We Made It!

Huzzah! Those of you not obsessively clicking on our latest Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/girlgenius/the-city-of-lightning-a-girl-genius-graphic-novel?ref=discovery) every five minutes (which would be us, the people we work with, and my mom {hi, mom!}), might not be aware that we successfully funded our Kickstarter for Girl Genius: City of Lightning! So those fence-sitters amongst you who were waiting to see if we’d actually make it before committing? You may now support us, secure in the knowledge that you will definitely get that book!

In fact, we funded so early, that now we have to craft an increasingly byzantine set of stretch goal rewards.  I am told that there is an identifiable subset of backers that take great delight in trying to get creators to have to commit to exorbitant stretch goals. Many will no doubt remember Rich Burlew’s promise to open an Order of the Stick Fantasyland & Mosh Pit themepark after his wildly successful, multi-million dollar Kickstarter of several years ago. Well, ha ha, skeptics! That’s opening next week! We take inspiration from this.

If people wish to congratulate me in person, they may do so this weekend at Wondercon, where I will be manning the Girl Genius booth (Booth # 1610).
