Update #4 - 833 Pre-orders and we won! But ... Sept. 7, 2020

Hello friends, family and readers,

I'm delighted to share this update. Icarus, the Moon and Sun managed to get 833 pre-orders in 30 days, winning "The Future Of" competition.

Here are a few updates:

- I'm currently not impressed by any of the interested publishers from the Publishizer platform

- Separately, seeing the momentum of this campaign confirms the potential success of the book

Next steps:

- The campaign results should further attract the interest of agents who can connect me to the big / traditional publishing houses this book deserves. I will use these numbers in my ongoing pitches

- I will keep you posted soon on what that means for this Publishizer platform and your investment

Luckily, on the path to publishing you can't go backwards. And this is a major step forward. When the characters arrived to me, I promised them the largest platform to share their voice with the world. And I will fulfil that promise, though the journey is archaic and winding. Stay tuned :)

Thank you for joining the journey!! It's only up from here!
