We did it!!!! Thank you all SO MUCH!!!

(you’ll have to imagine all the party-horn emojis because Unbound is too classy to let me post them)


What happens from here? Well, the funding page says “Writing in progress” but actually the book is completely written. I just sent the latest, tweaked copy of the MS to my editor and we’ll be making it clean(er) and nice(er) over the coming few months. And I have maps to draw, and Trung has four more illustrations to do. So there will be lots of fun updates!

We’re also looking at some fun stretch funding goals that will benefit ALL backers, but that’s next week’s job. (If you have anything you particularly want to see, let me know!)

Folks will still be able to pre-order the book while we’re in production, so if you know people who couldn’t pledge because of timing (the holidays can be HARD on finances), there’s still time.

Thank you all again. Gonna go collapse for a while now.

Congratulations! Maybe the 'zine could be available to all pledge levels as a stretch goal? That's as far as my imagination goes :)
