GOOOOOAL! 

We've reached full funding, and you know what that means - time for stretch goals!

First up: Bonus swag!

Stretch Goal 1: $500
At $500, we'll give a Bag o' Swag to everyone who backs at $20 or more - no telling what it might be, but we guarantee it will be full of super-heroic goodness, and quite possibly rubber ducks.

* * *

Three years after the climactic battle at the Clermont Institution for the Criminally Insane, Chris Fairborne a.k.a. Crimsonstreak chases down escaped supervillains while working feverishly to reestablish world governments in the wake of collapse of the New World Common Wealth.  

His father, Colonel Chaos, sits in front of a Heroic Legion tribunal to answer for crimes against humanity. His mother, Miss Lightspeed, doesn’t seem herself following her unlikely resurrection. To make matters worse, Crimsonstreak encounters a being of pure speed not even he can outrun. Sounds like the perfect time for an alien invasion, an encounter with a group of snobbish space cops, and the mysterious return of a long-dead friend with an unbelievable secret. 

 War will strain friendships. A multiversal threat will test loyalties. And you will believe a man-bird can fly in II Crimsonstreak.

Risks and challenges

While there are risks in every project, we've already addressed most of them here! We're experienced book publishers, specializing in fantastika, and we're ready to bring this book to the world.

The manuscript is done, edited, and typeset; the cover art is in; the book is queued for production and WILL launch in October 2013 - we're just looking for pre-launch interest and a way to help pay for the initial printing costs.
