Thank you! We did it!!
Futuredaze: An Anthology of YA Science Fiction is coming in early 2013!
For someone like me who never seems short of words, I found myself speechless when the Futuredaze Kickstarter campaign closed. It's taken me some time to figure out what to say--other than "Thank YOU!" After all, "Thank You!" is what matters most, but more words need to be said.
When I first came up with the idea of Futuredaze and began discussing the specifics with Hannah, I knew we needed an extra financial boost to make the anthology possible. When I sat down to look at what our budget needed, on top of what I was already contributing, I figured out that $1,700 would get us the bare minimum. That was a big number for us to raise, and I wasn't really sure how well the idea of a YA science fiction anthology would be received. After all, when I looked at what was selling and what was currently available in the market, I didn't see anything like Futuredaze being published.
When we began this Kickstarter campaign and the emails started coming in from people (from backers and from authors) thanking us for giving their kids a science fiction option, we realized that we were onto something special. We couldn't be more honored to have each and every one of you as backers and to know that you are an integral part of Futuredaze.
Not only did you help us meet our original goal of $1,700, you helped us to also reach our stretch-goals of getting 100 backers and raising $2,500...and then you helped us surpass those numbers. In total, 127 backers raised $2,630 for Futuredaze. As a result, we will be able to include at least 15 short stories and 10 poems--maybe more. Again, Hannah and I are extremely grateful for your support and your belief in this anthology.
We will spend the next 6 months building the best YA SF anthology possible. Along the way, we'll continue providing you with progress updates and we'll also be in contact with you to send out your backer rewards when they are available. In the meantime, if you have any questions, let us know.
