    THE BIG BANG! - As extra special thanks for really kicking this project into high-gear, we will put YOUR NAME *AND* LIKENESS (a digital avatar of your face, or your actual picture, so long as you own the photographic copyright) in the book! You can instead choose to have the name & likeness of your child in the book, so long as you are his/her legal guardian and can sign a release allowing us to use the name and likeness in the project. Placement of the name and likeness is TBD, but most likely I envision it being a picture on a wall in the space ship that users will be able to click on to enlarge. Maybe your 'Grace's cousin? Or her BEF (best Earthling friend)?! Fine print stuff: We will retain all rights to use your name & likeness in the book, eBook, application, and any promotional materials without further compensation or obligation, so make sure you're OK with that. We’ll also send you 5 signed hardcover copies of the book to keep and give away as you wish! Plus, you get to vote on parts of the illustrations + snail mail & stickers + the advance PDF of the book + your name on our ‘Thank You’ page + all updates.
