Weldon Writes ... Almost a Blog

The ASININE ASSASSINS Kickstarter Campaign

I'm looking forward to publishing the third in Smart Rhino's "Assassins" series, ASININE ASSASSINS. Unlike UNCOMMON ASSASSINS and INSIDIOUS ASSASSINS, this new book includes stories of inept contract killers, absurd assassins, cockeyed hired guns, moronic murderers, and several of the worst hitmen (and women) you'd ever hope to never meet. Sure, there's suspense and intrigue. But there are plenty of laughs and fun, too.

 

But, like many small, independent publishers, Smart Rhino Publications has limited funding. So, that's why we've launched a Kickstarter campaign. Besides the usual costs (cover art, cover design, editing and proofreading, formatting, etc.), our chief reason to run a crowdfunding event is to be able to pay our writers fairly. We'd love to compensate the writers at a professional rate, but that's not possible with the funds currently available. Your support can make that happen.

 

We're proud to provide a venue for writers with our books and we can only continue to do so with your support. And the success of our most recent book feeds the production and promotion of the next one. And we do want the next one!

 

And there are numerous rewards for your support. Check out the Kickstarter page to see what we're offering. I'm sure you'll find something you'd like.

Here's the Table of Contents for ASININE ASSASSINS. Excellent writers here, folks. They pretty much took the theme of the book and ran full tilt with it (and some are more "tilted" than others). You're sure to find some surprises in this diverse selection of stories. The titles alone should tempt you!
