Happy April Fools Day, everyone. Fear no wily pranks from me today, for actual stories take precedence: The Unlikely Journal of Coulrophobia is up, and my flash piece, “Break the Face in the Jar by the Door,” is available, should you be interested in reading it.
Surprisingly, that’s not all. Unlikely Story plans to turn this mini-issue of offbeat clown tales into a larger anthology, tentatively titled Clowns: The Unlikely Coulrophobia Remix. I’m pretty excited about this project and hope it gets funded, so in addition to all the self-promotion, I’m also here to ask for your money. That’s right — it’s Kickstarter time!
Details about the project can be found here. Please take a look and see if you’re interested in helping out. There are a lot of awesome rewards — believe it or not, my particular brand of snark is actually one of them. I’m offering to write a movie review for any film the contributor wants me to watch. (Provided it’s not porn or an inspirational sports movie. I do have limits to my generosity, guys.) But there’s a lot of other neat stuff available, too. I’m pretty interested in those Mari Ness clown limericks, myself.
In the meantime, I hope you’re having a good April Fool’s Day where your tricks are funny but not too mean. (Like, don’t be those guys who pretend to be killer clowns in the middle of the night. That’s just evil, and seems like a good way to get yourself shot.)
