Obsession and Sock Puppets

You want to know what obsession is? Start a Kickstarter campaign.

I spend more time hitting refresh to see if there are more backers than I really should. I think it’s starting to trigger carpal tunnel.

I mean, it’s been a week and I should be a little calmer now. I’m not. I’m totally not. I really, really want this to succeed.

One of the reasons is that Golden Fleece Press donating 10% of the proceeds of Wee Tales to support First Book-Northern Virginia. (I’m the chair of that First Book Advisory Board.) That would be a tremendous bonus to us.

Kickstarter doesn’t allow charities or even mentions of charities in their entries, so it’s sort of a secret or a special surprise for people. I think it’s something that needs to be shouted about.

The fact that the sock puppet video is insanely cute is beside the fact.

And that there’s a new magazine coming out at the same time as I hear one has closed means I’m doubly happy to be a supporter and an editor on the project. (Yes, I put my money where my mouth is.)

Check it out here:

HalloWEEn Tales Vol. 1

Donate, spread the word, laugh at the puppets and show them to your kids. Just get the word out. Please.
