So then, the Heroes Wanted Kickstarter has come and it has gone, and the end result is...we're in exactly the same place we were before we started. I don't know who this "we" is that I keep referring to, there's just me here. Maybe I'm including the dog.
It would have been awesome if the Kickstarter had funded but, well, it is what it is, and even though it didn't succeed I was still hugely encouraged by the support I did get.
It's hard to say why the project failed - it could be I was over ambitious in my goal, or that the rewards weren't quite good enough, or just that I am still terrible at promotion, despite the best efforts of my friend, Alex (she despairs, the poor woman).
I shall think about it more.
I'm still undecided what to do with Heroes Wanted, whether to try to cut my other costs and pay for editing myself, or to maybe even try going to a traditional publisher.
It will appear one day, sooner or later!
Anyway, I'm going to get back to writing the sequel to Crystal Eyes, and mulling over some other potentially cool ideas I've got.
Here's a vid where I waffle on a bit more.
