    Epilogue - What Sierra Means to Me

    Be involved in the book itself! It's said a lot that the fans make any creative effort whether that be books, TV, movies, or computer games. That's true in the case of Sierra too. You might not have worked for Sierra, but their games still meant a lot to you so get your chance to have your story recorded in The Sierra Adventure as part of this specially written epilogue. I will chat with you (generally via Skype or similar), record out interview, and write your story into this epilogue. You'll get a copy of the epilogue before printing so you can review it.

    You will also receive a copy of the hard cover book as part of this reward (and an electronic copy).

    NOTES: This reward is only applicable if we reach the stretch goal. If we don't reach the stretch goal, you will still get a copy of the hard cover book and a special mention as a super backer on the Kickstarter dedication page in the book. I reserve the right to not print your story if it's vulgar or otherwise not appropriate.
