The Hand Off!
Well folks, Drew and I just handed off the Master of the CD to our pals at ADS who will turn it into beautiful compact discs of music and poetry for you to hear.
We have made an almost extra $1000, so I know we will be able to cover some of the expenses we didn't calculate when we started. There are always things that take more time and money to do just right - the lay out is one thing. We are using photos that I have taken in Norway and that Drew has taken on the North shore of Lake Superior in the 16 page booklet. I felt that it would be worth adding extra lay out hours to this because the photos and the lyrics/translations really help to tell the stories of the Nykken and Bear.
If we can make another $1000, we can invest in promoting the recording. We can also, then start making headway towards a video by gathering your votes on which song you most want us to do! Of course, you will need time with the CD to evaluate this, so we will stay in touch over the course of the next few months.
We will be putting together the budget for the video this week and keep you posted.
Thank you all so much. This has been a really joyful project! I hope you can keep passing the word over the next 13 days so we can get enough to make a start on promotions/video!
Bjørnklem! (bear hug)
