Riyria Kickstarter, how far will it go!

The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter Kickstarter has done amazingly well!  Yes, we're fully funded, which means there WILL be hardcover editions of the book (rare, limited, and regular) and we've already hit two stretch goals which will include everyone's name in the ebook and the creation of a searchable on-line glossary.
  • Here's jut a bit about what's happened so far: 
  • $34,500 raised in the first 12 hours
  • Fully funded $47,600 in the first 54 hours
  • $56,144 raised in the first 130 hours
  • 1,321 backers (8th most-backed US backed fiction project of all time
  • Two stretch goals reached next level is $3,856 away (custom bookmarks)
Given how well it's done has Robin speculating at the final numbers. So she thought it would be fun to do a little contest and have others join in.

So here's the deal. We'll give a limited edition of The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter to two people:

  •  The one who guesses the total number of backers the closest 
  • The one who guesses the final amount the closest. 
Now, you DO NOT have to be a backer to participate in this contest, and if you're a winner and already have a limited edition, we'll give you the choice of receiving a second one (to give as a friend) or give you a credit back on your pledge that is equal to the value of the book ($50). Sound like fun?

Here's some data I've collected so far to help with your guesses. First, the amount of funding we've seen so far (plotted over the number of hours of the Kickstarter.

And here is he same data for the # of backers.

And here is the link where you can add your guesses.

Now, of course, the closer to the end of the contest, the easier it will be to guess, so we'll stop taking guesses on October 17th. Also, you can put in multiple guesses. If you put in more than one in a day, we'll take the latest one as your official guess.

I think this will be a lot of fun. So put on your thinking cap, look at the data, and make your best guess as to where we'll end up. If you're smart, you'll get a free book!
