Select a Perk
  • $5USD
    eBook Version

    This perk nets you the eBook version of Victim Zero and your name in the front matter of the book. Every backer (unless they choose not to) will be credited in the book itself. At least, the electronic version. If fifty thousand people back the project I would A) have a heart attack of joy and B) not be able to realistically put that many names in a printed form.

  • $10USD
    eBook Plus Short Story

    Exactly what it says. You'll get the eBook version as well as an original short story set in the LWtD universe that will be exclusive to this campaign. Each digital copy will be sent in a variety of electronic formats to fit whatever ereader or program you use.

  • $25USD
    Print Edition

    This perk is self-explanatory. You get all of the above plus a print copy of the book. It will cost me money to have the book printed, so please add $5 for shipping. However! You may select this perk and add additional amounts for extra copies of the book without paying additional shipping. Add $8 per extra copy you would like to order. Oh, and you'll also get a nifty LWtD bookmark and bumber sticker, design to be revealed.

  • $50USD
    Personalized Autograph

    You get the eBook, short story, 2 (TWO) copies of the print edition as well as two bumper stickers and bookmarks. Shipping is included with this perk unless you choose to order additional copies, in which case add $8 per copy above the first two. I will autograph and inscribe each book however you like.

  • $75USD
    Beta Read

    This perk is identical to the $50 perk in all ways but one: you get to be a beta reader for Victim Zero. This is a chance for you to become a part of the process, read the book before its release, and make your mark on my world and characters.

  • $100USD
    Fictional You

    Identical to the $75 beta read perk, but you also get to name a character in the final book. This one is limited, but the name can be yours or one you make up. You get to choose gender and characteristics. The names have to be realistic, so if you choose "Donkey McGingersnack" I will veto that for something more reasonable.

    Your Own Story

    For $500 I will write a novella about you in the LWtD universe. You get all the perks up to the beta read (and obviously a character you name will be in this story). This novella will be created between the two of us and when I'm finished it will be your story. You will own the rights to it and be able to do with it whatever you please. Want to publish it yourself under your name? Cool. Want me to publish it and give the proceeds to charity? Fine and dandy. Whatever you want to do, we&a
