I'm retired. No, really. So why am I running through LA, trying to dodge every conspiracy there is to stay alive? Oh, right. I'm me.

About

$1,791

46

I quit running around, doing the scut work for every conspiracy in the Information Underground, a year ago. Got myself a nice quiet life up the coast, doing normal things with normal people like my girlfriend, Mina.

And then someone framed her for murder.

Now I’m coming out of retirement to figure out who wants her behind bars - and me dead. Again. At least this time I’m pretty sure it’s not aliens. Or the government. Might still be the Russian mob, but at least Bigfoot’s on my side.

I don’t know who to trust, and I don’t know how I’m going to survive this one, especially with an unkillable hitman, some Satanists, and a couple of lunatic movie stars gunning for me. But one thing’s for sure…

I really need a better career plan.

Help Candlemark & Gleam get ready for the print release of Get Blank, the fast-paced, hitman-filled sequel to the excitingly hilarious conspiracy-noir novel Mr Blank by Justin Robinson - pre-order your copy today, and get some cool bonuses as a reward!

Publishers Weekly called Mr Blank "a sassy crime caper" - clearly, you don't want to miss out on discovering whether the sequel is just as sassy, or if we're just implanting subconscious impulses to read the novel now fnord.

We're already planning ahead and swinging for the fences with this one. Justin has limbered up his writing arm, and we're offering some crazy-awesome escalator rewards...

Stretch Goals:

$500 UNLOCKED: Swag!
At $500 in pledges, everyone who backs for $20 or more will get a Bag O' Swag relating to the novel. No telling what's in it, but we promise it will be neat!

$750 UNLOCKED: Rosicrusophy and You
At $750 in pledges, you, too, can become a member of the fastest-growing celebrity cult in America! All backers at the $20 and up levels will receive a PDF of the award-winning, life-changing, problem-solving, fat-burning tract Rosicrusophy and You!

$1,000 UNLOCKED: Calling All Conspiracies
At $1,000 in pledges, you get to call in some backup. Everyone who backs at $35 and up will get a Calling All Conspiracies kit, helping them flag down the nearest local members of the Information Underground to help out on an assignment. Warning: results (and survival) not guaranteed.

$1,500: Who's Who
At $1,500 in pledges, it’s time to learn more about the Information Underground. Backers at the $40 and up level will get a PDF of Our Protagonist’s definitive guide to Who’s Who in the Information Underground, while backers at the $45 and up levels will get a printed version, too!

$2,000: Double Agent
At $2,000, anyone who backs for $35 and up will get their very own Conspiracy Membership Card - a special double-sided ID card verifying that you're a member of one of the most powerful groups in the Information Underground...and also a member of a second organization. Make sure you show the right side to the right conspiracy!

$3,000: Stop - Novella Time!
At $3,000 in pledges, Justin has vowed to write a novella that ties in to the Blankverse. That’s right, a full bonus novella for all you folks who back at $25 or above. How can you resist?

Beyond that? Let’s just say that Justin is willing to keep writing if you’re willing to keep backing…!

Risks and challenges

While there are risks in every project, we've already addressed most of them here! We're experienced book publishers, specializing in fantastika, and we're ready to bring this book to the world.

The manuscript is done, edited, and typeset; the cover art is in; the book is queued for production and WILL launch on May 23, 2014 - we're just looking for pre-launch interest and a way to help pay for the initial printing costs.
