Lockdown sale from eSpec Books, and Kickstarter progress

To give folks more stuff to read while stuck at home, eSpec Books is putting all its backlist e-books on sale for only $0.99 apiece. This includes my story collection Among the Wild Cybers and the anthology Footprints in the Stars, as well as a bunch of books by numerous other authors, including my fellow Star Trek veteran and current Kickstarter partner Keith R.A. DeCandido.

Meanwhile, since my last Kickstarter post 3 days ago, we’ve raised nearly $600 more and unlocked both bonus stories “Slow and Steady” and “Child in the Wood.” Another $365 will unlock Keith’s “Alien Invasion of Earth!” — and we’re only $665 away from making Arachne’s Exile a reality and completing the duology! Just a reminder, the Arachne books were originally one really long novel, until I realized it worked better as two. While the story naturally breaks down into two distinct stages, they’re still two halves of a greater whole, with the second book expanding the narrative to a much grander scope. If we get Exile funded in this campaign, we can hopefully get both books out reasonably close together.

 

The bonuses have been rearranged somewhat since my previous reports, so the threshold for unlocking what could be my fourth piece of original fiction in this Kickstarter, the Arachne’s Crime prequel story “Comfort Zones,” is down to $3600, only $1265 away now, with 24 days left in the campaign. That’s eminently reachable, right? Other bonuses include short fiction collections by Christopher Burke and Jeff Young, and there’s room for even more goodies to be added if we get beyond $4000. There’s also one more chance for a donor of $120 or more to get a background character named after them in Arachne’s Crime; one lucky backer has already earned this!
