The Weird Wild West Needs Homesteaders!


Hey y’all!  I hope the holidays treated everyone well, and that you were fortunate enough to spend at least some of the time with people you like who like you back!

I’m back again to talk about our Kickstarter.  We’re pleased that so many folks believe in us enough to pledge a little money, and we hope that we reach our goal so that we can bring you all some incredible stories.  The first volume will feature thrilling tales by R S Belcher, Tonia Brown, Diana Pharaoh Francis, John Hartness, Gail Martin, James Tuck, Jonathan Maberry and me.  But we’ll also have space for some of you!

If we reach our initial funding goal, we’ll offer up four open submission spots.  We’re very excited to see what you all can imagine, but it will only happen if we reach that goal.  You can help us along.  Pledge if you can, but also share the link on your social media.  Talk other people into pledging and sharing, too!  The more noise we make, the likelier we are to hit that goal!

In order to help it along, we’ve started a contest.  If we can get 200 backers by New Year’s Day, everyone who pledges at the $5 level (or higher) will receive a bonus DRM-free Deadly Curiosities novella from Gail Martin, AND a digital deed to your very own weird western homestead!  How cool would that be?

We’ve also added a pledge level for those of you who love your fur babies as much as your human ones…Tonia Brown, author of the web serial Railroad!, will name characters in her story after your pets!  It’s a neat offer, and a wonderful way to immortalize your beloved in fiction.

Tonight, editor Emily Leverett will be interviewed on Talk of the Tavern, so tune in at 9 pm on Wight Party Radio or Riel Radio (or download it later from iTunes and Stitcher.)  Last Monday, Emily, Margaret, Danielle and I were guests on the show together, and it was a blast.  You can still listen to that episode if you missed it – just visit the TofT site.
