In case you were wondering how it all went down, this is a transparent account of what happened:
• I created a coloring book from 30 drawings I made of genderless, raceless creatures, feeling their feelings.
• I launched an Indiegogo campaign to help me pay to print the books.
• Each book cost about $8.30, which doesn't include packing/shipping etc., so I needed a boost to get going. ...Although I won't actually get the money from the campaign for a couple weeks, I wanted to make sure I would at least break even on the project.
• People ordered 58 books !! Today at the Go West Craft Fest, I sold 21 books, and I had left 6 in Bethlehem, which people bought from my parents pretty quickly. I had ordered 100 books, so the day before my campaign ends, I have 15 books left. #math
• This is so cool. It feels so amazing that people are so into it, and I'm going to get more printed.
• Oh, this means you probably can't order any more for Christmas/Winter holidays this year... but you can for January 2015.
I love you all! Thank you for your support.
