    First Amendment Supporter

    Many people, many people, believe me are talking about this reward tier. And these people know reward tiers. It's YUGE.

    Let your voice be heard! Parvus' Publisher, Colin Coyle, will travel to the White House and stand in front of the fence holding a sign with YOUR message* written on it.

    You'll then get a boomark of said photo, assuming the authorities haven't arrested Colin and impounded the camera. Which they probably won't. He hopes.

    And he'll do it on a day the President is scheduled to be in the White House. You'll get a digital picture immediately and a higher quality digital image delivered within a week of the photo op. What's more; we will mail copies of all photos to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with a copy of IF THIS GOES ON for the President's reading pleasure. Or for somebody to read to him.

    (*Colin reserves the right to reject your message for editorial reasons, as he won't display a message that would be illegal to show on federal property or can be interpreted as a threat, nor will Colin display a message which is against his personal ethics. Colin also reserves the right to substitute a different federal building or monument if denied necessary permits and/or prevented by the authorities from taking the photo in front of the White House.)
    You also get all of the Delegate Tier Rewards (That's the exclusive Presidential Edition hardback with Russian-language cover and all the other goodies.)

    Includes:
    • Kickstarter exclusive Cat Rambo short fiction collection
    • eBook of IF THIS GOES ON (ePub, Mobi, and PDF)
    • EXCLUSIVE PRESIDENTIAL EDITION - Hardcover of IF THIS GOES ON
