We have reached the Kickstarter goal! My deepest thanks to all of you who are participating in this project!
In fact, not only has the goal been reached, but slightly surpassed–which is excellent, because I would also love to produce a full audiobook version (including excerpts of actual Mojave Phone Booth calls from the collection of recordings I made during my visits).
It’s noon as I type this, so the Kickstarter lasts for exactly three more days (until noon on Saturday the 20th). I’ll post another update then. Again, my thanks to all for your support and encouragement and making this happen!
Here’s Joe Cool, totally not concerned that the Adventures with the Mojave Phone Booth book Kickstarter is at 74%, with a mere 9 days left…but Wagner appears significantly ruffled!
(It would be a huge help if anyone were to post the Kickstarter url, which I’ll post in a comment on this post, in places that might be interested in the Mojave Phone Booth–any international forums, discussion groups, online Burning Man hangouts, et al. Muchisimas gracias!)
…is up, and it’s good, and you can hear it here:
And if you’re inclined to take part in the project to publish the book that tells the whole story (including many parts that have as yet been unrevealed), the Kickstarter for my book, Adventures with the Mojave Phone Booth, is here:
Many thanks to all who have contributed and to all who will contribute!
The Snap Judgment episode about the Mojave Phone Booth got pushed back to next weekend–which is great news for me, because it gives me more time to get the Kickstarter all lined up to launch, so that will be next Friday, also.
It’s Friday, and I’m trying to get the Kickstarter started–it’s been delayed by Amazon Payments, thanks to the Bank Secrecy Act (or whatever government nonsense has a problem with P.O boxes, even if the U.S. Post Office where one receives one’s mail refuses to deliver mail because the postal workers don’t want to climb hills, and so there aren’t home mail delivery addresses, but only P.O. boxes)–but it’ll be live just as soon as it’s within my power to make it so. Thanks for your patience!
It’s your old pal Doc from DeuceOfClubs.com here, bringing you the news that YES! The book about the Mojave Phone Booth is finally nearing completion!
This Friday, August 15th, I’m starting a Kickstarter campaign to publish the book. I’ll post the Kickstarter link on Friday, in tandem with a link to a story about the Mojave Phone Booth that will appear on the PRX/NPR radio program Snap Judgment. The show will be available on the Snap Judgment website on Friday, and will air on radio stations at various times through the weekend.
In answer to questions already asked: yes, there will be Mojave Phone Booth t-shirts, there will be Mojave Phone Booth stickers, there will be probably other sundry gew-gaws also (including bookmarks, Ms. Darwin!).
This is going to be FUN…!
(I should mention that I did the book cover as pictured above just as a mock-up–unless people seem to like it, in which case it could be the real cover. What do you think?)
