I did a 14-hour drawing stream today to help bring awareness to the Kickstarter. When I started, the Kickstarter was at 38%, and by the time I finished the number went up to 44%. To say I succeeded in bringing the numbers up is an understatement.

I'm honestly floored that there are people who believe in my silly comic about a spoiled cat princess enough to push this, and I especially want to thank the other artists who streamed with me today: Atrox, Myeecez, CaffeineRabbit, Pyanny, Wowright, Chaoko, Kaoru, Muggy, Stratica, and DarwinTFish.

There's still more to go, but it's going in the right direction, at least!

Heads up, I'm doing another marathon stream this Saturday.



If you want me to commission a sketch (or you already made a pledge and haven't received a sketch yet), let me know and I'll draw it this Saturday live!

Re: I have a Kickstarter for my book! 60% funded!

Post by Mr. Big (?) » Tue Feb 05, 2019 9:06 pm

Made it over $3,000 today! Just $2,000 and the book is fully funded. But there's less than 2 weeks left, so gotta hurry!

Gonna do another multistream this Saturday. And I'm still taking sketch commissions for $10 or more through Kickstarter pledge.

9 days left and we are up to 72%. We might have a chance at this! Still, we need to raise a little under $1,400 for the book.

I'm still taking sketch commissions. In addition, I'm offering this:

Hmm... :ponder:
Giving rewards to the next backers is not fair to the backers who backed before.
It'd be fairer to randomly give one reward to the pool of all backers, and it'd be an incentive to back the project despite the reward announcement post being a bit older.

I'm not a marketing expert but this looks more like an act of desperation that doesn't bode well on the confidence in a successful Kickstarter and product than being a controlled marketing ploy.

I've seen others do it before, so I'm just doing it. I figure if it's okay for them to do it, then so am I :pinkieshrug:

I can give 10 extra copies to random backers before and after this is taken (the next 10 who pledge will automatically get it, plus 10 random ones). Is that fair?
