Real-world goodies begin appearing in your mailbox! For this level of support you receive two blank postcards (illustrations from the book) to use as you see fit. But probably well before that appears, in your email, you'll get the PDF of the finished book and gift code for three (3) copies of the app so you can give it away as gifts to dear friends and total strangers. We will begin some singing and the drumming may last for several moments, and at sunset.
Pledge $35 or more
WOOD MEDAL AWARD! More goodies in your mailbox! For this level of support you receive four blank postcards (all from the book), and a little surprise that will delight and horrify. But probably well before that appears, in your email, you'll get the PDF of the finished book and gift code for four (4) copies of the app when it's out. A pituitary dwarf and his mule will join in the singing and the drumming.
Pledge $45 or more
COPPER MEDAL - Poster + Other Goodies: This solid pledge awards you a poster (a print of your choice of the illustrations from the book), sent to any terrestrial address in our high-class pre-industrial water-proof card-board tubes. With it comes the two postcards, also illustrations from the book, and in your email you shall find the PDF, and five (5) giftcodes of the app when it's released. Drumming is now accompanied with lively chanting, and it is done with other celebrants - mostly woodland creatures. Thank you!
Pledge $75 or more
BRONZE MEDAL - A Signed Print + Other Goodies: This advanced level of admirable performance allows you to choose a signed print from the book, sent in a super-luxury cardboard tube via registered mail to your favorite address anywhere on planet earth. We'll also add into that box a few thank-you postcards just after we email you the PDF and ten (10) gift codes to reflect your generosity. Offerings and chants will be made to the gods in your name (of course with drumming), and we'll probably burn something that's nearby.
Pledge $150 or more
MERCURY MEDAL - A Signed Book + Other Goodies: This admirable level of advanced performance brings you a signed copy of the book, all seven fables in bound edition. We'll also add into that box the little thank-you postcards, and we'll email you the PDF and ten (10) gift codes to share with your friends. Here we give up singing and beating of drums, for praises of your support shall be passed to the birds to sing themselves.

SILVER MEDAL - A Signed Book + A Poster + Other Goodies: Such esteemed achievers earn themselves not only a signed edition of the leather-bound book but also a poster of their choosing from this book. Your patronage cultivates other fruit, such as the PDF and ten (10) gift codes of the app, but more than this it cultivates the advanced pace of drumming, singing, and chanting, by both birds and humans (and the dwarf), as we set larger things on fire.
Pledge $500 or more
GOLD MEDAL #1 - A Signed Book + Sponsor Credit + a custom iPad case + Other Goodies. A backer of such strong abilities needs their name engraved in the hallowed halls! You receive a signed book, your name in the app as a supporting sponsor, and a custom-leather case for your iPad (let us know if we are to add your name to it!). You also receive several post-cards, the ten (10) gift codes, and the PDF you can share to show others of the work you helped produce. The insects and birds of the field pick up their tiny drums to accompany the singing and praises.

GOLD MEDAL #3 - A Clay Doll + A Creepy Belt + Other Goodies: But perhaps you are not interested in such floppy paperwork as books and prints, but prefer more robust items like a figurine of one of the characters (hand-sculpted and painted by the author) plus a hand-carved leather belt with the characters dancing upon its shiny length. (*Belt buckle not included. *All clay models are under eighteen years of age.) We'll also add into that shipment the thank-you postcard and we'll promptly email you the PDF and ten (10) gift codes to share with your friends. Should you so desire, small animals will be sacrificed in your honor (but quietly, quickly, and painlessly). All sacrifices sanitized for your protection.

PLATINUM MEDAL - A Sailing Adventure + A Customized Edition of the Book + Other Goodies: Extra-curricular excellence deserves extra-curricular activities! First, come sailing with us. Visit a jungle island (in Central America) for three days and we'll provide all food, drink, bed, adventure, and sunscreen. Second, the donor of this level receives a signed edition of the book with a new chapter in which you name a character making this book a unique one-of-a-kind object. You may suggest what to do with that character in the story and I may most likely follow that suggestion (please note that fables harbor not mundane voyages nor unimaginative vessels). The leather-bound book is then printed, signed and shipped, along with the unique and signed print, preceded, as you may expect, only by the email flock of the PDF and the ten (10) gift codes to share with your friends, strangers, and unsuspecting colleagues. Campfire dancing and singing, of course, immediately ensues, now with small animals, birds, and the bugs we have previously solicited. Some rainbows not included.

RHODIUM-TITANIUM MEDAL WITH LITHIUM BATTERY - A Sailing Adventure + An iPad + An Original Watercolor, A Signed Book + Other Goodies: Clearly only for the super-human of supporters, you will be invited to sail with us to a Costa Rican, Panamanian, or Nicaraguan island for three days, conveniences, necessities and adventures included (Pirates limited only to participating shores). You will also receive an iPAD 2 (WiFi + 3G, 32g, black or white) in a leather-bound case made by the author. With it you will receive the leather-bound book, signed, and in it will find one of the original watercolors from the book enclosed. These things will be collected into a varnished wooden box which will make a handsome addition next to the other awards and trophies you surely have collected through your remarkable life. Shortly after you receive postcards, the PDF, and as many gift codes as you can use, you might find angels camping on the roof of your house and faieries camping on your lawn, cavorting with birds and toads of all sorts, because your patronage will be legendary and the hot topic of gossip through all the kingdom.
