New Project!

I wanted to let you know that I've launched a new Kickstarter campaign!  

This time around, I'm hoping to publish a novella called Moving Forward: A Novella of Life After Zombies. The Kickstarter is active, so if you're interested you can swing by and pledge now!  

One Revolution--36 hours to go

My second Kickstarter project has met its funding goal!  I have 36 hours left to meet my secondary goal od $1500 so that I can get professional cover art.  If things get really crazy in the next day and a half, and I make it to $2000, I'm going to write 24 stories for the project instead of 12.  

There are 4 personalized stories left!  You can also get an ebook or a signed, personalized copy of the print book when it's finished.  

Check it out!  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1243520504/one-revolution-a-year-of-flash-fiction

New Project!

I appreciate that you all supported Bursts of Light, and I wanted to let you know that I just launched a new project.  It's a lot less lofty, but I think it'll be fun.  

One Revolution: A Year of Flash Fiction is pretty much just what it sounds like.  If my funding succeeds, I'll post a flash story on my website every month, then gather them into a book at the end of the year.  You can check it out here.  

Thanks again for your previous support!!

All I Need is a Miracle...

All I need is you!  

So, we've got a few days to raise over 80% of the total funds for this project.  As the title of this post implies, at this point I think it will take a miracle for Bursts of Light to actually happen.  

But it's not impossible.  

I appreciate all that you, my backers, have already done.  Each and every one of you are amazing, and I really appreciate the support and faith you've given me.  

And to anyone who wants to see this project succeed and hasn't pledged, this is your moment.  If you're holding back because you are planning on submitting a story and are worried about conflict of interest... well, no offence, but that seems a bit silly to me.  There's no pledge level that would let you buy your way into the book, or your could donate anonymously.  And if it doesn't happen, I won't be accepting any stories, let alone yours.  

If nothing else, this is the time to mention it to your friends again, or increase your donation if you can, or pester kickstarter or boing boing or any well-regarded internet personality who you think might get behind the project to mention it on their blog, facebook, or twitter. Maybe you'll have better luck than I have.  

Crossing the Streams!

Lex has launched a Kickstarter project of her own!  If you like my cover art, you should go check it out.  

She is looking for funding to do a themed set of paintings, one each month.  She's starting with birds, but I think you should know that if the birds work out, in the future, there could be robots.
