What an unbelievable week it’s been. This time last week I stood before you wondering how long it would take for Antler Boy to fund, and now I sit here beside myself at just how unbelievably well this project has done.

Really quick, the numbers as of this morning:
Ok, so what does all this extra funding mean? Well for starters it means you all get a better book. The book will have a higher production value to it. Better paper, better binding, it’s going to look great.
It means I’ll be able to put more time into the design of the book. Time is money, right? Because of the extra money this campaign has generated it means I can say no to some freelance work that would eat into the time of the making of this book. I want to add some illustrations to the table of contents and introduction and give all the extra stuff that goes into making the book a little more love.
And it also means I can afford to produce an eBook version of it for the kindle, nook, and iPad. Looking into my options for that now.
As this campaign progresses I’m working on some new incentives and stretch goals, so stay tuned and follow me on twitter for more info: @mrjakeparker
