WishKeeper Assignment Certificates and More!
With only 8 days remaining on the campaign, things are heating up. I have found myself quite busy with responding to you and your emails, congratulatory remarks and messages. I'm loving every second of it. The backers are still pouring in, and I could not be more grateful.
WishKeeper Certificates of Assignment!
The real work is just beginning. While the book has already been edited and formatted for eBook conversion, the print and hard cover conversion process is just about complete. In between conversion processes, I have started the creation of individual WishKeeper assignments!
This is the most fun I have had since I started writing The WishKeeper years ago. 16 lucky people who pledged at the Death Wish Pledge Level ($100) will receive a Certificate of Keeper Assignment, and be assigned their very own WishKeeper! Below is an example of the content within each Certificate. Note that this is merely a mock-up and the final version will be designed and created by the lovely and talented, Abigail Larson (http://www.abigaillarson.com/).
Abigail is not only a wonderful person, but an amazing artist. I have included an example of her artwork so you can see what kind of artistic style the Certificates will have. This particular assignment was done for a wonderful little WishMaker named, Grace Becker. See the Keeper Certificate image at the end of this post!
My friend Mary (Mary Doodles on YouTube) created fan art of a scene from the book. If you haven't seen it yet, here it is. Please watch! It's wonderful. Mary is wonderful. And I'm beyond excited to get the word out about The WishKeeper in this fun and entertaining way. And a big "hello and welcome" to Mary's fans and new WishKeeper backers! You guys are awesome.
Also, a dear friend and amazing comic book artist, Nathan Maurer, is creating a comic-styled piece of fan art based on my book! At the $20, The Captain pledge level, you will receive a paperback copy of the book along with Nathan's WishKeeper-based artwork. If you haven't heard of CaptainOsaka, then you're missing out. Please see his Tumblr page for more awesome details on Nathan and his comic, Double K! http://captainosaka.tumblr.com/ Below is an example of his artwork:
Thank you, everyone, for helping me create a successful Kickstarter campaign! There is still time to tell your friends and share the WishKeeper love. I have stretch funding goals I would like to reach that will help further develop the book and its release.
