I don’t mean to make Peter look like an unsupportive ass, he’s not! I’m glad he’s making light of this. In the grand scheme of things, this crowdfunding of mine isn’t important enough to justify getting so worked up about it. And yet I do!
However, if you would like to help Peter, me, or my butt cheeks relax, consider getting your book now rather than later. I don’t know how that would be beneficial to you, but the early bird discount definitely is and that’s ending in less than 12 hours.
P.S. I’ve heard from quite a few people who they wanted to support but don’t have a credit card. If that’s the case for you, please reach out to me by replying to this email or emailing Zoop (firstname.lastname@example.org) because we can offer other means of payment.
And if you have any questions, please let me know!
I wonder if marketing recipe is one part panic, one part copy, dash of what the f, bake and cross your fingers?
Your post meets my needs for truth, honesty, feeling feelings, clarity and awe so many gifts received of being in community creating.
I am offering a few data resources if they are welcome as an ackowledgment of the truth of those clenched butt cheeks, an appreciation for the dark humor of the reality of those cheeks - and just naming how hard it is as a creator to ride the funding curve for any crowdsource project. I see how hard you are working and am cheering for your absolute success.
