Hey, all! So we hit $7,000 (actually $7,030) this morning on the official Tarot of Bones IndieGoGo campaign, just two weeks after it went live–woohoo, and THANK YOU!!!!!! This means that we’re now over 140% funded, AND we’ve reached the first stretch goal, and I will be adding a Happy Squirrel card to the official Tarot of Bones deck.
I’d also like to announce the next two stretch goals:
If this IndieGoGo campaign reaches $9,000 before it ends, once the Tarot of Bones deck and book are out, I will offer a free Livestream class on how to use the Tarot of Bones exclusively for IndieGoGo backers. For those who can’t make it, I will email the video to you afterward, and I will wait a month before I put it up on YouTube for everyone to see. This will happen in the latter half of 2016 (unless for some unknown reason I have to release the deck and book later than Summer 2016).
And if the campaign reaches $12,000 before it ends, I will record an audiobook version of the Tarot of Bones book! This will be useful not just for people who are better audio learners than readers, but also for people who may have limited vision. I will be recording it at home, so this will not be a pro-level audiobook with a big-name celebrity reader, but I promise to do the very best that I can with freeware like Audacity. I plan for the audiobook to be released within a year as both a downloadable file and a CD after the hardcopy deck and book are out. All IndieGoGo backers will get the file version of the audiobook for free.
I’ll be posting pictures of the newest Tarot of Bones assemblage piece tomorrow. In the meantime, if you haven’t yet backed the campaign or you know someone who would like to, now’s a great time to join the party!
Let me suggest another stretch goal in between this one and the 12K one, and you put it like at 8K and maybe do the OTHER card from that deck, not just the Happy Squirrel, but also do XXV – The Fiance. You will be the only deck that I have heard of that will have that in it.
Thanks for the idea! At this point I’m already racking up a lot of obligations for myself outside of the deck and book, so I can’t really add in a second “new” card.
