And so, with a lurch the size of two people realizing that Kickstarter didn't bother to spend 1-3 days checking their cred, the Studio Wondercabinet holiday Kickstarter "The King in Yellow Christmas Cards" launched on Monday. Daniel and I were both getting over a bug we'd picked up at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival the previous weekend. We'd expected a minimum of 24 hours to prepare after uploading our project to Kickstarter as Kickstarter figured out whether to trust us with the keys to the crowd-funding car. Instead, we... were... live!
So... hi there!
Our campaign funded in the first 24 hours and is currently at twice our original goal with 26 days to go. People are liking and sharing news of our project with an enthusiasm we didn't really expect for this strange little 19th C. story cycle-- thank you, weird fiction fans! Yesterday Kickstarter made us one of their "Projects We Love". We're sorting out the details of stretch goals and new levels and will update the KS page in the next couple of days.
Thank you, friends.
