Update #2

Nine More Artists, plus ebooks for everyone!

2 comments

Thank you all so much.  I promised three question marks when we reached $30k and we just have (hooray!) so those question marks are NOW REVEALED.

NINE MORE SUPERSTAR ARTISTS!  In addition to the artists already revealed, there will be illustrations by:

I am SUPER EXCITED about this.  These are all such talented illustrators and it's amazing to have them on board with this project.  This book is going to be great!

In addition, everyone who donated $15 or more gets the ebook (Secretly it was always supposed to be this way, but I messed up and some of the tiers didn't have it.  But yes, it is now explicit: if you're at a tier level, you get the digital book on top of whatever else you're getting!)

We've also made crossed TWO $5k thresholds since the last update, so I owe you two pages of story!  I want to give everyone a chance to vote in the first one though so I won't burn through those too quickly.  They are coming!  In any case, right now it seems most of you want to read the acknowledgements page which is insane.

You're just lucky I wrote a pretty good acknowledgements page with lots of choices in it

      I second Paul on worth backing this project just to get the emails form Ryan - I've already received more updates (on the first day of the project) than I have from the entire funding time on some other Kickstart projects! Yaaaay Ryan! Go Team! Go Team! :-)

      This project is worth backing just to get periodical emails from Ryan. Sometimes I pretend that he's sending them just to me.
