There is a little over a week left in the Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling Kickstarter and we are well on our way to hitting our second stretch goal. The response to this project has been overwhelming and positively amazing, and we really can't say thank you enough to everyone supporting us in this venture!
Through the efforts of the awesome editors and contributors, Upside Down has gotten coverage all over the web, with guest posts and interviews popping up in a variety of places. I wanted to take a minute to share links to all of this coolness so you can learn everything there is to know about Upside Down.

Our first stretch goal was to add critical essays by Lucy A. Snyder, A.C. Wise, and Patrick Hester to the anthology. We hit that goal, and it was announced earlier this week that we would adding two more essays! These new contributions will be written by Keffy R. M. Kehrli and Victor J. Raymond. You can read more about them and their planned essays here.
There is still plenty of time to support Upside Down on Kickstarter and help us make it even more fabulous than it already is. If we hit our second stretch goal ($15,000), we will be able to give all of our short story authors a raise, paying them $0.08 per word rather than $0.06. With less than $700 to go until we hit that goal, I am sure we can do it. Help us turn tropes Upside Down!
