SK: were you part of this KS in an y way? the way youre referring to it it seems as though you are.
Only 10 minutes left and it had raised more than 10.000$ over the last 3 Days of the campaign. This is far beyond my hopes for the Project, and I am happy to see so many people interested in Mapmaking.
@vorropohaiah - the 4th stretch goal was for the creation of Maps and Legends: a Guide to Fantasy Cartography by Josephe Vandel (which is SK's name or pen name), so indeed he was a part of this Kickstarter project. Also, in case you didn't look up thread, I've recruited RobA, Anna Meyer, and Waldronate to write sections, chapters and/or appendices to several of the guides. And since the project funding exceeded the last stretch goal by nearly $7000, I plan to commission a few more CG member authors if I can - they will be paid of course. I also plan to place a nice donation to the CG, once I figure out all my costs and fund requirements (just a little while).
It's amazing, the funding beat my original goal by nearly $20,000.
Original Goal: $3750, All Stretch Goals: $16,500, Pledged: $23,289.10, Backers: 456, Funded: 621%.
Thank you, everyone who pledged or even just helped spread the word - you guys are awesome!

So yes, you will be able to purchase these when finally released.
Congratulations on such a successful campaign! And good luck getting them into the wider market; I hope I see the books on the shelves at my local B+N (assuming they're still in business in a few months)!

Congratulations & big props on the success of your project.
Just wanted to let you know if you have any need for extra hands on deck or any assistance needed let me know. I know I may not be the most experienced or skilled on cartographer here at the CG. But if there's anything within my skill set that you can use let me know.
Hoping the projects progress well and is released on schedule.
Well, I will eventually needed testers to use the tutorials in various graphics applications and discover if I missed anything and get it corrected before publication. I already have an army of editors and proof-readers volunteering, but I can always use more testers using Photoshop, GIMP, Illustrator, Inkscape, etc.
What a great campaign. Grats again on the success.
