I know I’ve already mentioned this, but there is still a long way to go for Civil Coping Mechanisms to raise the money they need for 2013. I just thought I’d bring it up again, provide the link again, and hope for the best. Consider supporting if you can.
This press publishes some pretty innovative writing. We all want that, but we know that such doesn’t have a huge commercial appeal to a lot of the public who prefer things like Honey Boo Boo and Toddlers & Tiaras. If we want to have innovative writing, we have to recognize that we’ll only get what we can support.
Personally, I’m about as far in as I can get. I’m $350 into this, which is somewhere around 10% of the total goal. I’ve done all I can, there is no more. If CCM is going to make the goal they need for the year, it’s up to you guys.
For various contribution amounts you can get their entire catalog for various periods of time right as they go to press, customized Hollywood props, autograph books, limited edition chapbooks and books (some EXTREMELY limited), J.A. Tyler reading you a bedtime story, a poker workshop with Alexander J. Allison, personalized poems, and other such perks. Believe me, if I had any money left available, I’d be picking up some more stuff.
Anyway, not trying to guilt anybody here. I just wanted to make one more appeal for the CCM R.A.W: A CCM Catalogue Year in Anticipation fundraiser. There’s still a good amount of time, around a week or so, but there’s no need to wait until the last minute.
