It's the SINGULARITY&CO SLEEPOVER SWEEPSTAKES!
So you may have heard we're running a new Kickstarter so we can keep running our SAVE THE SCI FI publishing project for another year (or more!).
Did you know that one of our backer prizes includes a SLEEPOVER at our BROOKLYN BOOKSTORE. Yup, that's right: a backer and up to 12 lucky friends will get to party down in our kooky bookstore space - all night long!
Now, you may have noticed that particular backer prize level costs $1000, and is limited to 2. Well, we're here to announce that we're offering ONE EXTRA SLEEPOVER PRIZE, which we'll AWARD AT RANDOM, to one lucky backer!
Here's how to enter the SINGULARITY&CO SLEEPOVER SWEEPSTAKES:
1. Back our new Kickstarter at $25 or more.
2. Tweet about it on Twitter. Make sure to include @singularityco in your tweet so we know you've done it!
That's all you have to do! We're serious!
Oh yeah - you can check out the bookstore here: http://youtu.be/JySDtGe8k24
GOOD LUCK SCI FI FANS!
** If you've never participated in a Kickstarter before it's super easy. In a nutshell:
- Go to the Save the Sci Fi: The Next Generation project page
- Choose a backer prize level
- Commit to back us at that level
If we don't make our goal within the next 29 days, you don't pay for anything. If we DO, you get the prize of your choosing!
