66% — space-themed badges and personalised starships
We're two-thirds of the way to publication! *toot toot*
We're now making moves to hoover up those demographics who like (A) space and (B) sticking things on their bags, jackets, faces and friends. In our first and only step towards this goal, we've introduced two new pledge levels! *toot*
THESE! CAN! BE! YOURS! (OR A FRIEND'S. IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO LIKES BADGES PLEASE TELL THEM)
We're offering limited-edition-will-only-ever-be-available-by-pledging-to-support-this-book-I'm-serious space-themed badges as bonuses for people pledging at the new £30 level! They'll make interesting, weird, unique gifts for the interesting, weird, unique people in your life. Plus, you see that one that says 'GTV EXAMPLE'? That's the design for a bonus £35 level...
Back in September I promoted the book by giving a bunch of people on Twitter personalised custom starship designs based on their profile - see what they looked like here. Excellent ships like the A.V. Worcester Chronicle, the Clonk Robin and the D.M.F. Shame of Loughborough took flight and people seemed to dig them.
Now I'm offering that same thing on a personalised one-of-a-kind badge for the £35 level that you can wear with pride, so that everyone knows you're the captain of starfaring galaxy-destroyer the Ken Livingstone's Shameful Remarks or whatever. You can consult on the name or let me, a professional starship-namer, apparently (are you proud, Mum?), take care of it for you. Your choice.
Massive thanks to everyone who's pledged since last time! Welcome to a club of extremely cool people. We're picking up steam towards publication and so anything you can do to spread the word - a tweet, a facebook post, a note tied to a rock sent through your neighbour's window - will be a huge help. Find a nerd and tell them: WE HAVE BADGES. UNIQUE, LIMITED-EDITION SPACE-THEMED BADGES.
BADGES. Oh, and you also get a very good book about shame and space and get to attach your name to the project for all eternity, or whatever. TELL YOUR FRIENDS
