And we're off!
Dear Kickstarter supporter,
Last night, I stayed up to watch as Kickstarter counted down the last few minutes of our funding campaign. At midnight Pacific Standard Time, our page status switched from "Funding" to "Funded"!
Ian and I are blown away by your generosity. You and 145 other backers together helped us raise the magnificently devilish sum of $6,666, which is a full 133% of our original goal. As a result, over 350 copies of the book will now be traveling out to all corners of the globe over the next several days, weeks, and months.
Today, I'm preparing the Kickstarter surveys that we'll use to gather your contact information, mailing address, and other details required to prepare and ship your rewards. The first reward to reach you will probably be your ebook copy of the book, since it will travel at cyberspeed. For those of you receiving physical rewards as well, I'll be shipping them out as quickly as possible -- paperbacks first, then tee shirts, then hardcovers and signed prints. I'll keep you abreast of shipping timing so you'll know approximately when to expect your goodies in the mail.
We are delighted by the prospect of sharing the illustration project with you over the course of this spring, and we hope that seeing the artwork unfold will deepen your enjoyment of the story, whether you choose to read it first in its original narrative form or wait to read until you have the illustrated hardcover in hand.
Thank you for making this project possible!
Audrey & Ian
