Project Update: $10K + Authors Receive Their First Payment!

Hi all,

Exciting news! On Saturday, we hit our first $10K (253% of the starting goal), thanks to all of you! That's a great milestone! We still have a long way to go for some great rewards, but we want to celebrate! So, we're excited to enact the first "author payment".

The Author Payment
Every time we hit a multiple of $10K raised (for the first time), all volume 1 authors (those pledged at the Author or Author + Songwriter level) will receive a $20 upfront payment! You will see this in the form of a drop in your tier base price - up to a total of $200 off the cost of a custom soundtrack! This is a special thing we worked out with BackerKit, and we're happy to announce that we have now (as of late Saturday night) dropped both the Author and Author + Songwriter tiers by $20 each.

It's important to note that your current pledges are unaffected. So, if you pledged $350, your pledge is still $350, but the tier/level is now $330. This means you have 3 options. You can:
  1. keep your pledge as it is, in which case, you will have $20 extra to spend after the campaign on additional rewards (or on shipping your physical copies);
  2. manually adjust your pledge down by $20; or
  3. use the $20 toward a greater add-on, and increase your pledge price by the difference if there is something you have your eye on.

For those who elect to go with option 2, note that the project funding price will drop as you make your change. This has been accounted for, and you are welcome to do this at any point during the campaign.

Thank you all, and don't forget to spread the word! I've heard from a few author/backers who have been plugging the project "like crazy" to their writer's groups. This is awesome, and all of the word-of-mouth is helping! The more we raise, the more we can give back, so tell your friends, family, fans, neighbors - everyone!- to come support you!

With gratitude and excitement,

Michael & The Team @ The Black Piper
Every time we reach a multiple of $10k (for the first time), authors tiers will receive a tier reduction of $20, up to $150 off of a custom composition.
Goal: $10,000 reached! — We did it! This project reached this goal!
