To my friends, family, colleagues and supporters:
With just two weeks to go, we're past halfway in our fund-raising project for Girlfag: A Life Told In Sex and Musicals... but we're Image
going to need a big last-minute push to take us over our goal amount of $7500.
Fortunately, we now have a great new tool to help with this project - an absolutely gorgeous cover by my longtime collaborator John Brenner of Johnny Ink, which you can see here. Hope you like it!
However, new donations have slowed down in the last week, and if we don't get a kick of new people in the next couple of weeks we may miss our $7500 goal. Now, don't get me wrong - I am going to publish this book anyway, somehow. But in order to do it justice - to back it with the marketing, PR and merchandising it needs to reach its intended audience of people who don't feel comfortable with traditional categories of gender and orientation - we need to raise that money.
So, please: If there's any way you can help - by donating what you can spare, by telling friends who might be interested, by posting our link to your Facebook page, or anything else you can think of - now's the time to do it!
And, as if you needed any more incentive... if you refer a friend who donates at least $50, you'll qualify for a free Girlfag patch. Just ask your friend to drop me a note along with their donation so I know who's responsible.
So stop by now to the Kickstarter page. You'll find everything you need - a complete description, some excerpts, and a nice big picture of the cover - plus a wide range of awesome incentives to loosen the strings on your wallet. Plus, of course, the knowledge that you've helped bring important new information into the world of sexuality and relationships (and, of course, musical theater)!
Thanks to you all,
Janet W. Hardy
