New CD 75% funded, last day for Jo Walton poetry challenge, New Add-On

Posted by Ada Palmer (Creator)

Hello, friends of Sassafrass.

I'm happy to report that the Kickstarter for the new "Stories & Stone" album is 75% funded.  I wanted to remind you that today is the last day for Jo Walton's poetry challenge, so if we can make that last 25% by the end of tonight then she will write a new poem about Hod for us.  I really hope we make it, so please spread the world!

Also good news for those of you who did not get the libretto as part of your original Sundown Backer Rewards packages.  We have just added a new Add-On reward for the "Stories & Stone" Kickstarter - backers who support the project at any level can add just $10 to your pledge to get a PDF e-book download of the libretto, with all the lyrics of the Norse music plus the script and 90 pages of author's notes about the production and historical sources.

Interested in a physical printed copy of the libretto?  It looks like we have only one left at the moment, but if anyone wants to order it as an add-on for the new Kickstarter, just send us a message.

Meanwhile, we are working away on sound editing the Secret Album, our most exciting (and popular) reward for backers of the new project, containing live recordings from recent concerts including last summer's Sassafrass Trickster & King "Norse Hour" hosted by George R. R. Martin at the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, with poetry readings by Jo Walton included. The "Secret Album" will only be made available to backers of the new project, so we hope you'll join us and enjoy!
