The Kickstarter for Glitter and Mayhem is in its final hours.
There’s bound to be stiff competition for spots among these amazing writers, so I know my story might not make the cut. All the same, I’m enjoying writing it, and the prompt has woken some ideas deep in my lizard brain.

I mentioned on Twitter the other day that I’ve been writing to the song Do It With a Rockstar by Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra (Not Safe For Work video above), which seems to capture the anthology’s theme pretty well.
