Right Angles to Fairyland Revision Commission  

Okay, lads, this is what I’m going to do with the Angles revisions:

This is a crowdfund thing that will probably run about six months, since I figure I’ll get the revisions done around the end of June. That’s my goal, anyway, so I’ll set a delivery deadline of July 1, 2011.

Here’s the catch: I may close the commission as early as April 14, 3 months from now, if I get it done by then. I may give 24 hours’ notice about it closing, or I may not. I’ll post about this monthly or so, in order to remind people, but I won’t ride it any harder than that. So if you want in, don’t faff about too long. :) (I know I’ve just put up the short stories commissions, too, which is why there’s a 3-month window on this–a bunch of people who may not have much spare cash have already bought in to the short stories, so I don’t want to double-tap them in January.)

Given that this is an actual novel, not just a novella or short stories, I’m going to go ahead and set a $15 buy-in, since my novels tend to be trade paperbacks with approximately that price tag.

And, because this is a revision project, I can for once give you a really decent teaser: Here are the first three unrevised chapters of RIGHT ANGLES TO FAIRYLAND. (Do bear in mind I wrote this almost ten years ago, and don’t judge me too harshly. :))

As usual, the finished story will be delivered via email as a PDF (and *maybe* in ebook format–leave a note in the Paypal transaction if there’s an e-format you’d like to have it delivered as) on or before July 1, 2011.

RIGHT ANGLES TO FAIRYLAND Revision Commission “You are an artist…” Version

This is it for crowdfunded projects from me in 2011*. I’ll mention both projects monthly/when I send out short stories, but yeah. This officially qualifies as Enough On My Plate. I’m ridiculously excited, though, because HOLY CRAP AFTER NEARLY A DECADE I GET TO FINISH ANGLES!!!!! *dances a jig*!

*unless Faith and I do that Joanne/Jane crossover story. o.o but that’ll be in the second half of the year if we do, and will go unmentioned until at least July :)

Paid! Odd. I couldn't pay for the Old Races project, but I could for this one. *shrugs*

Really? I wonder why. If you decide you wanna buy in to the ORP you can use one of these buttons and just leave me a note in the transaction. I read them. :)

Go. Finish and be fulfilled.

I find that I love the idea that the world will, from time to time, fund the completion of a dream.

*clicks the button*

Didn't bother to read the chapters yet. I've been reading your work for *mumbledymumbledy* now, and I know it's solid. <3

Just signed up, but PayPay didn't have a field for comments so. If you can do it easily a request for epub ebook format please?
