No, Beyond the Trope is not currently running a kickstarter. But I'm part of one!
On a couple episodes over the past year, I've mentioned by short story "Glitter Bomb." It's a fun comedy about a super villainess trying to take over a city and finding out her arch nemesis is someone unexpected.
The anthology it's in, Dangerous Women, is currently running a kickstarter campaign. We're almost at $5,000 (of a $7,500 goal), after launching last Saturday. The money will go toward printing and shipping costs for the anthology.
Our first stretch goal after we make the basic printing goal is to pay us authors more. So throw your money at us! Support Beyond the Trope by supporting my story in the anthology! Make sure I can keep affording to bring cheddar bunnies to recording! And get thirteen stories about queer lady super villains in the exchange. Or every book/comic still in print by Northwest Press. You know, because you need more comics and books in your life.
If you don't want to donate money, at least watch the video to see my dorky face in action. And let all your friends know. Word of mouth is super helpful. That's how we've survived as a podcast--all you amazing listeners!
