Update #1

We reached our goal!

Comment

Hello everyone,

Thanks to each and every one of you for your contributions toward our goal of $1100. We would not have made it without you!

And there are still 28 days left in the campaign! We intend to use any surplus toward sending a larger percentage of the audio books for FREE to people who might not otherwise be able to afford them. Thanks for your help to share this project with a wider audience!

I will keep you posted on our progress. In the meantime, here are a couple recent interviews with me about my process:
