4 Weeks Left! Find a Friend
I have a favour to ask: if you want to see Ten Little Astronauts hit its target, please find a friend to join you in supporting the book. If even half the people who've already put in a pledge got one more person to do the same, we'd be well on track to reach 100% by Christmas. If everybody did it, we'd actually exceed that original goal.
If you've pledged at the Paperback level yourself, the easiest way of getting a friend on board (provided they live near you) is to upgrade your own pledge to the "Read With A Friend" option. This gets you two paperbacks without having to pay any more for shipping, and both you and your friend will get your names in the back of the book.
The other big option - particularly since Christmas is coming up - would be to give a pledge to someone as a gift (and again, that Read With A Friend level is one to look into). Since Ten Little Astronauts has now gained enough support to make it into print, you can be sure they'll get their book the moment it's available (before it even goes into shops), and I'll even send a signed card or certificate that you can give them on the day. They'll get their book with their name in the back no matter what, and you'll be doing a little extra to make sure that it's a success.
That's about it for now. The amount of time left to fund Ten Little Astronauts is roughly the same as the average Kickstarter campaign, and we're already more than halfway! If you'd like to see the book reach 100%, all you have to do is find just one more person who likes it enough to put in a pledge (or, alternatively, surprise them with it as a gift!).
