(Big News)

Hi. This is an out of character post.

I've been working on this blog for a long time. There are a lot of you out there reading it, and a lot of people buying the eBooks. I know that you, the fans, are supportive and awesome. So I'm bringing you this news with the hope that once again you will come through for me.

This Link Right Here is to Kickstarter. Specifically, to a Kickstarter campaign to adapt Living With the Dead into a live-action web series. Ten episodes, about six minutes each. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time now, and with funding I can make it something better than just me in front of a camera. It can have makeup, maybe some special effects, who knows what kind of shenanigans we'll be able to throw in there with enough money.

But I can't do it without you. I don't have the funds to make this happen on my own, so I'm turning to crowdsourcing to get it done. Kickstarter is a neat creative-funding website that allows users to decide what projects they want to give to. I have a month from pretty much right now to hit my goal, or the campaign fails. We're shooting for $6,000 by then. That's the bare minimum we'd need to hit to make this happen.

If you decide to back the project and it fails, you don't get charged a dime. But you aren't just throwing dollars at me willy-nilly, either. No, sir (or ma'am, as the case may be)! See, if you back the project, you get rewards. Depending on how much money you decide to put in it, the rewards can be pretty cool. There are eleven reward levels at present, but if enough people back the project I'll start adding more. Every dollar helps get us toward our goal, so please think about giving us a hand.

Click here to go to my Kickstarter campaign page, and please share the link, tell others, and try to help us get the funding we need. If you can't afford to back the project, that's cool. Sharing the links would be just fine, too.
