Today the last of the packages and envelopes went out with your postcards, patches and books... which means from my end, this Kickstarter project is complete! Thanks to you, there is now a print version of Spots to go with the existing e-book version. I couldn't have done it without your help!
You should expect your goodies to arrive anywhere between 1-3 weeks for people in the US, and somewhat longer outside it. Books are traveling book rate, which takes a bit longer; envelopes are going regular mail, which means they should arrive somewhat faster.
If in 3 weeks (4, if outside the US) you have not seen your materials, please contact me so we can figure out what happened.
If you're still feeling excited about Spots, there are some things you can do even now that the project is complete! You can share the story with your friends! Or leave a review for me on Amazon or your blog, or wherever you hang out online. There's even Spots merchandise, if you're feeling like you need a mug or poster!
What's next for me? This year I'll be finishing up my fantasy-of-manners serial, currently running concurrently on my blog and livejournal, and starting a new novel sequel at year's end: either a follow-up to my novel of the alien Jokka The Worth of a Shell... or Spots! I'm even considering giving my fans the choice of which sequel they want most, by running a Kickstarter in autumn to help fund the writing process and letting the backers vote on which project they want most.
In addition, I'm launching a new Kickstarter next week for a piece of nonfiction: a collection of my business columns for creative professionals, illustrated with cartoon jaguars. I hope you'll keep an eye out for it if you're in the market (ha!) for such a book.
Once again, thanks so much for your support and enthusiasm. This project's been a wonderful experience for me, and I hope it has been for you too. :)
