OK folks, I'm shredded.
I have been working on the Kickstarter campaign (with the help of Jennifer Nolan of Tamarind Tribal and Deanna Padron Freeman of Devyani) for the last six months. We launch tomorrow, 20 Feb at 9am PST.
I feel like I have been chasing my tail since 1 Jan; my time looks like this ...

Tomorrow my Blog will move to Kickstarter where you'll be able to read my daily posts for the duration of the fundraiser (20 Feb-20 Mar) once you make a pledge and claim your reward. The pledges range from $10 to $5000 (for the truly compassionate, one of the pledges provides me with Peace of Mind.) I hope you love the rewards too, because I'm really excited about them I tried to create rewards that I would want if I were you. Please pledge early because if we get enough attention, KickStarter will flag us as a success story and put us on the main page. You don't pay for the pledge until we reach our goal of
$20,000 so you aren't out-of-pocket for another month, if you're
budgeting around a show or fundraiser.
Please join me on KickStarter tomorrow and thanks for your support!
