As each stretch goal is unlocked, the next two will be revealed. Expect a lengthy writeup on how the bonus books will work if we're lucky enough to get that far. (A hint: the backers will get to vote on what books fill those slots.)
ACHIEVED! - $16,500 - Novel Upgrade #1: THE ILLUSTRATED COVER
All versions of the book will feature this full-color illustrated cover by fantasy artist Rob Carlos:
ACHIEVED! - $18,000 - Novel Upgrade #2: THE MAP
All versions of the novel will include a map of Fartherall, the game world of the book's fictitious MMORPG, Fartherall Online, and the setting of the Gamers films and JourneyQuest. All zones created as part of this campaign will be included on the map and become canon in the world
ACHIEVED! - $20,500 - Novel Upgrade #3: THE GLOSSARY
All versions of the novel will include a glossary of internet lingo and MMO pidgin, presented dictionary-style.
EXAMPLE: pwn (pone) v. [trans.] to "own" (informal), i.e. to defeat; to defeat by a wide margin; to humiliate one's opponent
ACHIEVED! - $23,000 - Novel Upgrade #4: THE EVIL COVER In addition to the regular dust jacket, backers who pledge at $100 and above will receive this alternate dust jacket cover by Rob Carlos. The alternate cover features the logo of , the antagonist's guild, and is presented from their point of view, so the back cover will feature quotes and a synopsis talking crap about the heroes and the author.
ACHIEVED! - $27,500 - Novel Upgrade #5: GOODIES GALORE • All backers at $25+ will receive a double-sided bookmark featuring the good and evil versions of the illustrated cover, autographed by artist Rob Carlos (pictured below) (the bookmark, not Rob Carlos).
• All backers at $50+ and above will receive a folded, full-color poster version of the map (Novel Upgrade #2) from the front of the book.
• A mini-pilot version of the story that I wrote for Machinima will be added to the screenplay reward (part of the $100+ levels). This version, written for a web series audience, features a very different take on the characters and the story.
• All backers at the (new!) $125 level will receive everything from the $100 level, AND their alternate Evil Cover dust jackets (Novel Upgrade #4) will come wrapped around an additional hardcover of the novel. Folks pledging at every level above $125 will also find hardcovers tucked in their Evil Cover dust jackets as well.
I bought a lap top a while back, to make it easier to handle my school work on the road. The other day the touch pad went out on it for some reason, so now I have to use a wireless mouse to move the cursor around... I'm having trouble remembering to use the mouse, I keep reaching over and dragging my finger across the pad Read More...
