Dear Writer-Friends,

I've been self-publishing since 2011, and I've shared the knowledge I've gained in two books: the Indie Author Survival Guide, Second Edition, and For Love or Money. I'm not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: I'm one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. These books are my way of helping my fellow authors discover the freedom of indie publishing. Write on, writer-friends!

Giveaway: Help Fund My Robot Army... Ebook!

This anthology contains great "stories" by Synchronic authors Samuel Peralta ("Liberty: Seeking a Writ of Habeas Corpus for a Non-human Being") and Jason Gurley, as well as Michael J. Sullivan, Tobias S. Buckell, and more... (Edited by John Joseph Adams)

HELP FUND MY ROBOT ARMY!!! is an anthology of science fiction/fantasy stories told in the form of fictional crowdfunding project pitches, using the components (and restrictions) of the format to tell the story. This includes but is not limited to: Project Goals, Rewards, User Comments, Project Updates, FAQs, and more. The idea is to replicate the feel of reading a crowdfunding pitch, so that even though the projects may be preposterous in the real world, they will feel like authentic crowdfunding projects as much as possible.

  1. I have to say, I have NEVER thought of using a crowdfunding project pitch to tell a story!

  2. I think I'd like robots not too similar to human beings, complementary but not too similar, that would rise too many ethical questions.

  3. I'd be happy to have more chore robots - dusting, cooking, laundry, bill paying, even the occasional dog walking

  4. I would like some robots one we can shut down quick if they try to rebel. But I would like one that will exercise with you and help with chores without complaining

  5. Food making robots.

  6. ones that did chores
