The UFO6 kickstarter campaign is ending tonight. 250 readers have already backed it and we’re approximately $1100 from the finish line as I type these words. Please help us with a last-minute push by letting others know about the campaign and, of course, consider backing it by pre-ordering a copy of the book and possibly availing yourself of other backer rewards.

The Kickstarter campaign for Unidentified Funny Objects 6 launched this morning. It is also the cover reveal: gaze upon another awesome illustration by Tomasz Maronski!
There are special Early Bird rewards as well which are available to those who back the campaign in the first 36 hours (by 10pm Wednesday Eastern time) — so please check it out and also help me spread the word: I can only reach a certain number of folks but everyone who shares and posts about the project will reach further, letting others know about the campaign and the UFO series!

UFO6 guidelines are posted here.
The biggest change is that our pay rates have gone up — again. UFO will be paying ten cents per word for this volume and, hopefully, going forward.
We are buying one additional right for the extra dough — the non-exclusive audio rights. I’d like to make this (and future) volumes available in audio book form. Most likely by teaming up with someone to produce the audio (if you are that person/company, feel free to reach out and we’ll talk.)
Submissions will open on April 1st for one month. One submission per writer, unless the story impresses us enough that we explicitly invite you to send another.
Oh, and of course you should read a previous volume in the UFO series to get a better grasp of what kind of story tends to win me over.
