An important announcement… a change in the ordering!
Finally the heat of this Desert is upon us and so has been our Kickstarter Campaign. I don’t like to use the word defeat, I will instead use "naiveté". It is a failure due to my poor thinking that 1000 books could be pre-ordered in a month’s time. I realized today that it is not going to happen and honestly I feel really bad about all of yous that have pledged. At the same time it has been a good run and the sale of the Photo Book has now moved on to Blurb. I don’t think it was truly the number, it has been the time as books are not gadgets, impulse purchases… They are books and even 60 days would have maybe saved the day but I was not allowed to change.
My naiveté came from while we are almost reaching 5 million visitors on these, thousands of Friends on Facebook, Instagram also which automatically posts on Twitter from our account.
The upside is the fact that it is now available also in e Book and PDF downloads. I must say that it looks really good on a tablet, a bit small on a phone! It can also be downloaded with i Tunes but the i Book itself is under Apple’s revision which could take about two weeks. Yes, the hard copy has jumped in price. I could have cut back quite a bit with a spiral bound and regular paper, smaller size versus the present 11 x 13, but, I really wanted a quality Photo Coffee Table Book.
I have learned a lot from Kickstarter, the fact that many prepare with interminable hours on the Internet for generally six months before launching a campaign. I am not ready to do that but found a couple projects very doable for next winter when we slow down our pace.
