Smut in Space!

Cartwheel Galaxy (It sounds like it's from a sci-fi story, right? But it's real! This pic is from the Hubble Telescope.)

*** UPDATE: This project got fully funded! Woo hoo! ***

A writer friend, Mary Anne Mohanraj, is looking to publish a book of erotic sci-fi–I’ve read the first three stories of the collection (along with a lot of her other work) and they’re great. In addition to being hot, fun, well-written stories, she also makes an effort to include characters that are diverse racially, sexually, and in other ways, which makes her work more interesting than most.

Instead of going through her usual agent/publisher route, she’s trying something new and going through Kickstarter. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Kickstarter: It’s a site that allows artists of all kinds to post their projects and get them funded by people who are interested and would like to see the final project get made.

In addition to wanting to see my friend succeed, I’d also like to see this project get published because it’s important to get more diverse characters in sci-fi. Plus, it’s gonna be good.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, check it out! She’s got some really fun prizes for supporters. :)
