quick post : signal-boosting

It doesn’t rain but it pours, so the saying goes. Not only am I in the midst of writing wordage for the wip, but I’m taking a quick break to do some editing and translating for a good friend. Add to that reading a lot and doing some mental prep for Eastercon. It’s funny how the universe converges all at the same time. 

Some things I’d like to give a boost: 

Long Hidden: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History has five more days to go before the Kickstarter ends. The stretch goal is to provide artwork for every story in the anthology. 

Another crowdfunder that really grabbed my attention was one for The Abandon. There are four days left to their Indiegogo campaign and they still have to reach the goal of raising 5000 dollars. There’s a pilot available and if you like it and would like to see more, please support this project.

Afronauts is the third crowdfunded project that I want to signal-boost. Go have a look at the site. The premise just calls to me and I would really love to see this film made. There are still 25 days before the Kickstarter ends, time enough to think about it and lend a helping hand. 

It may seem like this entry is all about crowdfunding, but I keep thinking of a tweet I read from Nnedi Okorafor sometime ago. In it she said, why don’t you just let us tell our own stories. 

This is what these projects are all about. Us telling our stories. Us making our films. Us bringing our stories, our art, our histories, our films and our SFF to our people.
