Buy a Scifi Short Story – Get Me Into the SFWA!

Greetings!
We probably don’t know each other, but I’m a broke SF author who’s trying to be slightly-less broke. This is the next step in that journey. Real artists ship, so for me, joining the Science Fiction Writers of America is a logical step in that process.Being in the SFWA gets you additional support as an author, it’s one of the gold standards of scifi authors, and it qualifies you for a Hugo Award. It’s been on my bucket list to win a Hugo or a Nebula Award or both, but I can’t get there on my own.

$58.93

Here’s where I need your help. I’m submitting short stories to SFWA-approved magazines, and I’m also self-publishing other short stories to see which path helps me get there. I can’t become an official card-carrying member of the Science Fiction Writers of America until I sell one story, or pass ~$1000 in sales from my self-published work.

So I’m putting the word out, asking for your support, to help me get to that point. Would you consider buying one or more of my $0.99 short stories below? With your support, I can get my short stories into consideration for those awards.

That success will bring me, and by extension you, closer to what I refer to as the ‘Author Success Sequence’ ->. If you’d like to learn more about me, or the success sequence, I have a quick break-down right here.

Check below – you’ll like my Twilight Zone-style, Hard SF, or MG/YA style – each are only $0.99 and every story brings me one step closer to my membership. Thank you!
