Weekly Update – May 22, 2018

Art by Marty Kulma

Check it out! New England Speculative Writers has dropped the cover art for The Final Summons anthology! And with this announcement came a small flurry of new pledges to the Kickstarter campaign, and we are now within reach of our first stretch goal of $1,475 to cover compensation for our editor.

You still have nearly a month left to support the campaign and pre-order the book, which will feature my short story The Going Rate for Penance and 13 other fantasy, horror, and science fiction tales from New England-area authors.

By backing this project on Kickstarter, you can pre-order your e-book copy now for $5 or a print edition for $25 — which also includes a copy of the e-book! For a larger contribution you can have a copy donated to your local library. Visit the project’s official Kickstarter page and learn more about the authors, their stories, and what you get for pledges as little as $2 and as large as $50.

WRITING PROJECTS

Well-Behaved Women: At last, draft one of book two is DONE! I’ve put it aside for a while and have moved on to draft one of book three. Hopefully it’ll take me less than the six months book two took to finish it.

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – book four: First draft in progress.

Action Figures – Issue EightCrawling from the Wreckage: Fourth draft written. Tentatively scheduled for a February/March 2019 release.

Action Figures – Issue Nine: Rough plotting in progress.

Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins (audiobook): Review completed, final editing in progress.
