A Great Honor
Hello my Pride!
If you haven't seen yet on Twitter or Facebook, it gives me great pleasure to announce that the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) has taken notice of our campaign for By the Silver Wind! (!!!!!!!)
As part of their new initiative to support crowd funding projects that are in keeping with their mission statement, they will be featuring our project on their blog, and have pledged to support the campaign (and you bet they got a Shard plushie..!).
I'm so very thrilled and proud to be considered an example --and to share the honor with you! Your enthusiasm and unwavering support help me to keep on writing, putting out books, and keep coming up with fun new ideas for the Pride to keep this dream going.
So thank you for that. PARTY!
More Gryfon Feathers
The word in the wind is that ravens have gathered another bushel of feathers for artist Lindsay Adams. Those of you who have already pledged for "a set" will still receive a set, artfully chosen by character who will give you a nice variety. Even better, Lindsay will be livestreaming some of her painting process this Saturday evening at 8:00pm EST. That's 6:00 Mountain time. That means you get to watch her while she works!
Talons on the Ground
Friends, we are almost to the halfway mark. We blew the campaign out of the water on Day One and it's only going to get better. I urge you to tell your friends and family (they should know about gryfons, shouldn't they? Shouldn't everyone?)
To that end, I've created a tear-sheet that can be posted on community bulletin boards, should you wish to download, print, and post! Download here.
And, I'm bringing back the Member of the Pride icons so you can proudly show off your Pride status, as well as give people a chance to ask you what the heck the Gryfon Pride is. Feel free to download and use on your Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat.... etc. (I don't know why the sizes are wonky? They should all work!)
Finally, I'll be updating again next week as far as the graphic novel teaser and the chat-with-Jess/Gryfon Party gathering!
Be well, fly high, and walk proud, knowing you are a member of the illustrious Gryfon Pride!
