TWO DAYS LEFT on the Kickstarter! If you were waiting for the best time to back…

…now would be it. TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol. 2 will be my collection of post-apocalyptic fantasy stories set in the aforementioned Fermi Resolution universe: it’ll feature old characters and new, and will include a madcap self-contained adventure from my upcoming Tom Vargas novel BANSHEE BEACH. The last forty-eight hours of a Kickstarter are in some ways the most important ones, because it’s now that we see what stretch goals will get fulfilled. Here are the most relevant ones:

Seven days left on the TALES OF THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol 2 Kickstarter, complete with a sudden moral quandary!

One that has been resolved with the correct (i.e. difficult choice). The short version is I got a message from another Kickstarter project that looks legitimate (I think), suggesting a cross-promotional thing. The problem? Well, two: I’m not 100% certain it’s legit, and even it is there’s not really any overlap between that project and mine. There’s nothing wrong with the concept, but I wouldn’t back it if I saw it*, and I would feel really bad if it turned out to be hinky after all. Which I guess answers the question all on its own, hey? If I’m not gonna back it, I shouldn’t talk it up unless I’m excited about the project and I just can’t afford to support it any other way.

The TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol 2 Kickstarter enters its last week!

Sort of, at least. The way Kickstarter counts days, it’s sometimes hard to tell. Tomorrow it’s officially seven days, so… close enough? Anyway, TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol 2 is very close to the ‘more sampler stories’ stretch goal! Tell your friends! Heck, tell your enemies if they’re good sports. And there’s still that elusive $6,000 stretch goal…

Less than $300 to go for the next stretch goal for TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol. 2 Kickstarter.

No exclamation point: I’m still too annoyed with Barnes & Noble to feel safe about shouting. My youngest wanted to know why I was snarling obscenities at my computer. Since the answer was, Because I forgot you were there*, perhaps I should be a little less vehement for a while.

Anyway, the TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol. 2 Kickstarter is still going on, with a dozen days to go. We’re close to getting some more sampler stories, and after that; some sampler art. And man, but the urge to push out the exclamation points is stronger than I expected. It’s like a drug, man. A loud, shouty drug.

New stretch goal for TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION: Digital merch art!

This is a two-birds, one-stone situation: I’ve gotten Shaenon Garrity (book cover artist for FROZEN DREAMS and TINSEL RAIN, and all-round swell artist) to do some Fermi Resolution-themed art. I’ve been provided with a piece that can be handily broken up into a bookmark, bookplate, and refrigerator magnet.

So I’ve updated the TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol 2 Kickstarter! There’s a new $1,600 stretch goal: at that point, everyone who backs at the $5 level or above will get a digital copy of the art, already formatted for a 3×1 bookmark, 2×2 sticker or magnet, and 3×2 bookplate.

Will there be physical versions of these in the future? Yes! Will they be part of the Kickstarter? …I dunno. Depends on how much money I make from it. So back it today!

First stretch goal reached in TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION 2 Kickstarter!

In just over a week, too.

I’ve already picked the next stretch goal for the TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION 2 Kickstarter:

  • $2,000: More sampler stories! At this point, the sampler will be five Fermi Resolution stories, including two ones exclusive to this sampler. It will be very close to a short episodic novel at that point, as all five stories will be set in the Falling Walls of Lunacy Marsh/Asenath Fermi Resolution horror sub-series. The Moon is not a nice place in a magical apocalypse. With these stories, you’ll get to see just how much.

Back it today!

Now is the time to back TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol. 2!

It’s in a good spot to be backed: TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Vol. 2 has been funded, and we are a mere seventy five bucks from the first stretch goal. We’re also a mere four grand away from me being able to get BANSHEE BEACH out the door as soon as it’s ready to go, so there’s short- and long-term goals to work towards. This is a marvelous thing! Back the Kickstarter today!

TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Volume 2 has funded in 11 hours, 57 minutes!

Mind you, I wasn’t worried in the slightest. I ran the numbers, and I was confident that I had a clear-eyed view of the situation and was pretty sure that I could reach the Kickstarter goals. I totally wasn’t spending the day in a habitual state of imposter’s syndrome. The very idea that I would is absurd!

ABSURD!

…Seriously: thanks to everybody who has pledged to TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION Volume 2, and everybody who will. I can do the stuff that I do because of the stuff that you do. I try not to forget that.
