Time for a short break from costumes for something peripherally related.
Lots of big doings for Silence in the Library Publishing! The first thing is fellow costumer Janine Spendlove's Kickstarter for her fantasy trilogy, War of the Seasons. In the interest of full disclosure, I was a beta reader on all three books (that's right, I've already read the unreleased 3rd book!) and she's one of my best friends, and I just so thrilled for her success. Her trilogy and all the associated short stories are so great.
If you haven't read the first two books - this Kickstarter is your chance to get all three books in either paper or e-book. ($5 gets you the e-book for the 3rd bok, $15 gets you the whole trilogy on e-book! And both of those contributions will get you cool free stretch goal stuff. And there are some awesome stretch goals, which include stories set in the War of the Seasons world by authors like Mike Stackpole, Aaron Allston, Cleolinda Jones, and ME! Yay!
Please check it out (and tell all your friends):
After War of the Seasons, in December 2013-January 2014, we'll be doing a Kickstarter for a SF/Fantasy anthology called Athena's Daughters. This anthology features stories written by women about strong female protagonists, with artwork by a woman - and edited by Jean Rabe. We're really excited for it. We have a lot of great authors lined up including Mary Robinette Kowal, Sherwood Smith, Gail Z. Martin, Janine Spendlove, and rising talents like Melanie Clegg, Ginger Breo, Conley Lyons. And me! I'll post more on this as we get closer. I've read a few of the stories submitted already and they're fantastic.
