The Carpet Merchant Volume 2 | Update

Hi everyone,

I'm making a quick update and reminder.

The campaign for Volume Two is still ongoing. It's nearly 25% funded! If you enjoyed Volume One, please consider supporting the next (and final) installation of the story. The earlier we reach the funding goal, the sooner the book is published.

Previous backers who were waiting for the two-copies tier to be available can now select that option when pledging.

Custom reward options are also available - if any of you want a combination/quantity of rewards not available on the list, feel free to email me: and I'll get that sorted.


I hope everyone has received their books and goodies by now. Thanks so much for sharing pictures online and leaving reviews/ratings on Goodreads and Amazon. Your support really makes my day (and year!).

Wishing you a happy new decade, full of new opportunities and beautiful art.

Reimena Yee
