    Be the first to get your copy! We hope to have all submissions written, checked, and edited with a little time to spare. So at this tier and above, you'll be the first to get your digital copy of the finished book as soon as is humanly possible, once the files have been created. Everyone else will need to wait until the official release of Elite: Dangerous before they get their copy. In the event that things slip back, we'll make sure that this tier gets their book one month before regular backers.

    Illustrator - contribute an illustration or some artwork for the book to go alongside one of the stories, and you can use Elite universe ship/station designs because this will be an official book. You'll also get an artwork credit and your digital copy of the book when its finished. It's likely you'll get some form of early reveals too, so you can make your artwork relevant to a story. Artwork submissions must be in electronic format (you can hand draw it and scan it), and of sufficient quality to print (in case that becomes possible), they need to be relevant to the universe and to the story, not be rude, not infringe others copyrights/trademarks or any other relevant laws. Artwork will be subject to an approval process - but we'll work together to get it right.
