We did it!!!!!

And, we really did it. We blew past our goal (205%!!) and now have the chance to spread the message of The Shapeless Shape far and wide. Thank you!

What happens next??

Now that you're on this journey, here's a quick look at where we're going next!

  • FUNDS: Kickstarter will charge your card (it probably happened last night). Please make sure that the card you had associated with Kickstarter is up-to-date, or else we don't get the funds (yikes!)  Once everything clears, it takes about two weeks for those funds to reach us. 

  • ORDERING THOUSANDS OF COPIES: Since we're on a tight timeline, everything was already set before last night. The order has already been finalized and the books are in production!

  • SHIPPING INFORMATION: By early November, we'll send a survey for your shipping information. Please be on the lookout. The sooner we get your info, the easier it will be for us to make sure you receive your books on time.

  • BOOKS SHIP TO YOU: Our hope is to ship every last book by December 10th to ensure it gets to you by the holidays. 

  • BOOK READINGS & CELEBRATIONS: Once everything is shipped, we'll plan a few gatherings to celebrate the making of this book with all of you. Can't wait!

  • CAN FRIENDS STILL PRE-ORDER A COPY? Yes! Just send them straight to our Kickstarter page to find more information. There's now a new pre-order button. Thanks again for sharing it. 

  • INSTAGRAM & FACEBOOK: The Shapeless Shape will be posting life updates on instagram (www.instagram.com/theshapelessshape/) & Facebook (www.facebook.com/TheShapelessShape). Follow along!

On a personal note: I was sharing dinner with a mentor and close friend of David and mine. We were talking about other classic children's books like The Velveteen Rabbit, The Giving Tree, Corduroy, or anything by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. We talked about how those types of books travel into people's homes and live with them for years, even decades...and how those stories become part of people's lives. That's what we hope happens with this book for you and others. Thank you again for being part of it before you even had a chance to hold it in your hands or read the story. It's a special thing we're doing together. Thank you.


Now, go have a great weekend and be sure to leave any questions, thoughts or celebratory comments below. 

High fives all around!
