Holy smokes, guys - we did it! Thanks to all of your support, we've now unlocked temporary rune tattoos for EVERYONE, 3 more full-page illustrations (for 13 total!!), AND a built-in ribbon bookmark! I never thought we would get this far!! As part of my heartfelt thanks, and to honor those followers who have expressed special interests in fantasy maps, I am decreasing the next stretch goal from $40k to $35k. I don't know about you all, but I have never seen such a stunning, colorful map in a fantasy book, and to be able to print it even larger, in vibrant HD color...well, let's just say, I *really* want to make this happen for us!
So there you have it! Three stretch goals unlocked, with a fourth nigh in sight! BTW, that "surprise" reward at $40k is shaping up to be something REALLY, REALLY, special. If you know anyone who would love portal fantasy with snark, steam, Yiddishisms, and heart, please consider sharing this gilded yumminess with them!
Lastly, I wanted to share this incredible project from my friend and urban fantasy idol, Annette Marie. While her Kickstarter certainly needs no help from me, it's one of the most beautiful and high-quality fantasy Kickstarters I've seen in a very long time. If stories like Mulan, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings are your jam, you've got to check out this incredible campaign, which funded within minutes of going live! I for one can't wait to get my copy!
