      Hey Thomas, glad you've downloaded it!

      For the moment all content is free, but starting August 19th and continuing into October, chapter content will be $.99/week. Your pledge reward gets you all of the additional content for free--we'll send an email prior to the 19th with redemption information. We're waiting to see if Apple will accept our elegant automatic redemption code system, or if we'll have to do it manually, but either way we'll get all our backers that information prior to any paid content appearing in the app.

      Victory in the final hour. Apparently we just needed Evaristo to comment a week ago and we'd have gotten well over $100,000 by now.

      We're a quiet bunch, Evaristo. Busy at home, tearing our books into pieces so we can read them one chapter at a time.

      Hell just reading about your story makes this awesome, unfortunately i dont have the cash for the top tier, but I would be the dad of one of the kids, and they would tell the other kids this is what we have to do, you see my dad is this ex-special op kind of guy, he does lots of things but I dont really know much except he has taught me kinds of things such as... and that when the terrorists walk in and move them, telling them all to shut up and be quiet.... later in the story the kids begin to believe and the story takes a dramatic based upon certain events along the way.
      Humbly,

    APP, BOOK, TEE: You'll get the app, name in the credits, the very limited edition copy of the book, AND an awesome tee-shirt. We'll put designs up for you to vote on once the campaign is underway, but you should know two things: They'll be high quality t-shirts, and we really hate bad design.

    YOUR NAME HERE: If you prefer your name to our names (and we wouldn't blame you, especially if you have a cool name like Benedict Cumberbatch), then check this out.

    WRITE FOR US: the Broadside is unique in several ways, but one is that it gives us the chance to bring the voices of other writers into the world of the story. This is your chance to be one of those voices. You'll work with the Broadside's editor to determine a topic and time. We'll retain some editorial control because we have to make sure everything fits in the story, but we'll make sure your article appears in the app. AND, you'll get everything in THE "AND" LEVEL.

    CREATE A CHALLENGE: One of the coolest things about the Seven Poets app (we think) is how we're able to extend the world of the story into the life of the reader through challenges. You'll get everything in THE "AND" LEVEL, and we'll also bring you in to collaborate on creating a challenge for the one of the chapters. You'll get an inside understanding of how we think through each week and day of content, and you'll help put together the experience for the user.

    HANDMADE: Everything in THE "AND" LEVEL and a hand-bound book made by the same designer that created the chapter illustrations for the Seven Poets. Each book will be unique, containing the chapters and newsroom articles as well as other elements of design from the app. We're very much aware this might sound lame, but we assure you these will be closer to works of art. *You'll notice the date is February for delivery--since these will be uniquely crafted by the same person, they'll be delivered at different times, in order of first support. We'll keep you updated throughout the process.

    FATHER & SON: This is truly unique which is why it's extremely limited and expensive. Two things will happen. First, you'll be written into a chapter of the book as a character. You'll be interviewed and analyzed until we have a decent enough understanding of who you are to figure out how you might fit into the story. You might be in one chapter. You might be in more. But you'll be very much alive in the Seven Poets universe. Second, you'll receive an original oil painting of a scene from the book. You'll be written in by the author, Matthew Brown (Son). The painting will be by James E. Brown (Father).
