Hello backers!  

Amy, Karen's Business Manager, here with an update for you on the book development.  

We have been chugging along through what is a fairly lengthy process to get the essays in final form. Writers have been submitting their drafts, they are reviewed by our sensitivity reader, our editor, go to our proofreader and then back to the writers for final approval.  Phew!  

It's been a lot of fun and exciting to see the final pages really come together, and we're so in awe of the amazing contributors to this project and their many talents.  

At this time we're still planning to meet our goal of getting the book to the printers by end of year, but we will update as we get closer if we anticipate any delays.

In the meantime, please enjoy a sneak peak at the essay below which will appear in the book.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to be in touch and we will be sure to post an update again soon.

Thank you!

This is Amy, Karen's Business Manager, here with an update - Karen is still recovering from her hip replacement surgery so I am stepping in!  First, on behalf of Karen and the entire creative team behind this book, I just wanted to thank you so much for your incredible support.  We're so excited to bring this inspirational book to life.


We will be opening up a BackerKit platform in the coming weeks which will enable you to edit your pledge and add on more items than you may have originally pledged for, including some new items that were not available on Kickstarter. You will get an email from Backerkit when it is launched with instructions on how to edit your pledge and confirm your items.  Additionally, since our shipping window is so far out, you will have time to edit your shipping address up until about 4-6 weeks prior to shipping.


If you have any other questions at this time, please send me a message through Kickstarter and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.


Thank you again!

Four more days!

Thank you so much for making this Kickstarter such a success! 

We have reached 200K and now we will have 120 portraits and essays in this book!

I have also added another sticker pack and pin pack to the add-ons.  

I have been trying to find a balance between offering  pin/sticker options but also not making it too complicated.  We will be doing a backerkit to hopefully add options for international backers. 


If you need help customizing your order for add-ons, here are the instructions: 

"While a project is live you can adjust your pledge by visiting the project page and clicking the “Manage your pledge" button. On the following page, select "Change your pledge".

From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or switch to a different reward tier (changing reward tier will automatically update your pledge amount). Additionally, you’ll have the option to add any add-on rewards, or give a little extra with bonus support.

If you’d prefer not to receive a reward, simply change to the "Make a pledge without a reward" tier and enter your new pledge amount.

Remember, when changing your pledge amount you are not adding to your existing pledge, the new amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded."


Please send us a message if you have any questions! 

Thank you! <3

I added a sticker pack as an add-on yesterday, and I should have included instructions on how to actually add something on to your pledge. I'm sorry! 

Here are instructions:

"While a project is live you can adjust your pledge by visiting the project page and clicking the “Manage your pledge" button. On the following page, select "Change your pledge".

From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or switch to a different reward tier (changing reward tier will automatically update your pledge amount). Additionally, you’ll have the option to add any add-on rewards, or give a little extra with bonus support.

If you’d prefer not to receive a reward, simply change to the "Make a pledge without a reward" tier and enter your new pledge amount.

Remember, when changing your pledge amount you are not adding to your existing pledge, the new amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded."

We have five days left, would you be interested in more sticker pack add-ons, or a new pin pack add-on? :)
