KIckstarter launches is a really big way!

Well, I really shouldn't have been surprised, as I have the best, most supportive readers a writer could wish for, but the Kickstarter for The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter has kicked off in a really incredible way.

As of this writing, we are 76% to fully funding and it's been less than 24 hours!

Riyria Fantasy Novel: Disappearance of Winter's Daughter -- Kicktraq Mini

Here's some of the really impressive stats:

  • $10,000 raised in the first 10 minutes of the launch!
  • $18,452 raised in the first hour
  • Currently the 22nd highest-funded Fiction Kickstarter in the US based on total pledges
  • Currently the 18th most-backed Fiction Kickstarter in the US based on # of backers

If we look at this project compared to my other Kickstarters, it blows them out of the water. The following data is for first-day sales as tracked through Kicktraq:

$ Pledges
     # Backers     
The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter             $34,234      
The Death of Dulgath
Hollow World

At the time it ended, The Death of Dulgath was the 2nd (or maybe 3rd, I forget) highest funded Fiction Kickstarter. It's now currently #6 (#2 as far as most-backed). With such good first-day results, we may just be able to surpass it!  Thanks everyone for all the support.


  1. This is great news. I can't wait to see my copy arriving in the mail. 😬

  2. That is really great. Do you have any ideas on why you have almost double the number of backers versus Death of Dulgath? I was wondering if more exposure from your Age of... books helped pump the numbers?

  3. Very nice post.really I apperciate your blog.Thanks for sharing.keep sharing more blogs.
