Leaving my cellphone at home.

Hello, Friends!
As you might imagine, launching a Kickstarter campaign that will determine whether your book gets printed or not can be all-consuming. Luckily, there is no reception at the place we go camping, and Donna has agreed to go for some long bike rides without our phones so I can clear my head and do some drawings without constantly checking the Kickstarter updates.
Don't get me wrong, it's fun and exciting, but if I continue on this way for 40 more days I'll be a nervous wreck.
With hope that the campaign will succeed and I'll be able to print the new book AND the first one:
I spent a good part of yesterday re-reading Now Where Was I? before making a few minor corrections and updating a few pages before uploading it to the printer for a proof. I was happy to see that it feels as fresh and relevant as when I wrote it two years ago. I even laughed out loud a few times at my own foibles. What a dork!
Donna, seen here getting a haircut in Tangletown (yes, that's really the name of the neighborhood) asked me what I was laughing at, and I had to admit I was entertained by my own writing.
Okay, we're off on another bike ride. I'm determined to finish reading Ed Catmull's book, Creativity, Inc. before it's due back to the library tonight, and do a sketch or two before I look at my Kickstarter progress again.
Because all the EARLY BIRD rewards were snatched up immediately, I've added a couple more options so people can pledge at basically the cost of the book, without the other bells and whistles. So if you were one of the many who visited the campaign too late, you might want to look again:
Okay, unplugging now! Thanks again for following along. I hope you'll share the Kickstarter campaign with your friends and family!
Steve
