"This Is All I Can Afford" Level. Backers at this level will receive one 1.25" This is Conlan button (version 3.0) — suitable for pinning on your shirt, purse, or mustache — and a handwritten "thank you note".
The First Edition Level. Backers at this level will get your very own copy of the Mostly Lies e-book to read on your Kindle (or the phone, computer, or device of your choice using the free Kindle apps), as well as the button and handwritten "thank you note".
Social Media Expert Level. Backers at this level receive the e-book, TWO buttons, and the note, PLUS: I will write a one-line bio about you (entirely made up by me) that you can use on your social media profiles.
Contributor Level. Backers at this level receive the e-book, THREE buttons, and the note, PLUS: You get to suggest a one-word topic that I will write about in the book. E.g., if you suggest "aluminum", I will include a section (anywhere from a paragraph to a whole chapter) on what I think about aluminum. Each section will be credited with the name of the backer who suggested it (if you want).
Proofreader Level. Backers at this level get the e-book, FOUR buttons, the note, and the one-word topic suggestion, PLUS: Early access to the near-final manuscript that you can proofread for me (suckers!). You'll be credited as a proofreader in the acknowledgements section of the final edition. (P.S. You don't actually have to proofread it --- you can just enjoy it, or delete it, whatever, but please forgive any typos.)
Editor Level. Backers at this level get the e-book, FIVE buttons, the note, and the one-word topic suggestion, PLUS: I will send one or more draft chapters to you for feedback, which I may or may not incorporate into the final manuscript. You'll be acknowledged as an editor in the e-book.
Publisher Edition. Backers at this level get the e-book, TEN buttons, the note, the one-word topic suggestion, and the editorial input, PLUS: I will email you an outline of the book before I really begin the serious business of writing, and you'll be able to give your input and help shape the overall project. You'll be credited as a publisher in the final manuscript.
"You're Crazy, But I Love You" Level. Everything from all the previous levels, PLUS my undying gratitude (heck, I'll even throw in a few extra buttons). You'll be credited as supreme benefactor in the final manuscript.
