Well look at that! With 36 hours to spare, Risuko has crossed the dreaded Kickstarter 100% funding threshold. Risuko has truly become a flying squirrel!
Thank you so much to all of you who have pledged your support to the Kickstarter campaign — and especially to those of you who increased it, as well as those who’ve let their friends know! Every pledge counts, and I truly appreciate your help.
I’ve been thinking about stretch goals — incentives above and beyond the ones I’ve already offered — and I think I’ve come up with a good one:
For every $100 pledged over $1000, I will share a prequel short story with all backers
I’ve been working on some pieces as a way of exploring the various characters’ backstories. Risuko is written in the first person, and so I’ve had fun getting to explore the thoughts and experiences of some of the other folks in the book.
I’ve already started pieces about Risuko’s patron Lady Chiyome, about her best friends Emi and Aimaru, and about Chiyome-sama‘s more-than-a-maid Mieko, and I could write many more. They would be spoiler-free for the book, but I think would give you a richer understanding of what’s happening in Risuko. If enough folks pledge before the deadline (Friday, March 4, 6:30pm Pacific), maybe I’ll be able to put together an ebook collection to share with you wonderful folks.
What do you think?
If you want to help us reach those stretch goals or know someone who you think might enjoy helping, send them to risuko.net/kickstarter. And thanks again!
