Over the weekend, the Shotguns & Sorcery drive on Kickstarter cracked $4,000! We took off like a rocket over the first few days and busted through the first goal in less than two days. Now, though, we’re in the middle stretch, during which most Kickstarters settle into a long, slow burn.
Usually that all changes in the last week or so of the campaign, when people realize they’re running out of time to join in and the pledge graph hockey-sticks up. I went with a slightly shorter campaign this time around, so that’s less than two weeks off now, and I’m not taking anything for granted. I’m stumping around the internet, looking for ways to get out the word about this project.
If you have idea or a venue you’d like to share, let me know. I’m open for interviews, guest blogs, shameless plugging, etc.
My next traditionally published novel, Carpathia, ships at the end of the month — either February 28 or March 1, depending on where you are and what format you prefer — and the next issue of the Magic: The Gathering comic I’m writing for IDW should be out around then too. Those should both give me lots of chances to plug Shotguns & Sorcery, and I plan on taking as much advantage of that as I can.
Meanwhile, if you can help spread the word, please do. Hand out copies of “Goblintown Justice” to anyone who can read. And if you like it, don’t be shy about posting a review of it, either on your own site or at Amazon or any of the other retailers who carry it. It all helps.
So far, I’m thrilled to see how well this grand experiment is going, and I have all my backers to blame for that.
