Over $11,000 was pledged on the Kickstarter campaign that closed June 24, but none of the pledges went through and ZERO dollars came in because the total goal amount wasn’t met. Kickstarter is an all or nothing funding platform. A met goal ($20,000) would have supplied all that is needed to publish, distribute, publicize and properly market the first three books in the series.
But the first books WILL publish, and the series WILL launch.
This is the page where you can support the project. I’m hopeful that the 70 people who pledged support on Kickstarter will re-make that pledge of support using this page: Here, your contribution will go through and make a difference. And there are similar gifts for you. (See below.)
