I’m running campaigns on INDIEGOGO and KICKSTARTER. If successful, the campaigns will fund two Omnibus Editions in print format and potentially an Audible production and/or additional concept artwork. My goal is to raise $2,500 combined primarily to fund the creation of two “mini” Omnibus Editions in print format, including professional cover art and formatting. While I’m currently offering an Omnibus Edition that includes all 5 books on Amazon in eBook format, what I’d love to do is offer two separate Omnibus Editions, 1 and 2, in print format that would include Books 1-3 and Books 4-5, respectively. The two editions would each be about 700-800 pages, which is within the maximum page requirements for CreateSpace. (My current Omnibus Edition at about 1,650 pages is well over the limit.) Should I raise more than $2,500, I’d put the additional funding toward the audio book production on Audible, which I’m currently not funding, and/or to additional concept artwork, depending on what contributors to the project would like to see rendered. Should I raise less than $2,500, I could make up the difference on my end to create the print editions or, if I fall well short, fund one additional piece of concept art.
I’m offering: (1) signed print copies of mini Omnibus Editions when they’re finished; (2) signed posters of Livelle city-state and Beimeni City rendered by Daniel Kvasznicza; (3) Omnibus Edition (Books 1-5) eBook copies (mobi or epub format); (4) Vivetal, the novelette from which The Phantom of the Earth grew (and which is no longer available anywhere). Contribution rate / offer(s): $10 / eBook Omnibus edition — $30 / eBook Omnibus edition; signed mini print Omnibus Edition 1 — $50 / eBook Omnibus edition; signed mini print Omnibus Edition 1 and 2 — $100 / eBook Omnibus edition; signed mini print Omnibus Edition 1 and 2; signed poster of your choice (including either Beimeni City or Livelle city-state; size 24” x 16”) — $150 / eBook Omnibus edition; signed mini print Omnibus Edition 1 and 2; two signed posters including Livelle city-state and Beimeni City (size 24” x 16”) — $250-plus / eBook Omnibus edition; signed mini print Omnibus Edition 1 and 2; two signed posters including Livelle city-state and Beimeni City (size 36” x 24”); Vivetal, the story that started it all.
