Contributor. Pledge $5 or more. You are contributing to my efforts to complete this project in a meaningful way. As my way of saying thanks, you will receive a DropBox download link to the final draft manuscript of The Ramparts of Tharrenton Deep, Book One (in PDF). This will be made available the day after the Kickstarter campaign closes.
E-Book Enthusiast. Pledge $12 or more. You are making a real difference; I can’t thank you enough for helping me to make this a reality. You will receive the rewards from the Contributor pledge level. More importantly, you will receive a DropBox download link to the completed eBook of The Ramparts of Tharrenton Deep, Book One in your choice of format: iBook, Kindle, PDF, or Nook.
Paperback Reader (Book One). Pledge $25 or more. You will receive the rewards from the Contributor and E-Book Enthusiast pledge levels. You will also receive the Trade Paperback format printed book of The Ramparts of Tharrenton Deep, Book One as soon as it becomes available. Additionally, your name will appear in the Acknowledgements of the E-book version of The Ramparts of Tharrenton Deep, Book One as being a wonderful human being. [Note that for U.S. backers, shipping IS included in this pledge level. It is NOT included for international backers; an additional fee of $15 is required to ship internationally.]
Collector’s Paperback (Book One). Pledge $35 or more. The rewards for this pledge level match that of the Paperback Reader (Book One) with one important distinction: It will include a personal inscription from me and an autograph. (This assumes that these novels are the beginning of a long and fruitful writing career, in which case an autograph might actually be cool to have.) The survey will ask you about your desires for the inscription. The same caveats that apply to Paperback Reader (Book One) apply to the rewards for this pledge level as well.
Assistant Creator. Pledge $50 or more. (Limit: 4 available) Choosing this pledge level will grant you the rewards from ALL pledge levels of lesser value, including Contributor, E-Book Enthusiast, and the possibility of any Stretch Goal rewards that cost less than $50. In addition, you are purchasing the right to name a character or a location within the story. Prior to publication, I will be changing two character’s names from what they are in the manuscript—a backer could select a new name just as easily as I. I will also change the name of two locations that are named in the manuscript.
