Well FRACK ME!! We DID IT!
I’m going to put this one right at the feet of one guy. A fellow MN native put in for two more shields. That tossed it over the edge for a full color offset print run with nine minutes left.
So now, EVERYONE GETS COLOR. I will work with my printers to find an offset print run that is the best book I can make.
I honestly didn’t think this would happen earlier today . . . so I thank you deeply for your trust and your funds.
Thanks . . . and we got the print run. Awesome.
THANK YOU! I am amazed and awed
When we did almost $5,000 in the first two days, I was hopeful.
When the velocity slowed down, and for a bit it really looked like we’d have fewer backers than Lost Hall of Tyr, I was distressed.
But NOTHING prepared me for the last two days. And really nothing prepared me for the last two hours.
But we did it. Offset print is yours. Color books are yours. Jarls and above get color. Probably something like 125-140gsm silk matte paper (83-95#), sewn binding. 3.0mm boards. Did I mention SEWN FREAKING BINDING!?!
Basically, I’m going to ship you a book that looks like Symbaroum. I always wanted to do that, and thanks you you fine folks, now I can.
Now I will drink wine (Apothic Inferno), and had I realized this last two hours would have been so exciting, I’d have bought mead to be thematic.
I will be structuring my plans over the next few days, and getting backerkit ready. A big part of that is pre-orders, and that’s where we’ll deal with shipping.
For now . . . thank you so much for taking this ride with me. I cannot wait to get the book into your hands, and now I know it will indeed be the best possible book I can put together.
