Hello! I know this will be a repeat for those of you who have hopped on the Skyfire wagon already, but I wanted to re-post here in case any of you are still on the fence! There are lots of exciting things to behold. Here's the latest:
Sorry to repeat this to some of you, but I want to make sure anyone who's on the fence about pledging gets all the news!
So, from over at SKYFIRE, here's the latest:
Scroll down that reward bar but check it twice! There are a couple of additions. I have broken things down into a numbered list for your convenience and my sanity (because we're all about numbers when we're on Kickstarter!) So here are the things you may notice:
1. More mini-Shards. That's right--More Mini Shards because Rosie is in the UK sewing. Like. A. BOSS.
2. And...a mini-Catori plush that's going to knock your wolfie-toe socks off.
3. There is a mini Shard+Catori pledge (get it while it's HOT--oooonnly two!)
3.a: If any of you are interested in either cover art prints, or Artwork by me that is not included in the mini-plush Levels, I will ADD an original, digital fantasy piece of artwork to ANY pledge for an additional $150. I will add cover art prints at their cost. I'm totally flexible on all of that. Unfortunately, I cannot add any more mini plushies to the campaign. Rosie and I went back and forth on time, material, and her sanity to come up with these numbers.
4. Also: A handful of my loyal friends from last year are already receiving this year's book, but I know you want swag and you want to support Shard's next adventure! Hugin's Token, Munin's Token, and the Loyal Pride Member Pledge have all been included for you.
Actually you know what: those rewards all include the e-book so if you're a Kindle-Nook-Computer fiend only, feel free to nab up those Tokens and Loyal pledges if you don't necessarily want the hardback but you want to get in on ALL THE THINGS. Who's thinkin'? We are.
5. FOR WRITERS: A lovely and amazing woman who's been a close friend for about a decade has scooped up the last 'Wolfsong Pledge' which includes a critique of any manuscript up to 50,000 words (nano length!) by Yours Truly. However, she's done so to support me and the campaign, and would like to offer that writing critique to someone else.
If you are a writer and a Backer at any level $1+ please send me a note that you would like to be included in a drawing to get this critique, and I'll select a winner from those names at the end of the campaign!
6. I saved the best for last: My friend of mythic proportions, Chris Carter from over at Camp Myth, and I have been trying to figure out how to collaborate on something since last year, because when you're doing something fun and awesome, it's more fun and awesome to do it together.
In short: Camp Myth is a place where young mythic creatures go to learn how to refine their personal powers and skills--and get along with each other. They earn merit badges as they complete tasks. Chris's campaign includes real pins of the merit badges in the story, and he has had his artist create a very special, gorgeous, Kickstarter-exclusive GRYFON TAMER merit pin! (And they even spell it right ;) These pins will be 1.5 inch, cloisonne-style pins, top quality.
These Gryfon Tamer prizes will be included with ANY Pledge $50 and up--IF...you also trot over to Camp myth and support his campaign at any pledge $50+. I chose the $50 level so that my overseas backers would already be included!
By the way--Chris is already funded (like a BOSS), so that just means you're going to get in on some really amazing art, prizes, and awesomeness. Like the Gryfon Tamer merit pin. It's sooooo shiny.
I will now take questions. ;)
Fly high and fair winds my friends!
