Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I thought today would be the perfect day to touch base with you again and let you know how grateful I am for your generosity and support!
Now that the activity has died down, you may have begun wondering about reward fulfillment. I would if I were you! Fulfillment for the Wildlife in Wild Lands Kickstarter project will begin in January, as stated on the campaign page. I hope you don't mind waiting. If you're wondering why we aren't beginning sooner, considering the books are already selling, the answer is scheduling! Preparation and execution of book signings, gallery exhibits, interviews, and a book launch party have all begun. There is a lot on the schedule, in addition to holiday commitments with friends and family!
As for book sales, the book has been selling on Amazon since November 1st and we are doing well with sales and shipping. It took a little trial and error to figure out the whole Amazon Advantage process, but we've got it now (This was not intuitive process!). We even sold out of books at one point! This is excellent because there is still much of the production budget we are still attempting to cover. The book was never priced to make money, in fact, the price point is less than half what it should be. Our goal was to get something beautiful and engaging out into the world. To present the unique animals of southern South America to people around the world and begin a discussion about the challenges they face in the wild. People are loving the book and that makes me feel immensely proud.
If you would like to follow more of the activity surrounding the book please visit our Facebook page at - https://www.facebook.com/mywildlifepress/ or the Wildlife in Wild Lands webpage at - https://wildlifeinwildlands.com/
In the meantime, take care and be kind to one another. I'll be in touch soon!
