Last Day of the Imminent Danger IndieGoGo Campaign! Get Your Swag Before It’s Too Late!

The title says it all, but basically today is the last day of my IndieGoGo campaign for Imminent Danger And How to Fly Straight into It. That means it’s your last day to nab a signed copy of the book, plus assorted awesome swag like mousepads, coasters, bookmarks, art cards, and so on and so forth.

Don’t forget about the stretch goal — if we break $600, everyone who contributed (except for the $3 perk) will get a bonus art card of the gorgeous new Chasing Nonconformity cover! We’re at $593 right now — so close!

Anyway, this will be my last post about the campaign before it comes to an end — although I’m sure I’ll do a post or two reflecting on how the campaign went, lessons learned, wisdom gained, etc. Until then, as a special favor to me, please consider sharing the campaign on the social media outlet of your choosing. It’s the last day, and I want to go out with a bang!

Here’s the link again to the campaign. There are assorted buttons on the campaign page that make it really easy to share. Thank you so much to everyone who’s contributed already, to everyone who will be contributing today, and to everyone who has so kindly shared the campaign with their friends and family. You’re all amazing, this campaign has been so much fun to plan and run, and I can’t wait to do it again for when Chasing Nonconformity drops in the spring!

 

Unrelated media of the day:

People were very upset when I referenced my roommate’s adorable cats in my last post and didn’t provide a photo, so here it is! (They’re not cuddling on the chair, but they are cuddling in the air, and chair rhymes with air, so I think it counts.)

Vlog #8 — In which 100 copies of my book arrive!

Remember how I was very amused a few days ago by the fact that it cost less money to buy my own book from a third party source, rather than direct from the publisher (iUniverse)? Well, the 100 copies I ordered through Chapters.Indigo.ca arrived yesterday, and they’re glorious. Share in my joy with me via my latest vlogging attempt:

So they’re all here, they’re awesome, and now I have to figure out what to do with them all. Definitely giveaways of some sort … I’ll have to look into a book signing … a couple copies donated to the library … and then whatever else I can come up with.

As for the randomly faded dropcaps in the softcover version, I’ve contacted iUniverse about it, and they’re looking into a solution. Mother is righteously outraged on my behalf (“Your book consultant assured you that the printer copy was just a fluke, and now you’ve got 50 copies with that same fluke! You should be furious with them for lying to you! They need to fix this immediately and apologize!”), whereas I am taking a more zen approach. Expect the worst, and nothing can disappoint you. It’s working out well so far. I’m not going to let up until iUniverse figures out why this is happening and fixes it, obviously, and I’ll explain that I’m displeased, but I don’t think anger is the way to go.

Other than that … life is good. Got ma books, got ma magnets, got ma … slippers? There’s no stopping me now!!!
