    GENEROUS NARCISSIST LEVEL

    Oh yeah. I like you. A lot. In fact, if you're single, female, and close enough to forty to remember Fonzie jumping the shark, look me up. I'll let you take me to dinner and get me drunk. We'll see what happens afterwards. This is a ~Special Level~ because you'll get the Key Chain, a Paperback "FTM," the Hardcover "Barry," AND I'LL RENAME A BUSINESS or STREET IN THE BOOK AFTER YOU. Plus, I'll add your name to a special page in the front of the book where I fawn all over you and say stuff like "I couldn't have done it without this guy/chick."

    MONEY-TO-BURN LEVEL

    Are you kidding me? Do you own stock in Kickstarter or something? For this much, you'll get (2 Key Chains / a Paperback "FTM" / 2 Hardcovers of "Barry"), and I'LL RENAME A CHARACTER IN THE BOOK AFTER YOU. Really. Not a main character--get real--but a prominent one that gets mentioned lots of times and is crucial to the story. You'll definitely get on the Acknowledgment page, and I'll probably spray paint your name on a local bridge while I'm at it.

    I don't believe this. You're messing with me. You got $502 to part ways with? I like my character names. I spent a lot of time coming up with them, but I'm not afraid to sell my soul for a little cash. For this much, you'll get (3 Key Chains / a Paperback "FTM" / 3 Hardcovers of "Barry" / Acknowledgment), and I'LL RENAME A SEMI-MAJOR CHARACTER AFTER YOU.

    I am speechless. Are you a Kickstarter stalker? Are you outside my window right now? Why in the hell would you pay a grand for a freaking book? Needless to say, you get (5 Key Chains / a Paperback "FTM" / 5 Hardcovers of "Barry" / Acknowledgment), plus I'LL CHANGE BARRY'S MIDDLE NAME AFTER YOU. Forever. [If your name is anything like Dick Army or Mike Litoris, I reserve the right to refund you and claim ignorance.] And if someone actually does this one, I will bake them a batch of cookies and maybe a pie. Yes, I bake. What of it?
