We moved a mountain!

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): In Dulci Jubilo by The Cambridge Singers.

If you haven't heard the already ENORMOUS news - Tu Publishing made its goal! It is going to be funded and open for submissions come Jan 1. Honestly I can say I have never been happier to see a credit card charge on my account in my entire life.

A commenter on another blog raised some good questions on why it was necessary for us to donate money and if it were not some sort of scam or vanity type press for doing so. But by going through a system like they did through kickstarter, it was a way to not only gain important awareness but also give back to those who helped fund it. So those of you who donated - you've just become investors! How cool is that?

I really cannot believe it. We moved another mountain guys! I am just more and more amazed by this community and what they can do. Your generosity and fearlessness continues to amaze and astound. We did it! You are all officially cooler than sliced bread. And possibly cookies too.

*Tosses Confetti* We did it! We did it! Thank you so much for pointing this out to me--it was an awesome thing to be involved with! And wow, the blogging community has power (must be very careful about what I say in my posts, me thinks).

Anyway, the real reason I stopped by was to tell you that you won another award on my blog:


And I awarded it yesterday afternoon, before I even knew I won your contest, so it totally was not an attempt at bribery. You just deserve it and maybe it will send some new followers your way. :)

Heather - I am SO excited. And you're welcome, I'm just so glad it went through!

Shannon - Hahaha. Yeah, you better watch out. Santa and all that. :) And thanks for the award. And after hearing some of your horror stories, I don't think you are capable of bribery.
