Going On the Account: A Clue…

I’ve talked here a few times about the next project, and some of the elements that will end up as part of the new work.

 

Well, for those folk who are interested in potential spoilers, here’s a clue about what may go into the setting of the work…

Going On the Account: As I Was Saying…

Going On The Account: Tis the Season…

Just in time for Halloween is a great review of The Ghost Pirates by William Hope Hodgson, a classic tale of a ship haunted at sea.  The review is by Larry Latham, whose webcomic Lovecraft is Missing is a great scary read itself.

 

So if your entire experience for the holiday has as its horizon just the Flying Dutchman, which as of late has been rendered impotent by a kid’s property (much the same way vampires have been de-fanged as of late…), then here’s a chance to find something to help re-kindle what the holiday’s supposed to feel like.

Going On the Account: Getting a Kick?

Kickstarter.

 

Heard of it, seen some fellow web creators use it to get their projects off the ground.  And today, saw a story about a theatrical film that used it to keep the production going.

 

And boy, does it sound tempting, as a way to get a concise edition of the novel together to offer.  With the seed money, getting a version of the novel together to make available for print and book reader would be a lot easier.

 

Anyone out there use Kickstarter?  If so, what was the experience like?  And to everyone in general, what’re your thoughts about passing the hat to get things moving?  Come parley here on that…
