A Small Fiction is what happens when a writer wants to tell a hundred stories but doesn’t have the time to write a hundred books. Instead, he writes the seeds of them and casts them to the wind.
Every story in the collection is distinct, and while some play on common themes each story stands on its own. Through the genre lenses of science fiction, fantasy, contemporary fiction, folklore, and humor each of these small fictions is a peep-hole that reveals a bigger story.
Not long now!
We have a cover!
Gosh it's been a long few months, and now everything is happening. Like the rollercoaster creeping up to the top of the first big drop, and now we're looking over the edge at the ups and downs to come, and picking up speed.
The book is going to print in just a couple short weeks. People will still be able to buy the book through Unbound after that date (and always), but…
It's 2018! This is the year the book arrives! Are you excited? We're excited.
November and December found us hard at work. As the days grew shorter and colder, we packed each hour tighter.
We spent our holidays talking about all the wrapped packages under the trees that might have our book in them next year. We laid out pages. We shuffled and reshuffled. We wrote and we drew, and we rewrote…
We did it! We really did it! Together we made this book a reality, raised enough pre-orders to send the book to print, and because of your support it's going to exist. Like really exist, in physical form, and every one of you helped us get there. We made it!
So. Now what?
That's a good question. Here's what happens next:
All the gears of publication start churning. Now that the book has been…
As of today there are less than 30 days left to reach our funding total to 100% so this book can go to print. 30 days to raise 19% of the total, and if we can make it, everyone gets a beautiful book! It all comes down to these last few weeks.
It'll be a sprint to the finish to be sure, so if you know anyone who's been on the fence about getting the book, or who wants a copy but hasn't gotten around…
Barely two weeks ago ago we opened pre-orders for the first A Small Fiction book. In that time, over one hundred people have already stepped forward to support A Small Fiction and claim a copy of their own, raising over a third of the printing costs of the book. That's you guys. You did that!
A third, in just fourteen days, thanks to you. That's pretty incredible for just a hundred people. We picture…
A Small Fiction has had a long and weird journey. It started as a private notebook in an office in 2007. Then, after a few months, the first few little stories made the jump to my personal twitter account at the rate of one a week.
It wasn't until 2009 that it got an account of its own, mostly because my personal account was being deleted and the stories didn't deserve to vanish with it. And because…
