Psst, buddy, wanna buy a novel? It's got space aliens, mayhem, destruction, and one poor schlub just trying to make a buck.
Stretch Goal #3
Phew, we made it past Stretch Goal #2, so it's time to go for broke! If we can clear $1,000 in pre-orders, everyone who pledges at the LUG level ($35) or higher will get a Val-Hundred shot glass to celebrate!

Stretch Goal #2: $750
Since we cleared Stretch Goal #1 so quickly, we're going for #2! At $750 in pre-orders, we'll add a second bonus mystery reward to the Alien Goodie Bag for all backers who pledge $20 or more. We're not telling what the mystery item will be, but we guarantee it'll be awesome!

How'd you like it if you had a crazy green laser embedded in your forehead, and all of a sudden, a bunch of alien low-lifes were trying to kill you?
Lemme tell ya, it sucks.
But y'know what doesn't suck? Having your story make it into print. I'm lookin' forward to that part almost as much as I'm lookin' forward to my next bowl of Val-Hundred and a good janz roll. So c'mon, help us get ready for the print run of Green Light Delivery by Anne E. Johnson by pre-ordering the novel, and possibly gettin' yourself some fabulous bonuses in the process.
'Cuz I really don't wanna have to send these guys to your doorstep next. You dig?

Webrid is a carter, like his mother and grandfather before him. It’s not glamorous work, but it mostly pays the bills, and it gives him time to ogle the sexy women on the streets of Bexilla’s capital. Mostly, he buys and sells small goods and does the occasional transport run for a client.
Then he gets mugged by a robot.
Now, with a strange green laser implanted in his skull and a small fortune deposited in his bank account, Webrid has to make the most difficult delivery of his life. He doesn’t know who his client is, or what he’s carrying, but he knows that a whole lot of very dangerous people are extremely interested in what’s in his head. Literally. And they’ll do whatever it takes to get it.
With the help of some truly alien friends, a simple carter will journey across worlds to deliver his cargo. And hopefully keep his head in the process.

All rewards include domestic shipping in the US. If you live outside the US - and yes, this includes Canada and Mexico - please add $10 to your pledge for international shipping for most tiers (some higher tiers require more shipping due to breakable objects). If you do not add these funds, we will contact you after the completion of the project's run to make arrangements; otherwise, we will, unfortunately, be forced to cancel your pledge and refund your money - we're sorry to have to do this, but international shipping on books is expensive!
Books are costly to send overseas, and glassware is even more so. Unfortunately, we can't afford to include overseas shipping in the rewards tier amounts, so we have to ask for extra from our international backers.
We're using this as a way to take pre-orders for the print copy of the book, so we've started rewards at the cost of the print book - but with free shipping, instead of you having to pay for shipping, like you would if you ordered directly from our website or on Amazon. Don't worry, though - you'll be able to get a digital-only copy of the novel through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the iBookstore, or directly from www.candlemarkandgleam.com when the book officially launches on June 19!
Because it's a great way to get extra goodies into the hands of eager fans!
The print edition will happen no matter what. Kickstarter is simply a fantastic way for us to get pre-orders and to offer some bonuses to people who are willing to get in on the ground floor with this awesome novel. It's the cheapest way for you to get both a digital and a print copy of the novel, and it'll get you access to stories, custom inscriptions, and goodies that may not be available elsewhere for some time - or ever!
Think of it as pre-orders on steroids.
