THANK COO!!! ❤❤❤
So I'm a bit late with this announcement, but I've had a super intense week getting the book finalised because WE HIT 100% FUNDING!!! I'm still in total shock over it. Even as the percentage crept through the high 90s, there was a part of me that was still being negative and was convincing me that it'd never get funded. Almost like I have a mental illness or something, how weird.
It was such an amazing surprise over the bank holiday weekend to wake up and see 100%! I just wanted to say thank you all so, so much. One of the worst things about anxiety and depression is just how alone it makes you feel. These comics have allowed me to connect with people more strongly than I ever could've dreamed; for so many people to pledge towards a book of them means more to me than words can ever say. Every like, every comment, every share, every pledge you've contributed over the last six months or so, never stopping even when I spam about it every single day, has lead to this. You have made this happen, and I can't thank you all enough.
I really, really hope you all like the book! It'd be a bit crap if after all this time it was terrible, wouldn't it? I'm just kidding, it's gonna be really good. (I hope.) I'm very proud of it, and I feel like it's been a good way to purge so many negative feelings clogging up my brain.
I'll be taking a bit of a break from comics this week, as all the exhaustion seems to have hit me at once - all I want to do is sleep! Even more than usual! Keep your eyes out for more details as they come. Lots of things (e.g. publication date) will be confirmed soon, and I'm hoping to introduce some stretch goals, as it'll still be possible to pledge for a bit longer!
In the mean time, I hope you all have lovely days and find some money you forgot about in your jacket pocket.
Thank you all so so so much again!!
