THANK YOU BACKERS!
What an incredible month this turned out to be! It feels like a year ago that we held the launch party, and here we are just 30 days later with a funded project and over 3,300 backers excited to get their hands on over 5,000 HeroBooks.
To each and every backer: I cannot thank you enough for all the pledges, comments, support, and love over the last few weeks. You have made my dreams come true. I’m so freaking excited to make this little book a reality and it’s all thanks to you.
What happens now?
Here is the expected timeline going forward, all dates approximate:
- TODAY – I’ll be sending out the HeroBook Design Questionnaire to all backers shortly, where you’ll be able to provide feedback on the content, layout, and design of the book, vote for the 5th cover color, and give your opinion on ideas for future products.
- May 24th to June 7th – Kickstarter will process your pledge and your card will be charged according to the pledge amount you selected during the campaign.
- June 15th – around this date, I will be emailing your Backer Survey from BackerKit. This survey allows you to select your pledge options and choose your add-ons. You can increase your pledge via your Backer Survey to get additional books and add-ons. This is also how you’ll provide your shipping information.
- July 1st – around this date, we will be finalizing HeroBook and sending the files to our printer.
- July thru August – printing HeroBooks & procuring add-ons
- September – sending HeroBooks & add-ons to our shipping provider(s)
- October – delivering HeroBooks & add-ons around the world!
I need help with my pledge!
Got an issue with billing? Please contact Kickstarter support. Unfortunately I have no control over when or how your payment is processed.
How will I be able to keep track of the campaign?
Right here on the Kickstarter project page! I’ll be posting updates throughout the process above and keep you in the loop about how things are going. If you have email notifications enabled, you’ll get each update in your email the moment it’s available.
Campaign Wrap-up Livestream
Don’t forget about the HeroBook Post-Campaign Livestream happening this Saturday on Twitch at 12pm PT! I’ll be giving away tons of prizes to backers and answering questions about the campaign (backers are still eligible to win even if you’re not watching!). Come say hello and celebrate with me!
