Update #54

Special Request For Reviews

Hey all:

Just a quick reminder that I am still offering signed bookplates to backers who review and send me links to Amazon and B&N and Goodreads reviews.  All three preferred. We have some great reviews but we could use more.

Meanwhile, since I know steampunk horror (my next project launching Feb. 28) doesn't appeal to some of you, please consider backing UNIDENTIFIED FUNNY OBJECTS 3, by ALex Shvartsman who was one of our authors. He is $1600 short with 7 hours to go. This is his third annual antho of humorous science fiction and fantasy and headliners include our own Mike Resnick and Robert Silverberg as well as Piers Anthony, Ellen Freisner, David Farland and more.

Regardless, thanks for helping make BEYOND THE SUN possible. IGMS and Analog reviews of BTS will be posting soon.

Update #53

Preditors & Editors Year's Best 2013 Awards Elligibility

Comment

Raygun Chronicles has been nominated in the Preditors and Editors Year's Best 2013 Poll for Best Anthology and Best Cover Art. Beyond The Sun is also elligible but has yet to be nominated. We'd love to have your vote, and please spread the word. You can also nominate and vote for other works, including individual stories included in the anthology. http://critters.org/predpoll/ 

If all our backers voted, it would be a nice prestige for our anthology and definitely help sales. But regardless, vote what you feel is right, of course. And thanks for your support.
