As I write this, there are about 30 hours left on the Kickstarter campaign for my next book, A Children's Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination.
We're currently 215% funded and climbing.
We've been in the news in a number of places:
First, we have The National Journal. Writer Marina Koren interviewed me for her piece in their White House section today. How to Explain Presidential Assassinations to Your Kids is a great, positive piece. They read the book, loved it, and they even asked for a copy when the book is out. Then, the DCist wrote a great story about it, too, running some of Scout's art. Author Creates Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination For Kids. Some of the comments are pretty funny.
WatchPlayRead added a question mark to the title, A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination?, and are very supportive.
Sadly, The DailyKos went straight to conspiracy theorist territory and assumed this book was some sort of manual to teach kids HOW to kill a president.
Then we've released a whole pile of art from the book by the talented Erin Kubinek. You can check it all out on the Kickstarter posts page here.
Then, we had a huge announcement this morning. Paul S. Kemp, New York Times Bestseller, Lawyer, and great guy all around, will be writing the introduction if we hit the proper funding level. You can check that update and his bio out here.
Things are heading in the right direction, but I still need your help. Over the next day, it's never been more important for you to either pre-order the book, or spread the word about it. Preferably both if you can.
The life of this project is dependent on what we can pull off in these next 30 hours. Thanks for helping. Truly and sincerely.
One more time, here's the link to the Kickstarter.
