Update #1: Bonus Rewards!

We've gotten past our initial funding goal, and even surged past the $500 mark! To celebrate, we're going to give an extra Mystery Reward to everyone who's backed the project!

In addition, we're going to issue a challenge for the last few days of the pre-order period! If we can make it to $750 in pre-orders, we'll give everyone who pledges $20 or more a three-pack of posters - one poster of each book cover in the Extrahumans series!

* * *

In November 2011, Broken by Susan Jane Bigelow made waves in the science fiction and superhero worlds! In January 2012, the sequel, Fly Into Fire, ignited a whole new audience. Now, we're ready to release the explosive third book in the Extrahumans series: The Spark.

Help us get ready for the print run by pre-ordering the novel, and possibly getting yourself some fabulous bonuses in the process.

Deirdre Burns White clings desperately to her normal life. She has a job, a boyfriend and an apartment in the city of First Landing. She's made sure life is normal... because Dee is an extrahuman. She can make fire with her mind and she has the devil's luck, but because of that, she was once imprisoned and tortured by the ruthless Confederation military. All she wants is to bury the past and blend in.

When an old friend shows up bearing a letter and a command, though, Dee finds she can't run any longer. The ghosts of her past have come back to haunt her, even as the first cracks finally begin to show in the Confederation's smothering oppression.

Now First Landing is in a state of open, wild revolt, and Dee has to make a choice: to hide herself away, lost to guilt and regret, or to embrace her past and her dangerous powers to help save the people and the city she loves.

Dee could set the world on fire; all she needs is a spark.

All rewards include domestic shipping in the US. If you live outside the US - and yes, this includes Canada and Mexico - please add $10 to your pledge for international shipping for most tiers. If you do not add these funds, we will contact you after the completion of the project's run to make arrangements; otherwise, we will, unfortunately, be forced to cancel your pledge and refund your money - we're sorry to have to do this, but international shipping on books is expensive!
