Update #2

Trying one more time.

Comment

Hello to all and thank you ahead of time for your attention. I just launched my second KickStarter program and once again, I need your help. Please, spread the word as best you can and let everyone know how great a cause it is...Yes, it really is a great cause Mel...stop laughing. Anyway, any help you can give me getting the word out would be greatly appreciated.

To all those who helped me with the previous program, thank you again SO very much. Your efforts were the main reason I am trying a second project. Please, don't leave me now :)

And of course, to all those who previously pledged, I hope your still interested and willing to be a part.

OK, review the program and tell a friend...or 20.

Best regards,
Ty

Update #1

My sincere thanks.

Comment

While the hours tick away before the deadline on this project strikes, it has become apparent, mostly by a the "You're being too greedy" comments I have gotten, that this particular KickStarter program is...more then likely...not going to be successful. With that in mind, and the many comments I have gotten about my personal greed, and oddly the quality of the video, I am going to revamp the program and create a new one for this series that requires a much smaller pledge total and with lower individual pledge prices as well. This will unfortunately force me to ship the books with a slower method as originally the books were being shipped 2nd Air International DHL but the cost was $59 per 3lb book and if I just eat the cost of shipping then the project has no purpose as most of the cost will go to paying for shipping and not for the project itself. I will be lowering the pledge amount per book to $100 for the regular edition and $250 for the limited edition. Also, the limited edition will have an alternate dust jacket to go with the Genuine Leather cover. Honestly, I didn't expect many to get into the limited edition books, but I wanted to give an option—other then pledging for ten books—for those who wanted to pledge a larger amount. Not out of greed...but out of a desire to pay for the printing of book two. The original $75,000 was going to go completely and 100% towards the printing of book two, and fee's/taxes, but that seems to many as too much so the new pledge total will be $10,000 and be just for the printing cost of the limited edition books. I was planning on just paying for that myself but now it seems it makes a good project pledge total. Keep in mind the Genuine Leather cover ALONE is going to cost more then the $10,000 I'm asking for so I am going to have to cover the difference myself. Any total over the $10,000 would help a lot in that cause and any amount over the printing costs will go directly to the printing costs of book two...and three if we prove so lucky.

Anyway, thank YOU, from the bottom of my heart, to all those who did pledge and showed such faith in this project. I'm sorry I wasn't able to create a project that more people responded to and I pray you stick with me on this next project. As they say, if at first you don't succeed...
