Hi Everyone!

We hit 300 backers today! This is fantastic, and it looks like we're still going strong. Of course 300 backers is a very cool number so it's time for another SECRET STRETCH GOAL!

UNLOCKED: Secret Stretch Goal #4—Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia

Thanks to all of you who backed the project so far AND the awesome people over at BAEN BOOKS, every backer will receive a digital copy of MONSTER HUNTER INTERNATIONAL, the first book in Larry Correia's Monster Hunter series, in their reward package when we fund!

Now, considering the traffic we've seen coming from Larry's site, I'm betting a few of you know the book well, but for those of you that don't, you are in for a treat! Here's a synopsis of what's in store:

Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a fourteenth story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer.  

It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Officially secret, some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. On the other side are the people who kill monsters for a living. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.  

It's actually a pretty sweet gig, except for one little problem. An ancient entity known as the Cursed One has returned to settle a centuries old vendetta. Should the Cursed One succeed, it means the end of the world, and MHI is the only thing standing in his way. With the clock ticking towards Armageddon, Owen finds himself trapped between legions of undead minions, belligerent federal agents, a cryptic ghost who has taken up residence inside his head, and the cursed family of the woman he loves.  

Business is good . . .

Again, fantastic to have this awesome addition from Baen Books!

More Story Teasers

We have two more story teasers for you today! This time we bring you sneak previews of Larry Correia's story, THE BRIDGE, and Steven S. Long's story, THE TOWER OF THE GOLDEN GOD. A tease of Larry's story made perfect sense considering the secret stretch goal you unlocked, and Steve's story is the one the cover art is based on, so we definitely wanted to share that too!

THE BRIDGE by Larry Correia

When Lavro, one of the stoic, war-hardened race known as the drothmal, is tasked to prevent anyone from crossing a strategically important bridge in the Free Kingdoms, it seemed a simple enough job. But when a Kinjatsi swordsman on a quest appears and insists he must cross, it's the ultimate showdown between two ancient warrior traditions with honor as the prize.

THE TOWER OF THE GOLDEN GOD by Steven S. Long

After Torvin's crew of spicers is killed in an endrori ambush, the warrior finds himself alone in the green depths of the Zhamayen Jungle. Seeking shelter in an ancient, vine strangled ruin, Torvin stumbles upon wealth beyond his wildest dreams...and danger to match!"

The cover art gives you a hint of what comes next! Don't worry! Considering the twists and turns in Steve's story, the cover is definitely not a spoiler! 

That's it for tonight! Talk to you soon, and thanks for helping us to hit 300!

And as always, if you have any questions, let me know!
