Right off the bat, let me say “holy crap,” “wowza,” and “awoooga.”
Thank you so much for believing in and backing our little spaghetti wizard kickstarter in the first 24 hours! The support from everyone has absolutely blown us away.
Within the first 24 hours, we are officially more than 30% funded at $6,037.
We plan to keep that ball rolling throughout July with a series of appearances and ad spots on tabletop podcasts. We’ve also got some good, old-fashioned promoted social media posts, and you know we’re prepping a whole bunch of free content hand-crafted by our little content goblins.
AND literally, just as I was about to hit send on this update, we got an unexpected email from Mr. Kickstarter himself.
YEP. We’ve been selected to be one of Kickstarter’s Projects We Love.
This means Fat Magic will be highlighted and featured across the website, get a “Project We Love” badge for the main page, and potentially show up in one of Kickstarter’s newsletters. That's going to be a MASSIVE help putting Fat Magic in front of as many eyes as possible and hitting those stretch goals. And it wouldn't have been possible without your support in the first 24 hours.
Needless to say, we are stunned and still processing.
Speaking of processing, a few folks have inquired about shipping costs. Many of the rewards are currently in development, so we don’t know the exact weight of everything just yet, which is how shipping is calculated. We’re working with our suppliers to get you our best estimates in the next few days. Everything will ship worldwide from Baltimore, Maryland.
Of course, advertising strategies and shipping rates are cool and all, but you ain’t here for pie charts and graphs. You’re here for pie wizards and graph barbarians (disclaimer: there are no graph barbarians in Fat Magic).
Over the next year or so, I’m going to take y’all on a tour of the Bouillabaisse and show you just how weird and wonderful it can be. (Which reminds me: If you haven’t claimed your free PDF of ACT I of Fat Magic, now’s as good a time as any! Click here to download.)
We’re all swept off our sweet little feet here with how well the first 24 hours have gone. So, for now, I’d like to leave you with a WIP of four of my favorite characters from Fat Magic by artist Jess Kuczynski.
I can’t wait to tell y’all about them.
P.S. We are currently working on adding add-on rewards! Here’s how those will be priced, in case there’s something from a higher tier you still want to snag.
