The Kickstarter is going great, at more than 100% over goal and a little more than a week to go. Two stretch goals have been unlocked. The first was hard copies of the audiobooks:
This business card version is more expensive than traditional dangle-fob flash drives, but not by enough to make me hiss and crawl backwards up a wall, Exorcist-style. The next stretch goal item has been unlocked, and if we make $17K, will be available to Backers.
A little bit about the design on the back: it’s modeled directly after an ancient Roman coin, and the motto translates to “I saw, I fucked until exhaustion, I came.” Because there is an actual word for that in Latin. The Latin academic we ask for help with translations recommended “futuo” as that’s much more common, but that’s just “I fucked” and I think Speedy would be happy with the attention to detail.
I hope we make it to $20k, because that unlocks a bonus story. It’ll be written by me, but illustrated by my sister. I’m crazy-excited about that one. It’s a Speedy and Avery story, and I really want to turn Brie loose on those two. Her art is amazing!
Anyhow, more updates as they come!
