YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2 is now funding on Kickstarter

Short Story Saturday: Why it is vitally important you lend your social media support to the Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu Thunderclap campaign.

What is Thunderclap? Thunderclap is the first crowd-speaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together.

How does it work? If you reach your supporter goal (we need 100), Thunderclap will blast out a timed Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr post from all your supporters, creating a wave of attention.

Who's using it? From passionate individuals with a message to share, to organizations such as The White House, Levis and the United Nations.

It won't cost you a thing - all you have to do it let Thunderclap link to your Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr account, which will then post a one-time message to your account on January 27 at 12:00PM EST - but it could make all the difference as to whether the genre mash-up anthology of the year funds or not.

The thing is, Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu is currently funded, but until the Kickstarter ends at 1.00pm GMT on February 1 people can still pull out. If one of our higher level backers pulls out, the project will no longer fund. So, as you can imagine, the next week could potentially be a very stressful time for me and everyone who is contributing to the Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu anthology.

So what we need is to spread word of the project to other potential interested parties, and the best way to do this is via Thunderclap. And with your support that could be in the region of 200,000 people! Even if only 0.1% of those people reached go on to back the project, that would still be another 200 backers (more than there are already backing the Kickstarter at the time of writing this update).

As well as giving the Kickstarter a much-needed boost to help it cross the finish line in eight days' time, if it raises enough money the book will be illustrated throughout, so by supporting the Thunderclap campaign, even if you've already supported the Kickstarter, you could help ensure that the anthology is the best book we can produce.

So don't delay - sign up to the Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu Thunderclap campaign today! And while you're at it, why not add an exclusive Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu T-shirt to you backer pledge?


Talking of social media support, Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland could do with some more reviews on Amazon. ;-)

Thank you.


Several years after the events of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Alice finds herself back in Wonderland and called upon to save the world of playing cards and talking animals from the increasingly deranged Queen of Hearts. But all is not as it first appears in the fluctuating dream world and soon Alice is battling to save herself from the nightmare that is rapidly overtaking the realm. 

In Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland, YOU decide which route Alice should take, which perils to risk, and which of Wonderland's strange denizens to fight. But be warned - whether Alice succeeds in her quest or meets a dire end as the nightmare escalates will be down to the choices YOU make. Are you ready to go back down the rabbit-hole?
