GO HOME PADDY in the Media

Hey all—

Two quick updates:

Roughly 60 pages to go!

Just wanted to drop an update to let everyone know that there's about 60 pages left to finish before GO HOME PADDY is complete. 

Also, the website has been updated with LOTS of new material. So if you're interested in giving the first 100 pages or so a read, head on over to: GO HOME PADDY.

Thanks again for ALL of your support!

We hit our goal!

As of yesterday, we hit 100% of our goal! THANK YOU to everyone that has pledged and helped spread the word. We've got SIX more days to keep fundraising, and there are still plenty of cool rewards available. Anything raised now is the icing on the Go Home Paddy cake and will allow me to spend that much more time finishing and promoting the Graphic Novel.

Thank you all soooooo much!
