    The Eros Part - (Incl. all rewards from the $40 level). For backers at this level, I will provide a bonus bundle of chapters (at least five), in digital format, edited, introduced, and laid out like the rest of the book, that more deeply explores my thoughts and writing related to love and sex. This is material I was too chicken to put in the book. Decidedly NSFW. Note: The Eros bundle may not be delivered by the November 2013 book deadline.

If you're interested in this reward, message me and we can work out details before you pledge. I can act as a project consultant, write one or more custom feature articles for you, write and record a song for you, act as a 19th century ornamental hermit living on your property for a month (seriously). I'll come speak at your event, co-host a salon with you, whatever you desire. Sorry, no sexual favors - Kickstarter frowns on that. The Poet for Sale purchaser will also get the special "Subscriber" newsletter. Buy me now, go on! (Bonus points if you get the allusion in this reward.)
