Yewheww!! We did it! Now the pressure’s on… got to deliver rewards to the good people of the internet!
But we know this is just the beginning, right? Now it’s time to get down to business.
Last week I averaged 7 hours a day sending emails. “Hi, I’m Chelsea and I wrote this funny book for kids yada yada yada…” But at last, it’s paying off. (Although my eye’s are blood shot, and I’m not so great to be around at the moment… all part of the deal.)
Anyways! I’ve gotten the attention of two podcasters, a couple of publishers lined up, a well-known activist and author on my side. I’ve also been talking with scientists about collaborating on projects. I’m excited to share more about this in the coming weeks.
And as you can see, I’ve raised enough to start production, but I’ve only sold about 40 books. (thanks to you generous people!) So now it’s time to get rid of some of these “30”s… and go up up up.
However, I do expect a delay with the books.
1- My wonderful illustrator is on vacation… ugh! Can you believe her? The audacity.
2- Yearbook season is upon us. Meaning, the printers are about to be very busy and I have to take my ticket in line.
The next step: I want to create more rewards “stretch goals” for everyone and DOUBLE my goal. (Go big or go home, Chelsea.) Also, if you’ve actually read this update LET ME KNOW I’m going to send you a secret. It may be juicy. It may be rum. To be decided…
I think you’re wonderful.
