Edits are done! Also, check your pledges!

1 comment

The final edits for Penpal have been completed! The next step is to format the interior for printing and for ebook, which has already begun. We're pretty close now, guys! 

A couple of things to note:

1) Make sure that you've selected the right package for your pledge. This is as simple as clicking "Manage Pledge" and making sure that the right one is selected. I want to make sure that everyone gets what they want!

2) Very soon after the Kickstarter is over I'll be sending out surveys where you will give me really important information that's relevant to your pledge. I'll need your mailing address, and may need (depending on your order) your shirt size and design choice, your name as you wish it to be printed in the book, and whether you want an extra copy of the book or an extra shirt. These surveys are really important, so I just wanted to remind you to expect them so I can get the packages out quickly. The quicker you reply, the quicker I can put everything together!

3) INTERNATIONAL/CANADIAN ORDERS: Please make sure that you've added the right shipping to your order so that I can actually send it out to you! Once the Kickstarter is over the pledges can't be changed, so take a second to make sure everything is correct.

Thanks so much for all your support! I can't wait to get the book out to each of you!

    Don't leave empty-handed! You receive a double-sided, glossy PENPAL bookmark. Obviously you're going to want to use this for the PENPAL novel, but I suppose it would also work for other books...probably.

    Remember collector cards? So do I! In addition to the bookmark, you'll get 1 of 6 random collector cards designed by the talented Carolyn Nowak. Each card features a different comic book cover illustration; there's 1 for each chapter of the book. That's not all though. Turn it over and you'll see a part of the map from the story "Maps." Collect all 6 to complete the whole map! Scroll down on my Kickstarter Story to see one of the cards here!

    Wear your support on your sleeve...literally! Everything above PLUS your choice of t-shirt. Choose one of two designs and the shirt's size. These will be screen-printed (NOT cheap iron-ons) in limited quantities in response to the Kickstarter demand. BUT WAIT! I'll also send you a high-quality vinyl sticker with the PENPAL logo. Slap this bad boy on your car, guitar, folder, or face and be an official PENPAL. Scroll down for pics! CANADA please add $10. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS please add $15.
