Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Rougarou JENThank you to everyone who contributed to our recent IndieGoGo campaign for our fall event, Rougarou: Journey to the End of the Night!  With your generous support, we exceeded our goal by nearly 25%!’

That is absolutely amazing.  I’m not only thankful for the funds that we can now direct towards this event, but for the vote of confidence from our community.

So much of what we do feels like we’re firing into the dark.  We make books and hope people buy them, we make resources available to writers and hope they get used, but in most cases, there’s not a lot of feedback, and no real-time reward for our efforts.  But this time we asked if you’d like an event, and our community clearly shouted “yes, that’s an awesome idea!”

So, thank you.  I really appreciate it.

If you wanted to contribute but didn’t make it, or the funds weren’t there, that’s OK, there are still lots of ways that you can support this event.  Here are two big ones:

1) Volunteer – If you’d like to volunteer for this event (no skills required), please email us at info@columbusjen.org.  We’ll put you to work.

2) Spread the word – At this point, the biggest factor that will determine how much fun we have this fall is how many people turn out to participate.  If 50 people come, it will be fun.  If 300 people come, it will be super fun!  Please mark your calendar to be there yourself, and commit to telling others about this cool event and getting them to show up.

To stay in the loop, you can join the Facebook event here.  Click “Join” and you’ll get notifications whenever we post news and updates to that page.  You can also follow @cbusjourney on Twitter if that’s more your style.

Thank you again for your awesome support.  You guys are amazing, and I feel so encouraged to serve this community.  We’ll see you on September 20!
