ROBOT DINOSAURS! Kickstarter is live!

What is good in life? ROBOT DINOSAURS!

I’m delighted to announce the official launch of a Kickstarter to fund a summer of robot dinosaur fiction by a fantastic line-up of authors and artists!

So what is this project?

Robot Dinosaur Fiction! is a virtual anthology: each Friday from May through August, 2018, a new flash fiction story will be published online and free to read. When the summer wraps up, all the stories will be collected in an anthology, with an exclusive bonus story by Vina Jie-Min Prasad!

So far we have an all-star lineup of authors:

Ada Hoffmann
Alexis A. Hunter
Alina Sichevaya
Darcie Little Badger
Elsa Sjunneson-Henry
Ginger Weil
Hayley Stone
John Wiswell
Karen Osborne
Katie Spina
Katy Kania
Khaalidah Muhammad-Ali
M Raoulee
Mina Li
Morgan Swim
Naru Dames Sundar
Nibedita Sen
Osahon Ize-Iyamu
Rachael K. Jones

and artists such as:

If we hit stretch goals on the Kickstarter, we will also be opening to general submissions for September and October (and maybe beyond)! 😀

There are all sorts of cool rewards for backers: e-book and print book copies of the anthology, postcards with awesome ROBOT DINOSAURS! artwork, exclusive bundles of books, hand-made plushies, and more.

Please check it out and help us spread the word. The world is always better with more robot dinosaurs! RAWR!
