Week One Thank-Yous

Week One Thank-Yous

We are at the end of the first week of our IndieGoGo campaign. Even though we didn’t meet our first 12.5% funding goal, like we were hoping, allowing us to reveal the first six pages in full-colour, we are still happy with the respectable 6.7%. We would like to thank every one who’s contributed during our first week, and have mentioned Five Little Zombies And Fred on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, and those people who have mentioned it in their blogs.

We would like to make special mention of the following, either because a team member posted the following, or it made us do a little happy seal clap.

Thanks you all, once again, for both your contributions and your tweets, Facebook status, Google Plus updates, etc. We still need more of them, and often. We know that it can be tiring mentioning the same thing over and over again, but without the mentions, we will not reach our goal. If you happen to blog about about the campaign, please let us know so that we can include it in an update. Hopefully, soon, we will reach our first 12.5%, allowing us to reveal the first six full-colour pages!

<3 from,

Jules, Matt, Errol, Andrew, and Chris.
