It is *surprisingly* nerve-wracking to launch a Kickstarter, even if you've run half a dozen or more crowdfund projects. But we're doin' it, ladies and gentlemen!

First! Let me invite you to read the Redeemer Proposal Chapters and submerge yourself into the world of the Redeemer!

Then when you've just gotten invested and find that the proposal comes to an end, dash over to the REDEEMER Kickstarter and help make it happen as a project! Go little Kickstarter go!

(I will now gnaw my knuckles for the next 30 days. :))

(holy shit, there's already a pledge and i haven't even posted this anywhere!)
Current Mood: excited

*grin* That bodes well.

. . . Jesus. *blinks* Every time I look at it (which has been, like, 3 times in 5 minutes?), the numbers keep leaping.

Awesome. *delighted grin*

Man, I'm eager to read this. In no small part because historical urban fantasy makes me WAY more excited about reading more urban fantasy than I have been in a while.

Also because I'm working on a Warder universe origin story set in 1953 Seattle, so I wanna see if this works too. ;D

1. You should read DB Jackson's Thieftaker Chronicles for Revolutionary War urban fantasy!

2. Making it historical is the exciting thing to me, too, yeah. It's a way out of being stuck in second gear, like. A way to redefine genre expectations and stuff. We'll see how it goes! *fingers crossed & hugs*!!!

I do in fact have Jackson on Mount To Read! I'll see about bumping that book up the queue.

Good luck! :) Cheering you on!

I do know, which is why the thanks to the artist on the Kickstarter page says thanks for the image that has become known as Rosie to generations of Americans! :)

Auuuugh. Keep reminders out, because I just tried to pledge (twice) and got a 'we can't process this for some reason'.

I'll try again some other time. :P

I got that error when this first came across my LJ this morning (Dallas time) and again just now. Do you use NoScript? I temporarily allowed all, but in between clicking the button after giving my credit card information, when it's daisy-wheeling just before the "can't process" message, the NoScript icon briefly gets the red circle with the line through it. Only it's a transitional page, not one that I can actually hit the button and temporarily allow whatever is being blocked.

I'll try from my ipad tomorrow instead, once I dig up my kickstarter password. I rely too much on Firefox remembering that stuff for me.

Yeah, I do use NoScript, but even enabling all scripts and trying it I got the error again this morning. :/

I'll try again fresh from a different browser, but thanks for corroborating what I think the issue likely is. :)

I could have sworn Kickstarter used to take Paypal? Will sign up sometime when I'm near my credit card. Looking good!

Usually I pay through Amazon USA, and I think it didn't let me because this is a UK Kickstarter. :-(

Kickstarter never took Paypal, but I don't know why Amazon USA wouldn't work...

So I used my credit card! Glad to support this story.
