The Neurodiversiverse is a Kickstarter “project we love”!

Halfway through our campaign, over two-thirds to our goal!

Our Kickstarter campaign for The Neurodiversiverse: Alien Encounters has already reached over $3,400 of our $5,000 goal, with just over two weeks left! Thank you so much to everyone who’s backed, you’re helping to make sure we’ll be able to pay our authors and artists professional rates!

This is a larger funding goal than we’ve had for any of our past crowdfunding campaigns, so having made it this far is truly wonderful.

Selected as a Kickstarter “project we love”!

Project we love. Kickstarter. Circular badge with a heart in the middle and words around the outside.

Kickstarter has a magical, behind-the-scenes mechanism where someone decides a project is a “project we love”. We don’t know how it happens, but we’re so pleased it happened to us! What it means is that now new people will see the campaign, and may be inspired to back it.

Announcing our stretch goals!

Once the Kickstarter campaign hits its funding goal, that means we’ll get the money that is raised. But if we exceed our goals, we’d love to give our backers more. We’ll unlock additional stretch goals as the amount raised reaches new dollar amounts.

Briefly, our stretch goals are:

  • $7,500 – Bookmarks! We’ll include a bookmark for every backer who’s selected physical rewards.
  • $10,000 – Mystery Swag! We’re really excited about the additional goodies we have planned for backers if we hit $10k – but we’ll announce them when we hit our funding goal of $5,000.
  • $12,500 – Even More Fun Stuff! Ditto! We’re working on secret plans to fill out backers’ goodie bags and digital inboxes, but we’ll announce this stretch goal if we reach our funding goal!
  • $15,000 – Audiobook Edition! We really want to produce an audiobook edition, both because we love audiobooks, and because we know so many readers need an audio edition for accessibility. If we raise this much money, everyone backing for $10 or more will get the digital audiobook when it’s ready.
  • $20,000 – The Neurodiversiverse: Binary Stars! If we hit this amount of money, we’ll not only be able to pay for this book, but also put the rest toward a sequel anthology!

So, please back the Kickstarter campaign to help us achieve our stretch goals, and share it with your friends who love bookmarks, audiobooks, and/or neurodiversity!
