WE DID IT!
Woot! and also Woo! and also Whew!
(I'd say "group hug" but group hugs are vaguely disturbing)
You all, each and everyone of you, rock. And now I need to go write these stories so they wil rock you equally hard....
Miles to Go and Promises to Keep introduce Danny Hendrickson: Human mother, faun father, 100% Attitude. For the most part, he’s made his own way, first as a member of the NYPD and then – when they started looking too closely at non-humans in the force – as a private investigator, straddling the line between human and fatae (supernatural) in his job the way he does in his life
He has a good life, he has good friends, he makes a difference… But he also has a dangerous life. And sometimes – when you’re in the middle of magic - good friends aren’t enough.
Miles to Go: It's an ordinary day, another ordinary - for Danny - job, when he's approached by a young woman who has information he needs to solve a case. All she wants to do is help. When a life - or more - are on the line, it's hard to turn that down. But the cost of that information will change Danny's life...forever.
Promises to Keep: Following up on the events of MtG, Danny has a boring snoop-and-scoop infidelity case, the kind of thing that pays the bills and keeps everyone fed. But his new - and magical - partner sees something more in the scenario...and what she sees is deadly. To the client - and to them.
[these stories take place after the events of DRAGON JUSTICE (PSI #4) but stand alone]
Everyone who backs at the $15 or higher will also get "Dusted," a previously published (small press anthology) story featuring Danny.
And everyone who backs at $40 or higher gets TWO additional original short stories.
The $300 level now qualifies for cookies!
I see these stories as running between 30-35k words each. If we hit $10,000, the novellas will become novels (minimum 45,000 words each).
If we hit $20,000, there will be a print edition for all backers at $75 or more (other backers will have a chance to buy in at-cost)
Praise for the Cosa Nostradamus novels:
“…an entertaining, fast-paced thriller set in a world where cell phones and computers exist uneasily with magic, and a couple of engaging and highly talented rogues solve crimes while trying not to commit too many of their own.” – Locus
“Gilman’s deft plotting and first-class characters complement her agile blend of science and spell craft, and readers will love the Mythbusters-style fun of smart, sassy people solving mysteries through experimentation, failure, and blowing stuff up.” (Starred Review) - Publishers Weekly
