One week in!
7 days in and things are going quite well! We're almost 25% funded and have all of May in front of us to gather more support. A big thank you to all of you who have contributed and spread the word. We are doing great and we haven't even hit cruising speed in the outreach and publicity department.
It is encouraging to see this kind of support for independent publishing as well as feminist speculative fiction. Right now is an important time for women's rights and if SF can be a part of the ongoing conversation, all the better.
Also, as you may have noticed, this anthology doesn't have a firm title yet. We're working up a few ideas and will be posting a poll to get feedback from the backers on what they think sounds good. This whole process is about participation and cooperative effort, so proposed-title poll seems like a natural thing to do.
Thanks again for the support. Take care!
