The third day of the Something Terrible Kickstarter campaign closes at well over 200% of the goal, with nearly 500 backers. I can’t thank you all enough! I can’t believe we’ve already doubled our goal. This is phenomenal. I can’t wait for us all to have these print editions in our hands.
And to give you a look at what’s coming, here’s a mock-up of the book, I’ve just received from the printers.
Thanks so much, and please keep spreading the word
to your friends and family, who might be or know someone who needs this story. I’m still receiving messages every day from people just now discovering Something Terrible
and being set free from the fears that plagued them for years. They found that freedom because YOU are sharing this story.
I’ve received hardcover pricing options from my wonderful printers, and I’ve made a decision on the price we need to hit to make hardcovers a financially viable option, but retain the $10 price point I’ve wanted Something Terrible to be set at. To do that, I’ll need to double the order to 4000 copies. This was likely to happen, anyway, as demand in just the first five days has far exceeded what I’d anticipated. Thank you all so much for being a part of this project.
So, I’m setting the stretch goal for the hardcovers at $22,000. This will accommodate the larger order, the increased shipping costs, and still keep the book at ten dollars each, retail. (At this price and format, by the way, the Retailer/Support Organization Donor Level is made even more appealing, in my opinion.) It’ll also leave me with extra copies to sell at cons, where I think folks who missed out on the Kickstarter will be looking for it.
Thanks as always for sharing this story with your friends. It is spreading farther than I’d have ever imagined. Once again, here is your signal in the sky from me: <3
