Half way there in less than 48 hours!
Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm about this project. The discussions and media inquiries about extending this story into sequels and other spaces have been incredibly exciting, but I'm not going to get ahead of myself. Optimistically, I've been moving my schedule around in May so I can dedicate the time to just write.
I know some of you are responding to this project outside Kickstarter, and that some have Paypal money but not cc money, or are broke right now but still want to help, and that help is amazing and lovely and valuable and welcome.
So how can you help aside from pledging a donation? Talk about the project. Share it on Facebook, Tweet it. E-mail the link to your friends. Tell the girls in your life who might like the book when it's done, so they can engage their own imaginations about what kind of adventures *they'd* like to get up to in 1826 London. Buzz is crucial.
I'm overwhelmed that you're as excited by these characters as I am. I'm in debt to their real contributions to my life, and this is my way of honouring them.
