Looking back, 2014 was an eye-opening experience for me, a blessing often in disguise. It has taught me that the road ahead is very, very long. Although I've come farther than I expected in a few short years, this is only the first rest-stop on my journey. There is still so much to do.
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.
This year, after much deliberation, I will be producing 2015 calendars of my literary cat portraits! I am running a Kickstarter campaign through November 21st to raise the funds needed to print them in bulk, and expect to receive the calendars in early December to ship to customers. :)
I knew that selling prints would increase my sales and exposure, and I sought guidance from other artists who were successfully reproducing their artwork. I learned that collectors were looking for quality reproductions, and I chose to invent money in a professional grade Epson printer that uses archival pigment inks.
