EDITING, EDITING, EDITING
Anna Ruadh is now in the final stages of editing. It won’t be too long now before she is off to the printer!
PATRON LIST – PROOF COMING SOON
For our Kickstarter backers with names on the Patron List: please keep an eye out for the proof of the Patron List, which is COMING SOON (probably by Friday April 10). You will have ONE CHANCE to PROOFREAD your name(s) in the Patron List and approve or request corrections, before it is printed in the book.
NEW CHAPTER ILLUSTRATIONS
Here’s a sneak peek at one of the new chapter head illustrations that cover illustrator Etta Moffatt is creating for Anna Ruadh! Introducing Bonny the Geranium:
We’re thrilled with the new illustrations! There will be 38 in all, one at the beginning of each chapter. As you recall, after we reached our $15,000 goal right 2 days before June 30 last year, the illustrator promised to create these if we reached our stretch goal of $2,000 in additional pledges. Thank you to all of you for making this happen!
DON’T MISS OUR MESSAGES
PLEASE NOTE that we can only communicate with you via the Kickstarter site, e-mails, and social media. If all of our e-mails are going to your spam, we have no other way to contact you. We can’t tag or single out individual patrons publicly on social media. We don’t have your phone number. For some of you we don’t even know your real name.
Unfortunately for a very small handful of our Kickstarter supporters, your spam filters are still intercepting ALL of our e-mail messages. We can’t get through to you. But it’s entirely UP TO YOU to make sure you see our e-mails and provide the information we need to fulfill your reward. PLEASE check your e-mail spam/junk folder regularly, add this address to your contact list, log into your Kickstarter profile AT LEAST once a month (once a week for the Patron List backers!), and check with any of your friends who backed us, so nobody misses important announcements.
ADVICE FROM NOVA SCOTIA
The premier of Nova Scotia has just told us to “Stay the blazes home!” It’s great advice.
Stay safe, stay healthy, stay the blazes at home if you can, and again we thank essential workers in healthcare, grocery stores, transportation, government, and industry.
