The first Cosa Nostradamus novels were published traditionally. My publisher wanted me to work on the Portals duology next, which was fine by me….But I _really_ wanted to tell Danny’s story, too. I mean, come on: a half-faun PI looking for love in all the wrong places… who finds both love and trouble in the VERY wrong place? And did I mention the storm-seer? Or the demons?
But these stories only happen if we hit goal in the next 19 days! Are you in? Do I have to make Puppy Eyes at you? Do I have to send Danny over to make Puppy Eyes at you?
(’cause the bastard’s making ‘em at me, right now, and he’s getting insistent)
$9 gets you two (2!) novellas. $15 gets you two novellas, plus another short story. $40 gets you two novellas AND two stories, plus a micro-story thank you letter. And so on, more bonuses being added, all the way up to my swiftly-becoming-famous ginger shortbread cookies at the $500 level.
[goal, BTW, is the $ it would take for me to be able to take time out to write and produce these two novellas, incl editing, typesetting, and cover design.]
