I’m just sayin’.  

I’m sure many of you will be familiar with Order of the Stick, a long-running web comic about the adventures of a stick-figure D&D group.

OOTS has just completed a Kickstarter project to reprint the series. The Kickstarter’s goal was about $58,000.

It closed a couple of hours ago at $1,254,120.

Yes, that says one point two five million dollars.

I think this is a good time to take the opportunity to mention that if Teh Intarwebs would like to pay me a million dollars, I will happily write Teh Interwebs two direct-market books a year for the next decade, and let the chips fall where they may as far as traditional publishing is concerned.

I’m just sayin’. :)

My son & husband read OOTS consistently (and we have the books).

I can see how he reached his goal - there forums there are a large community, and they discuss any and everything.

But the *idea* of hand addressing & mailing almost 15,000 packages makes me freeze up.

You don't have to.

If you have 15,000 orders, that's time to start investigating commercial printing and fulfilment deals.

If the fundraiser said, "and you'll get a handwritten letter of thanks from me", though, without the vital words "the first thousand will get ...", that's another matter!

Make many more offers like that and I'm pretty sure we can rustle up the wherewithall
