Successful Kickstarter, Show Schedule and Pre-Orders

Thank you!

Successful Kickstarter

First we just want to say THANK YOU to all of the amazing backers of our successful Kickstarter campaign! We are so very grateful for all of the support, sharing, and general awesome response that we received. What a wild ride it was! There were so many lessons that we learned through the process: how effective videos can be, how we need to continue reaching out to people and networking, how important it is to keep getting the journal in reviewers’ hands and how effective con email blasts are at marketing the journal. But most of all we learned that people love the journal and that has made us more excited than ever to continue building this business and adding new accessories and versions to grow it further. Keep watching the site as we add those accessories and more on our Get It page.

Better than potato salad – a Kickstarter story during the great food debate

As a creator on Kickstarter during the now infamous Potato Salad Kickstarter, at first I was completely annoyed (as I’m sure many were) by the sheer news coverage and just the amount of money being thrown at a guy who was making potato salad. People were supporting a guy who was not even offering a valid reward! Infuriating!

But wait a minute, my public relations mind said. There are many people who, prior to this potato salad, had no idea what Kickstarter was. I know this because when I have explained to acquaintances and friends outside of my comic-con world that I launched a Kickstarter, they had no idea what I was referring to. Then I realized the magic. Potato salad has put Kickstarter in the forefront of the media, even more so now than before. And with that, came the idea for a quick video response and the headline: Better than potato salad – a comic-con journal Kickstarter.

Gen Con Reward Level on Kickstarter!

We love Gen Con and had the most awesome show last year as first time exhibitors! This year we are excited to bring our Con*Quest Adventure Journals to the show for the very first time. So we created a Gen Con reward level on our Kickstarter! Pledge $30 or more and you get a journal and bag, for easy pick up at the show in our One Less Nemesis booth 1954! Due to popular demand, we added 100 more journals to this reward! Check it out and pledge if you can, we’d love for you to have a journal to capture every single moment of Gen Con, August 14-17 at the Indiana Convention Center!
