Athena’s Daughters was born of the mindset that—while we love our male science fiction and fantasy authors—we wanted to provide a platform by which creative women could showcase their incredible talents in a historically male-dominated genre. And so we set out to produce an anthology where women were involved in all aspects of the creative process, from the artists to the authors, the editors to the project managers. Women of all ages and races, abilities and physical attributes, unified by a love for art and literature.

In January 2014, we ran a Kickstarter that was successful beyond our wildest dreams. In just one month, the Athena's Daughters campaign raised $44,350 — 521% of our initial goal. During that campaign we achieved stretch goals that not only funded a companion anthology, Apollo's Daughters (stories about women, but written by men), but also funded the production of a second volume... Athena's Daughters 2 which would have an open call for submissions from any woman who wished to be included. Silence in the Library Publishing immediately began the work of putting together this second collection full of stories about a diverse assortment of female protagonists, all written by women.

Submissions for this volume opened in June, and we were flooded with great stories. After a difficult deliberation, we accepted stories by: Tiffani Angus, Antha Ann Adkins, Sarah Brand, Elizabeth Bridges, Megan Chee, Liz Colter, Janice Croom, Ellen Goodlett, Emily Lavin Leverett, Alison J. McKenzie, Megan O'Russell, Tish Pahl, Carrie Ryan, Rori Shay, and Tess Tabak. We'll tell you more about each author below.

Because payment to authors, artists, editors, and layout professionals has already been completely covered by the previous Athena's Daughters Kickstarter, we can keep the initial goal very low—enough to cover the costs of printing and shipping. This will allow us to set some really cool stretch goals at very low levels. 

As we hit stretch goals we will be adding more stories (and more art!) to our anthology. Our stretch goal authors are Jordan Frederick, Lindsay Kitson, Nicole Givens Kurtz, Gerri Leen, Janine A. Southard, and JY Yang. Additionally, backers will receive extra stories and other free downloads as we hit these goals.

There is a whole team of us here at Silence in the Library that will be working to bring this anthology to life. Kelli Neier created the cover and will be doing the print and eBook layout, as well as managing the Kickstarter campaign. Ginger Breo has created all the internal art attached to each and every story. Autumn Frederickson will be doing a special cover for the print version of the book, if we hit her stretch goal. Tanya Spackman will be the copyeditor, and last but not least, Maggie Allen and Janine Spendlove will be the content editors and overall project managers.

"Athena's Daughters 2" theme lyrics written by Chris Russell:

Something romantic
Nothing pedantic
Something for everyone
Athena's Daughters 2!

Something that's tragic
Something with magic
Something for everyone
Athena's Daughters 2!

Something that's grim,
Something that's Greek!
Ok, we're sold!
Our Interest is piqued!

Stunning surprises!
Near missed demises.
Stories determined to delight!
Fairytales and death plots!
Outer space and robots!
Love stories and chases!
We covered all the bases!
Panderers!
Philanderers!
Cupidity!
Timidity!
Mistakes!
Fakes!
Rhymes!
Crimes!
Writers!
Fighters!
Artists!
Farces!

Maybe a curse, written in verse,
And a few happy endings, of course!
Goodness and badness,
Panic and madness--
Please help our stories see the light!
Don't wait 'til tomorrow
Back the book tonight!

Autumn Frederickson
Autumn has been creating fantasy worlds since early childhood. After moving to Los Angeles with her buddy, the pink haired monster Freddy Scribbles, she launched Daydreams & Giggles in March 2012. Since then, Autumn and Freddy have hit the comic-convention circuit, traveling from coast to coast whilst peddling their wares. Crayon scribbles of unicorns gave way to stylized paintings of caped heroes and other popular characters. Her ever growing brigade of watercolor Lemonheads has become increasingly popular with children and adults alike.

In addition to commissioned art and conventions, Autumn still continues to work on a personal body of illustrations that draws from numerous mythological and fairytale sources as well as her own, personal brand of humor. She created most of the illustrations for the interior of the first volume of Athena's Daughters.

Quick Explanation: Kickstarter doesn't really have an intuitive way to do add-ons, and the process can be confusing, so here's a quick explanation.

To add one of the below onto your current pledge, just click on the "Manage Your Pledge" button at the top right of the page, click in the "Pledge Amount" box, and change the pledge amount to reflect the addition of the amount of the add-on you want. Example: if your current pledge amount is $10, and you want to add a $5 add-on, you would click into the "Pledge Amount" box and change the pledge amount to $15. At the end of the Kickstarter, we'll send out a questionnaire to find out what add-ons you contributed for.

Risks and challenges

One of the most exciting things about Athena's Daughters 2 is that the stories are all in (even the stretch goals), and the artwork is all complete. This means that the delivery timeline for the anthology will be much shorter than in past projects. Our goal is to have the eBook to you no later than two months after the Kickstarter ends, and the print book no more than a couple of months after that.

The only causes for delays could potentially be in printing and shipment, and we feel we've done this enough times already to know how to handle those issues, should they arise.
