The Wee Beasties: Bedtime Kickstarter ended with $4,122 and 115 unique backers. That means we were able to reach FOUR stretch goals:
- The enhanced eBook narrated by the one and only Brian Lewis
- The addition of the Wee Yeti
- The addition of the Wee Troll
- The addition of the Wee Kobold
So, now that the madness of the Wee Beasties: Bedtime has come to a close, the real fun can now begin!
We’ve submitted the storyboard to our illustrator, Marina Neira. For the next several months we will be in near constant communication as she crafts each Wee Beastie with her talent and creativity. We plan to give our very generous backers a sneak peek of many of the illustrations as we receive them.
The final manuscript – save the verse for the Wee Kobold – has been revised and the punctuation tweaked by Nina and Beth of Launch Pad Media to ensure a smooth and easy read for our wee geeklings.
We will be reaching out to those who chose the Wee Ogre reward tier to find out their Easter egg ideas for the book. We will also be reaching out to those who chose the Wee Manticore reward tier to find out which Wee Beastie they would like for an original drawing by Marina.
I am so grateful to be able to collaborate with such a wonderful group of creative and skilled people to make this book a reality. My heartfelt thanks go to Marina, Nina, Beth, and Brian for coming on board and making Wee Beasties: Bedtime even better.
Most of all, I am so very thankful to each and every one of you who supported us by backing and/or sharing the Wee Beasties: Bedtime Kickstarter. I am so humbled by the outpouring of support from friends and strangers. I delighted by the wonderful feedback and genuine excitement for this project. Thank you for your trust! I will spend the next several months making sure you receive an amazing book and eBook when everything is said and done.
