Our Crimes Collide Kickstarter ends this week, and it’s really going gangbusters. We funded in record time and hit our first stretch goal in record time, too. Kickstarter named it a “Project We Love” almost immediately, too.
We can’t thank you enough for the support!
If you missed my blog last week and don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a quick summary:
Kris and Dean are collecting 100 of their mystery short stories together into a five-volume set called Crimes Collide. Fifty stories from each author in the series; ten stories from each author in every volume.
In addition to such fantastic rewards as the five Crimes Collide volumes in ebook, trade paperback and signed/limited hardcover, we have some amazing rewards for writers, and a special workshop series for writers is included in the stretch goals.
Speaking of stretch goals, we’ve already hit five, which means everyone who backs the Kickstarter gets not only the ebook editions of the five volumes of Crimes Collide, but also the following list of kickass items:
Death Takes a Diamond: A Mary Jo Assassin Novel by Dean Wesley Smith
Fiction River: Pulse Pounders, edited by Kevin J. Anderson
An Easy Shot: A Golf Thriller by Dean Wesley Smith
Fiction River: Pulse Pounders: Adrenaline, edited by Kevin J. Anderson
Bleed Through by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
Fiction River: Pulse Pounders: Countdown, edited by Kevin J. Anderson
Writing Pop-Ups ($150 value each):
Pop-Up #60: WHO, WHAT, and HOW to Study Mystery Openings
Pop-Up #61: WHO, WHAT, and HOW to Study Mystery Cliffhangers
Pop-Up #62: WHO, WHAT, and HOW to Study Mystery Main Characters
That’s about $650 worth of books and classes on top of whatever reward you choose.
That’s a hell of a steal!

The Kickstarter ends at 7:01 p.m. PST on Thursday, so don’t wait too long! It would be criminal to miss it.
