Some Help from Brandon Sanderson

I recently reached out to the popular fantasy author Brandon Sanderson. Sanderson is known for his books such as the Alcatraz series and the Mistborn series. He is also the author that was asked to finish Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.  

This last week Brandon posted comments on his Facebook page as well as on twitter about the project. Here is what his Facebook page said about it:

"When Lloyd Alexander (author of many novels including the Chronicles of Prydain) passed away, he left his papers to the BYU library, which has an exhibit that is a recreation of Alexander's home office. BYU student Jared Crossley is making a documentary on Lloyd Alexander, the short version of which will accompany the exhibit and the long version of which will be used by various literary organizations and libraries. To finance the documentary, he is running a Kickstarter campaign. If you're a Lloyd Alexander fan, check it out."

In the three days since he posted this we have had 25 people donate to the Kickstarter fundraiser raising an additional $1000. We have received tremendous support from people all over.

However we are still in need of an additional $11,341 by the end of June for the project to be funded. If you haven't gotten a chance to donate yet, you can do so here. 

Thank you Brandon for spreading the word, and thanks to all who have donated to the project. Keep up your support.
