    Your name and a short description of yourself as a Special Supporter on the Kickstarter Contributors page of the trade paperback of Getting Naked for Money. By short I mean 140 characters or fewer, including your name, if you want me to tweet your support, 10 words or fewer if you couldn't care less about Twitter.

    The description of yourself does not have to be serious or accurate. You can be "Cynthia, queen of terriers" or "John, best lover in Indiana." It should not be pornographic, however, or political (categories that sometimes overlap).

    Interested in Freud's Vienna and/or Jewish Vienna? My great uncle was Sigmund Freud's butcher, with his shop in the same building where Freud lived for 44 years. I'll create an itinerary for you of his favorite haunts and current places where you can learn more about Freud. If you prefer -- or in addition -- I'll direct you to the top Jewish sites. Both options draw on insider information gleaned from my family research for FreudsButcher.com and my visit to Vienna last June. I'll base my itinerary on the number of days you have to visit.
