Welcome to Matter Anti-Matter, a site about nerd stuff. By day, I'm Head of Community at Kickstarter.

From Diana Nock, creator of the web comic Intrepid Girlbot:
I got notice earlier this week that my proposal to the Xeric Foundation was rejected, which is sad-making for sure, but it’s got me thinking about how I’m going to fund the first Girlbot book. I really want to make it happen this year, but the problem is that a bare minimum run of 1,000 books will run me $7,000 American, according to my current calculations.
Now, this is really important to me, and the way I see it, I’m going to need to take a chance on pre-orders if I want to make this happen. So right now, I’m mentioning the idea so that you guys won’t be surprised in a month or so when I start yelling at you about my new Kickstarter project. I’m pretty nervous about the whole proposition, but I think it will be exciting to watch it happen. That is, assuming I don’t just fall on my face in the attempt, which is a definite possibility.
Nevertheless, I’m not discouraged, and I’m going to give it my best shot. You lovely readers have been so supportive of me in the past, and I hope that trend will continue. Check ya later.
