Kickstarter Joy!

The Diving Universe Kickstarter ended last night with a real bang. We ended up at 11x our ask, which amazed me. I had envisioned this Kickstarter as a fan-love project, one that only true fans would be interested in. I expected enough $5 and $15 backers to get us to $2000. Instead, people surprised me, right from the start.

I was spot-on about where the most backers would be, but I hadn’t expected so many. Nor had I expected how many people wanted to sample the Diving universe, even before we achieved some of the bigger stretch goals.

All of this is a long way of saying thank you to everyone who backed the Kickstarter. You’ve really humbled me and pleased me at the same time. I appreciate how much you folks like the series, and how much you’re willing to support it.

Thank you!

    When you mention the rewards, you and Dean don’t talk much about the two books that contain cuts from the novel and the essays that accompany them. As much as I value your fiction, the WMG lectures and workshops and so on (and I really do), just so you know, to me the most remarkable reward are those two books and your essays. Those, to me, will be invaluable.
