Today, March 16, Tessalation! got fully funded on Kickstarter! Eureka, we did it! Couldn't have done this without the support of so many wonderful people in my life and so many others whom I have never even met!
What comes next?
This campaign is only halfway over, so I'll be spending the next two weeks taking it even broader -- reaching out to journalists and bloggers, contacting people in my chosen audiences directly. I'm far from done. My goal was always to get a printed copy of the book in the hands of people who want and need it, and that goal stands.
But now I have some new goals -- and that is to reach as many people with Tessa as possible in this short time. This will mean a lot of cold-emailing, which I'm not particularly excited about, but I am motivated to do this as well as humanly possible for all of the people who took time and their hard-earned dollars to back a book that doesn't exist yet.
Thank you, thank you, for your support of Tessalation!
Emily Grosvenor, author of Tessalation!, a children's book about tesselations and patterns in nature.
