Update #27

BIGGER IS BETTER!

Comment

We did it!  With the help of some new backers and a couple of major supporters adding all ten Oxymoron variants to their packages, we passed the $15K mark!  And that means we're going OVERSIZED!  

How big are we talking?  Here, let me show you.  Watch this really quick:

Okay, great, you're back!  

So, yes, thanks to you all, all versions of the Oxymoron hardcover will now be oversized!  But, with 7 more days to go in the campaign, we've got a few more surprises left for you.  I just unveiled the $16K mystery unlock.  

When we reach $16,000, THE RED TEN #2 KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE VARIANT will be added to the reward packages of all backers with pledges of $50 or more!

Featuring a haunting black and white cover by THE RED TEN cover artist Charles Paul WIlson, III (Stuff of Legend) this will be a super limited print run available only to Kickstarter backers with pledges of $50 or more. If your pledge is already at that level, you don't need to do a thing...the book will be added to your current package if we hit $16K. 

*** BONUS GIFT FOR ALL WHEN WE HIT 300 BACKERS! ***
