A is for Awesome Authors, Apex, and an Anthology


Now that the initial dread and anticipation of launching a Kickstarter has passed, I am having a blast. That sense of impending doom, for me, essentially boiled down to two fears: one) will backers like the concept and two) will they like it enough so I can ensure everyone on the project is treated well.

So far? So good! It’s only been a few days, and we’re already half-funded. Due to the rapid but steady pace of our milestones, I’ve posted more updates than I initially planned. Now that we’re mid-point, I can slow down a bit to avoid flooding our backers’ InBoxes. This is all very exciting, either way. Thanks so much for supporting Upside Down!

Here are the updates about tropes I’ve posted thus far, along with a silly meme that we cooked up:

Until next time… I’ve got loads of writing to do and a bit of fake spring cleaning. We’re due for 21 inches of snow next week!
