The Optimist

By Sophie Kipner

A delusional girl’s very misguided search for love

Thursday, 7 July 2016

Thank You! We did it!

Hello to my wonderful friends, family, book enthusiasts and future owners of THE OPTIMIST!

Because of your support, THE OPTIMIST is going to be published! WOOHOO! Thank you to each and every one of you who made this happen! With your pledges, the once far-removed dream of getting my novel out into the world and into the hands of readers is now a reality, and I couldn't be more grateful and excited. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU!

Now that the book is fully funded, I'm entering into the editorial stage and continuing to draw my illustrations for not only the cover but for in between the chapters. And, I'd love your input! I'll be following up with some samples, as well as video excerpts of friends who have embodied Tabitha, the protagonist, and any other updates and/or questions for feedback along the way. 

And even though we have passed the 100% mark (WOO!), people can still pre-order the book. So if you have any friends who you think would be interested, they can still have their name printed in the book, as will all of you, as a supporter of THE OPTIMIST. 

Again, thank you so much for your interest, encouragement, and for giving Tabitha a heartbeat. 

More to come! Until then...
