    Thanks!

    You don't want the book, but you do want to give me an attaboy. Thanks! You'll get a selection of wallpapers made from the cover image for the book. Resolutions include 1600x1200, 2500x1600, and 1080x960.

    Reader

    A digital copy of FROZEN DREAMS, via direct email (currently, either .mobi OR .epub). You'll also get the wallpaper, plus three stories set in the same universe, from my upcoming anthology of short stories. If there are stretch goal rewards, they'll be most likely linked to this tier. Note: this copy will NOT be fulfilled by Amazon. I cannot get a digital voucher for the book or anything like that, so I'll either have to email a copy myself, or set up something like Backerkit.

    The FINAL Physical book tier

    (USA ONLY: NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AT THIS TIME) To quote the man: it's is the deep breath before the plunge. One last time; and since we're going to go with chaos and madness, we might as well go *nuts*. Then again: no way I can move one hundred more physical books in three days, right?

    Anyway, this gets you a signed paperback copy of the book, plus everything in ADVENTURER. Also note that I'm putting $5 shipping on this one, because, again: my back.

    Includes:
    • Physical paperback copy
    • Digital copy of FROZEN DREAMS (.mobi or .epub)
    • Special Thanks

    Copy of Print Book - International Tier

    I've gotten feedback about duplicating this one, too, and the last one *did* fill. So I will do this, under the same certain amount of protest at the thought of those *expensive* international shipping rates. As in, expensive to *you* folks. Anyway, for this you get a signed physical book and all the benefits of the ADVENTURER level. Also note that as of this writing international shipping is in an absolute *tizzy*. September 2020 is my deadline for shipping these suckers; after that, it's up to the whims of fate and the coronavirus.

    Help define a sample RPG character!

    All of the rewards of the ADVENTURER tier, plus:

    The Fermi Resolution RPG setting will include a sample party of adventurers. At this tier, you get to help define them! You'll be choosing one sample character's name, species (from a list), profession (from a list), physical description, personality (a paragraph), backstory (a paragraph), and tagline (one sentence). I won't be doubling up on species and professions, so: first come, first served.

    I reserve the right to nix anything inappropriate, offensive (to ME), obscene, obnoxious (puns are fine), mean-spirited, or overly topical. Also: if the $4,000 stretch goal funds, character sketches for these NPCs will be the second art I pay for, right after the front cover. IF it funds, people will be provided with a digital copy of their character's sketch, suitable for printing and framing.

    Includes:
    • Wallpaper
    • Special Thanks
    • Digital copy of FROZEN DREAMS (.mobi or .epub)
    • Three stories, set in the same universe (.mobi or .epub)

    Physical Book plus Sonnet (Yes, really)

    Somebody suggested that I have one more big-tier item, so sure. This tier is functionally identical to the previous two series of physical book tiers: signed copy, ADVENTURER rewards, etc, but with one addition: an original sonnet, written by me! You can either trust me to write something nice or pick your own topic: I reserve the right to reject suggestions that are in poor taste, offensive, pornographic*, or partisan. I suggest that you commission something lovely for your spouse, partner, or SO. Perfect for anniversaries!

    *Not from prudery: I'm simply very, very bad at that writing that sort of thing.

    Includes:
    • Physical paperback copy
    • Digital copy of FROZEN DREAMS (.mobi or .epub)
    • Special Thanks
    • Three stories, set in the same universe (.mobi or .epub)

    2nd digital FROZEN DREAMS RPG session!

    (If you're sorry you missed this, now's your chance to have another bite at the apple!)

    FROZEN DREAMS is a novel, but the world it's set in is also a roleplaying game campaign setting (currently available on my Patreon*). Take this tier, and you (and up to five of your friends) can play an adventure set in this world, with me as your GM! We'll get together via Zoom or another online platform, and play a four hour adventure specially written for this event. You will also get a physical copy of FROZEN DREAMS, and all the other rewards of the PHYSICAL BOOK tier.

    Physical book (You SURE about this?)

    (USA ONLY: NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AT THIS TIME) This gets you a signed and lettered paperback copy of the book, plus everything in ADVENTURER. I've had people ask about this, so I'm adding this tier. But let me be honest: you're better off ordering FROZEN DREAMS off of Amazon, having them mail it to you, then having me sign it the next time you see me. Note that the fulfillment date is significantly later than the ones in the other tiers, too. The basic situation here is that I can't order books for people and have Amazon ship them. Instead they mail the books to me, charge me shipping, then I have to individually ship them to you.

    Includes:
    • Physical paperback copy

    Copy of Physical book (2nd Series)

    (USA ONLY: NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AT THIS TIME) This gets you a signed and lettered (second series, one of *thirty*) paperback copy of the book, plus everything in ADVENTURER. See the previous observation, but people have been asking, so I will get out of my own way here. Get 'em while they last, because I dunno if my back can handle manhandling a third series around.
