As of Friday, January 3, 2014, the Kickstarter for Athena’s Daughters has passed the $31k mark, meaning Joe Corroney’s cool original cover for Apollo’s Daughters is a go!
Thanks to everyone who chipped in. I’m really looking forward to writing my story for this anthology.
With just one week left to go before the end of its Kickstarter funding push, the Athena’s Daughters anthology has been wildly successful. Not only has it far exceeded its basic goal and many of its stretch goals — including the commissioning of a companion volume, Apollo’s Daughters, in which male authors will spin tales of strong female main characters — it is now within less than $700 of achieving its next stretch goal: an original cover for Apollo’s Daughters by renowned Star Wars artist Joe Corroney, colored by Brian Miller.
This would be a major coup for the anthology, so please consider chipping in: for just $5, you can score a whole lot of awesome goodies. Even if you’re only contributing your $5 now, you still get numerous other incentives unlocked by the previous stretch goals. There is no downside: in fact, this might be one of the best bargains you’ll ever get.
Please chip in and help us get over just one more hurdle so that Joe Corroney can grace our words with an epic illustration that does them justice.
Meanwhile, in other news … HAPPY NEW YEAR!
