One week in with this crowd-funding experience with 3RD AND STARLIGHT, and it is very interesting. For a bunch of relatively unknown authors, albeit all WOTF winning graduates or aspirants, Hugo and Aurealis nominees, Aurealis award and Jim Baen Short Story award winners et. al., to receive close to $1000 in backer support (38% of our goal!) in one week is stunning. And I've been humbled by the "established" authors and editors who've help promote and donated to the project (more on these in DEC during the last week Kickstarter push). What an amazing community is this one of authors, editors, and artists! After decades of practicing medicine and dealing with the competition between hospitals, insurance companies, and even fellow physicians, I cannot express how truly great our creative community is.
Anyway, new author mini-interview with our own K. L. Schwengel: STOP DRAGON MY HEART AROUND!
And a free add-on gift to our 3RD AND STARLIGHT print edition supporters by cover artist Lou Harper: LOOK AT THE PRETTY BIRDIE! >GAWP!<
Truly, what an experience this project has been and continues to be. Spread The Word!
