Fresh Pastry Stand for connecting us! You both rule! Artsy Vintage Veggieness forevah!

We are now at 98% funded... after only 9 days!

The big question: How Soon is 100%?

And who is going to be the backer that brings us over the $6500 mark?

It's practically inevitable we're going to blast past our goal and continue bringing in generous funding and pre-orders of the cookbook!

I'm setting up another meeting with the printer next week to discuss expanding and improving the initial print run and to get estimates for printing a German edition of the cookbook. I've also been making arrangements for a speedy translation schedule to get the German cookbook and ebook ready sooner.

What happens if we pass our funding goal?

Many of you have asked about Stretch Goals. I expect to officially announce them very soon.

I have some great ideas already. Got a suggestion? Send me a message!
