I was informed yesterday that the Kickstarter for the Heroes superhero anthology managed to squeak past the stretch goal (why do I keep wanting to say stretch mark?!?) that would include the short story I submitted, The Never Ending Battle, into the book.
Frankly, I wasn’t expecting the kickstarter to make enough beyond the original goal to include my story; it looked to me like a long shot. Part of me was expecting to throw the story onto the Free Reads page as soon as it was confirmed that it hadn’t made the goal. But then I got the email from Silence in the Library Publishing that informed me that they made it… with 3 hours to go in the campaign!
This will be the first short story of mine that will go into an anthology… which, I’m told, should be a great marketing boost for my other books. Hopefully there will be more (short stories for anthologies, and marketing boosts).
For now, though, it’s back to TV script writing: My earlier TV project is being looked at my another network; and my latest TV project breakdown has been OK’d by the producer, giving me the thumbs-up to start writing the first scripts.
