I plan to write 12 novels in 2012. The second trilogy takes place in my Shotguns & Sorcery fantasy noir setting.

Last Day! Lower the Goal!

As we roll toward the last day of this drive, it seems clear that I set the final goal too high again. I think there may be a lot of reasons for this, and I hope to write a post-mortem about it all once this drive is over. Kickstarter is such a new thing — and writing 12 novels in a year is so insane — that I don't have much history to base decisions on. In short — and in the best tradition of Indiana Jones — I'm making this up as I go. 

Which I don't think shocks any of you, right? 

Anyhow, I really want to write these books — all three of them. So I'm going to do what I did last time to help ensure that. 

I'm lowering the stretch goal for Book 3 — this time to $10k! 

So, help me out here, folks! I'm reaching in your direction. Reach out in mine. Tell anyone you know who might be interested. Consider upping your bid if you're on the fence. Remember, one of the things I cannot change about this drive is the end date, and that's tomorrow, March 11, at just before midnight. It all blazes across the finish line then, ready or not. 

Thanks to each and every one of you for your support. Here's to a fantastic race to the finish!

      I understand that. I do plan on completing these three books one way or the other. If we hit all goals, though, it'll be sooner instead of later. :)

      Good luck on reaching the $10K goal, Matt. I guess one of the reasons that I was waiting on pledging was to see if the other two books would be unlocked. I did not want to start reading a trilogy that would not be completed.
