    All of the above PLUS:

    a copy of the eBook. I will try to provide as many readable formats as possible.

    YOU CAN READ THE BOOK EVEN WITHOUT AN eREADER: it will be available online via a password protected webpage.

    A note on delivery dates: I aim to get it finished well before the release date of the "Elite: Dangerous" game, but I will not compromise the quality of the final product by rushing it.

    PATRON OF THE ARTS: All of the above PLUS: A personal webpage (NOT a blog post, an ENTIRE webpage - dedicated to you and your awesomeness). I am happy to discuss content with you. It can be stuff about you, your dog, your girl/boyfriend, your hobbies, or any topic(s) you are interested in, or just an online shrine you can use for bragging rights with your mates. You can give me the content, or ask me to write it for you (clean, legal, and cert. PG12 only please). PLUS my eternal gratitude also gets you a communication hot line. Email me, and I'll email you back like you are one of my friends (this is optional - you may decide you don't like me, which is fine.) NOTE: Delivery date refers to the website going live online, email communication is open as soon as your contribution is confirmed. NOTE 2: I'm pretty good at responding to email, but it may take me minutes or a few days - the writing has to come first.

    ***Name one minor character in the book*** You get to name a minor character in the book, as long as the name fits with the character, the plot, and the game universe of "Elite: Dangerous". This reward does NOT include naming rights in the game. I reserve the right to refuse any inappropriate submissions. In the event of a disagreement, we will can work out an alternative, but if compromise cannot be achieved in a reasonable timescale (i.e. it hinders the writing of the book), I reserve the right to make a final decision. This reward has been issued by special request, and bonus points have been awarded for creativity.
