    Thanks. More than anything else, I suspect the response is due to the fact that I've been doing this for a while, and thus have a number of fans.

    According to Kickstarter, 90% of your backers are people that you knew before the kickstarter, and my situation is no different than the norm. So far the people who have donated are:

    --fans
    --members of the Pen and Cape Society
    --friends
    --members of the serial community
    --family
    --someone who discovered Legion through Kickstarter. He donated $1.

    Thus, if you're ever planning to do a Kickstarter, don't expect piles of money from unknown donors. You probably won't get it.

    On another note, the Kickstater is currently at 96% funded.

    And as of now, it's fully funded... That's a relief.

    And since things are now fully funded, I've now told people they can use Paypal to donate through my personal website.

    Just for the record, it's now at 200%.

    Though I always thought it was possible, I'm still a bit shocked.

    hoping you do one of those, you can buy the stuff after it funds, set ups. I'm tapped until mid december, sigh.

    I'm giving serious consideration to making some of the cooler rewards available through Zazzle or something (unless someone can suggest a better service for online stores). Plus, of course, the books and ebooks will be made available as widely as possible.

    YAY! so, what rewards, other than the books, turned out to be most popular?

    Well, definitely the t-shirt with the Rocket's logo.

    Beyond that, the bookmark, but I think that more to do with it being in the same group as the first two Ebooks. I suspect that the poster would have been more popular if I'd had the cover for the second book available before the Kickstarter.

    I didn't, of course, because I didn't have the funds to commission it. It's currently in process, but I like where it's going.
