I can’t wait to see the incredible illustrations James is going to do for the stories in the book, but that means first we have to fund interior illustrations! If you haven’t backed the project yet, please do so now, so you can snag exclusive rewards like downloadable wallpapers and the exclusive cover. If you have backed the anthology, THANK YOU, now please tell your friends! Everybody wins if we hit our stretch goals.
And don’t forget, if we make it to our third stretch goal YOU can submit a story for Volume 2, because that volume will be open to submissions from anyone.
*I reserve the right to rearrange this TOC before the book is printed. Editor’s prerogative! Also, it’s possible that some of the titles may change between now and printing. But the stories will be same, I promise.
