The text for my children’s book project with Ed Delaney is more or less finalized. Everyone that’s read it so far uniformly loves the idea and thinks that I’ve gotten the voice and tone right. I may tweak it a bit (already have from what I sent out), but the hard part for me is done. Now it’s up to Ed to do the drawing and for us to work on layout.
Here’s what I hope to put out:
12 page softcover book (8 x 10)
App for iPhone/Android that includes an audio component
In order to get there I’ll need to make sure that Ed gets paid for his hard work. I’ll need to pay the developer for the app. I’ll be paying someone to do the audio for the app. Let’s just ball park and say that I’d need to raise $1500 to make that happen. That’s not out of bounds.
Here’s what I’m thinking about for levels of donation and rewards.
$1 – A heartfelt thanks and a high quality wall paper of the crew!
$5 – Your name in the backer’s section of the book, wallpaper, and an adventurer’s club button
$15 – Your name in the backer’s section, an autographed e-book, and a button.
$25 – An autographed print copy, e-book copy, and all previous rewards.
$50 – The app plus all previous levels.
$100 – Limited edition tee-shirt plus all previous award levels.
$250 – Limited edition 8.5 x 11 print of Monte, Molly, and Cyril plus all previous levels.
