About this project

I'm an author with two published books. I've just finished a third book called Almost Super, and am starting the 'publisher hunt'. I'm hoping this book will be picked up, but even if it's purchased tomorrow the book won't likely be printed for a good 18 months.

I'm far too impatient. I heard about Kickstarter and thought it might be fun to not only get the book out a little sooner, but also give folks a chance to get a true first edition copy of the book.

The book is complete, and ready for printing. If I can raise $5,500, I will have enough to do a small print run. Anybody who contributes the specified amounts will receive a signed copy of the book.

But what is the book about, you say? I'm glad you asked. A brief synopsis can be found at http://almostsuper.org. If that isn't enough, you can read the entire first chapter at http://almostsuper.org/chapterone.pdf
