Week 1: We're on our way!
Today marks the one week anniversary of our campaign launch, and I thought you’d like to know what’s been going behind the scenes. (Hint: a LOT.)
First, and most importantly: we got our first 29 backers, including YOU! I could sing songs of my gratitude, but since my voice doesn’t carry across the internet, I just want to say: thank you. For your trust in this cause, or belief in this book, or whatever it was that made you click that little green button - thank you.
…We also got picked as a Project We Love by Kickstarter this week, which makes us feel just that more special inside ;)
About the book itself: I’m ordering the first test copy of The Golden Child from our selected printing firm tomorrow, which means I’ll have it in my hands before the weekend. (Woohoo!) When that happens, I was thinking of doing a Kickstarter Live event where I read bits and pieces of the book itself - would you be interested? Let me know, and also what time would suit you best (weekends? Afternoons? The witching hour?).
I’m also trying to get the word out to as many people (particularly mums) as possible, through Facebook groups, blogs, forums etc. A huge shout-out to Lisa at Knocked Up Abroad and Jill at Little Bear Abroad who both shared news of the campaign on their social media accounts this week! <3
That’s about it for now. If you want to know anything in particular, just send me a message and I’ll get back as soon as I can. (Make that as soon as my kids let me.)
In the meantime, please, please share the news of The Golden Child with the people in your life you think would like it (or let me know if there’s a blog or website you think would be interested in writing about this campaign). Let’s lift mothers higher through stories, together.
