Woo hoo!

About an hour ago we hit our goal of $12,000! I was busy tabling Wiscon for PM Press and my phone decided not to "ping" with the last several hours' activity, so I thought it was a slow day... but I was wrong! So glad to be wrong! Now that we've hit the goal I can start to focus on the logistics of making this happen. There's a cover to design, a title to be chosen (ideas? email title@geekradical.org), contracts to sort out. But there's so much we can do if we get more backing. We can guarantee that the ebook edition will have everything the print version has. We can pay to have some international stories translated to English, making the book's reach even wider in terms of voices and perspectives. Also, we can potentially add more stories and offer more bang for your buck. I'd love to be able to put out a substantive tome of stories, offering all manner takes on feminism. We've got 5 days left... plenty of time to add to our total and make this bigger and better (and we already planned for "sizable" and "awesome"). We have over 400 backers now; I wish I could meet every one of you and thank you in person. If you're at Wiscon, come to the dealer's room and say hi! I'll be staffing the PM Press table all weekend. Thank you all for your support. I knew there was a community to support this project and I'm so glad to see that in action. Take care! jef
