      Was so excited to come home knowing that my four books were waiting in the mail! =D I sadly haven't been able to finish the LGW because work has been kicking my butt! But I am almost done and can't wait to start on these. =)

      But out of curiosity, will the LGW soundtrack and Encounter Wonder come in a separate package? Or will that be digital or something?

      Hi JA!

      You would pledge to the Royal Bodyguard category ($55) to get the print and hardcover of Zen of Wonder. Then you could add a reward tier that includes the first 3 vols., IE Glow Flow if you wanted hardcover. Simply pledge to one of these categories, but add the sum of both categories to your pledge amount at checkout. Then send us a personal message (the button to the right) letting us know which two reward categories you decided on.

      Thanks for checking out the Kickstarter. Keep following the glow!

      Hi! Seems I'm late to the tea party having only discovered Frank and his work two days ago. If I wanted the Bill Sienkeiwicz poster and all four Hatter M in Hardback, what/how is the best way to make that pledge? Thank you!

      Creator Frank Beddor on March 19, 2013

      Hey Dena,

      Since you've already pledged, you just need to message us with your Rings name and we'll make sure you get that rings cash. A few of your fellow citizens have already been put on our list!

      I just got a message from Rings or Orbis letting me know there is a bonus for backing the Hatter M project. But I was a little confused as to how I redeamed the bonus. Has anyone participated in this? Or if Mr. Beddor know how to recieve this I would love to know. I'm so excited about this project. I love the books!

      Creator Rebecca Horist on March 18, 2013

      So excited. Been such a fan since meeting the author at Chicago Wizard World tour dressed ironically as Alice, and he was selling his first book in advance.

      So if every backer right now added one dollar to their pledge we will be well over the first stretch goal we only need $320

      I backed all that I could for right now, Frank!
      Hope this works out! Looks like it will!

      Also, anyone still on the fence: Frank is a tremendous storyteller and writer. All his books are great. If you even only donate $1, please do so. It's for good literature!

      Met Frank a few times at ComicCon ( hope you liked Aunomati Frank!). Very excited to see this next effort. Art and story are first rate. I have recommended this series often to friends and family ( very popular with nieces 12-16 for some reason). Glad Frank is going Kickstarter!

      Creator Frank Beddor on February 12, 2013

      Hey Pierre,

      Good question. This campaign is for no additional revenue whatsoever. Just because we have finished up the creative aspects of the book and have the final files ready on our end does not mean we have the ability to actually print and bind hard copies for distribution. Our goal only covers the cost of printing Zen of Wonder. The book exists right now as a bunch of layered photoshop files on a computer-- you all will make it a tangible book by contributing.

      If the book is written, drawn, and ready for release and mass distribution by April, what exactly do you need funding for, besides additional revenue?
