UFO Kickstarter Campaign

You may recall this announcement that I have an upcoming humorous short story about a down-on-his-luck vampire who is hired by a bunch of ignorant townsfolk to deal with their supernatural problems.

Well, now's your chance to pre-order the book and get lots of cool extras.

Alex Shvartzman, the editor of Unidentified Flying Objects just put up a Kickstarter campaign. You can preorder the book and get things like: free stories, a hardback copy of the book, editorial feedback on one of your own writing projects, dinner with the editor or a writing workshop with the editor, all depending on how much you pledge.

UFO has a story from Mike Resnick (one of the biggest award winners in the science fiction community) and stories from Nebula and Hugo award winning authors. And also me.

Anyway, check it out, and throw a couple of bucks into the campaign.

AND, if you would like to get a sneak preview of the stories, check out this story by Nebula Award nominated author Jake Kerr. It's a story about the Twitter feed on the day that aliens come to destroy the entire Earth (except for Canada).
