Another Successful Kickstarter!

Sat 5/4/2019

Last week the Isle of Elsi Book One Kickstarter successfully funded. It was the biggest goal I had ever set out to achieve on that platform ($16,600) though not the most I've ever raised (the Basweood Kickstarter ended up at $21,444).

The campaign took a lot of concerted, sustained promotional effort on my part and ended up funding about 48 hours before the deadline. I learned a lot during this process, and I'm filling up a Google Doc with analysis, tips, tricks and pointers to hopefully make future endeavors of a similar sort go more smoothly. I'll be sharing these insights with my backers in various future updates.

Now that the funding window and its promotion is finally over, I'm super excited to be switching into production mode. This book will be my biggest-ever self-publishing project: a four-color (CMYK), offset, 144-page hardback book. Once I've completed that, it really will feel like I can self-publish anything.

Thanks to all the 288 backers for making this book a reality, and thanks to the many more people who helped me spread the word about this project. I can't wait to get these comics off the internet and into book form, so I can get them into the hands of my intended readers - KIDS!
