Kickstarter Update: Some Story-Behind-The Story. Plus, Day 1 Rocked. Day 2's Rockier.

I've got a new post at Black Gate about where "The Imlen Bastard" was hiding before I picked it for my first experiment in crowdfunding and self-publishing.

The Great News: On the first day of the 30-day campaign, so many of you rushed to pledge that we hit 18% of the starting goal. That's a strong start.

The Meh News: Day 2 is a lot quieter.

The first three days are really important. Kickstarter aficionados who aren't already familiar with me or my work -- people who just like looking for cool projects to back -- like to back winners. How the first three days go seems to be a big part of how they choose which projects to take a chance on.

So I need to pull out all the stops to get back to the Day 1 momentum.

If you know fantasy readers, art lovers, and audiobook readers who might like what I'm up to with The Imlen Bastard, please do point them over here.

All suggestions for things I haven't thought of, or maybe should do more of, to get the word out would be very welcome.

Meanwhile, my uncharacteristically large collection of exclamation points and I need to get back to work!
