Yesterday afternoon, the Kickstarter campaign for the companion perpetual planner calendar to The Ancient Egyptian Daybook launched. Just 24 hours or so in, it’s already halfway to the goal with very little advertisement from me. I’m very pleased about this; it means that those who have received (or are about to receive – still shipping!) their Daybooks like it enough that they’d also like to have the sequel/companion piece.
This is a tiny project, in comparison to the massive work of several decades that was the original Daybook. I am hoping to have the Daybook Planner printed and in people’s hands by the end of May since it’s already in process, though the campaign says August just to give enough wiggle room between now and the next set of Egyptian New Year calibrations if I run into any unforeseen obstacles in design/layout.
Very excited, and happy, to be doing this project, and I continue to be happy with the responses I’m getting from those who have seen the Daybook so far. It’s difficult to know how to feel when you put out a work that represents decades of your life. It’s less difficult when you find out it really is useful to someone besides yourself.
You can check out the project on Kickstarter here:
And please, if you aren’t interested or won’t be supporting this Daybook Planner project personally, would you consider helping me spread the word? We have a massive stretch goal to consider making an ancient Egyptian calendar program/app so people can make their own calendars on their phones, computers, etc. I’d love to pursue that project, but it will not come cheap because it’s not the same calendrical system as our Gregorian one at all and has to be programmed from scratch. If that interests you or anyone you know, please share. Thank you so much for the support and the encouragement.
