About this project

FantastiCon is a quirky, fun, playful mystery set a fictional SciFi and Fantasy convention.  Allison Cavanaugh is there for a weekend of fan girl fun and instead spends nearly every moment trying to stay ahead of her stalker.  It is a complete novel, and fully written.  Already it has a 4 out of 5 star average on Amazon.Com.  Here's what some are saying:

"As someone who has attended a number of science fiction conventions, FantastiCon was a great setting and very realistic. Many aspects of the novel describe the quirky world of cons and con goers well. ...

Overall I would rate FantastiCon a solid four stars. It's easy to read and filled with fun quirky characters. The mystery keeps you moving and the ending is surprising. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone."

"I have never been to a convention of the kind that Osterman portrays in his novel, but that did not make this book any less enjoyable to read. Osterman uses cultural references that even the least geeky of "Muggles" will find amusing. All in all, this book is a fun read and I highly recommend it."

What it needs most, now, is a professional copy editing to get those last pesky typos and lost words that keep it from being a true 5-star geek classic.

Mr. Osterman has been in contact with editors and has a contract ready to sign for the work.  All he needs now is your support to get the job done and start the new Con season off with must-read.

Each backer will receive a signed copy of FantastiCon upon completion of the final editing process. As the primary prose is completed Mr. Osterman does not foresee any risks, if funded, in completing this project.
