Just a reminder: we have FIVE DAYS until the Kickstarter project to pre-fund the Tales of New Babbage project reaches its deadline. If we don’t make the goal we don’t get the money and (in all likelihood) we won’t see a New Babbage book this year.

If you haven’t done so yet, please pre-order your copy. You know you’ll want one when it comes out, so you might as well get in on it now.

And if you or your avatar wants to be immortalized on the dedication page of volume one, there’s a special category for you too.

(Here’s another cover idea, just for fun:)

    That’s looking very nice! I wish I could help out, but I’ve neither stories, nor money.

      Do you have friends with money? Co-workers you can safely pester? Forums you can post to? A blog where you can promote things? Are you willing to walk around Help Island wearing only an “Ask me about New Babbage” thong? Fundraising can get pretty wild, and you never know what crazy thing will work.

        Unfortunately, no, no, only forum I’m on is this one, I don’t blog and… a thong is a bit extreme, isn’t it? ::looks down at his fundoshi and realizes he swims in the vernian in it all the time:: Okay, maybe a thong is doable.

    3 days left.  We need $140.

    At the $50 level, that’s 3 people.

    At the $15 level, that’s 10 people.

    We can do this!

      ::grimaces:: 3 days until payday too. Hoping I can get in a pre-order in time at least.

    I stand behind Miss Hienrichs in her faith as I most heartily echo her rallying encouragement.

    $45 to go. That’s not a lot at all.

    Thanks to Miss Stereo Nacht, we have met the goal!

    But that doesn’t mean you can’t still contribute… *grin*

    WE DID IT! Nice work, Babbagers – we funded the Tales project. Now all we have to do is finish the book itself!

    I am positively beaming right now. Woohoo!

    Well done Mr. Cleanslate!

    I still owe you some stuff!  I’ll get that to you on Tuesday!
