Congrats to Kelly on Her Book Being Funded!

Congrats to Kelly on raising an impressive $26,478 for the production of her book, The Girl Who Would Be King.

I can’t wait to read it.

Yay Kelly!

I, uh, didn’t get a chance to help fund it (damn my funds!).

But that just means that there’s someone who’ll buy it when it comes out! YAY!

I was glad to throw a couple bucks Kelly’s way. There was so much swag in the middle tier options it was really hard to resist upping to three figures, especially as the deadline approached. I was glad she met her final stretch goal and I look forward to getting my copy.

It’s been a while since I’ve read any YA lit, but I’m hoping it’s something my girls can enjoy if it turns out not to be to my taste. But I suspect I’ll enjoy it too.

Thanks Brian – and thanks for so graciously hosting those chapter updates – I got some nice traffic directly from CSBG – which is awesome.

@Travis: It’s true…it’s good not to have tapped my WHOLE audience before it’s even released. :)

@joshschr: Thanks so much for the support. I hope you do like it – but do be careful with your girls – depending on their ages – it’s definitely upper tier teen. I say 15 should be pretty safe, but below that…tread with caution – and always wise to check it out yourself first if you’re concerned!

Dang, Kelly! You got more than 3X your goal? Congrats. Promise you’ll still visit the blog after you get famous.

Or after the movie comes out…

@Kelly: Thanks for the heads up. I definitely plan to read it first and make the call if it’s appropriate for my girls. I’ve got a shelf of YA horror that I plan to let my 9 year old dig into in a few years. TGWWBK can sit on that shelf looking pretty until my girls are mature enough to handle it.

Congrats again.
