Update on the 'Death's White Hands' Kickstarter: End of the campaign, but not the end of the story.

So, the Kickstarter campaign is over, and sadly the target amount needed to make a physical copy of 'Death's White Hands' wasn't reached.  This was always a risk, and while it's disappointing for everybody who pledged and took part, we have a lot to be proud of here: in total, over £1000 was pledged to bring this book to life!  In addition, downloads of the free short stories 'The Corpseriders' and 'Mari's Dance' have continued steadily, and both remain 5 star rated on Amazon.  

So, to begin with, I would just like to say a huge and sincere thank you to everybody who pledged, and everybody who has sent me complimentary messages and encouragement since the Kickstarter began.  There can be no greater compliment for an author than knowing that people want to read your work- and believe me, 'Death's White Hands' will still be published.  As to the details of when and how... well, I will keep you all updated! 😉  

So, what happens now?
I am investigating other avenues for publication.  I still very much want to offer a physical copy of the book, but I also want to make sure that it is good quality and affordable, which means I'm not going to jump on to the first option that presents itself.  I am already researching some possibilities, and as soon as I have something to report, I will let you all know!  In the meantime, I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to help judge this year's Queer Sci-Fi flash fiction contest- so if you'd like to find out more, click here and take a look!  This year's theme is 'Impact', and we're excited to see what people come up with!

So again, huge thanks to you all for bringing the campaign this far- and here's to the future!  I have no doubt that great things are on the horizon.
