Let's talk about rewards

What I'm raising money for?

I'm raising money for costs associated with an editor, graphic artist, layout designer as well as show costs including a director, lighting designer and creative consultants.

Stretch Goals

Wow, I expected my mom would read this far, but you?  You've got stamina! Maybe you should be one of the amazing people I include in the book (there is a reward level for that).  Well thanks for taking the time to read through my project and I hope you'll support it.  

As a thank you for reaching 100 backers I released special "fan packages" 

When I reached my funding goal of $9,000 I released a new chapter on Cesar Millan.

Now, with over 150 backers I have just released a new chapter on David Copperfield!

What could be next???

Risks and challenges

All of the people I am writing about in this book are friends of mine. They are all aware of this project and have agreed to help. The potential risks are potential delays with editor or publisher. I have allowed extra time so even if there are any unforeseen difficulties I should not have any problems hitting my deadline.

The challenge with the premiere of the show is securing a venue. I have been talking with a few theatres and expect to have one firmed up by the end of September.

Not much risk with this project, the real challenge is to over deliver, giving my kickstarter supporters a better than expected book and a more amazing than thought possible show! I am not afraid :-)
