We did it!
Thank you so much to all of you who have been a part of making the publishing of The Tribes of the Omo River a reality! My Kickstarter Project has far surpassed my greatest expectations. If you had told me at the beggining I would have raised nearly twice the funds I had set as my goal, reached Kickstarter project of the day status, and have the project written about on some of the biggest blogs on the internet, I never would have believed it!
So many exciting things are happening with the book right now. First things first, because we raised more money than our initial goal, we get to make a bigger book! Not only has the book size increased quite a bit, the page number has increased by 40 additional full color pages of photographs. I figured that was the best way to reward you all for your amazing support. Also we are going to be able to now print 1000 copies. Today the book is in the final process of editing and proofing before going to press in China.
Now the CD. One of the most exciting things to happen has been the development of the recordings of the tribes. Dockside Studios a grammy award winning studio from my home in Louisiana is helping to master the music from the recordings. This is really really exciting! Thank you so much Cezanne for helping with this! I can't wait to hear the finished sounds.
It has been so amazing getting to know all of you through this project! I can't tell you how grateful I am for all of your generous love and support. So many years I have worked towards this moment. Thank you for being a part of that!
Warmest wishes from Maui!
