The Diving Universe Kickstarter

UPDATE: 
Because you folks are amazingly awesome. I’ve seen some of the promotion that you’re doing on social media (not all of it, because I’m only on Facebook and Twitter a few times a day), and what you’re doing rocks! Thank you for not only backing this Kickstarter, but letting your friends know. I really appreciate it.

Now, we’re on to the 4th stretch goal, and we have a chance of making it, with 11 or so days left. That’ll add the ebook version of short story collection The Early Conundrumsand two more short stories, as well as all six advanced business lectures (for writers and small business owners). The lecture series is a $250 value all by itself.

We have plans for a 5th stretch goal, which I will put up shortly. Because, honestly, I had never expected to hit one stretch goal, let alone all of these. So I’m sticking with the way we’ve structured this Kickstarter: we unlock a stretch goal, and aim toward the next, while I put up the one after that, so the path forward is somewhat clear. 

But first—and most important of all—thank you from the bottom of my heart.

In case you’re not paying attention to the Kickstarter (and why would you, really?), I thought I would point out that we hit our initial goal within about 18 hours of the start. Which surprised the heck out of me. I figured it would take until the middle of the Kickstarter run to get there. But it only took a few hours.

THANK YOU!!!

What that meant for us, though, was that we had to figure out another stretch goal. We had one, but we needed a second. We posted that late yesterday. So now, if you back the Kickstarter and ask for a reward, you’ll get whatever you signed up for as well as two novellas and a WMG lecture (worth $50)…if we hit both stretch goals.

Again, thank you for all the support. This outpouring for the Diving universe means a great deal to me.

Leaving Boss behind to continue diving the Boneyard, Ivoire Engineer Yash Zarlengo returns to the Lost Souls Corporation’s headquarters to analyze the data from the runabout they discovered there.

Convinced that the experience in the Boneyard proves the Fleet still exists, Yash buries herself in her work, interested in little else.

Ivoire Captain Jonathan “Coop” Cooper notices Yash’s growing obsession with finding the Fleet and joins her in her search.

For the first time in six years, the crew of the Ivoire feels real hope. Coop and Yash know all too well the dangers hope can pose. But this time their hope might just lead them somewhere no one expected.

A page-turning adventure, Searching for the Fleet expands Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s award-winning Diving series into uncharted territory.

A part of Searching For The Fleet, a novelette titled “Lieutenant Tightass” is available in Asimov’s July/August 2018 issue.

A graveyard of spaceships, abandoned by the mysterious Fleet thousands of years earlier. Boss calls it “the Boneyard.” She needs the ships inside to expand her work for Lost Souls Corporation. Yash Zarlengo thinks the Boneyard will help her discover if the Fleet still exists.

Boss and Yash, while exploring the Boneyard, discover a small ship with a powerful and dangerous problem: The ship’s active anacapa drive.

To escape the Boneyard, Boss must deal with the drive. Which means she’ll have to dive the ship on limited time and under extremely dangerous conditions. And she can’t go alone.

A heart-stopping adventure that continues the thrill ride of Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s award-winning Diving series.

The Runabout Appears…In A Magazine!

Last fall, I surprised myself by selling the magazine rights for The Runabout to Asimov’s. Yes, before you ask, there will still be a standalone book edition, but this magazine publication comes first.

This week, the issue appeared, making The Runabout the first novel published in its entirety in Asimov’s in the magazine’s 40-year history. I’m grateful for all the faith that Sheila Williams has in my work. As a former digest magazine editor, I know how much an editor has to believe in a writer to use up that much real estate on one piece of fiction.

If you want to sample the story before picking up the issue, click here for the excerpt.

The actual standalone book will appear in October in ebook, paper, and audio editions. So if you can wait for that, go ahead. (I’ll let you know when you can preorder it.) But you can find out what happens next right here, right now, by getting Asimov’s, and you’ll also get even more great fiction from some of my favorite short fiction writers (including but not limited to Karen Joy Fowler and Dale Bailey).

 Asimov’s is available as both print and ebook editions. You can get the magazine on Amazon, but you can also order from the Asimov’s website itself.
