48 Hours to Go - Triple Bonus Stretch #5,6,7

2 likes

OK, Crunch Time.

Let's break up the stretch into delicious, tempting bites. 

If each of you told 3 friends today, even if only one of them signed up, we might sell 1000 books. I would be seriously excited about that. And I am willing to work for it.

I'm doubling down with extra bonus offers:

$40,000 Milestone Bonus - The Shrimp cooker + double the Teeny Tiny Mass Heater plans.

I'm planning to prototype this at the AT course in June.  Since the basic version is more of a cooker than a mass-heater, I would like to make a special deal about it.

If we hit $40,000, I will give every backer plans to ALL THREE teeny tiny heaters - Kiko's Masonry Heater Hat, the Nymph submersible pocket-rocket, and the Shrimp compact wood cook stove.  Plus a good peek inside Peter's Minnie Mouse and Fat Rabbit.  Since this basically expands stretch goal #1, let's just call this a milestone bonus. 

#5) Mysterious Manifolds for $42,000

eBook showing more alternatives, for book backers at $24 and up, as I said in update #11.

#6) Rocket Kitchen Secrets for $45,000

Beautiful rocket kitchens, in-depth interviews with their makers and owners.  5 examples as a bonus at the $45,000 mark, for all backers, delivered in eBook form in time for Christmas.

#7) Rockets Go Mainstream for $50,000

Would you like a slim, glossy booklet or 'Zine with dozens of gorgeous and mesmerizing rocket pictures, to inspire your eco-fashionista friends?  How about:

Rocket Wood Cook Stoves and Heaters: The Cleanest, Greenest, Leanest, Most Elegant Wood Burning Stoves in the World

A dozen of the most beautiful and multi-functional projects we can discover, with exclusive new pictures, builder and owner interviews, and the inside scoop on what's behind those pretty faces.

If we make $50,000, all our "serious backers" ($50 and up) will receive this ...Most Elegant Wood Burning Stoves in the World eBook in time for Christmas 2016. 
I would also like to send a glossy printed copy to our higher-level supporters: backers at the Patron and Sponsor levels, contributors of the winning dozen examples, and all Boosters who brought in $500 or more.

Builders and owners are welcome to submit your own projects for inclusion.  I already have examples I want to include from Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Denmark, Israel, the Netherlands, the USA.  And I might get to add a silky, tadelakt Moroccan steam-bath to the list.

Right now it's just a pie-in-the-sky dream, and my tadelakt experience is this big:

But if you come through, I will. 

Even if I can't reach the project owners in time, I can still draw you a pretty clear picture.

Let's engage all remaining boosters, and turn this first Kickstarter into one amazing year's worth of creative work and play.

Many thanks,
