Launch Emma

Flatmancrooked frames it like this

For just $10, you can buy a share in Emma [Straub]’s future. As recompense for that investment, you get a signed and numbered copy of her first stand-alone book (above is an excerpt and the fabulous cover featuring beautiful art by Raul Gallardo). Buy multiple shares, get multiple copies. Give them away to friends, neighbors, and libraries; help start a career.

—but really it’s the GIANT GREEN BUTTON that makes it work. From now on, every innovative publishing model needs a giant green button.

I knew that the Giant Green Button would just take me to Paypal or something. And I wasn't convinced enough to pay $10 for the book. But I had to click it. I HAD TO.

Would a love letter convince you? If you do choose to push that button, send me your mailing address, and I'll write one on the spot.
