Answers for new Kickstarter backers and one ADORABLE salamander!
A lot of you are first-time Kickstarter users, so I want to welcome you and give a quick update about what you can expect in the next week as we wrap things up!
- You have complete control over how much you contribute to a Kickstarter. You can change the amount of your pledge all the way up until it finishes, so if you really want to see my campaign succeed, choose the tier you like best and just add whatever you like to the dollar amount.
- A lot of Kickstarters offer exclusive deals you won't get in the future, and this is true of mine as well! Check out the Book Bundle and World Traveler tiers in particular for some really fun offerings.
- Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing funding method. At the stroke of midnight next Monday, if the campaign is funded, you'll be getting some awesome comics and cool art in the weeks to come! If it's not, I won't be taking a dime of your money. This is good, because that means I'm not making promises I can't keep! But it's also bad, because I won't be able to give you awesome comics via this campaign.
- When the Kickstarter campaign finishes, I'll be sending around surveys to everyone that backed. This gives you the opportunity to tell me about change of addresses or anything else I need to know to get you your stuff!
- If you want to mix and match tier rewards, just ask in the comments or send me a message! I'll respond with a custom price and instructions about how to indicate your rewards so I can get everything packaged together for you.
- If we exceed funding, stretch goals may add EXTRA goodies to your reward! In this Kickstarter, I'm offering an exclusive bonus bookmark by Isabelle Melançon if we reach $3700! After that, it's a mystery!
Introducing: Artist Spotlights and Rewards!
Now for the fun news! The art community has shown extraordinary support for this campaign, and I am so thankful for all of their contributions. This week, I want to highlight just a few of the artists who are making a difference in this campaign, and introduce a few sweet rewards that they are offering you!
If you live in the Atlanta area and go to DragonCon, you can't miss Caralyn's smiling face and adorable Myxie and steampunk critter statues. She offers everything from steampunk snails to pocketwatch fairies at her Etsy store, Mystic Reflections. And she has graciously donated her time and talents to making this ADORABLE rendition of Reggie, the baking salamander that helps our heroes in Sombulus Book 1:
Choose the REGGIE BUNDLE to get this one-of-a-kind handcrafted statue, then follow Mystic Reflections on Facebook to see more of Caralyn's fantasy/steampunk artwork!
Thanks everyone! 7 days left!
