If you're a fan of adventure franchises like Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, and Uncharted, you'll find my newest reader input opportunity very exciting!
You can help create the hero ($5), the villain ($5), and the treasure they're both hunting ($3) for a new adventure story that I'm going to write.

As I write this, the Grocery Fund for March sits at $69.63, pretty far short of its $300 goal. That's quite a drop off, considering that we reached the goal in both January and February, but there are a couple of reasons not to panic!
1) The Special People IndieGoGo campaign has been running this month (and will still be going next month), so I've been directing people's attention towards that quite a bit. Some funds that might have been used to buy things from the Store or left as donations have gone towards the fundraiser, instead, and that's great!
2) I'm not counting in-person sales/preorders of DISCOVERY towards the Grocery Fund until I receive payment for them. The books haven't arrived yet, but they should be hitting my doorstep in the next couple of days. Once I start putting them into people's hands and getting paid for them, those sales will get counted towards the Grocery Fund. They'll probably get counted towards April instead of March, though.
Thank you to everyone who has been chipping in, whether that's to the Grocery Fund or the Special People fundraiser. We're still only in the third month of this crazy ride, so there are plenty of good things to come, and lots of growth to go through!
Edit: As of March 30, some unanticipated generosity has pushed us much closer to the $300 goal. Hooray, and thank you!

Welcome to week 13 of the Year of Stories!
Darien Hammond and his wife, Tiffany, helped clear planet Oronado of the incumbent alien Cust almost two decades ago. They laid down roots, started a farm and a family, and settled into their new life. Then the Cust returned. The human settlers are on the run, scrambling into shuttles as their cities and farms are burned from orbit. Can Darien and his family make it out in time?
People change. Places change. Dean Cooper knows that as well as anyone. Change is the only constant thing in his life; he accepted that fact a long time ago. But when he decides to stop in at his childhood home one day, will he find its new owners' changes so easy to handle?
