Dear Kickstarter Backers,
We have some fantastic news to share with you! Thanks to your incredible support, we have just smashed our second stretch goal in our Monsters of Mount Moorhead campaign. This means that new character art prints are now unlocked, and we couldn't be more excited! Woot!
As we head into the final stretch of our campaign, we want to remind you that there are just three days left to go. We are currently working hard to unlock our third stretch goal at $7,000, which will allow us to produce an audiobook version of "Jane and the Monster." We received a tons of emails asking about the audio version of Jane, and we truly think we can get it produced if we hit the third stretch goal.
More good news: "Jane and the Monster, Book 2" will be sent out to you over the next few days. We can't wait for you to dive into this thrilling new installment in this amazing series.
Finally, we wanted to let you know that after this Kickstarter campaign, we will be launching another one in May for Mafia Romance Special Edition Hardcovers. We are hoping to create some kickass special edition hardcovers with exclusive bonus content and sprayed edges over the next few weeks so we can show it to you before the campaign launches!
Thank you once again for your incredible support. We couldn't have done it without you and that’s no lie.

We have a great news. This week we will be shipping special edition hardbacks and paperbacks of Jane and the Monster Book 1. Please reach out to us if you haven't filled the survery yet and you need to provide us with your mailing address.
For Monsters of Mount Moorhead Campaign things have slowed down a little but we want to thank you all of you once again for helping us funding this incredible project. We are so greatfull that we have so many wonderful backers that decided to support us. We have smashed through the first stretch goal and we are very close to fund the second stretch goal which are the new character art prints.
In addition, we have some exciting news for early bird backers! Anyone who backs our campaign by March 25th will receive 3 new ebooks as a early bird perks: Aurora and the Monster, Dorothy and the Monster and Half Blood Rising. This is our way of saying thank you for your early support and helping us reach our goals even faster.
From the start of this project, we always wanted have sprayed purples edges for the hardback copy. However, after long debate we decided that we could have purple sprayed edges done once we hit out $10,000 stretch goal. There there is a lot of work involved in producing such a limited edition hardback and we want to make sure the book will look absolutely amazing. We are aware that is still a long way, but we are hoping that we could reach this amazing goal. We strive to bring you the highest quality product possible.
Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for our project. We couldn't do this without you and we are grateful for each and every one of our backers.
Sincerely, Sophia Smut Team

We are so THRILLED to announce that we are only $41 away from our funding goal on our Monsters of Mount Moorheadcampaign (which will include parts 1 and 2 of Jane and the Monster, under our Sophia Smut pen name! A million thanks for all your support and pledges so far!
Every person who pledged will receive a digital copy of Dorothy and the Monster before it's published anywhere else. Below is a sneak peek of next cover. Our illustrator is credited and thanked on our main Kickstarter campaign page. We love her talent so much!
As we still have quite a bit go on our campaign, we wanted to update you on our stretch goals. Our first stretch goal is set at $5000, when we will be adding silver foil to our physical bookmarks. This will give them extra shine and make the design stand out even more.
If we can reach $6000, we will create four new character art prints that will be included in certain backer tiers. We can't wait to see what our talented artists come up with for these prints!
Finally, if we hit $7000, we will have purple sprayed edges on all of our physical books. This will give them a unique and beautiful finishing touch that we know you'll love.
We have other ideas on what to do if we hit a higher goal, but more on that later. One step at a time!
Below is the initial mock up we came up with:
We are so close to our goal and truth is, we couldn't have done it without your support. Thank you for being a part of our journey and for helping us make our project a reality. Let's keep pushing and see if we can reach those stretch goals!

We're now very close to unlocking our first stretch goal, and we're super pumped to reveal the details to you. If we smash $5000 in the funding goal, every special edition of the book will come with purple sprayed edges. This is the initial mock up we came up with:

We are happy to announce that new, fully edited version of Jane and the Monster is now available to download. We know there have been a few versions published at this point, but this one is very clean, with quite a few rewrites implemented folowing several beta reads. We listened to our readers and now we can't wait for all of you to read it!
Download the file here
Jane and the Monster ended in a clifhanger, so book 2 will complete Jane and Aldrick’s story. After this, the series will continue with Dorothy, who decides to climb the mountain in order to find Jane.
This is the main reason why we decided to run another Kickstarter campaign titled Monsters of Mount Moorhead. This special edition omnibus will include both stories with extended bonus material and an alternative ending, plus other special features. Every kickstarter backer will get this version before anyone else.
Soon we will be sharing excerpts and several chapters through this live campaign that is running for another 21 days!
