205 backers pledged $12,638 to help bring this project to life.

Almost There! Plus, More Updated Rewards.

Eleven days left, and 87 percent funded!  Just a little more of a push, and we'll meet the goal.  Thanks a million to all of you who have given so far.

More writers and musicians who contributed to these books have recently agreed to sign copies of their books or CDs to include in the "rewards package" for contributors who donated at the 100-dollar level or higher.  Musicians Annie Barker, John Grant, Anna-Lynne Williams (ie Trespassers William, Lotte Kestner), Emily Elhaj and Matt Jencik (from Implodes), and David Narcizo from Throwing Muses will all sign copies of their latest CDs.  (David says he'll try and persuade Kristin Hersh, also from Throwing Muses, to sign as well!)  I'll also have signed copies of the latest novels from writers Elizabeth Searle, Sheri Joseph, Mark Gluth, Sylvia Sellers-Garcia, and James Greer (who, as some of you know, isn't just a writer; he was also a member of Guided By Voices).  (I'll throw in signed copies of my own most recent book, too.)

I've been posting videos and updates and other stuff to the project's Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/TheFirstTimeIHeard.

I've reached my limit for allowable number of parenthesis in a Kickstarter update, so I'll sign off by thanking everyone again for taking part in this.  I'm in the process of finalizing all five books and doing the long process of copyediting and typesetting, so it won't be long before these books are online and ready for you to read.

Thanks-- Scott Heim
