First of all, THANK YOU!!!
Because of your support, we have raised $20,000 in just 2 days! (Well, we are actually at $19,935 but there is just no ring to that.) ANYWAY, The funny thing is, I haven’t even emailed everyone I know yet. :)
I totally haven’t been able to concentrate at work these last two days but work is busier than ever with lots of high profile meetings and pitches happening. It’s probably good that work is super busy or I’d go insane checking this campaign every 2 seconds.
So the $40 pledge is almost sold out in 24 hours. The $120 Box Set is completely sold out already.
I’ve had some requests for a little drawing inside the $40 package and since we are almost sold out of the $40 option, I might include a $45 option that adds a little drawing inside of Volume 2. Does that sound reasonable? I am still undecided.
Anyway, I am trying to post new updates every morning on Kickstarter so definitely keep checking in.
It’s been exactly 24 hours since I pushed the launch button on my new Kickstarter campaign for reMIND Volume 2. I was incredibly nervous and excited with a stomach ache at the time.(which is usually what happens to me when I get really nervous) But now, 24 hours later, I am ecstatic! I had high hopes for this campaign but never did I expect to raise more money in 24 hours than my entire first Kickstarter campaign.
As I write this we are at $14,015 with 216 backers! A-MAZE-ZING!
So, what now? Well, In trying to keep up with all the direct messages and emails and comments I have heard loud and clear that I need to add a new option. I must have gotten 30 emails and comments about this, which is great because I now know how important it is to many of you. So thanks for letting me know!
New Pledge Option!
Many of you who bought the first book want an option to get a slipcase without buying another copy of Volume 1. I can understand that. The main problem I have with offering it was keeping it limited. I think I found the answer. So, this morning I decreased the number of Box sets you can get from 500 to 350. Then I added a new pledge option where you can get Volume 2 with the slipcase for $40. (Sorry, but for international backers, this will make your order fall into the 2 or more category because of the slipcase. I’ll address shipping more later because I received a few comments about that as well)
This pledge amount is limited to 50 people. If the demand is high enough then I’ll increase it and adjust the number of box sets again. I want to keep the number of box sets to around 500 total to keep it rare and valuable.
I started this campaign with the bare bones so that I could add things to it as I go based on what everyone asks for. I have already received requests for prints, plushies and more drawings which are all great options! Please let me know what you would like to have included for new pledge rewards because I am completely open. I have a new t-shirt designed that I haven’t printed yet… would anyone be interested in that?
Any ideas, let me know!
On top of that, I have a few stretch goals already in mind where I can shower you with additional rewards for free. Lets keep this momentum going and we will get there for sure. Thanks again for being such a loving and amazing group!
As always, please keep spreading the word and I’ll do my best to keep up. :)
Well, the time is finally here. My new big news is…
Well, it’s big news to ME anyway. I don’t even know what to say because I’m nervous like never before. I guess, I have so much riding on the success of this new Kickstarter in order to finally finish reMIND. Oh yeah, and I’m asking for WAY more money than I did last time. Part of the reason is because I don’t have the $5000 from the Xeric grant and I need to print 2 books with a slip case this time. Gulp.
I have about $5000 of my own money saved that I’ll be using to cover things like Kickstarter fees, some of the shipping and making the slip case because I didn’t even get a quote for that yet. All in all, I’m pretty confident that we can raise the money needed but I can’t help but be super nervous.
Anyway, I should quit typing before I say something really stupid in this state of mind.
But, If you can do anything to help me spread the word about this it would be AMAZING! Thanks again for all the love and support! We are almost to the finish line now. :)
