And now we need YOUR help
Clan Destine Press has launched a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo to pay this
amazing bunch of genre writers for their rollicking, action-packed adventure tales.
[Not just the five mentioned here, but the other 26 - and counting.]
It's often the sad reality that contributors to an anthology get a token fee
(sometimes as little as $30 and a copy of the book)
for their stories, no matter the length.
We offered 5 cents a word, for stories from 5000 to 15,000 words.
Most of our authors have delivered rollicking adventures tales in the 10-12,000-word range.
That's a lot of 5 cent pieces for a fabulous number of words.
Clan Destine Press, as usual, is responsible for all production costs (editing, design and printing),
but in order to pay our authors what they deserve we need your help.
For anyone who doesn't know how crowding funding works, the idea is to encourage
the readers of the world - especially fans of the contributing writers - to help fund the project.
Our Indiegogo campaign offers a variety of incentives to encourage lovers of genre fiction to get behind our authors
and help the anthology on the road to high adventure.
All sorts of goodies are on offer for different levels of financial support.
There are eBooks, paperbacks, notebooks and tote bags.
Some of our And Then... authors have donated their time to give writing critiques to emerging (or established) writers.
If you're a reader this is a great present to give a writer.
And of course there is the anthology itself.
By contributing early, you can score the first paperback copies of the now-TWO volume adventure anthology And Then...
By contributing enough you can score the limited edition hardback double volume of
And Then...the Great Big Book(s) of Awesome Adventures Tales.
You can contribute any amount - from $2 to $1000 - depending on what offer takes your fancy.

Oh, and another way to help, of course, is to share our campaign with all the lovers of genre fiction you know.
