Hi, all. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it lately, so I just wanted to make a quick clarification about my involvement with the Sullivan’s Sluggers Kickstarter. I’ve been content to be silent on my end, but after the second KS campaign went up and things are coming to a head, I feel I need to clear up a couple things up.
First off, I want to make abundantly clear that I’m in no way involved with the direction of either of the Kickstarters, or any other other outlet where that book is sold. The Writer and myself had breifly talked about working together on the KS, but due to some disagreements, I decided to remove myself from it completely.
There’s been talk on my behalf about fair compensation from the KS earnings, but I have to say that it personally doesn’t bother me. I have been paid what I was contracted for, and I’ve been very content to keep my nose out of anything involving the book post-Kickstarter. In other words, there’s really no reason to be offended on my behalf. I’m doing fine. I understand that some backers may feel mislead in that they were supporting me financially by backing the book, and for that I apologize. There was very little I could do once the ball started rolling in that regard, shy of shitting on the whole parade.
Lastly, I’ve asked The Writer to remove my name from any future Sullivan’s Sluggers related product. It’s not a book that I feel good about endorsing, and I’d prefer not to be associated with it any longer.
I wish The Writer all the best in getting out all the remaining books to the backers in the quickest and most ethical way possible. I’m sure he has no intention of stiffing anybody on their orders, and I’m positive that you will receive your book at some point if you have not already.
