    No Peace To Keep - E-Book format

    No Peace to Keep is an E-book and this Reward Level gets you a copy lock, stock, and barrel. The book contains 83 photos of the tour, 4 maps, and 3 other items of interest to the story (letters, Company Orders the night before we entered the Medak Pocket). Currently the book is over 430 pages in length, but editing may hack it down somewhat.

    ((If you are willing to gamble on the production of an actual soft cover book - see details at another reward level. I do not guarantee that a soft cover edition will be produced - I'd like to, but it will be completely dependant upon production costs (83 pics + other sundry items does not lend well to being able to produce an economically viable, soft cover version, but the towel has not been thrown in on the issue yet!!)).

    No Peace To Keep E-Book, Sticker, etc.

    No Peace to Keep in E-book format + Overseas Service Chevrons Sticker (for your vehicle window) + The identity of two of those I am unable to name in the book + a signed tour photo. Obviously the E-book does not have to be shipped but the sticker and photo do. Ref the Sticker - During the Great War (starting in 1916) and Second World War blue Chevrons (mostly blue, but if went overseas in '14 or '39 your first chevron was red) were worn on the left sleeve of Canadian Soldiers' tunics to identify the number of years of overseas service the soldier had seen. This protocol died sometime after the Second War. In the modern day, no one speaks of how many years they have served overseas - instead we speak of the number of tours we endured. Thus, if you have three overseas tours, or know someone who does, you will receive a sticker with three Chevrons contained within a "C" and topped by the Sovereign's Crown. If you never served, you will be sent a sticker with the Canadian Government's mark of acceptance for military kit back in the day.

    BETA READER OPTION - No Peace To Keep

    What is a BETA Reader?? A Beta Reader actually receives the book pre-publication. The Reader gives the writer feedback, mainly limited to errors they have discovered such as typos in the text, the incorrect use of words not picked up by spell check or first run editing programs (the use of "of" where the author intended to use "off" for example), incorrect syntax, etc. Those that undertake this "daunting work (ha!) will also receive the Chevrons mentioned above and a photo, and the aforementioned revelation! The Beta Reader option is limited to 25 pers as too many cooks do spoil the soup!

    No Peace To Keep POSSIBLE Soft Cover

    There is no GUARANTEE than a soft cover book will ever be produced. If it is, I may have to drop a good number of the photos or undertake some other drastic measures to make sure the book can be produced cost effectively. When is the last time you came across an actual book with over 80 photos in it???So I think you may be able to appreciate the potential challenges here, but an attempt to produce one shall be made. Preliminary estimates have the cost of a softcover book at over $90 - due to the 80+photos, maps, letters, etc. Such a book would most likely be much like a soft coffee table format. At the very least for this level of support you will receive all that is mentioned in the Beta Reader level above (E-book format, Chevron Sticker or Gov't Acceptance Sticker, signed photo) and explanation of why "Aflie Bloggins". There is risk with this support level to be sure, so make sure if you do donate at this level you are aware. I will do my best to deliver on the soft copy but cannot guarantee one for certain.

    All the Goodies - No Peace To Keep

    You will receive all aforementioned items and the potential soft cover as well. This level is included in case someone feels compelled to support above and beyond ensuring a story of peace time soldering, and the tales associated with it, does not disappear forever. Should a soft cover book see the light of day, I will cover the cost of shipping. Obviously I will not turn away any incredibly generous donations.
