      Hi Scott. Yes, I could have done a lot more to promote it, but it got to a point where spending time on promoting it when it was pretty clear that it didn't have the natural momentum to complete was an opportunity cost. I'll write a more detailed post mortem at some point but the initial burst of pledges lasted only three days. After a week of pretty heavy promotion it wasn't making any progress at all, even after a tweet from a friend with 1.6 million followers! At that point I realised that it wasn't developing a life of its own, which is what it really needed to do, and that it was doubtful that even an extreme bout of promotion would help.

      At that point I reassessed my plans and decided that I'd be better off spending time working on the story rather than on the promotion, and that's what I did. It's sad in some way that it didn't complete, but on the other hand, I'm actually happier with my Plan B. The story will be finished, will be made available, and I will make some hand-bound copies, so it's not over!

      Disappointed to see that this didn't make it's goal. Probably needed a few more updates :)

      Thanks Roland! Shipping to Canada is indeed included - it's the same from here as shipping to the USA. And I'm very glad to have you on board!
