Yesterday, the Dangerous Games Kickstarter drive smashed through the $12,000 barrier, which unlocks the first Respect the Streak stretch goal! That means all pledges of $50 or more get free ebook copies of the Matt Forbeck’s Brave New World trilogy of novels. Since the first one is already out, I’ll send that to all the eligible backers as soon as this Kickstarter drive ends.
We’re already on the road to our second stretch goal at $14,000. At that point, all backers at the $75 or higher level get the Shotguns & Sorcery trilogy ebooks for free too. I just added a $75 backer level (Bargain Hunter) to make it easy for you to take advantage of that, should we unlock that goal. With 9 days to go, that looks like a real possibility.
Besides backing the project, the best thing you can do is help me spread the word. If you have a blog/website/podcast, etc., that would like to lend a hand by running an article, post, or interview, that would be fantastic. In the past few weeks:
- Steve Jackson plugged the trilogy in an Ogre Designer’s Edition update
- Tony Lane interviewed me for his website
- I wrote a guest post for BookLife
- I did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) over at Reddit
- Meet the Gamers interviewed me
- Timothy C. Ward interviewed me for his podcast
- Plus I’ve done a few more bits that should show up in the next few days.
Meanwhile, please tell your friends and neighbors on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, etc., about the project, and send them my way. That kind of word-of-mouth personal recommendation is the best kind of publicity I could hope for, especially coming from enthusiastic and articulate advocates like you.
Thanks again to each and every one of my backers for your support. I’m stunned, humbled, and happy. With 8 days left in the drive, we’re doing fantastic!
