On Monday 12th September, during the wee hours of the morning, we did it…
The Kickstarter campaign collected its final pledges that would complete the US $8,500 funding goal for the Majestic and Magical photo-book!

As far as my research has shown, this is the first Kickstarter project based in Dominica to be successful, so this is definitely an achievement worth celebrating!
I’d like to say a great big Thank You to the 57 official backers who contributed to the project. Your pledges will be richly rewarded. I’ve already resumed talks with my printing partner and we are on track to begin production soon.
To the dozens of individuals who liked, tweeted, pinned and shared the project on social media, I am also indebted to you for your enthusiasm and support.
During the campaign I worked with Sara of Carib Journal, Ryan of Rum Shop Ryan, Uncover Your Caribbean, DominicaNewsOnline and DominicaVibes to create awareness about the project. You all deserve many thanks for sharing my story with your readers.
The Printing Process
For the next two weeks Kickstarter will be collecting the pledges. When they’re done, they will deduct their fees and send the balance to me.
At that point, I will be able pay my printing partner a first deposit, who in turn will begin the process of preparing for printing.
For those rewards that only include digital downloads, I’ll be sending them out by the end of September. These include the phone backgrounds and the Majestic and Magical eBook. Look out for yours soon!
Books are still available!
If you didn’t get a chance to pre-order during the campaign, you can still secure your copy of Majestic and Magical.
Below you’ll see a product page that allows you to pay for a signed copy of the book. If you do it now, you’ll lock in your order at the low Kickstarter price of US $40.
Hurry though… at the time of this blog post, I only had 140 copies left out of the original 250! (The sale ends on September 30th.)
Majestic and Magical
Funded through Kickstarter.com, ‘Majestic and Magical’ is a large format, hardcover photography book, featuring more than 130 images of Dominica captured around the country — from Scotts Head to Laudat, Calibishie to Syndicate, Roseau to Trafalgar and beyond.
It is a great gift idea and an even better souvenir!
Majestic and Magical: Come Explore the Nature Isle is a photo-book with more than 130 images, captured over 3 years, all around Dominica. Laid out over 144 premium glossy pages, the book is a necessary keepsake if you regard Dominica as one of the most beautiful places on Earth!
Here’s a short video called 28 Images in 28 Seconds. This is just a snippet of what you’ll find in the book.
