So I’m doing a thing, because I work well under pressure, and I have a Critical Thesis to write this semester and not enough pressure to cook with apparently!
This summer and fall I’m using my expertise in indie publishing to put together an anthology of Halloween-themed short stories written by YA authors. Why? Because Halloween (the most important holiday of the year) deserves to be celebrated in all possible ways, and reading a collection of Halloween-themed stories is a pretty great place to start! After all, what goes better with your October mood than a cozy Halloween story?
Even better: 50% of the proceeds from this publication will be donated to Girls Not Brides, a “global partnership of more than 700 civil society organisations from over 90 countries committed to ending child marriage and enabling girls to fulfil their potential.”
Because I’m just poor confused millennial lass, I don’t have the funds up front to pay the authors for their hard work. BUT AUTHORS DESERVE TO GET PAID, so I’ve put together a Kickstarter campaign where you can, if you so choose, support the anthology with a few dollars, a pre-order, or just spreading the word. When you support the campaign, you can receive:
- Our undying thanks!
- A free Halloween costume suggestion
- 1 of 4 (or all 4) original “I Support Halloween” mini buttons
- A pre-ordered eBook copy
- A pre-ordered print copy
- Or even YOUR NAME forever emblazoned in the Acknowledgements section of the book!
I hope you’ll take the time to check out the campaign! And now, I leave you with my favorite Halloween .gif (from “Over the Garden Wall”):
