First and foremost, thank you to the nearly 300 backers who have brought in over $13,000 for the Riyria Graphic Novel during the first 24 hours of the Kickstarter. We are over 50% of the way to making this happen, and your enthusiasm is infectious. We've sold out of the early-bird hardcovers, and there are just a handful of early-bird paper back levels left.
It was an amazing 24 hours. Some highlights include:
- More than 20 backers and in excess of $1,000 in the first 4 minutes of the campaign!
- More than 60 backers and in excess of $3,000 in the first hour
- More than 200 backers and in excess of $10,000 in the first seven hours
That's incredible momentum, but we still have a ways to go get to get fully funded. So, if you know a Riyria or Graphic Novel fan, please let them know about the Kickstarter. Even if you've never backed a Kickstarter before, why not make this your first? It's an incredible way to be part of something amazing and you'll get bonus material that you can't get when purchasing through the retail chain. Hope to see you there soon!
