    I'm racking my brain trying to think who else could help you promote this. Have you talked to ProfessirX? He's always plugged into tons of ppl.

    Can I pledge without using kickstarter? I am having problems with it and can't complete a pledge.

    Some news --

    Today I got a check for $500 from a CC person who doesn't use credit cards. I'll add it to the total, which will put us at $5,375, which is very close to half way!

    Seeing that today only marks the end of the first week, I'm feeling very hopeful that this is going to happen.

    What's been most surprising is that instead of a lot of people saying, yes, $30 for a book and an e-book download, there are a small number of people saying, here's a few hundred bucks and I don't really need anything in exchange.

    I thought it would be just the opposite! When I imagined doing this project, the main thing I was sure of was that in my extended network there would be at least 400 people with $30 worth of interest . . . so far, that hasn't been how it's played out at all. But I still think it would be best, because if I get to produce this, I don't want to make 50 copies. I want to make a thousand. Or twenty thousand.

    It's a story worth telling, and worth spreading around. The money isn't a donation . . . it's an advance payment in exchange for something in return, along with a little "kick" to get the thing started.

    Thanks to all of you who care about this and tell people who might want to know.

    Sixteen days to go

    and more than half the funding is there.

    What makes me happiest is that in the last few days, a dozen new $30 backers have stepped up to kick in a little and pre-order their copies.

    Thanks, everybody. We're going to make this happen.

    Here's the link. If you have an amazon account, it's 30 seconds and 4 clicks and done.

    Kate,

    do you have a plan B in case we just get close to the amount needed?
    I mean if let's say the last day you miss 1500$ would you consider having a sponsor and put his name on the book?
    Or maybe someone could be willing to cover the amount that is missing?

    One of the problems I see is that for many people might be difficult to imagine the positive effect that your book may have in feeding the cure effort to possibly create a criticl mass of people and actions to make a cure happen faster.
