I’m not. But if I was…  

Finishing the last story for the NO DOMINION Kickstarter campaign. I am of course inevitably thinking of running another one, though that way lies madness. I’m not running one, mind you. Not right now.

But if I was…

It would probably be KISS OF ANGELS, the Grace O’Malley story from the Old Races universe, which I (perhaps foolishly) believe would be novella-length.

If I was going to do this (and I’m not), what I learned from the last campaign is that short stories are king: as rewards they were vastly more popular than anything else I proposed. So the basic buy-in would get you the novella and every $5 thereafter would probably get you another short story, up to 6.

I would do a limited edition print run again. And I suppose if the campaign reached some genuinely stupendous amount of money, the Super Big Reward might be a full-length Old Races novel. Which might be what KISS OF ANGELS is anyway, mind you, I donno, so it might end up being somebody else’s novella-length (20-40K) story and Grace’s novel.

If I do this again there’ll be a wordcount associated with the reward levels this time, that’s for sure. :) And I’m not doing it!

But if I was, damn, wouldn’t Tara O’Shea’s KISS OF ANGELS cover be *beautiful*? (She’s the one who’s done the ORSSP covers…:))

though that way lies madness

Out of simple curiosity, then - for I am in no wise thinking of it myself: I know all my readers by name, and I have a terrible memory for names - wherein lies the madness? What about the process drives you crazy?

That way lies madness because I have more than enough on my plate already, rather than the process being maddening!

I would be delighted if you did this...

I've just received an email from Amazon telling me I've already funded this Kickstarter. It may be from the future, but I can wait... :)

I would have ridiculous amounts of fun designing a cover with Gráinne.
