Your Last Week to Contribute to Badge's Kickstarter Campaign, Plus New Reward!!!

This is it, folks. If you've been on the fence about my Kickstarter campaign to fund my third novel Badge, it's time to help push it over the top! We've still got a few days, but boy would a few contributions today make a big difference. 

I've also included a new reward! It's called the Aspiring Writer, and it's for folks who want me to critique their novel or nonfiction manuscripts. You'll get my line-by-line edits of your book (up to 80,000 words) and an extensive, detailed assessment that will tell you what's working, what isn't, and how to fix it. The contribution level for this is $1,000, which is in line with what you'd likely be quoted on the open market. And here's the beautiful part: If you contribute at this level, you'll have up to two years to get your manuscript together! What more motivation do you need to finally get started on that book now? Contribute!

And did you read the first chapter of Badge?

And did you read the essay I published last week at this blog about golfing with the Refreshments

And did you read my essay published in The Rumpus last week about packaging in all its glory

Folks, this is my last blog before this thing is over. Whether I publish a victory blog next week or give my concession speech is largely in your hands. Please contribute.

Yours in laying down the law,


Contribute to the Kickstarter campaign for my third novel Badge.

Hey Art, will you critique a Draft 2??? lol!

Is there a minimum contribution? I rather feel like I should help, because you were a big help to me a few years ago. I'm *still* trying to work your suggestions in to my novel!

And holy cow, getting a serious critique of my draft 2 would go a *long* way toward me doing draft 3!!!

Anyway I do wish you the very, very best of luck with this.

Awwww Art, I went and had a look at your Kickstarter page, and you're wearing an OWL shirt in that photo!!! That's a dirty trick! How can I not contribute to a project by a guy who's willing to be photographed wearing an owl shirt, and then post that photo on the net! :D

Everything said was very logical. However, what about this?
suppose you were to create a awesome title? I am
not saying your content isn't solid, however what if you added a title that makes people want more? I mean "Your Last Week to Contribute to Badge's Kickstarter Campaign, Plus
New Reward!!!" is a little boring. You might look at Yahoo's front page and note how they write news headlines to get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
