Good morning, folks! We have 14 days left on the Birthright Kickstarter, and we’re at 56% funding. That’s awesome! I just posted a new update over there, and backers should have that in your email soon. If you’re not a backer yet, then you can check it out at this link.
And in case you missed it last week, there are three (3!) new tiers of rewards for backers. For $5, you can get an in-universe, exclusive short story. For $15, you get a link to your blog or project in the acknowledgements, and for $65, you can be a beta reader for Book 2 Lineage!
Anyway, enough of that. What else is going on? Well,the blog tour for Birthright is still going strong. I have a few more posts waiting in the queue to get out there, but over the past week or so, even more folks have hosted my ramblings. If you’re feeling generous, give them a click and show your support for them.
They’re good people.
- Over at Once Upon a Time, Naithin and Hannah were kind enough to let me explain what I mean when I say that Birthright is a cross-genre book.
- Void at A Green Mushroom Appears hosted my reflections on pop culture and media influences in Birthright.
- Ardwulf opend his lair to me so that I could write about the differences between storytelling in games and books. (To be completely open, I do favor this article a bit because it let me write one of my favorite sentences ever: “The narrative hook is supposed to sink into your brainyparts and keelhaul you along behind the storyboat.”
- Phaethon let me get all meta at Couch Campus when I started talking about my experience in making your Kickstarter project stand out above the crowd.
And, like I said, there are a couple more coming down the chute soon. So keep an eye out. If you’re interested in hosting a posting (tee hee!) or an author interview or anything else whatsoever, please let me know.
And here’s my bit of even-more-shameless self-promotion: Be sure to check out Birthright (The Technomage Archive, Book 1) on Kickstarter! It’s cross-genre scifi/fantasy awesomeness that is “more fun than feeding chicken wings to dinosaurs,” according to one reader. Seriously. I can’t make this stuff up!
