We are all artists now. Here's why it's important, and here's why it's hard.

You did it, thanks

In less than 180 minutes, the mighty mighty tribe of art-makers and people who care (particularly those that read my blog) shattered my expectations and sent a message to any author who wants to make a book.

Thanks.

Seth

PS even though we hit the minimum, we're going to keep this rocking until we run out of rewards.

      Hey Seth! It's Rachel... We met in Chicago a while back at your talk - Shuling filmed, and I took still photos. I still continue to be inspired by that day, and by you. I just want to take a moment to thank you for bringing FEARLESSNESS to your art.

      This is incredible. The good stuff. Walking the path.

      Keep doing your art. Keep being the linchpin.

      Be free!

      Thanks for encouraging others to be free, too.

      Namaste,
      Rachel @ www.aliveinthefire.com

      Seth, in no small part due to inspiration from your writings, this is exactly the same business model I recently put into my comic book publishing company, which previously had been a major "traditional" print publishing company. The new role of publishers and music labels is to facilitate the need the creator has to interact with his or her fans. If we can't do that going forward, we're obsolete. Congratulations!

    5. Creator Holly L on June 18, 2012

      You inspire, you motivate, you encourage...of course I'm onboard!

    6. Creator Chris G. Baker on June 18, 2012

    7. Creator Dana Phillips Tucker on June 18, 2012

    8. Creator Jerry Charles Toops on June 18, 2012

      Thanks for breaking new ground again, Seth. I'm looking forward to where this goes. World changing stuff here!

    9. Creator Francesca Gianaris on June 18, 2012

      Your sage viewpoint, and creative mind, have given me loads of inspiration, much to contemplate and super advice. As an aspiring author myself, I'm wise enough to know to follow only THE BEST!
      Thank you Seth...YOU ROCK!

    10. Creator Maria Pergolino on June 18, 2012

      Congrats - happy to be a supporter.

      {Doing the cabbage patch dance} Go Seth, Go Seth, Go Seth!!!!

      What an amazing feeling to know that your words have inspired this showing of love. A true artist. I refer to you as one of my KoolAid makers, we have lifted our overflowing cups in agreement with the truth you speak and drank with a hardy gulp.

      Thank you for your Art Seth!

    12. Creator Joseph Ratliff on June 18, 2012

      I suppose this is why you told me to "stand by" via email when I asked you about your next book Seth... congratulations, happy to be a "Backer". :)

      I'm excited to see the digital edition.

    13. Creator Alex Garner on June 18, 2012

      I was just thinking about the number of minutes I wasted hovering between a link to buy a single book and a link to buy four copies (at about only twice the single book price). Even with me being a reader of the Domino blog from its inception, I was doing a silly mental justification dance.

      Of course it should only have taken a few seconds! Of course I'll have people to give the other three copies to! What have I read that Seth has written that I didn't enjoy or take inspiration from? At least the irony of the hesitation I just went through while thinking about backing a book about standing up and standing out was not lost on me.

    14. Creator Sallie Lee on June 18, 2012

      This is a great example of what's possible now. Thanks.

    15. Creator Ryan OLoughlin on June 18, 2012

      Wow! 90 minutes! Glad I could be a part of it. Seth, you're a rockstar!

      Seth, Linchpin turned my world upside down and opened my eyes to possibilities I could not have otherwise imagined. It is a pleasure and an honour to be a part of this great experiment, thanks for the inspiration.....Kevin
