UPDATE: Regardless of the success of the campaign, I will still be able to make the journals available--hurrah! You can click here for purchase links. THANK YOU so much to everyone who has believed in and supported this project! I appreciate you SO much!
Two years ago I ran my first Kickstarter--a Jane Austen coloring book*--which did far and away beyond my expectations thanks to you, the amazing Kickstarter community! Now I'm back, with another Jane-inspired project: Jane Austen Journals.
Three of the illustrations from the coloring book make an appearance on the journal covers and are joined by three completely new illustrations!
Whether you're jotting notes for your next great novel, recording details of your thrilling memoir, or just writing a shopping list, these journals are sure to inspire any Janeite.
* "She Coloured" is offered as a PDF reward at every level of this campaign!
I had a lot of fun and a lot of trouble choosing the colors for these journals! I may still do a bit more tweaking, but these are essentially the final covers--bright and vibrant, like Jane Austen's books, with a soft watercolor texture to lend a bit of old-fashioned charm.
She had a lively, playful disposition which delighted in anything ridiculous. -Pride and Prejudice
"But, perhaps, I keep no journal." -Northanger Abbey
Nobody minds having what is too good for them. -Mansfield Park
A bow, a curtsey...they had been once more in the same room. -Persuasion
Till she had moved about, and talked to herself, and laughed and reflected, she could be fit for nothing rational. -Emma
To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect. -Sense and Sensibility
Each journal interior features corner illustrations which coordinate with the cover (below is the "Anything Ridiculous" interior).
I'm keeping this campaign short and simple: it's only running for three weeks, and I'm only offering three pledge levels--with FREE shipping!*
*Only ships within the USA. International shipping costs are so high I'm not offering that option. Never fear, friends from afar, the journals will soon be available on Amazon (retail $6.99USD/each) with more reasonable shipping than I can offer!
Unless something completely unexpected happens, your reward will be delivered before Christmas! These would be the perfect gift for the Janeite in your life--or anyone who enjoys witty quotes and pretty journals!
Risks and challenges
This is my third Kickstarter, so I have a good idea of what is involved in creating and fulfilling rewards. The journal cover illustrations and internal layouts will be finalized and ready to go as soon as the Kickstarter ends!
I plan to fulfill rewards through Amazon rather than fulfilling rewards myself as I have in the past. I don't anticipate any major shipping complications, but I will be sure to keep you updated throughout the fulfillment process!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
