Update #2

New Reward: An ebook!!

Comment

Thank you to everyone for making week one such an amazing success! I truly did not think we would make it this far this fast!

In response to numerous requests, I have figured out how to bring this picture book to e-book form! Woo-hoo!

But here's the best part: I have decided to give you the e-book for FREE! That's right, all backers will get a copy of the ebook in whatever format you desire (PDF, ePub, mobi, etc.) just for being so awesome and supporting our dream!

This also allows me to open up a lower bracket for backers who only want the ebook or don't have much scratch right now (I get it.). So, there is a new reward level of $5 for the ebook only. 

Hopefully that will entice more people to join our cause! Even more than the amount of money we've raised, I'm deeply moved by the number of backers we have — at last count 84. Wow. So many people who care enough about this book and my family to act. Thank you! 

If you know people who were interested in the book but didn't feel they could afford $10, please let them know about this new ebook opportunity.

Though we've raised $3,000, we are still $2,000 from our goal and that's a lot of $5 and $10 pledges away! I'm guessing that most you supported this project because you were genuinely interested in the book, so be nice to your friends and give them the same opportunity! This may very well be the only press run of Dark & Light EVER so this is their only chance to get a copy!

Again: thank you!

Or if you don't want to talk to me, I can read the book to your voice mail in a wacky voice (options include opera, hillbilly and a New Zealand accent). Plus all of the $50 rewards!

    Wow. OK, you can have the ORIGINAL storyboard that I created when I first thought of this book. It's not fancy, but imagine how much Margaret Wise Brown's notes for Goodnight Moon would be worth today? Plus all the above swag.

    Not impressed with the storyboard? OK, name your reward. Want me to write, design and print a simple board book about your family? Done. Want me to show you start to finish how I created my masterpiece? Sure. Want me to teach my kids that your name is actually the word for a common household item? Why not. Want me to be your slave for a day? Well... umm... probably not. But let's talk!
