27% Funded--I'll Sweeten the Pot!
Wow! Thank you to our backers! You have moved us to 27% of our goal! I know your faith in the project will spur others to give in these final 13 days of the campaign.
I'd also like to "sweeten the pot" a bit to encourage new pledges.
If we make our goal, I will publish free the alternate ending of Pilate's Key. It's so nuts I couldn't use it originally--but I will share it with fans and friends if we reach our goal! It's fun, I promise.
I had someone tell me they can only afford $3 and is embarrassed to give because the amount is "so small." What? Are you kidding?
No amount is too small. Every $1 contribution is from a backer--and every backer we have emboldens new backers. So please, if you can spare $1, $3, $5, or even $150--please know your pledge is respected, appreciated and welcome.
Come on folks, we can do this! Tell your friends. Every dollar counts--and I mean every dollar!
