It took a week, but Cade and the Last Starship is fully funded! That means that starting in September, a new six-book series will be a reality. We’ll explore with Cade as he reaches the darkest depths of the uninhabited areas of the Ark, discover what’s gone terribly wrong, and hopefully(!) save the last of humanity.
And the last week has been crazy. I started so optimistic, and then pessimistic, and then… well, you get the idea. I may have been checking on the campaign multiple times a minute.
But almost from the beginning, I pretty much expected us to get this far. But now that we’ve funded… well, now I can have some fun.
It’s time to really dream about those stretch goals. It’s time to see just how far we can get!
It’s also been really neat seeing who is funding. No, I’m not going to name names! I do want to protect people’s privacy. I can say that there are both a number of repeat backers and a number of new-to-us backers.
I love that both are happening. Repeat backers mean that Madelyn wasn’t a fluke. At least some people enjoyed it enough to want to back another series from me. That makes me excited!
We’re also getting new backers! We’re doing a lot of swapping with other Kickstarter campaigns. That means that on Dawnsbrook’s social media as well as in our Kickstarter updates, we’re sharing other projects that we’re excited about. I’m being picky here. I’m not shouting out projects for the sake of shouting them out. I’m only sharing projects I’m honestly interested in, and the bulk of them I’ve personally backed. In return, many of them are mentioning Cade!
And all that leads me to smile. I can relax; we’re funded. I can have fun. We’ve got three weeks left to get more support and make Cade even better! Diagrams of the Ark? In-universe fan fiction? A role playing game with adventure modules? Oh yeah. So much more is coming!
Let the fun begin!
