    Real-world goodies begin appearing in your mailbox! For this level of support you receive two blank postcards (illustrations from the book) to use as you see fit. But probably well before that appears, in your email, you'll get the PDF of the finished book and gift code for three (3) copies of the app so you can give it away as gifts to dear friends and total strangers. We will begin some singing and the drumming may last for several moments, and at sunset.

    GOLD MEDAL #3 - A Clay Doll + A Creepy Belt + Other Goodies: But perhaps you are not interested in such floppy paperwork as books and prints, but prefer more robust items like a figurine of one of the characters (hand-sculpted and painted by the author) plus a hand-carved leather belt with the characters dancing upon its shiny length. (*Belt buckle not included. *All clay models are under eighteen years of age.) We'll also add into that shipment the thank-you postcard and we'll promptly email you the PDF and ten (10) gift codes to share with your friends. Should you so desire, small animals will be sacrificed in your honor (but quietly, quickly, and painlessly). All sacrifices sanitized for your protection.

    RHODIUM-TITANIUM MEDAL WITH LITHIUM BATTERY - A Sailing Adventure + An iPad + An Original Watercolor, A Signed Book + Other Goodies: Clearly only for the super-human of supporters, you will be invited to sail with us to a Costa Rican, Panamanian, or Nicaraguan island for three days, conveniences, necessities and adventures included (Pirates limited only to participating shores). You will also receive an iPAD 2 (WiFi + 3G, 32g, black or white) in a leather-bound case made by the author. With it you will receive the leather-bound book, signed, and in it will find one of the original watercolors from the book enclosed. These things will be collected into a varnished wooden box which will make a handsome addition next to the other awards and trophies you surely have collected through your remarkable life. Shortly after you receive postcards, the PDF, and as many gift codes as you can use, you might find angels camping on the roof of your house and faieries camping on your lawn, cavorting with birds and toads of all sorts, because your patronage will be legendary and the hot topic of gossip through all the kingdom.

    PLATINUM MEDAL - A Sailing Adventure + A Customized Edition of the Book + Other Goodies: Extra-curricular excellence deserves extra-curricular activities! First, come sailing with us. Visit a jungle island (in Central America) for three days and we'll provide all food, drink, bed, adventure, and sunscreen. Second, the donor of this level receives a signed edition of the book with a new chapter in which you name a character making this book a unique one-of-a-kind object. You may suggest what to do with that character in the story and I may most likely follow that suggestion (please note that fables harbor not mundane voyages nor unimaginative vessels). The leather-bound book is then printed, signed and shipped, along with the unique and signed print, preceded, as you may expect, only by the email flock of the PDF and the ten (10) gift codes to share with your friends, strangers, and unsuspecting colleagues. Campfire dancing and singing, of course, immediately ensues, now with small animals, birds, and the bugs we have previously solicited. Some rainbows not included.
