I’m very pleased to report that Strange Horizons has bought my story, “Hear the Enemy, My Daughter”. SH is just about the perfect market for this piece. The first draft was written with the support of my Kickstarter project. (Yes, it takes me a long time to move from first […]
Joyously I spread the word that time_shark has launched his Kickstarter project for Clockwork Phoenix 4! Mike’s own LJ post about it is here.
You can read my weird little story “The Mannequin’s Itch” for free on The Pedestal Magazine. There’s also an MP3 of me reading the story aloud. This is one of the stories I wrote pursuant to my Kickstarter project in 2010.
Yeah, I know, I haven’t done a monthly progress report since February. I’d like to claim that I didn’t have time because of All the Writing I was doing, but actually I was ashamed that I was getting so little done. (I actually predicted this in my report for February, […]

With only one week to go, my Kickstarter project is 60% funded. I’m amazed and grateful. But: the project gets nothing at all unless the entire amount is pledged, and there’s $1,011.22 to go. If you can post a link to the project, that would be a great help.
With 19 days left to go, we are 53% funded, which is pretty nearly on track. I’m thrilled and amazed that there’s been so much support. This is so neat. Still, we have $1,188 to go, and the project gets nothing at all unless the goal is reached. (Some people have asked me […]
With 30 days to go, my Kickstarter project is 50% funded!
So I’ve initiated a Kickstarter funding experiment. Whether it works or not, I had a blast putting it together — it’s the cheesiest, most gimmicky thing I could dream up. (And making the video was a hoot!) If the project or the presentation inspires or amuses you, would you consider […]
