This is a very brief interview – I’ll be doing a longer one with Ellen in the next few months. I wanted to catch up with her, though, about her Kickstarter campaign for Fearful Symmetries, an unthemed horror anthology she will edit, published by Chizine. As of right now, the campaign is underway and not yet fully funded. I thought it worth calling people’s attention to it because:
1) Ellen edits amazing anthologies, mixing work by seasoned pros and promising newcomers (and no, she’s never bought anything from me, and likely won’t for this anthology either. She only takes the very best).
2) This campaign was one Ellen purposely undertook the hard way. She could have partnered with a publisher and raised only the amount of money needed for author’s advances, but decided this was a poor precedent to set.
To hear more about that, the anthology, and the very cool rewards being offered, including this beautiful piece of art pictured below, click the following link:
The duration of this interview is nine minutes. And if you feel so inclined, here again is the link to her Kickstarter Campaign, so you can back it. At the very least, check out her pitch video. It’s fantastic!
