CHIRAL MAD – ILLUSTRATED! (and final push)

CM5_percent_funded_130

Thanks to your help, Chiral Mad 5 is happening. We have officially reached the first two goal unlocks, which means the anthology will include at least 100,000 words of fiction and poetry, featuring at least 15 stories and 15 poems, and will have the fiction illustrated throughout.

Seth Brown has been commissioned to create black and white interior artwork for each of the stories within Chiral Mad 5. At least 15, but perhaps more. Some of his most recent work includes cover art for FIYAH Literary Magazine.

But the campaign’s not over yet. We have until midnight tonight to reach our next unlock:

When the campaign reaches 150% funding, or $7,500, all contributors of underrepresented demographics will receive 8 cents per word for their fiction (instead of 6 cents per word, and likewise a bump for poetry payment) to meet SFWA consideration for professional payment.

After the campaign ends, it will still run for a few months (for additional pre-orders) so additional funds can be collected to hopefully make this final goal happen. So, you are not only helping raise funds for Black Lives Matter (where all profit from this book will go), but you are also helping writers receive professional payment for their work, at rates not only approved by the Horror Writers Association (HWA), but also the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).

Thank you for your support!

Let’s keep this going …
