New Reward Tiers
Happy Veteran's Day! Matter Deep would like to start with backer update by thanking all of our veterans who have served our country to protect the ideals that America was founded on.
Today, a week and a day into this project, we are at 36% of our funding goal. We can't stop now! Though there is traditionally a lull in funding mid-project, we cannot rest until we hit 100%. This book needs your help to exist; please remember to tweet and share on your social networks.
To encourage more pledges, we've added two new reward tiers. By the way, did you know there was a word limit on the size of Kickstarter descriptions? We hit it!
The Incognito Project
Last summer, Matter Deep funded a project on Kickstarter to fund The Incognito Project book. This beautiful art book was printed in time for our November release and retails on Amazon for $65. You can get a copy of this limited-edition art book, as featured on the Huffington Post, for a pledge of $55 along with a thank you credit in The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing.
You can preview some of the art in the book at www.terrystricklandart.com
Full Works Design
Carly Strickland's design article in The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing will feature advice on laying out the interior text file for your book. Createspace offers automatic templates, but professional publishers can easily spot these layouts, and not all of them are very professional or easy to read.
For a $350 pledge, you can take all of the stress out of your print edition by putting it in the hands of Carly Strickland herself! You will get a full-wrap cover files and an interior layout file. You will get all the rights to these designs and the ability to upload and sell your paperback on Createspace right away.
Of course, this package also comes with The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing in paperback and digital formats and a contributing author credit. If covers and print layouts give you anxiety, consider delegating this responsibility and helping to support independent art at the same time.
Got a Tumblr? You can reblog our Kickstarter video here and help boost the signal.
Thank you all! You have been rocking my world this month. Keep it up.
