At 3 pm on Sunday the 18th October, I pressed the button and launched my little book project on the Kickstart website, Taa Raaa, I shouted as it went live. I then realised the enormity of what I had done. Not only had I offered a weekend stay at our house, complete with a wine tasting at my favourite cantina, as part of the rewards but the realisation, that I might not receive any backers suddenly hit home…… I would have to change my name from Pecora Nera to Billy No Mates!!!
Driving through Asti later that evening my phone blipped… I received the following message Hooray! Susan Fischer just backed your project. followed almost immediately by Hooray! Jo Ellen Prutz just backed your project. To say I am excited is an understatement, there are three questions that need answering. 1) Will Mrs Sensible be able to put up with my current elevated level of excitement? 2) Will the project reach its goal? 3) Will I have to tell Mrs Sensible about the ‘Spend a weekend at our house reward?’
The wonderful Kickstart Backers are:-
Susan Fischer one very cool lady
Jo Ellen Prutz who is beautiful and obviously also generous
Danie Cutter known for being utterly amazing
Please feel free to go over to my kickstart page, one of the rewards available is a signed book or just back me with thrupence or even just make me happy by spreading this around Facebook and other social media etc.
Ohhh and ASP (at some point) I might have to tell Mrs Sensible about the weekend invite reward
Sending you all virtual hugs
