WE MADE IT!!!
In less than 48 hours we hit our goal and are now funded. Fantastic!!
Thank you everyone for the support!!
Now our goal is to keep going and get enough to finish that first large room and get the computer system up and running that will allow indie writers to submit books to our store for sale. So off we go toward the next stretch goal.
And for those of you who were wondering, with every reward, we will be including some of the nifty bookmarks that say "North by Northwest Books... Give bookmarks something to do."
And we are really excited that already we will be able to help some schools and libraries around the country get books they can use for their shelves. We hope to be able to help a lot more before this is all finished.
So thank you, everyone, for the wonderful support. I hope we can keep this going so please spread the word if you get a chance.
Dean, Kris, and the fantastic staff at North by Northwest Books and WMG Publishing.
