I must admit to being thrilled when The Death of Dugath project was named a Kickstarter Staff Pick. Only a small percentage of projects get that distinction, so it was a great honor to have one of the staff championing the project.
So imagine how I felt when I learned that it was selected to be The Publishing Project of the Day! This means we are the featured project on the Publishing Discovery page, which will no doubt get it seen by a lot more people. This is no small feat. At the time I wrote this blog post, there were 629 active publishing projects and only one gets to be the top dog for any given 24-hour period.
Why was it picked? To be honest I don't know, but I'm sure the "chatter" from enthusiastic supporters on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and other social media sites certainly helped to get it it noticed...not to mention it's raised nearly $60,000 in just a bit over a month. We are now down to the final 5 days of the project, so please keep up the good work about spreading the word. If you know someone who you think might like to travel with Royce an Hadrian on this adventure, please reach out and let them know about it.
Your generous support has given The Death of Dulgath a fabulous launch which we should be able to parlay into bookstore and library success. What's more, I'm glad to provide all the perks and extras for the backers - it's a win-win for all of us.
