oh my gosh.  

The Redeemer Kickstarter closed out about an hour ago with 428 backers and €12,251 in funding, which hit the cover art stretch goal with a wee little bit to spare.

That is *well over* a third again the number of backers I’d first dreamed of. It’s nearly *half* again the number I first dreamed of. It’s only 90 backers fewer than NO DOMINION had, which, holy *crap*, that was so far beyond my hopes I didn’t even go there. And I just now at this moment noticed that there were, at the end, 300 e-book backers, which is the number of backers I’d hoped for *entirely*, at the beginning.

I am overwhelmed, grateful, exhausted, and so very very happy right now. Thank you all SO MUCH for your enthusiasm, signal boosts, and patience while went on about it endlessly over the past month. <3

Someone said I should say thanks just by posting a picture of my smile right now, so here you go:


And now Twitter is full of messages that say, “Congratulations! Now get writing!” so I guess I’d better get back to work…especially since I’ve just arranged with Octocon for a REDEEMER book launch party there next October. Come one, come all! ♥

HURRAY! And you'll get the cover art! :D

I'm excited to see what you do with this and what your artist will do for the cover! Glad to be a part of the support!
