VOTING RESULTS: 11th and 12th Trading Cards and TWO NEW STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED!
Well, this has been a fun 24 hours! I posted up the new stretch goals I came up with late last night and not only did many of you take the time to let me know you liked them—thank you for doing that!—we also shot up from a little over $48,000 to $53,743, blasting past two stretch goals in the process!
But first, the results of your last vote! The survey results from our tenth 24-hour voting poll are now in! The voting was a lot closer, but by the end there were two clear winners. For the 11th and 12th trading cards, you've chosen the FLUKE POWERS CARD with 311 votes and the TSUNAMI POWERS CARD with 289 votes (out of 555 total backers voting for each card!)
That means that in addition to a physical book and beautiful POWERS trading cards of Kyle, The Annihilator, Spooky Jones, Flyboy, The Platinum Priestess and Commander as well as ROMANCE trading cards for The Annihilator, Spooky Jones, Kyle and Flyboy, those of you who are pledging at the FULL CITIZEN level or above will now also receive nice, glossy 2.5" x 3.5" trading cards with powerful actions poses of the luckiest superhero alive (and Kyle's other best friend), Fluke, and that strapping force of nature (and back-up leader of the team), Tsunami, which will include fascinating details about their abilities on the back of each card.
You're now going to be getting twelve bonus cards with your books! WOO HOO!
In addition to that, all backers will get access to digital versions of these cards. And the powerful, full-color art for these cards will also be 11" x 14" print options for those getting physical prints! WOO HOO!
But wait, there's more!
Today you also unlocked two stretch goals—the "Full Monty" reward ($50,000) and the thirteenth trading card ($52,500) .
The Full Monty Reward
Hitting this stretch goal means I will commission fully nude versions of the sexy pin-up art created for all romantic cards of characters 18-years-old or over unlocked during this Kickstarter project! This special art will be available to all backers as a digital download and will also be an 11” x 14” print *option* for backers who would otherwise get the "regular" print of the art from each of those cards!
How this will work for those getting prints is that, when I send out the Kickstarter Shipping Survey, they'll get to decide whether they want all the 11" by 14" ROMANCE CARD art they're going to receive to be "Regular" or "Full Monty"—it's all or nothing in order to keep things from getting crazy for me when packing things up for y'all—and if they choose "Full Monty", all of those prints with characters over the age of 18 in the story will be the beautiful nudes I'll have my artists create! WOOT!
The 13th Trading Card
You also unlocked another Trading Card and now that voting for these the tenth card is complete, I can send you a voting link for the new one!
In the next BACKERS ONLY update, I'll include your voting link for this new card where you can let me know who you really want to see—and own—as another beautiful (and if they already have a Powers Card, SEXY) trading card and 11" x 14" print option!
Well, we're now at $53,743 and the next stretch goal gets unlocked less than $1500 away at $55,000. And this one's a fun one. If that stretch goal in unlocked, I'll create the Supporting Character Romance Print with NSFW option!
Hey, we all know Kyle and The Annihilator are the bomb, but who would you vote to see kissing (and maybe a whole lot more) if those two were out of the equation? I so want to know the answer to that. And if we hit this stretch goal, we'll all get a chance to find out (and see the sexy results!).
Will we hit that next stretch goal? Fingers crossed! But for now, it's time for me to send you another link for your thirteenth bonus trading card!
Thank you so much for your amazing support—both for your incredible backing that has me doing little boogie dances in my home office but also for the very kind words in your comments and emails. Hearing back from you that you're having a good time with this project makes me very happy. Making this fun was something that was very important to me so hearing that it's feeling that way for y'all just makes my day.
You are rock stars. Each and every one of you. And I'm so happy we're together on this journey.
