This is great Paul

Is there an option to pledge/pay $100 with 0 shipping for 0 physical
books? and then I can pledge $15 ($40 with shipping) for one physical book.

If yes, how do I do that?

I want to use the "creative name" option under $100

Thanks

I'm not sure but I think maybe you need to create 2 different kickstarter accounts with 2 different emails? Can someone who has actually done this verify?

Just a reminder that if you take this route, you would not get a signed copy.

Thanks for your support!

Yes.  If you don't want any physical copies, just select Virgin Islands, U.S. as the "Shipping Destination" when you make your pledge.  Your shipping fees will be reduced to zero.

and then I can pledge $15 ($40 with shipping) for one physical book.


Yes, but you'll need to use a different Kickstarter "account" (with a different email address) for this one.  One Kickstarter "account" cannot have two different pledges for the same Kickstarter at the same time.

After you came up with the idea I did a bit of testing.  There's no way for a single Kickstarter account to record two pledges for the same Kickstarter, so if you want to make two pledges you need two accounts.  Each Kickstarter account can be accessed via either an email address or a Facebook account.  One email address can only be used to log into one account, so a person wanting to make two pledges needs to use either two different email addresses, or one email address and one Facebook account, or two different Facebook accounts.

I can confirm, as someone who also did it.
