It's a wrap!

I'm a few days late in this post, but for good reasons. When the Kickstarter ended I had three chapters left to write for The Death of Dulgath, so I've been busy finishing it. Today I'm writing the LAST chapter...and then it's off to Robin, who is a very busy woman as of late.

So, how did everything wind up?  We raised $73,163 from 1,750 backers.  This makes us one of the top fiction projects of all time! (3 out of 6,634 projects puts us in the top 0.05%)

It was an amazing experience, made easy thanks to my incredible wife, Robin. Thank you all for joining us and making the Kickstarter such an event.
