The August 15 release is being postponed until September 15. I'd hoped to get it out ahead of Gen Con for folks excited about the convention whether attending or not, but that just wasn't possible.

However, our schedule opens up this month and there will be no further delays.

Hey, folks! I'm trying for $50 to achieve double funding on my short story anthology project, Foreshadows of Another Life, before it closes just before midnight, in only another three hours and change.

All I need is five more people to pitch in $10 to answer a few questions in three sections about a make believe character and give me their favorite genre of the eleven offered. After that, I flesh out the character and write a story about him or her. All of the stories are tied together by the project's theme: at a singular point in the character's lives, they're faced with a situation where their choices alter their lives or the lives of others.

Gamers can use this as a way to get someone else to more fully develop their next character concept, whether for their use as a PC or to help a GM who'd like some robust villains, multi-faceted leaders, engaging prominent NPCs, or even just stories to mine for plot ideas or adventure springboards in the manner of our Stories to Inspire. If I know you want it for gaming purposes, I'll see to it that it has that bent. See the project page and updates for more information and examples.

Besides a story based on your character sketch, you get the PDF of the anthology, which currently will include 15 short stories and several bonus works. If I get double funding, that last $50 I'm aiming for, there will be twice the number of super flash fiction, flash fiction, short stories, and poems as the number actually pledged for by the backers. So if the final combined pledged number is 20, 40 items will be in the anthology.

Please consider backing this project at the $3 Read Only Version tier if you like the concept, but don't want to do the character sketch piece. All other tiers start at $5. It's easy. Just follow the link, start an account, click on the tier you want, and follow the directions for payment.

I appreciate any additional pledges and any sharing you choose to do.

Thanks for your support!

Eight hours and change remaining! We are shy just $50 (5 $10 pledges) to get to our Double the Fun goal for Foreshadows of Another Life.

Somehow missed the myriad posts about the project and don't know what I'm talking about? Here's the nutshell: Foreshadows of Another Life is a collaborative short story anthology whose stories star characters backers of certain levels have sketched out via author questions. I flesh out the character and then write flash fiction or a short story about the character in whatever genre the backer chooses. All the stories are tied together by the theme of the project: every character must make a choice that will alter his or her life or the life of another.

Love to read, but don't want to collaborate? That's okay! There's a Read Only Version tier so you can pledge just $3 and get the anthology. For those who want to help create characters, pledge $5 or more at the tier that appeals to you, and you get to do that and enjoy a PDF of the anthology, too.

How does this have anything to do with gaming? Easy! You can use a short story as part of your character's backstory. I can write with the idea that it's a piece about an emerging villain for your game. If requested, I'll go a route that translates well to the feel of game play in the manner of Stories to Inspire. Lots of options to make it a game worthy companion piece.

See the project page for more details and the updates section for current tallies for stories, including our stretch goals and surprise rewards.

But hurry! This has been part of +Kickstarter's #AllIn1 initiative, which means it was running for only one week, which ends at 11:59 p.m. EDT tonight!

My Foreshadows of Another Life backers have rallied to not only get the project funded, but to prompt some stretch goals. Want in? It's not too late! Use the stories as backgrounds for your next PC, Ally, or Extra Who Turns Important, or even as a catalyst for your next adventure! Just $3 gets you the anthology. Spring for a higher tier, and you get a story based on your character sketch(es), too.

Stretch Goal 1 Met

We've got about 15 hours left to this project campaign, and I am delighted that we've met the goal and some. I set a stretch goal of $180 (50% above my minimum funding threshold) with the idea that if we got there, I'd add 50% more items to the number of items for which folks have pledged. As the story pledges at either Flash Fiction or Character tiers grow, the number of extra items grows!

Bonus Material to Be Added

As of now, I've got folks having pledged for a combined total of 15 stories. I will add another seven or eight items from three categories: Super Flash Fiction, Flash Fiction, and Poems. Even if you don't want to add a story starring your character, that's a lot of entertainment - or game inspiration - for just $3!

Stretch Goal 2 Pending

If we pull in double the funding, $240 - just $60 more, in addition to what I do for the 50% goal, I'll add a correlating number of short stories for the other 50%. So, if we were to reach $240 with pledges for 20 stories (flash fiction or short stories), in addition to those, I'd write 10 items that would be in the Super Flash Fiction, Flash Fiction, and Poems categories and another 10 short stories. That would give backers an anthology of 30 short stories and 10 smaller works.

Thanks for your support!

Now that we've met the funding goal with Foreshadows of Another Life, I can reveal a stretch goal! Or two.

50% Extra - If we get to $180, I'll add 50% more stories in the form of three categories: Super Flash Fiction, Flash Fiction, and Poems. Those will be bits that fit the theme whether based on submitted sketches or not.

Double the Fun - If we double the funding goal, $240, I'll double the number items included Foreshadows of Another Life by doing the first extra 50% as described in 50% Extra and completing the other 50% extra with more short stories.
