    The warm fuzzy!
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    You want to help, but let's not get carried away here. You simply can't afford to spend willy-nilly on some crazy plan to write a so-called sciency fiction book. Alternatively, you may be one of Dain's relatives. Either way, your participation in this campaign will be richly rewarded with a 35' hand made wooden yacht with ... oh wait, no. Not for a buck. You get the warm fuzzy. That's what you get. And a guaranteed smile from Dain.

    A warm fuzzy and DRM-free PDF of EMWAN!
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    You want to help, but you aren't fabulously wealthy and made of solid gold. Perfectly understandable. How about this, toss a crisp five-spot into this site, and get a snazzy DRM-free copy of EMWAN when it drops. Your finger is about to click, I see... why not keep reading a bit more? Maybe there's something even more awesome to get?

    All of the above, plus a handwritten letter!
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    You definitely want the entire ARCHAEA series, but you want to do a little more to help... you're still not ready to let Dain sleep on your couch, naturally. Kick down 25 bones, and get everything you would have for $10, in addition to an actual hand-written, personalized letter, suitable for framing. If Dain White becomes world famous, it'll be priceless someday. If not, at least you got a really entertaining letter from some random science fiction author that ended up living in a cardboard box. Solid win!

    All of the above, plus beta reader access!
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    You've read ARCHAEA, JANIS, and RED. While it'd be nice to have the entire series in one gloriously electronic DRM-free PDF to go with a darn entertaining and snazzy hand-written letter from Dain White - what you really want is to not have to wait to read EMWAN. This is perfectly understandable. You will be granted permanent, early access to a super-select secret beta reader group, and will be able to get your hands on each new adventure literally months before it hits the market. As part of this group, you will be able to trade email with the author, tell him how much you loved every last little bit of each novel, and of course, point out that he uses 'of course' too much. For the life of Dain's writing career, book after book, on and on forever and ever, amen - you'll be reading the 'next story' first.

    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    You definitely want to be a beta reader, you'd love to have a personalized letter from Dain White, and you'd be thrilled to hang out (alone, naturally) on your couch to read the complete ARCHAEA series... but what you really want hanging above your couch, are book covers from the first editions of ARCHAEA, JANIS, RED, and EMWAN, signed and numbered. This is memorabilia, art, and quite possibly drool-inducing stuff.

    All of the above, plus autographed galley-proof paperbacks of ARCHAEA, JANIS, RED and EMWAN!
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    So here you are, lounging on your couch (and thankfully, it's still not where Dain sleeps) with signed limited edition prints of the covers of ARCHAEA, JANIS, RED, and EMWAN hanging on your wall above you, a DRM-free PDF of Dain White's collected works safely backed up in the cloud and an inbox full of email from Dain begging you to beta-read his latest story, EMWAN. You want more, and you know what? You deserve more. You should be using that well-worn, incredibly entertaining, personally hand-written letter from Dain White as a bookmark as you read your very own galley-proof paperbacks of the entire ARCHAEA series, each luxuriously autographed with an ink pen. Can you imagine? Actual paper! Just like they used in the twentieth century! These books are currently not available in print - but that won't stop you. You are beyond the bleeding edge here. Where you are, it's only edge.

    All of the above, plus named recognition in the preface of EMWAN!
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    All of these rewards are really nice, but you're a different sort of person. You won't turn down any of the rewards offered to lower levels, but what you really want to do is lend solid support towards a fledgling science fiction author, to figuratively nail his feet to the floor, tie his butt to a chair, and make him type until his fingers beg for mercy. You know what you want. What you will also get, in addition to the fabulous rewards offered at other levels, is named recognition in the prologue of the next book in the ARCHAEA series: EMWAN, as a prime supporter and benefactor of this wonderful addition to a bestselling series. You, are awesome. Dain White will make sure the rest of the world knows it.

    Pledge $500 or more About $500

    All of the above, plus the ability to directly contribute a name to EMWAN!
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    You are a science fiction fanatic. You see the potential in Dain White, and absolutely love every word of the ARCHAEA series, and spend nearly every waking moment on Twitter, Facebook and Amazon railing on Dain White for not typing fast enough. You'd do this for the glory of the wonderful rewards offered to all other levels, and you might literally swoon to see your name in the prologue of EMWAN - but what you're going to get, in addition to all of the above, is the ability to name a character, place, ship, or... well, you get the idea. Some limitations apply, as we can't have a planet named Basketball - but you probably aren't the kind of person that would spend 500 bucks to name the corporate raider that dies in the end 'Mr. Saggybottom', are you? Let's hope not. Luckily, not even at this level do you have to offer up your couch for Dain to sleep on. Whew!
