We are a couple days shy of halfway through our campaign, and we've not only hit but already surpassed the 50% mark. We are so thrilled, we're offering a token of our appreciation: all backers at the $20 level and above will receive instructions on "How to Draw a Darkling in 10 Easy Steps" as part of their order.
We got to test the instructions out this past weekend at the Barnes & Nobles B-Fest. Marcus hosted a table where we got to talk about the book and draw Darklings with a bunch of rad kids, and it was a lot of fun.
Earlier last week I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the Benicia Herald, and "I Found a Darkling" was featured on the front page. Take a look at the article here: http://beniciaheraldonline.com/benicia-couple-collaborate-on-childrens-book-raise-funds-through-kickstarter/
And our interview with Reality Comics should be posted at some point this week, so we will share that when it's available.
Kickstarter largely start out strong and then fall into a slump in the middle, with another surge near the end - I'm so grateful that since the beginning we have received fairly steady support throughout our campaign. We need to keep it going to reach our goal, so if you haven't had a chance to yet, this would be a great time to go check out the campaign at www.ifoundadarkling.com/fund, and if you're not able to pledge then just sharing is still greatly appreciated support.
Thank you to everyone!
