    Retailer Edition

    If you have a retail store or a wrestling company and you'd like to have some Headlocked in your retail store or at your gimmick table.

    Backers at this level will get 10 copies of Headlocked TPB's. You can mix and match any number of copies between the 5 available volumes. And we'll eat the shipping!

    (NOTE: If you want more than 10, pledge an additional 10 dollars per copy you'd like added. ex: if you want 15 copies, pledge 150)

    Remember, the Kickstarter versions of the Headlocked books will never be sold in stores or cons, so you're getting a collector's item for half off cover! And we'll include 50 glossy 3x4 promo cards to keep at the register.

    Sorry but this isn't available for international shipping. The cost would make it cost-prohibitive for everyone.

    All books will ship at once...so if you choose Tales From The Road as part of the ten books, they'll ship when Tales is completed. If you choose from the first 4 books, they'll ship immediately following the campaign.

    Under The Learning Tree

    Ain't no secret, I've made my share of mistakes. Allow me to pass on some of my knowledge. Sure, we can't ride the loop in beat up Jetta, so we're doing the next best thing.

    Backers at this level will receive a project review by yours truly. Do you have a script, a concept, a kickstarter campaign? I'll look at the whole package and make recommendations based on my experiences. I'll share my knowledge about brand building, crowdfunding, merchandising, and guerrilla marketing.

    I'll review your material and we'll schedule a 45 minute Skype session to chop it up. Be prepared to listen and bring thick skin....often times the stuff that you need to hear at the beginning is never easy.

    Understand that this is no guarantee of success...everyone's experiences are different. Just trying to help people avoid the same pitfalls that I encountered in my journey.

    NOTE: We can schedule the review immediately after the campaign is finished. The book will be shipped once its complete.

    Backers will have their facial likeness used to create a character that will be added to the cover of Michel's Tales From The Road variant cover. Who will you be?

(If you've already pledged for a character likeness in the past, we'll put that character on the cover)

    In addition to being featured on the cover, Michel and I will create a pinup to feature your character and some of their backstory. The possibilities are endless...maybe it's a mock pinup in a wrestling magazine, a mock advertisement for a supplement, a fake newspaper article, or a Facebook post by your character.

    Backers will also receive:

    -10 copies of TFTR cover you appear on.
    -an 11x17 print of the cover AND the pinup.
