Backer Surveys

You've probably noticed that backer surveys went out yesterday. Many of you have already responded, and we want to thank you for that. If you haven't had a chance to respond yet, please do so as quickly as possible. The eBook of HEROES! is essentially ready to go. The only major things we need now are your designation of whether you want to be listed as a "Hero" or a "Villain" in the book, and your input as to how you would like your name to appear.

Thanks so much! We're really excited about getting this to you soon. 

Cool Projects

1. Young Explorers Adventure Guide

We've mentioned this one before, and we're bringing back again because (a) the Kickstarter is in the last week of funding and (b) it's a really cool project that we'd love to see go through the roof.

The Young Explorers Adventure Guide is a collection of middle-grade speculative fiction from a host of great authors, including several Hugo and Nebula Award winners. The concept behind this collection is to ensure that all children have the opportunity to be engaged by characters that reflect their backgrounds. They want children of all racial, gender, and cultural backgrounds to be able to see themselves in the heroes and heroines they read about...and we love that idea. Please give it a look by clicking on the title or image above.

2. The Society for the Preservation of CJ Henderson

You may recall that Silence in the Library Publishing ran an Indiegogo anthology project a few months back called Dance Like a Monkey, with the proceeds going to help author CJ Henderson in his fight against cancer. Unfortunately, CJ ultimately lost that battle.

Now, the new press eSpec Books is running a Kickstarter for an anthology aimed at keeping the work and influence of CJ Henderson alive. CJ had a positive impact on the lives of authors and fans for decades, and the good folks at eSpec want to keep that impact going in the years to come. Please go over and check it out by clicking on the title or image above.

3. Bring Out Yer Dead

A couple of weeks ago, we brought you a board game project called Bring Out Yer Dead by Ginger Ale Games. The project has been going well, but with two weeks left, they're still about $20,000 short of their $35,000 goal. Please help get the word out about this one. It looks like a really cool game, and, if they reach $40,000, Silence in the Library gets to do an anthology in the Bring Out Yer Dead universe that goes out to all of their backers in eBook at no cost. You can check it out by clicking on the title or image above.

      Can I be a Wimpy Bystander instead? I'm not brave enough to be a Hero and I *hope* not bad enough to be a villain!

      I'm trying to decide about the add-on I pledged for -- the one I had in mind already came as an early pledger!
