The nautical term used when a sailing vessel is unable to move due to lack of wind. That has been us this past week. Stalled. In irons. Dead in the water.
Despite exhausting our own social networks, climbing to Kickstarter's front page of popular publishing for the weekend, and even being featured in a few notable zombie blogs, we have slowed to raising $71 in new pledges this past week. Far from our goal of $1085. We need some wind for our sails, in the form of new pledges.
Remember, if we don't reach our goal, all funds raised are cancelled and the project will be naught. Full sails, make our own wind, cargo overboard to get her moving. Time to beat to quarters, arm yourself with social networking ammo, and fire away!
We are at the halfway point, with $3328 to go!
P.S. In case you missed it on our front page, here are the updates featuring the articles about our project:
UPDATE: Stuart Conover, editor of the BuyZombie blog, has written an... hmmm, how do we say this, interesting interpretation of our Kickstarter project. With roughly 100 words of original text in the article, both of our names are misspelled and our faith in fact-checking needs to be restored, however, it is for these reasons that it is an entertaining read. Check it out and lend your support to Marc and Cole, they sound like swell chaps!
UPDATE: John Sears, President of the Zombie Rights Campaign and Administrator of its accompanying blog, has written a feature post on our project. Ever vigilant, his praise comes with no little concern for our attempt at an "honest" portrayal of the differently animated (zombies) in this story. Forthright, candid- and highly worth the read! John, we will try not to disappoint the cause!
