I have been a bit quiet lately, but there is news to report.
First: my company had our first fully-funded campaign on Indiegogo! Our revised project pitch for Kaiju-a-Gogo, our latest light strategy-action hybrid, wrapped last night. For the first time ever, a campaign pitch was 100% funded–116%, to be exact.
This was a much lower budget and the game will have a different release plan, but we made it, and we had the largest number of supporters we’ve ever had on Indiegogo–this is our third campaign there.
What this means in practical terms is that we will have to pay much less in overhead to Indiegogo for hosting the campaign, and more of your support will reach us. It also means that a 51-day struggle for crowd-funding dollars is over, and that I can direct my full attention to other struggles, including the completion of my Sword of the Stars Lore Book projects and the Clarion West Write-a-Thon.
For those who wish to support my independent fiction and science fiction publishing, I will be working on some personal projects when the current work cycle is complete. I am pushing toward print on the giant Lorebook and half-way through the production process of Black Section, so there will definitely be some lovely things to share in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, those who would like to encourage me in my writing can make a small tax-deductible donation to charity, and receive free new fiction from me. If you donate $20 or more, you get the chance to download a .pdf of the Premium Lore Book, which is nice for those with a low budget, or just people who like to have a digital copy of things.
Here’s my Clarion West Write-a-Thon page. Pledges are up to $455 this week, so my first free fiction is going out next week. I hope you all enjoy it.
