Well, we are in the final week of the campaign ( and all we can say to our backers is Thank you! Their support has made this project possible and will allow us to pay those involved, include art, and so much more. 

So many people have gotten behind the project, that we wanted to recap exactly what the backers–current and future–are all getting for their pledge, in addition to the book Gaslight and Grimm: Steampunk Faerie Tales.

And our Funding Goal Prize Pack, which one lucky backer at the $20 or higher level has a chance to win once the campaign ends. The prize is now finalized. To celebrate the release of his new novel, contributor David Lee Summers has added autographed copies of all three books in the series to the prize pack. Here is the full list of prizes along with pictures. (NOTE: the hair stick shown is not an actual image of the set the winner will receive. Unfortunately we were not able to get a photo of the one that comes with the prize pack so this one is there just for representation. The actual pair that comes with the prize is darker and much nicer.)
