Update #4

Group Orders under 9

Comment

If you would like to make a group order, meaning you'd like more than one book shipped to a location to save on postage costs for both of us, here is how you can do so.

Pledge for the amount of books you would like and send an email to thetomeofideas@gmail.com to confirm your total order. Then choose either the $30 or $45 book Reward. This can also be done with Commission Reward levels.

No. of books for
Domestic US         Softcover           Hardback

1                             $30ea                  $45               
2                             $28ea                  $43
3                             $27ea                  $40
4+                           $26ea                  $38

No. of books for
International           Softcover            Hardback

1                             $45                      $60
2                             $43                      $57

4+                           $30                      $45

For example: If you wanted two softcover copies shipped to a single domestic address, you would pay $28 for each for a total pledge of $56, saving a total of $4. Send your email stating you would like 2 softcover copies and select the $30 backer reward.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or requests.

Update #2

The World Tree in Color

Comment

Some of you may have noticed that the illustration for the Adventure Outline in the 12-page preview  was in black and white. Artist Bree Manahan was attending to some important business when the campaign launched and has now been able to finish her beautiful vision of the World Tree, which we've uploaded into the preview.

Please share this preview and the Kickstarter with your friends and family. Things are going well but we have a long way to go!
