9 days left; $835! : )
Hey gang! I'm so grateful you've donated. It's flatters me to know that people believe in this project.
I'm feverishly finishing the manuscript and am in talks with a couple publishing sources. I have some decisions to make about how I'm exactly going to publish the paperback and ebooks, but suffice to say readers will have 2-3 ways to enjoy the stories, essays, reporting, and travel writing within this book.
I'll be in touch again as the deadline nears to fill you in on the outcome. We're up to $835! Please tell others about the project and let's see if you can get $1,500 by the time this is complete.

Donate a Hamilton and a Lincoln (or fifteen Washingtons) and you'll get a free copy of the ebook!Estimated delivery: Mar 2012
Pledge $50 or more
For an even fifty you get the ebook, and you'll get the chance to connect with me. I'll shoot you an email, and you can ask me anything you may want to know about my year in China: my experiences, how I did it; perhaps my opinion about their government, their ways of life, or any other matter you're curious about. Heck, maybe it'll be a fruitful way to discuss some things you've done; I love hearing about others' adventures/ideas!Estimated delivery: Mar 2012
Pledge $100 or more
For a C-note, you'll get the ebook, the email convo, and a copy of the paperback. I didn't talk about this too much in the video, but it's going to be very similar to the ebook, but with a color insert of photos rather than pictures throughout. But hey, compared to a kindle or other black and white reader, this book will have some great pics to check out and all the comforts-n-warmth of flipping the pages yourself. : )Estimated delivery: Mar 2012
Pledge $200 or more
For this granddaddy, you get all the above, plus.....a video/phone conversation. Like the email conversation offered above (also included in this reward), this time it's a more intimate chance to sit down and pick my brain (and I'll pick yours if you don't mind) about the content of the book, my travel, thoughts about the world. You name it. I'll start by shooting you an email and we'll go from there.Estimated delivery: Mar 2012
