Update #5

Clockwork Phoenix pins in progress (with video)

Comment

Today we made it almost to 65% funded, just past $3,200! Still a long way to go ... but not as long a way as yesterday! Whew.

This afternoon several folks chose to back the reward level that gets you one of Anita's Clockwork Phoenix pins. We decided to shoot a video so she could show what some of them will look like when they're finished.

    If you're this generous (and thank you!) in addition to everything at the $100 level, when the anthology is printed, we'll make a special copy just for you and get it signed by all the editors and authors. This is an epic undertaking, as CLOCKWORK PHOENIX always has international authors -- past contributors have hailed from the U.K., Australia, Switzerland, and Thailand -- and getting a copy signed by everyone involves shipping that copy to each contributor in turn and covering their costs for sending it on to the next writer until we've included them all. For this level of support, we'll do it happily. You will be listed as a supporter of Mythic Delirium Books in all of our future book publications.
