Alright ladies and gentlemen. I have posted the potential reward tiers, which of course are subject to change over the next couple of weeks before we start with crowd funding the book on December 10th. But I wanted to speak really quickly to the goal. I want to do this for a living. Be able to write books every three years, travel the world to hear and record peoples stories, and continue to write my heart out. In fact, that is why I am going the self-publishing route in the first place. I don’t want anyone to own my work and essentially use me for a purely financial purpose. If there is ever a deal that is going to be made with a big publisher, I am going to use the success of this campaign as leverage. If we can’t come to an agreement, hell, I will keep doing it myself :).

If you like the blog, you will love the book. I have been humbled already by some of the things that my test readers have told me, and can’t wait to see what everyone else has to say. In order to make this whole thing worth it, we have to get a thousand people to contribute to keep the dream alive. In my heart, I know that this is a completely attainable goal, and we are going to crush it. But I do of course need your help. I will continue to put it on the line for you each and every single day, and I hope that you can support me to keep this dream alive. I can’t wait to see this become real.

Below are the reward tiers I have created. I think that you will like some of the things I have planned for you. Oh and also, please please please comment on this page, and tell me if you have any other ideas or better ideas! I am 100% up for suggestions.
