I just wanted to take a moment to let you know about a Kickstarter that you may be interested in. It's called Blackguards, and it's an anthology of thieves, assassins, mercenaries, and rogues.
I have a Riyria short story in this anthology and the line up is quite impressive:
- CAROL BERG, "Seeds"
- RICHARD LEE BYERS, "Troll Trouble"
- DAVID DALGLISH, "Take You Home"
- JAMES ENGE, "Thieves at the Gate"
- JOHN GWYNNE, "Better to Live than to Die"
- LIAN HEARN, "His Kikuta Hands"
- SNORRI KRISTJANSSON, "A Kingdom and a Horse"
- JOSEPH LALLO, "Seeking the Shadow"
- MARK LAWRENCE, "The Secret"
- TIM MARQUITZ, "A Taste of Agony"
- PETER ORULLIAN, "A Length of Cherrywood"
- CAT RAMBO, "The Subtler Art"
- LAURA RESNICK, "Friendship"
- MARK SMYLIE, "Manhunt"
- KENNY SOWARD, "Jancy's Justice"
- SHAWN SPEAKMAN, "The White Rose Thief"
- JON SPRUNK, "Sun and Steel"
- ANTON STROUT, "Scream"
- MICHAEL J. SULLIVAN, "Professional Integrity"
- DJANGO WEXLER, "First Kill"
- ANTHONY RYAN, "The Lord Collector" (novella)
- PAUL S. KEMP, "A Better Man"
- JEAN RABE, "Rashida"
It's already fully funded and hit a number of stretch goals including:
- Adding three authors: Anthony Ryan, Paul S. Kemp, & Jean Rabe
- Illustrations for each story
- Additional per word rate for the authors
- Open submissions for new authors to be included
- A poster of the cover
- T-shirt availability
- Blood coin upgrade
It's put out by Ragnarok Publishing which does a really nice job and has experience rolling out a prior successful Kickstarter. So if you are interested in stories of men and women who walk on the wrong side of the law, check it out.
