Risks and challenges

The content of Espresso Detective #1 has all been created. It's done. I've successfully done one previous kickstarter campaign. The only challenges should be printing and distribution.

I have done my homework with the printers and made the spreadsheets to make sure everything stays on track

I do realize that there can be unforeseen problems, but I promise to be frank and open with the backers, posting updates and keeping everyone informed.

I pledge to remain caffeinated and give 100% until every single one of my wonderful backers has received their reward.
