Week 2 Update and New Reward Levels!

Posted by Thea James & Ana Grilo (Creator)

Hello everybody! It's the start of week 2 and we have added a few rewards at different levels - check them out:

$65 - The Hunting Monsters Commemorative Reward  

Three years ago, we launched our publishing arm with the first season of short stories. Our debut story was Hunting Monsters by S.L. Huang, a queer retelling of Little Red Riding Hood meets Beauty and the Beast. We loved that story so much - and so did readers - we acquired a sequel for 2015: Fighting Demons. To celebrate Hunting Monsters' third anniversary, we came up with a reward that includes the two stories (Hunting Monsters and Fighting Demons), the anthology collecting the upcoming "Awakenings" season plus a framed art print of the gorgeous cover art from Hunting Monsters (only 30 available!) :

$55 - Awakenings + Hurricane Heels in Print   

Another reward level is a different way of getting the "Awakenings" anthology in print along with the print edition of our magical girls series "Hurricane Heels" by Isabel Yap. 

$45 - Awakenings in Print + Other Anthologies

A change to get the "Awakenings" anthology in print and also ALL of the other anthologies of short stories we published before. 

$35 - Quarterly Almanac Pack

We published four quarterly almanacs - each included original short stories, reprints, reviews and awesome essays from SFF and YA luminaries. Exactly the type of content we are looking to fund with this Kickstarter.

We are very close to the 1/3 mark - let's do this thing!

      Does the $35 Almanac tier also include the Awakenings collection in ePub format?
