The bare minimum! (OR Perhaps 'A Little Extra!' if you've already supported at another level! already) Ohh. . . that felt good! Thanks! Every little bit helps. This is also the ideal reward for religious (or anonymous) supporters, who are extremely skeptical about the book's eventual worth,but are curious enough to take a chance. ;-) Your reward is the joy of seeing your contribution add (slowly) to the total, (like throwing change in the pond). Enjoy that feeling!
Gratitude Reward 1 - A Public Mention of Thanks - Facebook (Plus the warm feeling of knowing you've done a good thing)
Gratitude Reward 2 - The Hat Trick of Gratitude! - A public thanking on Facebook + Twitter + A Hand Written Personal note of Thanks! (Plus the aforementioned Warm Feeling)
Novel Reward 1 - Your own kindle copy of the Ebook!
Novel Reward 2 - Soft-cover Copy of the Book + Your Own Kindle Copy of the Ebook
Personal Touch Reward 1 - Personal 30 Minute Conversation with the me, (The Author) - (By Skype or Telephone) w/you or someone else. Perhaps when the book comes out, you'll have questions, and want to discuss the book with me personally. Or you'll want me to (respectfully) share some of the book's main ideas and concepts someone close to you. If they're up for it, so am I, (and I promise to play nice). What a great gift!
Novel Reward 3 - Soft-cover Copy of the Book, Signed by the Author + Personal Note of thanks either in the front of the book or separately + Your Own Kindle Copy of the Ebook (Is my signature and a note worth $25 more to you. . . You be the judge, (perhaps one day it will be)) ;-)
Novel Reward 4 - Limited Edition, Hardcover + Author's Signature + The Hat Trick of Gratitude. Also, let me be honest, at this point I really don't even know how I'm going to create a Hardcover edition, but I know enough trouble-makers that I expect at least one (if not a few of them), will force me to figure it out by supporting me at this level!
Gratitude Reward 3 - The Full Monty Of Appreciation! - Level 2 + You named specifically in the book as a RocketHub supporter. Space is at a premium in the acknowledgments section of the book, so if you want to move from: 'and each and every one of my RocketHub Supporters', To: 'and of special note. . . These specific RocketHub Supporters: 'Your-name-here' for digging a little extra deep, I am especially grateful', you'll have to crest this reward.level! ;-)
Personal Touch Reward 2 - 30-60 Min. Conversation with me (Skype or phone) with you/small group - Includes Broadcasting Rights. This is designed for someone who 1) Has a pod-cast and would like to interview me. And/or 2) Is expecting to strongly disagree with most of my book and have at least a some of those opinions left over, after reading it, and wants to publicly (or privately) take me to task.Well, if you want, you got it, but you'll have to pay for it. ;-)
Extra (But Limited) Reward 1 - Sneak Peak at the Complete First Draft! I (of course) will be seeking the editing, and proofreading talents of professionals, however, perhaps you'd like to be added to that secret circle, and offer me some constructive criticism, advice, direction, (or just catch a spelling mistake). Regardless of what you do with your official 'first draft copy', you have had the opportunity read it 'FIRST' and (if you so choose), offer your input before it goes to print!
Personal Touch Reward 3 - Spend the Day with the me (The Author). We need not discuss the book, but if that's your interest, let's talk. We will plan out the day in advance, but I'm up for just about anything that doesn't compromise my moral/values.I will drive anywhere with 5 hours of Toronto. I'll also cover all (reasonable) activity expenses! Let's hang! I'm also a certified hypnotist, and NLP Trainer, so if you want some specific personal development work, I can provide that too!
Personal Touch Reward 4 - Personal Appearance and Presentation of the Book's main ideas and concepts to any group, (religious or non-religious, adult or young people). If this book takes off, my speaking fees will be considerable higher, so BOOK ME NOW, at this price. Date and Time needs to be agreed on, and should your group/location not be within a 5 hour drive, please add $1000 to cover my flight (anywhere in North America, (and the cost Toronto to YOU if worldwide)).
The All-Inclusive Reward 1 - Gratitude 3 + Novel 4 + Personal Touch 4 + A 1 week, guided trip to Ecuador. I will cover your flight to/from North America, and all accommodations and all activities. During your trip, my fiancé and I will take you several exotic places, and have many adventures! (This level may also great for skeptic groups, or private supporters who would prefer to stay anonymous)
