    The straight up route: You’re a no-nonsense kind of consumer. You read the first episode, you loved it (naturally), and now you want to give me two dollars in return for one copy of Rx, Episode 2: Industry. BUT NOT ONE PENNY MORE! You know there’s another episode coming, and you don’t care: You don’t know if you even liked Episode 2 yet. None of this multiple pre-order business for you. Why would you buy a sequel to a sequel you haven’t even seen yet? And all because some internet comedian pinky-swore he’d give it to you in the future? Screw that! Buying Episode 3 is Future You’s problem to deal with, and that chump never did anything for you.

    You read the first episode, you pre-ordered the second, and you’re even putting money down on the third because you’re absolutely positive that you’ll like this book. You know what that’s called? That’s called confidence. And you know who loves that in a potential mate? Friggin’ everybody! Dang, look at you: Pure swagger.

    Five bucks gets you the collected edition, when it comes out later this summer. And I’ll even knock a buck off the price, just to reward your complete faith in me. Because that’s exactly how much faith in Robert Brockway is worth: $1. The collected edition will almost certainly differ from the episodes – new cover, new layout, and so forth – but it will be no different, story-wise. I’m editing the work as I go, of course, but I will be updating all of the episodes with the changes as well. Same story, different format.

    If you’ve already bought the episodes and still want the collected edition, feel free to gift them to a friend! Or don’t! Depending on how much you like redundancy and/or dislike friends.

    A lot of novel-length eBooks these days seem to be stuck at the industry standard ten dollar price point. I’m not saying that’s too expensive – I myself happily pay that and more for most of the books I read-- but if you feel like paying that much for my little novel, I’d like to give you a little something extra in return. An order of $10 will get you the special annotated version of Rx: A Tale of Electronegativity. I’ve been basing a lot of the book off of the real emerging science, fascinating stories and bizarre images that I’ve stumbled across over the years as a professional roamer of the Internet Wasteland. I thought I’d show you all of it: The many, many news stories, studies, articles, places and photos that built the inspiration for this book, along with commentary from me throughout. If you like the idea of science fiction invading reality, the annotated version will keep you busy at least until the scientific community gets off their asses and finally invents Hoverboards.

    Pledge $25 or more About $25

    A signed, physical copy of the first episode. This will ONLY be available through the Kickstarter campaign, so once this thing is all through, there will be no more physical copies of individual episodes printed. I stress that last part because I do intend for there to be some kind of physical copy of the collected version available, and it sure as hell won’t be $25. This is more of a limited edition thing, and while I’m not arrogant enough to think my work warrants a collector’s edition, if your wallet wants to be that arrogant for me, I won’t stop it. As a bonus, I’ll also throw in all of the lesser packages here as well: An eBook copy of each episode, the collected version, and the annotated edition.

    Signed, limited edition physical copies of all three episodes, plus a signed, specially addressed limited edition physical copy of the collected novel, and FIVE copies of each eBook episode, the collected version and annotated editions. I have no idea why you’re trying to collect so many electronic copies of my books, but I have to warn you: You cannot burn eBooks for fuel when the apocalypse comes. If that’s why you want these, that is not a sound investment.

    You’ll get all of the above: Signed, limited edition copies of each episode, a specially addressed physical copy of the collected edition, five copies of each eBook Episode, the collected version and annotated editions to distribute how you wish (I recommend copying them to thumb drives and whipping them at strangers – sure they’ll be mad at first, but then hey! Free book!), plus you’ll get a special acknowledgement in the official physical copy of the collected edition that comes out at the end. You will be remembered forever in print as the sexy and generous (if a bit impulsive) bastard that you are. That’s right: I will immortalize you. You will be a Literary Highlander.

    Jeez, I don’t know. Don’t do this? If you insist on throwing down more cash, you’ll get any combination of the preceding packages that the amount warrants. Or if you want to do something else, shoot me a message and we’ll see what we can figure out. No kissing on the mouth. That’s for my wife.
