“Pre-Order” Pledge Levels


Many people new to Kickstarter don’t realize exactly what’s going on with a KS campaign, how they work. On Facebook, one person called it “Internet panhandling.” It is far from that. For a publishing project like mine, it’s basically a way of pre-ordering my book before it’s finished, allowing me to pay for production myself and keeping Ramen noodles in my bowl while I complete it. Above are listed the pledge “rewards” for my campaign that are basically book pre-orders. The pledge bar on the right-hand side of my Kickstarter page is where you enter your pre-order “pledge.” The bar also lists “premium” rewards (which include other books I’ve written, magazines, art, and collectibles, if you’re interested in those). Download my PDF sampler if you want to get a taste of what the book has to offer before ordering. And thank you so much for your support of this project!
