My latest short story collection, Xenowealth: A Collection, now live on Kickstarter

Wow, the last time I did this was well over two years ago. My crowd funding fu might be a little rusty. But here we go:

I’m using Kickstarter to take pre-orders and crowdfund my latest short story collection, which will be coming out as an eBook, paperback, and hardcover. And this is going to be something special to me, because it’s the collection of all the Xenowealth stories.

The working title as I planned this out and waited for the rights to all arrive was ‘Pepper Unleashed.’ So if you like the character, you might enjoy this…

Here are the deets:

In early 2006 my novel Crystal Rain launched the first book in the Xenowealth series. It was followed up by Ragamuffin in 2007, which was a Nebula award nominee, and Sly Mongoose. I get a lot of mail about these books, and to satisfy reader requests, turned to crowdfunding to create The Apocalypse Ocean, the fourth book in the Xenowealth series.

The books will be relaunching this 2015. In January, Crystal Rain will come out in a trade paperback format from Tor Books, with other books to follow. To celebrate the relaunch, I set out to answer another popular fan request: combine all the short stories I’ve written in the Xenowealth worlds into a single collection.

If you’ve wanted all your Pepper stories bound into one volume: here’s your chance.

And there will even be some stories you may not have encountered…

There are different pledge levels, from $5 all the way on up, for things like eBooks and paperbacks and hardcovers. There should be something for everyone.

And there are stretch goals. Lots of them.

Go check out the Kickstarter here.
