Blessed by Kickstarter Success!

The Adventure Kickstarter came to a close yesterday, 109% funded. The generosity and support people gave this last month warms my heart. I really didn’t know what to expect when I launched the project and the response I got seriously brings tears to my eyes, like a giant hug from everyone I’ve met and even people I haven’t met over the years. As an author, it’s all about relationship, about caring about the audience you hope to engage.

When I set up The Adventure Kickstarter, I thought 30 days would move too quickly and, in a way, it did. However, on the other hand, 30 days was plenty for a Crowdfunding campaign. Kickstarter advises 30-60 days. I honestly can’t imagine how exhausting 60 days would be.

There’s a momentum, an enthusiasm, to it that needs to be maintained. Some days that’s easy, other days, when the Kickstarter is quiet, this requires a lot of self motivation and discipline because it feels like throwing yourself into a void.

But overall, there was a resounding response from the void. For that, I thank everyone. By now you know writing has been a dream of mine for years. Now that dream is coming true in large part because of all of you.

So, November 30th, The Adventure will be available on Amazon. I can’t say how amazing that is to me. I’ll keep you updated as things progress.

Until then, Blessings,

Jennifer

P.S. Hope you have a wonderful Halloween! Be safe out there.

It Comes with Rewards?!

Why yes, there are rewards for anyone who backs The Adventure on Kickstarter.

This is one of the coolest parts of running a Kickstarter.

  • First off, your name will end up in print. I.E. You’ll be added to the acknowledgements of the book!

From there, the rewards depend on the level at which you support the book, but they possibly include:

  • A digital version of the book. (KDP).
  • Custom stickers. These have artwork from the two artists who illustrated the book! They turned out really cool looking!
  • A signed softcover copy of the book. (Ships in January)
  • A signed hardcover copy of the book. (Only available through the Kickstarter. Ships in January)
  • a companion journal with artwork and quotes from The Adventure. (Ships in January)

If you’re following my Facebook page, you know the proof of the book has arrived. It looks amazing and I’m so excited to send out the finished product once I’ve fixed the few remaining issues with the copy!

Jennifer
