Second stretch goal: Interview with Hope Nicholson, "Secret Loves of Geek Girls"!
Hello, you amazing Kickstarter Secrets backers!
You're blowing my mind. You cooked past our first stretch goal in a day, and now the book will include interviews with Amy Chu (writer of Girls Night Out) and Drew Westphal (logistical coordinator of the Code Monkey Save World campaign)! And now here's our next stretch goal:
If we hit $4000, I'll interview Hope Nicholson of Secret Loves of Geek Girls fame!
Hope Nicholson is the owner of the Winnepeg comics publisher Bedside Press and has funded four projects through Kickstarter, including two reprint books of Canadian comics classics and The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, an all-female anthology of stories about love, romance, and sex. I've already been talking with Hope and she some great insights about the importance of running a Kickstarter campaign like a business and has some very specific and incredibly useful tips specific to publishing and shipping from Canada.
I'm hugely excited about these interviews, y'all. One of the great things about writing a how-to book is learning what you don't know -- I'm going to learn a huge amount from these interviews and share it all with you!
Please do feel free to share the word with your friends to help bump us up and make these interviews happen. After Hope, we have Jimmy Palmiotti and C. Spike Trotman lined up. These are all legends in comics Kickstarter publishing, and I can't wait to talk with them in depth. Here's that link again:
Thank you SO MUCH!
