The two books I read and reviewed
And the book I haven't yet read, yet love the name and title
And with her newest project, she's going Kickstarter...
That's right - Kickstarter.
Well - I couldn't resist. I pledged $30. I would have went for more, but I can't afford anymore, and to be frank....I kind of like the return on the $30 pledge. If you're not familiar with kickstarter, it's a place for artists, writers, entrepenuers to ask for support (monetary of course) and in return you are offered a token of appreciation. It can be a signed piece of work, a book, an e-copy, a postcard, a wave and "see ya sucker", whatever. Point is, you're promised something, and you invest a little bit of money. I invested in a calender project last year and was able to get an autographed picture of Gregory Maguire (of Witch fame) - which I used as a christmas present for my daughter - who loves his writing.
I would like to think that I would pledge money just for art's sake, but lets face it - getting a gift in return just makes it that much easier to help out. And when it's a lot of people investing, the pledge amounts are kept in the reasonable range where real, average people can participate. That's a win for me. :)
And take a look at the cover - I like that the green eye is still green and glowing......
ANY way there are 11 more days of the fundraising (investor gathering?), so if you want to donate anything from $1, $2, $3 to $75 or $100.... and increments in between ($20, $30, $40, etc) get on over to Kickstarter and take a look around. Click on the cover above (Devils' Field - I really hope they're referring to more than one devil) or on the word Kickstarter way above that should be in bright green font to get directly to Snyder's page.
