What does a short, introspective piece about the martial arts and childhood trauma have in common with a novel-length, military science-horror novel? Besides being written by the same guy, that is?
I'm talking, of course, about Shrimp and about my novel "Mask of the Other." The answer is that both focus on character, on the interior brokenness of guys who don't want to show weakness. Also, both have a home here on Kickstarter.
"Mask of the Other" is available for sale now, both as an e-book and in dead-tree, but I'd like to make it an audiobook as well. I've found a sound engineer and voice actor named Trevor Dutton who can make it sound great. If you pledge $20, you'll get the audiobook (estimated length: 11 hours), DRM-free, before it goes on sale. There are other rewards available (you could have Trevor read a message onto your voice mail!) but that's the base level.
Click here if you're interested - there are links to previews, you can hear what Trevor sounds like, you can scope out the rewards. But act now. As of this update, there are only 71 hours remaining...
