Got a dollar burning a hole in your pocket and can't decide whether you'd like to fund a book or a buy a candy bar? Well, candy is certainly delicious, but reading is pretty awesome too! No other reward other than the undying gratitude of this humble writer, which is well worth a dollar if you ask me.
Two signed printed softcovers, an 11x17 poster of the cover, a bookmark, a button, AND THE ULTIMATE PERK: the chance to pick a character to be featured in a short story. There is one rule though. There will only be one story per previously published book, so once a universe has been claimed, it cannot be picked again. First come, first served. If you choose this reward, please leave your choice in the comments so that it will be readily apparent to all other possible contributors. Otherwise, you get to tell a professional writer what to write, and that's pretty cool, right?
