Strange California; It’s Funded!

Strange California is the themed anthology (can you guess the theme? Can you?) that accepted a story of mine earlier in the year. Payment and publication were all dependent on a Kickstarter campaign, and getting enough backers.  The Kickstarter ends on October 27, 2017.

We reached the minimum funding goal on October 25.

I was thrilled — I still am thrilled. The publishers pay professional rates and half the anthology will be stories solicited from established writers, in come case award-winning writers; Seanan MaGuire, Nick Mamatas, Juliette Wade and E Catherine Tobler to name some. So a story of mine will be in a book with stories by them.

I also felt even better about my story being accepted when I realized that half the table of contents was solicited manuscripts.

I want to talk more about this, especially about the power of both market research and networking. (I get no credit for research on this sale; a friend told me about the antho: a triumph of networking.) Right now though I just want to bask in the excitement. And say once again to all of you who passed the word along or backed the project, THANK YOU!

    Hey, Chad! I haven’t heard from you in a while! I hope things are going well… or at least okay.

    I just popped by your blog and saw that you are reviewing THE ALEXANDRIA QUARTET. I’ll have to go read all your remarks.

    Things are going great, thank you. I’ve just been internet silent for… a long time. But all is well.
