I just wanted to let everyone know that ASSEMBLED! has so far sold nearly 600 copies and raised over $1100.00 for the HERO Initiative.
The total would have been much higher but the retailers take a huge bite. (I fear that means the second book will have to have a slightly higher cover price.)
We're keeping nothing money-wise, aside from the most basic costs of publication. It's all going to the charity.
We will be presenting a big check to the HERO Initiative folks as part of a special panel at HeroesCon in Charlotte in June. Both the charity and the convention are on board and are excited about this.
I'm hoping we can sell a few more copies before then, and up the total to $1500! (The charity gets a much bigger cut if folks order via the Lulu.com site or buy the book from us at conventions. That eliminates the retailer cut.)
