Say what?  Yes, the Itty Kickstarter (see February 3, January 31, et al.) for funding ITTY BITTY WRITING SPACE — as well as its authors! — will end at midnight EST tonight.  That’s the book of one hundred flash fiction stories, by one hundred authors, all genres, all styles, including my epic “The Junkie” of (un)life as a zombie on the mean streets of the city.  And Editor/Publisher Jason Brick has added a new reward, an “Ebook Extravaganza” (also included in the “Book Me + Ebook Bundle” option, plus two at the $60 level and one at $85), to wit:  You get everything in “I Love Living In The Future” PLUS a collection of 12 full-length ebooks by our authors!  How cool is that?  It’s like getting a book for a buck twelve times!  How cool indeed!

The authors included are Ahmed A. Khan, Craig English, Randy Attwood, Cathy Smith, Halli Lilburn, Jean Harkin, Ian Jedlica, Karen Eisenbrey, Russell Nohelty, James Dorr, Ali Lauderdale, Melissa Dull, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lisa Love, plus Jason Brick according to a recent email, actually a few more than

“At midnight it all turns back into a pumpkin.”

12 if I have it right, but there is one disclaimer.  My entry, anyway, is in the just over 30,000-word range which is a bit short of novel-length by most standards, so if it counts as a “full-length ebook” may be in the eye of the beholder.  The title is A JAMES DORR SAMPLER:  SEVEN STORIES OF FANTASY, SCIENCE FICTION, AND HORROR, and it consists of one story each from my early collections STRANGE MISTRESSES and DARKER LOVES (for more on all of these click the book’s picture in the center column), two from my Stoker(R) nominated THE TEARS OF ISIS, two from my novel-in-stories TOMBS:  A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH, and one uncollected extra, all in a somewhat “rough and ready” PDF format.

Seems like a pretty good deal to me, bit then I do have a rat in the race.  But check out the kickstarter for yourself by pressing here — and remember to hurry, it all ends at midnight!

And now for something completely different.  Or, well, different at least, a recasting of an interview of . . . *moi* . . . by Rushelle Dillon (cf. October 22 2017) in a video format, or part of it anyway.  The title is “Video Refresh:  James Dorr Interview” by Stuart Conover and it’s on HORRORTREE.COM.  Or, to let the poster speak for himself:  A Sample of our interview with James Dorr by Ruschelle Dillon.  In the interview, he has a lot of fun details on his take on the writing process.  If you delve into the full interview there are a lot of playful details on his life on top of that!  . . .  This is a new format that we’re playing around with for articles, interviews, and potentially Trembling With Fear.  Please let us know if this is something that you’d like to see more of!

For more, press here (yes, it is kind of fun)!  And there’s also a link if you wish to read the whole interview as it had been originally posted.

Then a quick word on the two Kickstarters we followed earlier this month.  The ITTY BITTY WRITING SPACE one (see February 3, January 29) will be over this Thursday, February 21, so there’s not much time left if you’re tempted to participate.  The other for Gehenna and Hinnom Books (see February 1), with as of now a few extra rewards added, will end just past the close of the month, on Saturday March 2.  Links to both can be found in their posts on the dates just noted.

***NOTE: The Library Benefit extends until Thursday (Jan 31) at midnight, PST.  If you back at the $25 or $50 level, we will match you and give books to a library of your choice.***

Thus starred and noted comes the announcement from publisher Jason Brick concerning the “Itty Bitty Kickstarter” (see January 29, et al.) special feature, that certain pledges of $25 or $50 made during the first two days will include a donation of the anthology ITTY BITTY WRITING SPACE to the local library of your choice.  This is an anthology of flash fiction, 100 stories of 1000 words or less, by 100 authors — a style and a writer for every taste! — including even a story by me, “The Junkie,” of zombies (well one anyway) and drugs.  And now one more thing:  We have a specific cut off time for those willing to donate one to their library, midnight (PST) Thursday — today!

For more, press here.

You want some fiction?  We got your fiction right here!  A hundred tales of derring-do, introspection, love, hate, joy, fear, science fiction, mystery, romance, fantasy, and all manner of other things for your reading pleasure.  That’s 100 stories from 100 authors with 100 voices at under 1000 words apiece.  It’s ITTY BITTY WRITING SPACE (see January 27, et al.) and today the Kickstarter has begun!

And one special feature:  Certain pledges of $25 or $50, provided they’re made within 48 hours, include a donation of the book to your local — or other favorite — library.  Check it out by pressing here, then scroll down the pledge levels to the right for the ones that have the library option, but, again, pledges for these must be made today or tomorrow — within the Kickstarter’s first 48 hours!  But other options exist as well, and whatever is given will help ITTY BITTY WRITING SPACE get published (if all goes well, to be out around June) as well as helping the authors get paid.  That is to say, me, and 99 others.

My part in the pack, incidentally, is a new tale called “The Junkie,” of mean streets and drug addiction and . . . zombies.  Or at least one zombie, insofar as it’s only about 750 words long.  So reading is addictive too, and to help this book meet the people who need it, for the Kickstarter again press here, check the options out, and do pledge what you can.
