Look at the surprise I got in the mail today!
Back in November I sent Melissa and Meaghano a letter as per their suggestion because they said:
Back in—gulp—FEBRUARY we were in the middle of Kickstartering and raising money and had little to no idea of the realities of the post office, or, to be fair, the realities of how wonderful making a book and talking to you would be. But back in February as we were asking you for money we felt a little weird about it, when we thought about it too much. What we wanted was for people who wanted the book to have the book. We may have said “needed” as in, “we need this book,” because when making something from nothing, telling yourself, “this needs to exist,” is often the only reassurance that offers real consolation.
This evening I got home, peeled off all of my winter layers and slowly unwrapped my package, hoping it was a copy of Coming & Crying. All I did was mail them a letter and they sent this to me for free! There is even a handwritten note inside that put the biggest smile on my face. I am too excited to even read the book right now, just hold it and marvel that it is in my hands.
