Well, we’ve had a VERY exciting last 36-hours-or-so, that I wasn’t able to post about as it happened because I was traveling.
Exciting thing the first:
On Friday afternoon, we were notified that Kickstarter had selected us as a #projectwelove!
Exciting thing the second:
On Friday evening, we reached our primary funding goal of $7,500! Add Magic to Taste will definitely be a reality after our campaign ends!
Exciting thing the third:
Yesterday, we reached our first stretch goal, which means that the book will have a full-color second piece of artwork by @lizleeillustration (Instagram | Twitter | Personal Website) on the back cover as well as the first! We’d already prepared for meeting this goal; LizLee had sent us three sketches, from among which we picked the cover – a second of the sketches will be modified to be the back cover, and here’s a sneak peek!
Overall, it’s been a REALLY thrilled few days, and there are so many good things to come! We are at $9,000 so far for funding, and we have stretch goals planned through $25,000 – which we doubt we’ll reach but oh would it be so so so exciting if we did! Backers will get extra merch (at no additional cost to themselves!) and our authors will get pay increases and the Press will be better able to pay our staff and monthly expenses – so if you’ve been considering backing the project, let me tell you: this is a sure thing, and you should at least give it a look!
