Kickstarter campaign update.
We have 14 days left on the Kickstarter and a long way still to go (currently on 26%, needing another £8461). Regardless of the outcome, I’ve been really pleased by people’s reaction to the concept and the preview pages. Hopefully people aren’t quite sick of hearing about Forgotten Planet just yet, as we have more coverage planned to help us on the final run in.
On the weekend Bleeding Cool ran an article I wrote, unveiling a new reward level for aspiring writers. For £30 you can have one of your scripts critiqued by me, I give very honest feedback, answering the kind of questions that can help you shape your story and give clarity to your artist and in turn readers. Myself, Giancarlo and Shane were also interviewed about the book by the always excellent A Place to Hang your Cape. There’s another interview we’ve done following very soon.
Tonight I recorded an episode of Nerds Assemble, “a UK based podcast that deals with films, TV shows, videogames, comics/TPBs, graphic novels, anime, manga and much, much more.” The show should be out tomorrow, I get to talk about the latest nerdy news and then share some thoughts on Forgotten Planet and the Kickstarter campaign as well.
That won’t be the last of my podcast appearances between now and October 1st, when the door firmly slams shut on the crowd- funding campaign. I’ll be able to tell you more about that very soon.
If you have backed the campaign or intend to, please continue to share the campaign as every penny counts to help us reach our goal. Even if the book isn’t for you, if you know someone who would be interested pass on the details. We’re only 26 backers away from revealing the full colour, painted artwork for the Kickstarter Exclusive Dust Jacket hardback edition.
14 days, still not given up hope…not quite.
