Morganville is a fictional town in Texas that is run entirely by vampires and is the setting for author Rachel Caine's bestselling series of novels The Morganville Vampires. Rachel wants to take Morganville from page to screen with her own TV quality web series Amber is attached to play the role of Morganville town founder Amelie. In order to make this a reality Rachel recently launched a Kickstarter Campaign to fund the series, the good news is that as I write this the campaign is less $800 away from hitting it $75,000 target.
To help reach their goal Rachel and her team have added two Amber related reward levels with some unique Amber goodies up for grabs which I had to blog about:
Firstly there's The Founder Fan Club level in return for a pledge of $60 you will receive a signed limited edition head shot of Amber in costume and make up as Amelie. These are a very limited addition and naturally you will not be able to find them anywhere else. If you have already backed the campaign at a lower total but would like to reserve one of these unique head shots just take click manage pledge button and follow the instructions. If you have already pledged more than $60 then you have an opportunity to reserve one of these photos at no extra charge, there is a very limited supply so act now details will follow. Along with the photo you will also receive all of the goodies included within the $50 pledge.
The second Amber related reward level is:
The Amber Fan Club for a pledge of $250 you will receive not only this signed limited edition photo of Amber as Morganville town founder Amelie but also the complete set of signed Calliope Reaper-Jones novels written by Amber herself. That's right the complete set which includes Death’s Daughter, Cat’s Claw, Serpent’s Storm, How To Be Death and The Golden Age of Death. (For details on all of the books see "The Written Word" section of this website) along with this you will also receive all of the rewards included in the $200 reward level.
The campaign is U.S.-based but it is open to fans in other countries although the series will be filmed in English. Please note there will be small additional charge for shipping costs on some rewards if you live outside of the USA.
Even though are very they are close to hitting their goal if Morganville the Web TV series finishes just a penny under its funding goal of $75,000 it will not go into production so they still need help get over the finish line. The campaign will end on Thursday Jul 11, 11:29am EDT but even if it reaches its target before then you can STILL pledge and get your hands these Amber related rewards. (Subject to availability see Morganville The Web TV Series Kickstarter page for details)
Now is the time to get involved and donate if you can. If you want to support the campaign but can't afford to donate help spread the word about Morganville the web TV series use social media, tell a friend, blog or vlog or post on message boards. Rachel, Amber and everyone involved in the making of the series really appreciate your help.
