    The letter, plus a signed copy of the new book! I mean, that's what this is all for, right? The book is already written and formatted. If the Kickstarter goes well and my cover art gets done quickly, you'll get it sooner than September!

    NEW LEVEL!! Here at the new $40 level will be both books (physical and e-reader), the hand written letter from any character you choose (or who's around at the moment, seriously... they're very busy) and one of the authentic secret society collars shown in the update picture and video. These collars are made from rich velvet and are all embroidered. Some of them even feature real metal bullion trim and fringe! When you pledge at this level please leave a comment specifying which one you'd like. First pledged gets first pick!

    What all the best dressed are wearing this season! At this new level, you get the books and one of a VERY limited quantity of authentic lodge sashes. These are all made from a silky velvet overlain with bullion edging and embroidery. Rare and hard to find, these beautiful sashes will dress up any outfit... especially your reading clothes.

    NEW PLEDGE LEVEL! This reward level includes the letter, the books and their e-reader versions, and instead of a pair of goggles adds a small, derringer sized metal pistol in a left OR right peek-a-boo holster. The holster has a loop on the back that allows it to be slid onto a belt or harness. http://theskydogs.myshopify.com/collections/frontpage/products/flintlock-derringer-with-peek-a-boo-holster is a shot of this little shooter!

    The letter, the books, the e-books, AND instead of a pair of goggles (because a lot of you have many pairs of them already) a custom made wood and metal (non-working replica) full size steampunk pistol with a genuine leather holster, embossed with clockworks and aged.

    Again with the guns! This level brings you that lovely letter, the books, the goggles, and a pair (that's right, TWO) of black and gold chased pistol replicas in left and right black leather peek-a-boo holsters. Sleek and stylish, these pistols feature faux ivory grips, 'eagle head' butts (heheheh) and a tapering barrel etched in gold.

    Ok so here's where the limits really kick in, but for good reason. You get everything listed above AND one of my not-even-unveiled-at-a-con-yet-one-of-a-kind (non-working replica) FULL SIZE steampunk rifles in addition to the RIDICULOUS bounty listed before this.

    My weirdest and certainly most unique prize offer. In addition to the letter and both books in physical and e-reader format is this very interesting creature. I have a taxidermied war pig, and I am willing to part with this prized possession to get my book printed. I will display him prominently in the next video update for your perusal. He is mounted on a shield shaped wooden board with a brass plate explaining where and when this horrifying beast was slain. He has a protective eye plate, remnants of his brass armor's framework and, of course, the heavy brass hose that powered his terrifying, biologically modified, hydraulic jaw. You can't get any more one of a kind than this!

    This pledge level gets all of the swag listed before it, as well as a unique opportunity. I am currently writing the second novel (technically the third book in the series) and have room for you. Yes, you read that right. I will write you, or a persona of your choice, into the next book. A full description, clever banter with the characters, and either: a moment where you help move the plot along and slip away into the sunset OR you help them but die a horrible death so that the Arcana must avenge you! Exciting? You betcha! The delivery date includes everything but the next book, of course (though I'll send you updates and pages when I get to your part of the next story!)

    Allen Jay Penick's Personal Pledge! A unique prize level for a generous backer! Adding it here at his request: At this level he is receiving the books, a clockwork 'clock-lock' rifle, a collar of his choice, a sash, and one of my custom vampire slaying kits. He will also appear in the third novel in the series!!
