The First 24 hours = Wow!
It's been exactly 24 hours since I pushed the launch button on this campaign. I was incredibly nervous and excited with a stomach ache at the time.(which is usually what happens to me when I get really nervous) But now, 24 hours later, I am ecstatic! I had high hopes for this campaign but never did I expect to raise more money in 24 hours than my entire first Kickstarter campaign.
As I write this we are at $14,015 with 216 backers! A-MAZE-ZING!
So, what now? Well, In trying to keep up with all the direct messages and emails and comments I have heard loud and clear that I need to add a new option. I must have gotten 30 emails and comments about this, which is great because I now know how important it is to many of you. So thanks for letting me know!
New Pledge Option!
Many of you who bought the first book want an option to get a slipcase without buying another copy of Volume 1. I can understand that. The main problem I have with offering it was keeping it limited. I think I found the answer. So, this morning I decreased the number of Box sets you can get from 500 to 350. Then I added a new pledge option where you can get Volume 2 with the slipcase for $40. (Sorry, but for international backers, this will make your order fall into the 2 or more category because of the slipcase. I'll address shipping more later because I received a few comments about that as well)
This pledge amount is limited to 50 people. If the demand is high enough then I'll increase it and adjust the number of box sets again. I want to keep the number of box sets to around 500 total to keep it rare and valuable.
As most of you probably know, you can upgrade your pledge option at anytime while the campaign is active. So feel free to jump on this slipcase option while it's available. :)
I started this campaign with only the bare bones so that I could add things to it as I go based on your requests. I have already received requests for prints, plushies and more drawings which are all great options! Please let me know what you would like to have included for new pledge rewards because I am completely open. I have a new t-shirt designed that I haven’t printed yet… would anyone be interested in that?
Any ideas, let me know!
On top of that, I have a few stretch goals already in mind where I can shower you with additional rewards for free. Lets keep this momentum going and we will get there for sure. Thanks again for being such a loving and amazing group!
As always, please keep spreading the word and I’ll do my best to keep up. :)
