I’m thrilled to see Brandon Sanderson embracing Kickstarter as a means for authors to sell directly to readers. It’s a platform I’ve been promoting for years, and I hope the attention his ground-breaking project is garnering will encourage other authors to go this route.
But today I’m here to remind people that we are getting down to the wire on our project to turn Legends of the First Empire hardcovers into a boxset.
A few things to note:
- We fully funded in the first 15 minutes.
- We have currently raised more than $56,000.
- We expected to create about 250 slipcases but it looks like we’ll be doing 1,000 thanks to the high demand (which will allow a few to be available outside of the Kickstarter)
- If you are missing any of the books from the series, you can add them to your order for $25 per. (A savings of $2 – $3 depending on title). And all the books will be signed and come with a custom-designed bookmark.
- We have cleared the first three stretch goals which are providing:
- A foil stamp graphic will be added to the box.
- Backers will get a sneak peak of the first chapter of my new series in August (a year before the book’s release).
- Posters of Marc Simonetti’s artwork are available as an add-on.
- If we can raise another $3,793 we’ll hit our last stretch goal which will make t-shirts an add-on.
- Non-US people can sign-up for “manual adds” at this link. Your postage will vary depending on the country and whether we ship from the US or we have enough orders for overseas fulfillment. If your country and order combination is not on this spreadsheeet, Robin will add them as she processes after you fill out your form.
I hope you’ll check out the project, and if you like what you see, please consider backing it.
