Launch Team Update #1 -- April 12, 2015
And thank you, once again and from the bottom of my heart, for your participation in the coming Time Traveler Tours & Tales Kickstarter Campaign. With your help, we can make this campaign historic. So let's get out there and...
Turn History On!
Now, for the latest campaign news:
Our launch author, Mary Hoffman, is officially signed, and her coming TTT&T title is announced!
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF GIANTS is an interactive quest to Renaissance Florence, and the unveiling of the real story behind the making of Michelangelo's David.
Read all about it in Publisher's Weekly, if you haven't already.
I was Time Traveling in Florence last week, as you know, to seek campaign endorsements from merchants, hotels, and restaurants on the ground there. The response was overwhelmingly positive. In addition to gathering support from Osteria del Porcellino and The Paperback Exchange, among others, we also have two new cheerleaders:
They will each write articles in support of our campaign, Italy Magazine in weeks 1 and 3; The Florentine in week 2. Together, they boast a subscriber population of more than 600,000.
That's a lot of pairs of eyes!
Finally, we now have FIVE live launch parties confirmed. And I'm hoping to confirm a last one in Florence. Let's hear it for our hosts:
Julie Gribble and KidLit TV, New York, NY, USA
Michelle Lovric and Mary Hoffman, London, UK
Nancy Janin, Paris, France
Lucille Turner, Nice, France
Julie Hedlund, Boulder, CO, USA
