Travis woke with a start – they hadn’t gotten to bed until just a few hours before . The benefit at the bar had ran late, Daddy had given them permission to stay up past bedtime but they were feeling it this morning.

CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE KICKSTARTER
Circlet Press has been around for 25 years and to make sure we’re around in the future, we’ve set the stretch goals in our Kickstarter to allow us to keep up our publishing mission in the year 2018! Yesterday we passed the $5,000 mark, so the “best of” anthology that was goal #1 will come to be! But goal #2 is actually multiple goals.
For every $500 over that initial $5 we raise, we can publish a book. In the Kickstarter campaign I listed close to a full year’s worth of books and said if we reach $10,000, they all get funded. But an opportunity for another book came up last week and it was too good to pass up. It’s larger than our usual books, with 18 stories, so it’ll need a $1,000 budget, but I think you’ll agree it’s worth going for:
