Yesterday, with more than 30 hours left to go until the clock runs out, my friend Michael Jan Friedman’s crowd-funding effort for his new anthology project, Pangaea, hit and surpassed its target of raising $8,000.
That means that Mike and the cast of rogue word pushers he’s assembled will be able to write all-new stories set in the world he’s created. One world, one continent, 14 stories.
286 backers (as I write this), and over $8,300.
So, if you’re reading this and you’re a backer? THANK YOU. This project would not be possible without your pledge and your support. Even if you weren’t able to contribute but still spread the word and boosted the signal, we thank you for that, as well. It all helped to make this happen.
If you read these updates and you thought it better to hold off and see if this thing had any legs, well HEY! There’s still time t get on the bandwagon. The more, the merrier, and all that! We’ve still got one full day to go to secure additional funding, all of which will be funneled toward the project, which includes (hopefully) unlocking a few stretch goals.
As this is the first time I’ve been involved as a contributor to a project that’s receiving Kickstarter funding, I’m rather excited about the whole thing. I guess Kevin and I should probably get together at some point to figure out what we’re gonna write about.
“So, you’re just gonna write about Pangaea? That’s the plan?”
“That’s the plan!”
“What are you gonna write about?”
And whoa! Don’t forget that if you took advantage of one of the add-on package deals Mike offered a few days ago, you could be among the first to get a nice shiny copy of “Texas Pride,” a companion piece to my two Last World War novels. I’ll likely make it available for sale on various eBook formats later this year, but Pangaea backers will get it first. You can read all about that by clicking right here.
Thanks again to everyone who helped to make this possible. It’s going to be fun. See you on Pangaea!
