Update #1

What happens now??

Hey everyone! In case you weren't aware, this project has been FUNDED. We met the 6,000 goal in five days, so apparently I vastly overestimated the time it would take. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH. For pledging and for telling your friends and for helping. It is a tremendous relief to know that I'll be able to pay for this up front, and I can't thank you all enough!!!!

So now I'll explain what will happen now that we're over goal:

As the amount raised goes higher, it will mean less out-of-pocket for me to pay for the print run. The 6,000 goal was the majority of the cost of the run, but not all of it. I also have other big book projects on the horizon: namely the one-volume Order of Tales book (which is top priority once the RB book is printed and all of these preorders are out the door), and the first volume of Vattu (probably late this year, but I'm still not sure about that one). The money raised through this Kickstarter will go FIRST to the Rice Boy book, of course. Once that is completely covered, any overage goes towards printing the Order of Tales book. So I can guarantee that all the money raised here will go into BOOKS!

Even though the goal is met, no one is actually paying, and I do not receive the money, until APRIL 22. I'm trying to work out a way with the printer to get started on the books before that date, and will keep you all abreast of how that goes.

The rewards for pledge amounts, and the maximum pledges allowed at each point, will remain the same!

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns! Thank you so much.
