The big event for me this week was achieving full funding for our Kickstarter campaign to fund the publication of MY LOVE FOR YOU IS THE SUN!! I am grateful for each and every person who supported us, and not just the backers, but everyone who blogged, tweeted, shared and otherwise spread the word and/or offered moral support. It’s not over yet – we still have 2+ weeks to go – but it’s such a blessing to know we have funding for the book and to turn our focus to building our audience.
