Entering the Home Stretch

my Kickstarter Campaign as of February 6, 2014
We are entering the fourth and final week of the Kickstarter for my newest book project, Explorations in Freeform Peyote Beading.  This project is near and dear to my heart and there's not a lot of time left to make it succeed. 

Explorations will be a companion book to Freeform Peyote Beading, with new projects, new photographs, more and expanded beading diagrams covering more techniques, works by other artists and so much more. 

Without the support of the Kickstarter, I still hope to write and publish Explorations.  However, I fear its publication date may slip into 2015 as I will need to focus more of my time on activities that can help me cover expenses in 2014. I may also need to scale back on the scope of the project. 

And on a totally personal note - writing is lonely.  Knowing I have backers and people who want the project to succeed makes it less so.  Instead of writing for a nameless, faceless audience, I will be writing for you - my Kickstarter supporters - as representatives of my larger audience.

Interested in becoming a part of that community and helping to insure that Explorations in Freeform Peyote Beading: Designing Original Art Jewelry and Beyond is published in time for Christmas 2014?  
Spread the word by sharing the link to your Facebook wall.  And if you're feeling generous, consider becoming an official backer of the project as well.  You will have my personal thanks, a chance to pre-order copies of the book along with other special incentives and the knowledge that you helped a new beading book see the light of day.
