What a Week..
This capped it off. Funding for EGGSHELLS started on Wednesday on Indiegogo (hit the link at the top of the page if you haven't!) with humble expectations and blew them out the water. A rush at the start of the campaign was expected; a rush of this volume wasn't. The 5000 USD goal was reached in less than 18 hours. A 6500 USD stretch goal of making the art heavy Victors' Edition a hardback was met within 24 hours. Now we're well underway to reaching the second stretch goal, which will be a podcast companion series joining the main book, which I'll talk more about in the next update. Finally, to end the week, EGGSHELLS is the top trending writing and publishing campaign on the whole Indiegogo platform as I write this, which is just amazing.
Not much else to add right now except thank you, and as I'm just now caught up with processing the new pledges coming in, I want to keep work going on the book itself. Right now, a lot of great art is coming in every day for the Victors' Edition, and edit notes and layout tweaks are the order of the day for every other version of the book. It's been an amazing few days, but there's a lot still to do!
