    DEAR INTERNET: This is where you get access to all of our project updates. Which is like reading gchat over our shoulders for a few months. But better edited (and sometimes with pictures).

    REVIVE A DYING MEDIUM: Reserve your copy of Coming & Crying, a real life book, to take with you on the train or to the bar or under the covers, when your eyes are tired from reading your computer screen or your iPhone has run out of battery.

    OVERDRAFTERS ANONYMOUS: Buy the book AND send a book to someone who needs to spend their $15 on 500 packages of Ramen. Because we've all been there, too, and this book goes GREAT with soup.

    NOW WITH VISUAL AIDS: Pay a little extra (okay, double) to enjoy your copy of Coming & Crying with a limited edition collection of photos. Your favorite photographers have promised us pictures you can hold in your hands, frame on your wall, or send to your Internet girlfriend (no judgment).

    I WOULD NEVER ASK YOU TO DO ANYTHING I WOULDN'T DO: With this, you get the book with photos, and -- you're invited to a private evening of readings with Coming & Crying contributors, for our backers-only (and your guest of choice), staged in a very controlled environment, curated by Melissa and recorded by Nikola Tamindzic.

    YOU AUTOCOMPLETE US: You get everything we just said, but your Thank You will come with a barrage of exclamation points and smiley faces, in a gchat scheduled at your convenience. And if we really like you, then we'll put your name in the book. (We will).

    A PRIVATE READING IN A PUBLIC PLACE: Just like it says. Get the book, with photos, and we'll invite you to meet us in a cafe or bar in New York or Brooklyn to give you a private reading from one of our stories, for ten minutes or ten pages, whichever is less awkward. (If you aren't in New York or Brooklyn and want to pledge a private reading for a pal who is, get in touch and we'll find a way.)

    A PRIVATE READING IN A PUBLIC PLACE (for the internet): Just like the above package, except: you have our permission to kindly give your reading away to a person on the internet (who we will then meet in Brooklyn or New York, in a public place, etc. etc.).

    CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE: In addition to the book and photos, one of us will write a story just for you. Pick your writer, your topic, and, well, not much more because you're paying us to use our imaginations, right? Share it with the internet or don't -- it's all up to you.

    SO YOU DON'T WORK IN PUBLISHING(?): You not only get a book (and photos), but also a bonus copy inscribed by the both of us for the object(s) of your desire (but nothing stalkery or too weird), and a private reading in a public place, AND you also will help us pay our contributors more, make things fancier, and throw a better book party. The more money you help us raise, the more wonderful things can be for everyone. We thank you, the Internet thanks you, and people everywhere who have sex and have feelings want to give you a hug.
