A signal boost

19 07 2013

A group of my colleagues at SpecFicNZ, spearheaded by the energetic and talented Dan Rabarts (and with editorial backup from the delightful Lee Murray), have put together an anthology called Baby Teeth, a collection of horror stories inspired by the creepy things kids say.


They’re setting up to sell the anthology (in both print and e-formats) as a fundraiser for New Zealand’s ‘Duffy Books In Homes‘ child literacy programme, and they’re running a PledgeMe campaign to raise $1000 (NZD) to cover costs for an initial print run. You can pledge as little as $5, and a pledge of $10 suffices to get you a copy of the e-book. (Some of the incentives / rewards are available only in NZ, but the e-book offer is certainly international.)

If you’re wavering, the authors represented are:

Jake Bible, Anna Caro, Debbie Cowens, Matt Cowens, Morgan Davie, Elizabeth Gatens, Jean Gilbert, Jan Goldie, JC Hart, Alan Lindsay, Kevin G MacLean, Paul Mannering, Sally McLennan, Piper Mejia, Lewis Morgan, Celine Murray, Lee Murray, Jack Newhouse, Michael J Parry, Alicia Ponder, Dan Rabarts, Jenni Sands, Darian Smith, Matthew Sanborn Smith, Grant Stone, and M Darusha Wehm.

I’m familiar with enough of those names to convince me that this is going to be a very classy collection, and it’s in a very good cause. Please get behind it!

Thanks Simon! The PledgeMe campaign went really well, and the book was picked up by Wellington indie publisher Paper Road Press. Book launches start around New Zealand from October 30, and presales can be found here: http://www.paperroadpress.co.nz/baby-teeth.html
