No fewer than five people have come to me today to say “oops! I meant to do that! Please please can I join the Circlet 100?”

Okay, okay! Since we’re not actually up to 100 participants yet, here’s a button for any stragglers who want to jump in to use. I will cut off participation after a few more days, or if we hit 100 people, all right?

Sincere thanks to all who have participated or pledged. You make my heart warm!

Choose $50 or $100:

The “Circlet 100″ fundraiser has wrapped up, and here are the final stats. (Edit: Actually there have been enough stragglers coming to me today since I posted this, that I’ve put up a new Paypal button just to catch any last ones, here: http://www.circlet.com/?p=1186.)

In the end we fell a little short of the goal, but not by enough to stop the presses. Including what came through Paypal, plus one check, stragglers, and one pledge for a future payment, we hit 93% of the goal! Not too shabby, and enough to ensure that BEST EROTIC FANTASY will be printed. Huzzah!

I feel confident we would have hit or exceeded the goal if I had been in the office every day working various social media and publicity angles. Instead I was on the road for 8 days straight right in the midst of it, during which time there’s a notable gap in purchases. Note to self: don’t launch one of these in a window where you can’t keep it up every day.

The campaign received publicity in a Publishers Weekly piece by Judith Rosen, on Teleread.org, and a couple of other passing mentions.

Some more stats for those curious about this sort of thing:

Okay, my last post about this! Because there is only until midnight Eastern USA today tonight to join the Circlet 100.

Basically, a small independent erotic science fiction book publisher is trying to raise the cash to do a traditional print book (Best Erotic Fantasy, featuring Kal Cobalt, Helen E. H. Madden, Diane Kepler, Jean Roberta, Connie Wilkins, Jason Rubis, and many more!)

Once upon a time, Circlet Press published a lot of print books, but with the bookstores in as much trouble as they are, it’s now down to only 1 book a year at most, and that’s if the cash is there to manufacture.

Ebook sales are rising, but not fast enough to fund a print book… unless we can get people to buy into the Circlet 100. We just need 100 people to take us up on the offer of $50 for a limited edition CDROM that includes 20 erotic sf/f ebooks — a $128 value. Or, if you want more, for $100 you can get a bigger CDROM (27 books, $182 value) and also a T-shirt.

To get either one, click the ChipIn widget on this page: http://www.circlet.com/?p=1166 and put in either $50 or $100. (You can also donate a random amount of your choice that way.) You can use a credit card via Paypal, or your paypal account.

The offer expires tonight at midnight!

CDRoms and T-shirts will be manufactured over the next 2 weeks, so expect them to start shipping from us around June 15th. We’ll email you to check on your size if you forget to include it in the “instructions for merchant” on Paypal.

Help keep the dream of beautiful books and creamy paper alive through ebooks. Doesn’t that make perfect sense?

UPDATE:
Hm, I’ve tried refreshing the cache but I’m still only showing the current ChipIn at $20. Just checked our Paypal account and it’s definitely not accurate!

Thanks to the following whose payments don’t seem to have registered!
Marshall F. $100
Matthew P. $100
Ashley M. $100
Jennifer G. $50
Gavin Atlas $50
Joe N. $50

Our total, including a check I received, is now $4020, or 80.4%! w00t!

We had a small snafu with ending dates on our ChipIn campaign, so there were people who tried to make their purchase today and found the widget showing “closed.” Whoops! I’ve opened a new widget and have extended the campaign to next Saturday to make sure everyone who wants the limited edition CD-ROM can get it! We only need $1,650 more to make our goal!

If you’ve been meaning to contribute or to tell a friend about the campaign, this is your last chance!
