First Update

This is my first progress report for Walking On Thin Air.  As any author will tell you, this crowdfunding is a tricky business.  You have to be fairly shameless in asking for help and money, which doesn't come easily to me or I expect most writers.  You fear you don't have enough friends and fans to make the project work.  The good news is I've been very pleased and in some cases very moved, by the support I've received so far.  I don't expect or demand anything from my contacts but I've been touched by how many have come to join in the crowdfunding fun.  There's still a long way to go and, as expected, this is going to be more of a marathon than a sprint.  But the ball is rolling and I'm hoping it gains moment.

Hi Geoff, I discovered your work a couple of years ago via Complete Review and have really enjoyed your fiction and nonfiction, including your blogs. I emailed M.A. Orthofer, from the aforementioned site, about your crowdfunding enterprise so hopefully he will spread the word; he is a fan of yours too.
