An Update on My 2015 Calendar….

My 2015 Literary Cats Calendar Kickstarter project will run until this Friday night, November 21st, 10:00PM EST. I've added two Stretch Goals to keep momentum going, and hopefully we can reach at least one of these new funding goals. :) I would highly suggest pre-ordering your calendars from Kickstarter if you want one, as pledging will GUARANTEE you get as many copies as you'd like, as well as the exclusive backer-only perks! Leftover calendars will be sold in my Etsy shop.
