Edit June 4th: The Kickstarter is LIVE!! Click here!!
First of all, we wanted to apologize about the radio silence of the last few days. While we were waiting for Kickstarter approval on the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy project, we took this opportunity to prepare for the launch and get a little bit of rest.
We heard back from Kickstarter and they asked us for a slight change, which we took care of, so we're now back in the submission queue (but with Monday being a holiday in the US, we don't expect news until at least Wednesday).
Since we are still waiting for the approval, we thought we'd share a new character with you, and ask you some feedback on the TGG KS end date (see below).
Meet Drusilla Lepic, the Iron Empire's Sky Captain of the Jet Girls, an epic character who leads a squadron of human jet soldiers blazing through the skies at high velocity.
If there's an impossible mission calling for infiltration or surgical strike, you can depend on Drusilla and her cohorts being the ones for the job!
Once we get final approval from Kickstarter, we'll set up a countdown and launch the
Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Kickstarter as soon as possible.
But what we're concerned about today is: what's the best day to end it on?
Remember that pledges are not collected until the end of the KS, and so the date that you actually pledge does not matter as far as your bank account is concerned, but the date the KS ends does, because that's when Amazon collects all pledges.
And many of you have written to tell us that they were hoping that the end of our Kickstarter would come after they get their paycheck.
But we don't know when that is, as pay dates may well vary between different countries... So we've created a quick survey: What would be the best ending date for our Kickstarter?
You'll have a choice between Sunday June 30th, Monday July 1st, Wednesday July 3rd, Friday July 5th, Doesn't matter, or Other (please specify).
And if you want to know what got us started on the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy, check out the Kurganova sisters...
Our Raging Heralds project has now been launched, and we are in the process of contacting all who applied to personally thank them and let them know what the next step is.
We've set up a new page especially for the Kickstarter Drop Ship Programme, and we've added France, Belgium, Poland and more since our last update!
Well, as you know, to make this work, we need YOU!
A smart reader suggested that we provide banners to help spread the word on the Kurganova Shock Troops Kickstarter. So, DONE!
You can grab the banner below and link it to this Kickstarter page (http://www.ragingheroes.com/pages/kickstarter-news) we've set up (until the Kickstarter is actually live).
You can put it on your blog, or as your signature in forum posts, or anywhere else you can think of...
Or the French version:
We've mentioned it before, but may we also strongly suggest that you ask us (Asharah Raging) as a friend on Facebook, (for communication purposes, "Friending" Asharah is more effective than "Liking" the Raging Heroes page). At this point in time, Facebook is probably the best way to get real time info on what's going on with our Kickstarter and other projects.
Asharah Raging is already up 1200+ Friends since we've started communicating on this!
You can also follow us on Twitter. We're not very effective Twitterers yet, (but working on it); and all our Facebook posts do get an automatic Twitter update.
PS/ Want to make sure you know when we get started? Just sign up for our newsletter.
Want to help out? Please leave a comment below - just remember to use your actual email address so we can contact you (don't worry, it won't be visible online).
To make this happen, PLEASE, PLEASE, SPREAD THE WORD!
And a big heartfelt THANK YOU to those who already are!!!
