    I am very much alive - I spend most of my time writing and painting, and have a one-man gallery show scheduled for next May in Harrisonburg VA. I just completed a supernatural-ish novel, currently going through edits, and had a new short story collection come out - DOWN THERE & Others - this past autumn, available in TPB at Amazon, and in e-book everywhere. Now if only someone would buy it...

    I follow him on Twitter. He posts occasionally. He has shut down White Noise Press unfortunately. Explained that it never made money and he just can't continue to support it.

    That's too bad, Keith. Maybe its time will still come 'round....

    Kickstarter is interesting. One the one hand, I wouldn't feel comfortable using it for one of my own projects (though never say never); on the other hand, some truly spectacular works have been brought to life because of it. In the end, it's not begging or swindling if people are voluntarily supporting something they very much want to see created. Essentially, you're giving people what they want and involving them in its development. If it doesn't raise enough, nobody's out anything. If it does, a very cool project comes to life. Just my 2 cents.
    So if the Kickstarter campaign falls through, everyone is refunded their money? I honestly wouldn't see any harm in that if that's the case. I guess it's still quite a risk if said campaign could just take the money and run with no end result for the backers. I still admire Keith's stance as well.

    Very sorry to hear it, Keith, but admire your principled stance.

    Sorry to hear, Keith. That's a standup policy as far as funding your projects. Hats off.

    Sorry this fell through, I'm sure other opportunities will present themselves in time.

    Would be cool if we could pre order this as it's right up my street.
