WALK THE FIRE Vol. 1 is now on sale for only 99c on Kindle countdown. Grab it while it lasts to get ready for Vol 2!
This blog post started as a comment to Lucie Le Blanc’s Google Plus thread about why she’s backing away from Kickstarter. I totally get why she feels that way. Some Kickstarters don’t fulfill at all, or charge so much that some backers feel ripped off.
I say that just as my Walk The Fire Kickstarter is about to fulfill! Six months late. Oh, and all the physical rewards won’t ship until almost 8 months late. You know what, though? It’s still been a glorious success I’m proud to share with the backers. Here’s why…

I love art built on others’ art! Doubly so when it’s my work being riffed on. Check out John Anealio’s great new EP of music inspired by my WALK THE FIRE shared world.
I’m not getting any kickback from the sales of this EP, I just think John’s a talented singer and composer, definitely worth a listen or a buy. He’s written many a great geek-flavored song-and he’s included one each for the first and second ‘Walk The Fire’ anthology in this EP, along with some remixes that are pretty fine too!
This shared world tells the story of the Ferrymen: the incredibly rare men and women who can walk through a special kind of flame and safely shepherd living beings and resources to any place another branch of that flame has been carried by hand, car, boat, plane or starship…but… to walk the fire without a Ferryman is dangerous. You could arrive somewhere unintended, be burned by the flame in the attempt…or never be seen again.
Collaborators in this shared world include: Mur Lafferty, Jake Bible, Nathan Lowell, Paul Levinson, Christopher Morse, Harry Connolly, Steve Umstead, Jared Axelrod, Matt Iden, Brand Gamblin, Ed. W. Robertson, JRD Skinner, J Daniel Sawyer, Patrick McLean, Jason Andrew Bond and many more!
