Lena (Helena and Malena)'s latest update for Sparked

Sep 1, 2016

Dear supporters and followers,

We launched our funding campaign this morning, and it’s been an incredible day so far. Thank you so much for following us, and to those of us who have preordered our book, THANK YOU! 

We really didn’t know what to expect from this process, and we are overcome with gratitude for your support. I was up at the crack of dawn today getting ready to launch, and my adrenalin is still keeping me going. It has been a long time since we put any new material from Sparked up on the site, so we’ve just posted the second chapter. We will keep putting chapters up as the campaign continues, until we’ve shared enough of the book that you have a good taste of it. (And hopefully want more!) 

Really, all that this update is for is to say thank you. Both of the ’lenas (Malena and Helena) so appreciate your interest and investment in our book. People often talk about how a book is like a baby-you make it, raise it (well, grow it) and then release it into the world. Sometimes, when we were working on Sparked, I felt like we were both the parents of this crazy tale we’d concocted together. Now I feel like our child is in school, and this first day couldn’t have gone better. Thanks to all of your support, it stands a chance not only of getting into the world, but doing well there. 

OK-clearly I need to get out of the house more. (Get a new metaphor, at least!) 

But really, thank you. We are so touched by, and grateful for, every single preorder. And excited to keep forging ahead!


Lena (Malena and Helena)
