There Are No Words

Hello all you incredible people.

My phone has been buzzing off the hook (out of the pocket? What's the right phrase for cell phones?) ever since I pressed that "Launch" button this morning. My inbox is flooded with notifications. My Facebook page is spooling endless reposts and shares. My eyes are more than a little damp.

At 1:01pm, only five hours after we started this thing, you guys hit the mark -- and then just kept going. The project is at $2,000 with 20 days to go. What does this mean? I don't rightly know yet. Maybe we'll end up doing a much larger print run of the comic, or maybe you guys will be single-handedly responsible for funding my graphic novel debut. Maybe I will just start covering every copy in gold leaf. What do you think? I don't know what to think right now.

Basically, we're just gonna keep on truckin' and see where this wild ride takes us. I have no doubt that, whatever happens, it's gonna be awesome.

Thank you all for believing in this thing. If anyone had told me I'd be able to raise this much to make comics two years ago, I would've incredulously punched them in the face. Not any more.

Expect more coherent updates in the next few days, but for now: YOU. GUYS. ROCK.

xoxo

Lucy

      Congratualtions! With so much time left you might want to plan some stretch goals. Plenty of Kickstarters assembled extra stuff to roll out at new funding goals. The biggest one of all was the Order of the Stick comic http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/599092525/the-order-of-the-stick-reprint-drive which just kept rolling along to absurd heights. Something more moderate might be the Dinocalypse Now fiction that just finished. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/evilhat/spirit-of-the-century-presents-the-dinocalypse-tri

      I don't know how much it might help, but I just did a big survey of 150 roleplaying game crowdfunding projects and put up some analysis of the data I collected. The genres are different, but there might be some analysis that would be helpful for you.
