Kickstarter, June 2014 – Funding Unsuccessful
This campaign expired unsuccessfully this afternoon. The ride has been (mostly) wonderful, and I’m glad I took this step. You can still stick around to find out what happens to Josiah Turn – he’s in it for the long haul.
Only about 68 hours remain on this Kickstarter campaign. But I spent too much of my life quitting to give up now. There’s still time for you to preorder my book and help me accomplish my goals. There’s still time to offer your money to support freelance editors, small printers, and independent filmmakers. There’s still time. What are you waiting for?
