Mythical Girls Update

After a very fun Kickstarter campaign we ended up with $3829, which allowed me to pay the contributors double what I’d promised them. The content and copy edits have been completed, and when the last of the second revisions come in we’ll begin the process of proofreading.

We are also fortunate to have a talented illustrator, Lucy Harnett, working with us. Here’s the first illustration she’s completed for us.

Mythical Girls Campaign Update

The Kickstarter for Mythical Girls is halfway its thirty days and we are at 80% of our goal. I am tremendously excited about this book and the team of authors who contributed. There will be a couple more surprises before the end of the campaign.

You can support Mythical Girls and get a bundle of books from other authors in the collection. Check it out and consider supporting today.

There are only two Writer’s Packages left, this is a thorough assessment of your book for plot, character, tone and more.


You may remember a year or so back a girl found ‘Excalibur’ in Britain, in Dozmary Pool (where the Lady of the Lake lives), you may also remember a few months ago, another girl found a sword in Norway, which immediately made me think of Sigmund’s sword Gramr. This all got me wondering what other mythic weapons might be out there. Turns out there are a lot. So of course I had to wonder what happened if girls around the globe started finding these magical weapons.

The stories have been written they range from the US to Burma to Iran to fantasy worlds. The tales are about swords, bows, bracelets, combs. The one thing they all have in common is courageous heroines.

This is your chance to be part of this anthology in a different way. I’m running a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to pay my contributors better. You can check it out here. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alexmcgilvery/mythical-girls
