Kickstarting Book Two

I gave in to the inevitable and launched a Kickstarter for book two. Funds were coming in here fairly well, but Kickstarter is more visible. People have a more secure feeling about it. And it may also reach people who read and loved book one but don't check this site.

If you originally bought a presale here, you're not missing anything in terms of rewards per dollar amount at Kickstarter (ie, if you bought a $50 presale, you're getting the same things as someone who "kicks" $60--it's more to account for overhead), but there are some opportunities I didn't offer here. For instance, for $500 I'll name a book two minor secondary character after you (my choice, not necessarily someone who looks or acts like you) and you'll get a 15-minute Skype chat with me. For $1000 I'll name a book 3 major secondary character after you (same provisos) and chat for 30 minutes.

Anyway, here's the video. Yes, that's what I look like:

I love it! The line at the end makes me think "Take that, Mr. Jordan!" (not that he did it on purpose, but still...)

One question: Those of us who pre-sale and Kickstart - will there be a whole lot of difference between the two? I can't remember what you get for the pre-sale.

...on putting you in there somewhere, never worry. You've earned it.

SO MUCH! It's all amazing! Do you think you'll use Kickstarter again? I see you're nearly at your goal.

Yes. I've raised money far, far faster than I have on my own. It took weeks to get where I am on Kickstarter.

I've never Kickstarted anything before -- that was surprisingly easy! And wow, over $1300 already? This calls for a hearty hip-hip-huzzah and gratuitous fireworks, at the very least. Smile

My five-year-old nephew's been watching most of PES's videos on loop for what seems like days now, which is why I had it ready to mind (and link).
