The Kickstarter is complete.
Thanks to our 779 generous backers, $33,288 was raised. WOW!
It’s been an exhilarating process. Our funding goal was met in the first 5 hours. Then we locked in funding for a whole year. The Indigenous fantasists bonus issue became reality. And finally the international/translated fiction bonus issue sprang to life.
It’s been an exhausting process. Thank you to Lesley Conner, Maurice Broaddus, Shana DuBois, Hayley Dietrich, Andrea Johnson, Justin Stewart, KT Bryski, and Greg Fazekas for making sure the Kickstarter came together. It was a remarkably smooth project as far as Kickstarters go.
It’s been an encouraging process. To be embraced and supported by the genre community to this degree in the times we live is humbling and affirming. My team and I thank you for this opportunity.
What’s the next step?
Kickstarter will process payments during the next few days. In the next couple of weeks we’ll send out backer surveys (this is where you’ll have the chance to pick up more bookmarks and pins).
Lesley, Maurice, Shana, and I will start work on issue 121!
