And so, in my spare time (HA!) I have agreed to be involved in the delightful Emily Craven’s Choose Your Own Adventure project – if you know anything about my schedule, you will be impressed by Emily’s powers of persuasion. Em’s brief is below – if you’ve got a few spare shekels left over from, you know, buying books, then toss them in the good old tin over at Pozible, here.
Do you remember the old Choose Your Own Adventure books? How would you like to do one in real life?
For those of you who don’t know, I’m taking part in a new collaborative writing project where myself and some other fantastic genre writers are writing Choose Your Own Adventures that you can do in real life! Not only will you actually get to stand where the story is happening but you can dictate what happens next, while you explore the weird and wonderful features of a new (or old!) city.
But we need your help to get this project off the ground. To do this we have set up a crowdfunding page for our project http://pozible.com/chooseadventure. If you don’t know what crowdfunding is, it’s all explained on the page. But one thing to keep in mind is it involves rewards and they are amazing, including everything from signed books to Skype conversations with the authors. If you could pledge to this project I would be greatly appreciative. Even if the only thing you can afford is to pass the word onto your friends, family, and colleges or just pledge $5, every bit counts!
We launch today, the 5th of August, hopefully if we can raise a large portion of our goal on the first day we should be able to get some media attention.
Before signing off I thought I’d let you know some of the stellar writers who will also be writing a choose your own adventure for this project:
Isobelle Carmody, Marianne De Pierres, Sean Williams, Mindy Klasky, Mark Leslie, Sophie Masson, Michael Pryor, Tansy Rayer Roberts, Kim Wilkins, Angela Slatter, Lee Battersby, David B. Coe, Jennifer St George, and ME!
