Again, thank you to all who have pledged. To celebrate reaching the goal, I'm going to add a couple of bonuses:
- All of the rewards that include signed paperbacks ($65 and up) will now also include a signed paperback of Conspiracy, Book 4 in the Emperor's Edge Series (scheduled to release in May).
- All of the rewards at $10 and above will now include the zip file with all of the ebooks I have out at the time of the packaging. At the least, this will add Conspiracy, my Flash Gold steampunk novellas, and my Goblin Brothers short stories to the existing books in the deal (Emperor's Edge 1-3, Assassin's Curse, and Encrypted). As always, the ebooks will be DRM-free, so you can give them to a friend if you already have them.
Want more bonuses?
If we reach $4,500 by the end of the campaign, I'll have the cover and formatting done to produce a paperback version of Encrypted and include that in all of the signed paperbacks packages. That'll mean you'll be getting five physical books instead of three.
I'll also add some goodies onto the audiobook packages. I'll record an audio Q&A and answer one question from everyone who pledges toward an audiobook reward. I've also gotten Starla Huchton to agree to doing a behind-the-scenes chat about narrating the Emperor's Edge books. These interviews will be included in all of the rewards that come with audio files.
Thanks for your support, everyone!
