Woah... head spinning...
You all ROCK. We were fully prepared to be on pins and needles for at least 2 weeks of sleepless nights hoping and praying to reach our starting goal. THANK YOU FOR SPARING US SUCH PROLONGED STRESS!
THIS BOOK IS HAPPENING! :)
Now that we've hit our starting goal, we want to push to make it even BETTER. We were hoping to include these extra things in the final product, but didn't want to be too presumptuous or in over our heads from the start. So we're unlocking a chart of Stretch Goals today:
If we hit $10,000 – we will add 24 more pages (144 pages total)
If we hit $13,000 – we will add another 32 pages (176 pages total)
If we hit $15,500 – we will add another 24 pages (200 pages total)
If we hit $18,000 – we will produce a limited Hardcover edition. This version will be the same book contents, but wrapped in a lush hardcover casing with a classy ribbon book mark. We will only produce 100-300 of these (depending on backer demand), and it will retail for $50-75 (depending on print count). If we hit this goal, we will add new Reward Tiers so that people can upgrade to receive this edition instead. The increase amount will be determined if/when we reach this goal, but the new tiers will be priced accordingly, with any extra adjustment to shipping for the added weight.
And if we exceed even that goal, we'd love to add more deluxe elements, like gatefold pages, textured machine graining on the cover, etc. But frankly, that's so far in the distance... let's just see how far you can help us take this thing!
Thanks again, and please keep spreading the word!
