RE: Kukuburi Campaign Update
KUKUBURI IS LIVE AND ITS BEEN AN AMAZING FIRST WEEK!
As mentioned last week KUKUBURI met its funding goal in under 2.5 hours, and the campaign has been growing at a steady pace. It's heartwarming to see old readers coming back to support, while at the same time new readers discovering it for the first time. As backer numbers and pledges grow it helps me realize the sustainability of making KUKUBURI my full-time job and putting out a book a year till the story concludes!
To date, the campaign has crested our $35K (Canadian) Sketch Goal of a Static Cling FREE to all physical backers of the book. The Cling features an image from the story with Nadia, Mr.Bojangles, and Leonard, careening through the Inbetween atop Nug! You dress up your window, laptop, fridge, or wherever your heart desires with this 4" x 5" cling.
To thank all the amazing backers I've instituted some Backer Stretch Goals - meaning once we hit a particular number of backers everyone under that backer number will get a FREE ITEM. So far, the first 500 backers will be getting a KUKUBURI 5" x 7" MINI-PRINT, and should we hit 600 backers they'll all get a complimentary KUKUBURI FOIL EMBOSSED BOOKMARK!
This is definitely a scenario, where the earlier you get in the more awesome swag you'll get!
Last but not least, I wanted to share the tier we just dropped today, the KUKUBURI: PREMIUM SKETCH EDITION Hardcover Reward Tier.
This tier includes a KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE BOOKPLATE that is SIGNED, STAMPED, & NUMBERED (to the campaign total, demarcating the first 150 books) by Ramón. Also included is the Limited Edition MR. BONES Numbered COLLECTOR COIN. Plus all Stretch Goals and Digital Assets!
But on top of all of this - the SUPERFAN includes an ORIGINAL PEN & INK PREMIUM COMMISSION on a sheet of 9” x 12” piece of Archival Bristol, suitable for framing. The piece can involve up to 2 Kukuburi characters of the backer’s request - the information of which will be gathered post-campaign.
But to make sure your book isn't missing any love, The SUPERFAN also includes an in-book REMARQUE with optional dedication.
PHEW --- I think that's it!
No wait, we'll also be dropping some Giclée prints into the ADD-ONS section of the campaign later in the week! So keep an eye on campaign updates and socials!
Thank you all again for the continued support - and have an amazing day!
