January 23rd, 2019 at 12:00 PM (noon) the campaign for 47 Furious Tails launched. The response from backers was amazing!
In the first twelve hours of the campaign 45 backers pledged $1116 toward the campaign goal of $6500! This was a huge day, particularly when compared to the first launch. I'm thrilled by the response this project has received. (Thank you all!)
Promotion for the campaign:
47 Furious Tails has been promoted in a number of ways. Update posts on the original campaign page have continued as new information became available, the project has been mentioned in every podcast I have appeared on, I've written entries about my mistakes on the first crowdfunding attempt both here and on the Drip page, flyers have gone out at comic shops and events, and I've enlisted the help of several folks who have been sharing the links on social media and on their various channels.
Is it enough? Time will tell but I'm optimistic.
Coming promotions will include a number of podcast interviews. I've been invited to two new shows since the launch (thanks guys!), which can only help raise awareness for the comic and the KickStarter campaign. I'm looking forward to it. This is also a great opportunity to meet new creators and share information/insights which is something I'm always excited about.
I was fortunate to once again appear on the Darkslinger Mafia Podcast to talk about 47 Furious Tails. You can listen to that interview from the link below.
Other cool comics on KickStarter:
There are really interesting titles on KickStarter right now. Below are a few I thought were particularly cool.
If you missed my last blurb on this comic, don't wait, go check out the campaign which has a week left as of this writing. The art is great and I, for one, think the story premise is fantastic.
Boston Metaphysical Society: The Spirit of Rebellion
New on Kickstarter and gaining steam, check this one out quickly before the special commission backer tier is all gone!
Mayo the Cat
Ending in the next few days, this cute book is funded but certainly deserves the shout out. If you have children this looks like a good title to share with them (Disclaimer: I've only read through the KickStarter campaign, I haven't read the book.)
Closing words and shameless self-promotion
People build communities to help each other and make life better. In today's society we do the same as we promote others on social media, review products and write about our own experiences to help others avoid our own mistakes ( 😇 ). I hope you each have great success in your own projects, that you'll learn from my (many) mistakes and that you too will benefit from other content creators offering up their advise and information to help make your path easier.
(Shameless self-promotion time)
I hope you'll check out 47 Furious Tails, Issue One; Cornrows Issue One; Mayo the Cat; and Boston Metaphysical Society: The Spirit of Rebellion. Support the projects by sharing the links on social media and pledge your support if you can.
Thank you all for following my adventures in writing, self-publishing and game design. Until next time please remember, Adventure Awaits.
