Your attention, please, all kindly patrons of The Black Mill! Here we are and I just want to express the immense gratitude that I, Orion Zangara and Derek Chase feel for the outpouring of good wishes and monetary support we have received. This was my first Kickstarter, and I admit I was hesitant to ever do one, realizing that time, attention and money are limited items for everyone, and I did not wish to impose on my friends and readers (I don't think those are mutually exclusive categories!). But one never knows the extent of people's generosity unless one asks for a favor--hopefully, not too large a favor! So, in short, all my thanks!
