Dear wonderful PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS backers!

So it's been one week since we launched the Kickstarter for THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS, the sequel to the PRINCESS WHO SAVED HERSELF, and we've rocketed past our initial $39,000 goal and are coming close to our first $60,000 stretch goal! Thank you so much to all of you for backing and helping spread the word -- you're the best and we literally owe it all to you!

As you know, if we hit the $60,000 stretch goal, every backer will get a bunch of great digital bonuses, including the original PWSH song, the PDF of the original PWSH book, and the PDF of the Spanish translation of the original PWSH book. And for the first time, we'll be giving out PDFs of the Korean language version of THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HERSELF! So please do share the princesswhosaved.com link with your friends to help us get to $60,000 if you'd like that Korean language PDF for yourself!

Also, we're thrilled to announce a special new reward today -- and we're telling you first, as our current backers, so you have first dibs!

If you visit the Kickstarter page, you can upgrade your reward to a limited edition PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS hardcover with a variant cover, with a numbered bookplate signed by writers Greg Pak and Jonathan Coulton and artist Takeshi Miyazawa! Tak will also draw a small original sketch on each bookplate! This reward also includes a certificate of authenticity, the Princess sticker sheet, and a PDF of the PWSHF. Only 100 of these special, variant cover books with numbered, signed bookplates will be made available, so please do get them while they're hot!
