Rewards Preview V: Bookplate

Presenting the image to the exclusive signed bookplate that will be included with all regular and ARC editions of The Fracture of the Universal Boy.

We're getting very close to the end of the beginning, thank you everybody for your support!



Prototype Lottery

Well, we're almost there, and super excited to officially begin production. We'll have our ISBN numbers this week, we're refining and upgrading the book design, and are very excited to put this on press soon.

As a little thank-you to one lucky contributor, we've decided to give away our prototype limited edition. When out campaign is all said and done, we'll be throwing everybody's name into a hat and picking one contributor at random to receive our prototype in addition to whatever reward has been selected.

There's very few of these out there, and there are variants in each: The four copies from San Diego were our first prototype, and sold out almost instantly. We did some upgrades to the prototype, which was presented as a gift to a certain prominent author and his wife late last year. Our giveaway prototype is the very last one, and the closest facsimile to how the final limited is going to look. And this one is for you.

Good luck to all!

Any of the reward levels are absolutely available for all destinations worldwide. And no, there is no extra charge for said international shipping.
