Wow – what a month we’ve had! Over the past 30 days, our 744 amazing backers contributed $25,808 to make this project a success, and we couldn’t be more grateful. All our authors will get paid 8 cents US per word, up to $400 per author, which is a.may.zing, and backers will get this excellent book, lots of fun merch and extras, and the privilege of saying “I was there when Duck Prints Press launched their first anthology!”
For people who backed, we posted about our “next steps” in this Kickstarter update.
For people who didn’t back – couldn’t afford to, were on the fence, missed the deadline, only just found out about it now, all that jazz – we’ll be having an extras sale, most likely in late fall or early winter, once the majority of the KS have received the packages.
The following items will definitely be available in the extras sale:
- rubber duckies
- both enamel pins
- small glossy prints of the third piece of artwork
The following items might be available in the extras sale:
- art prints
- copies of the trade paperback book
- mini-book extra
The following items will not be available in the extras sale:
In addition, at or around the same time, the e-book will go up for sale on our website, and will remain available there for as long as the Press is in operation!
As we said in our advertising – the only guaranteed way to get the book was to back the Kickstarter, and that remains true. We may have a handful of extra books, but it’ll depend on how many get damaged in shipping and need to be replaced, how many we decide to keep for future campaigns, etc. Right now, we’re only expecting to print about 20 copies above the number purchased, so if we have any at all, it’ll be a very limited quantity.
Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or comments! It’s been a very exciting time, and we can’t wait to start making everything and getting backers their rewards!
