Risks and challenges
In preparation for this campaign, I have made sure that all printing, packing and shipping costs have been considered. I do business with Friesens, the printing company that has produced the French version of tome 1, so I am confident about the quality of its books. It also happens to be a Canadian company, so if additional delays should occur, they would be minimal.
However, we live in a somewhat unpredictable world, so problems may arise. Canada Post could go on strike (remember last year?), inflate their prices, packages could be lost, etc. Delivery dates have been set to June, in case shipping related delays would occur.
There is also a limited amount of book 1 copies. There are a few solutions to this: a new stretch goal could be created, or the rewards that feature tome 1 could simply be closed after a certain of them have been claimed. The outcome will largely depend on the success of the campaign.
The biggest challenge is of course, the campaign itself. This is my first Kickstarter campaign, and I have to execute everything in a very tight schedule, given that convention season is fast approaching. This is, however, not the first time I manage the selling and shipping of goods on the Internet. I am a rather resourceful person who can solve complicated problems and who can do a lot with little time. I have heavily researched Kickstarter and crowdfunding in general, so I am tackling this beast with confidence.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
