“Got Demon?” (Kickstarter for Gregory S. Close’s SF/F novel GREYSPACE)

Once upon a time, back when I was keeping myself out of trouble by spending much of my free time on peer-critique sites for writers, proofreading/line editing random chapters of novels written by total strangers (the way one does), I happened to see a listing for a SF/F novel-in-progress called Greyspace. I liked the way the title was spelled, so I clicked on the link and read several chapters of the story.

I loved it. I may even have geeked out a little bit in the midst of correcting comma splices and whatnot…

So that’s the short version of how I became a fan of Gregory S. Close’s fiction.

Greg set Greyspace aside only half-finished, though, because there was an epic fantasy novel (In Siege of Daylight) demanding to be written Right Now. So I never did find out what happened after the part he posted on WritersCafe.

Now, though, Greg has a Kickstarter thing to get funding for all the stuff an indie author needs to prepare a novel for publication: editing, cover art, etc. (His chosen cover artist is quite good, too.) You should check this out, read the sample chapters, listen to the theme music written by Greg himself (yes, he’s a musician as well as a SF/F novelist), and consider pledging a few dollars to getting Greyspace off the ground.

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
