Shore up a few months of a budget shortfall, so I can focus on drafting a suburban fantasy novel instead of driving for Lyft.

    Top Donor Honors (And Link Promotion)

    Your name will be added in prominent font to a featured "Top Donors" section at the top of our "Thank You" blog post. You may also include a URL link.

    Also, if our Kickstarter funds all the way to its final stretch goal ($10k), or the serial blog post version is popular enough to create a e-book, this level will include a free copy.

    [We also have a cautiously optimistic, but very cool sounding "effort" pledge for a logo design. The logo would be the words Writing About Writing formed out of the names of everyone donating at the $100 level or higher. If this project is successful, the logo may be on some future swag.]

    In addition, be included in a blog post of heartfelt thanks. Have your name featured in a "Special Thanks To..." section on the actual dedication page of the book. Be put on the list for our "Inside Scoop" e-mail blast for the duration of the project.

    Your Name Here

    Choose one of the following:

    1- Have a character in the book named after you (or a characteristic other than name if you prefer). I promise they will have more than a single quick appearance and will, at the very least, die well.

    2- Have a short bio with as many links as you want posted as part of an "Extraordinary Donors" post on Writing About Writing (separate from our "Thank You" post, which will be mostly a list of names).

    3- A 30 minute chat session with the author, which can be text or face-to-face chat and can include more people–like a G-chat Room–if you wish. (But I will only be bringing myself)

    Includes all rewards from the $100 level.

    Beta Readers

    Become a Beta reader! If you wish (but no obligation), you may join the ranks of a small group of beta readers who will be given the MOSTLY final draft to read for their thoughts and feedback, and your input will be used to help with the final polish.

    Further, receive one of the following:

    A hand-written and signed letter of thanks. Who knows–it might be a collectors item some day. An author's very first Kickstarter...

    A tremendously click bait titled article on the blog that is all about you and how awesome you are (or a topic of your choice if you prefer). It may include as many non-spam links as you wish.

    In addition, if our Kickstarter goes all the way to its final stretch goal or the book is wildly popular and I make print-on-demand copies, this tier will include a signed copy.

    Includes all rewards from all lower levels.

    Book Dedication

    FULL PATRON

    Have the book dedicated to you. (That's the main dedication at the top of the dedication page with a max of three names and a short sentence about why you are breathtakingly awesome.) This page will be a part of any e-reader or print versions.

    Join the Alpha read team! This doesn't mean you have to read a rough draft! But it does mean that if you wish (no obligation), you may be in a group of a half a dozen people from whom I get the first round of feedback, and your suggestions will be integral in the revisions.

    I will write a short story/vignette about ANY character you choose and at your guidance. Maybe you want to be a character in some Harry Potter fanfic? Or perhaps you would like your favorite Vampire character to have a neat backstory? You give me the parameters and the main character, and I give you some personal fiction. I'll even publish it on the blog if you wish.

    Plus I will totally join you for dinner if you ever end up in the SF/Bay Area. (If that sounds like something you'd like.)

    In addition, receive both of the following:

    A hand-written and signed letter of thanks.

    A tremendously click bait titled article on the blog that is all about you

    Includes all rewards from all previous levels.
