We smashed through the second Dangerous Games stretch goal last night. This means that anyone who backs this drive at the $75+ level gets not only the regular reward but free standard ebook editions of the Matt Forbeck’s Brave New World and Shotguns & Sorcery trilogies. That’s a total of nine ebooks, plus a printed Dangerous Games omnibus!
Thanks to everyone who made this happen!
I don’t have any other stretch goals planned at the moment, as I’d rather spend the time writing and delivering the books than coming up with other incentives. If a great idea comes my way, I might leap on it, but I haven’t found it yet.
Meanwhile, though, I’m still hoping to get a group of friends to grab those Alpha Gamer rewards, which gets your entire gaming group in the book, so I decided to bump the benefit for them hard. Now each named player in your group (up to 10) gets the Game Designer package, which includes the autographed ebooks, an autographed hardcover omnibus, and early access to the manuscript. I’ll toss in shipping the books to a single address for free.
In addition to all that, I’ve been chatting up the 12 for ’12 plan at various venues. In particular:
- I wrote my first post for Huffington Post Books, and it’s all about 12 for ’12, of course. It seems to have caught a lot of attention. The HuffPo reach is wide!
- Check out the Crucible of Realms podcast released yesterday. In it, the hosts and I came up with a science-fantasy setting on the fly. Best of all, we released it under a Creative Commons license so anyone can use it for free.
Anyhow, we still have four days left, so don’t be shy of telling your friends about the great deal the higher packages have now become, and about the pumped-up Alpha Gamer package. Thanks for all your support!
