    GOOD THINGS COME IN THREES

    The campaign is 33% to its goal.

    To celebrate this milestone, I have gone to the home of Molly The Cat, down to the Conch Republic Embassy basement and created, with a little help from my friends, three enameled keychains.

    Each imperfect 'objet d'art' features number “3” and a shape of a heart. You can have one alongside of the book for a pledge of $33. See the photo in the campaign description.

    This one is for the lovers of Tom Robbins and the number 3.

    TWO BOOKS. FOR TWO? FOR ONE?

    Why would you get two copies of the same book?

    Well, you could give one to a friend as a gift, you could sell the second copy on eBay in some distant future, you could have a special copy for lending to friends that don’t return books, you could just have a spare for your second home or your boat. Who could say? Whatever your reason is—this reward is for you.

    You, of course, get the digital copy of ‘america is…” poem and a name mention in acknowledgement section of the book.

    A FUTURE RARITY

    I have 15 copies of my first book ‘dearest void’ left in my possession. I could keep them and hide them in a time capsule for future generations, but I have decided to part with them.

    PRIVATE READING

    You really want this book to happen. I’ve spent days racking my brains trying to figure out what I could offer as thanks for your generosity.

    Apart from you getting all the caboodles that exist in this campaign, writing and typing and adding a custom poem dedicated to you to the book, the only thing, I could think of, is to show up personally and read for you and your guests for two hours, awkward banter and answers to your questions included.

    The only caveat is that this needs to happen in Portland, Oregon.

    Includes:
    • Digital copy of 'america is...' poem
    • A copy of 'america is a dry cookie' book
    • Sticker
    • A book bag
    • A copy of 'dearest void' book
