From the creators:
Galileo Games and Imagine That! Studios have teamed up to bring you an ambitious steampunk project! The Ministry Initiative is a two-part creative endeavor that will not only premiere new fiction from the steampunk world of the Ministry but also present a brand new role playing game from the makers of Bulldogs! and the ENnie Award winning game Shelter in Place. Thrill to the tales in Ministry Protocol anthology, or join in as an Agent in The Ministry Initiative RPG.

Find out more about this endeavor and support the Kickstarter here:

How cools is THAT!!!

PJ Schnyder, Tee Morris, and Philippa (Pip) Ballantine will all be participating in a BIG way with this project. If you’re a fan of alternate reality fiction (urban fantasy, steampunk) then you’ll be familiar with these names, and just how AWESOME this project will be!!! (And they’re not the only ones… you’ll be delighted to see who else is working on bits of this project with them!! I’m quite fond of all these lovely people, and am thrilled to help in any way I can!)

The blog hop is to help raise awareness for their Kickstarter program, and have some fun while doing it. Oh, and did I mention there are PRIZES?? The Ministry Initiative Kickstarter page outlines some great rewards for contributing to the campaign. In addition, I’m offering a SIGNED set of Ministry of Peculiar Occurances books to one of you!! (open internationally) I’ve got PHOENIX RISING and THE JANUS AFFAIR, autographed by Tee and Pip, available to one random commenter who checks out The Ministry Initiative Kickstarter page. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PLEDGE TO ENTER THIS CONTEST… but I would love it if you would consider contributing to this project. All you need to do to enter is click the link above (both the text link and the graphic will open a new window). Take a look around, find out more details, check out the generous gifts available for different levels of support. Pledge if you’re willing and able. Then, come here and let me know you did. (Yes, this is working a bit on the honor system. I’m certain I can trust all of you to participate honestly.) I’ll be choosing one winner, randomly, on May 29th at the close of the hop. Please be sure to include your name and email in your comments, AFTER you’ve checked out the Kickstarter page.

After you’re done here… be sure to check out all of the other blogs who have joined in support of this project. Lots of great places to visit, and really fun prizes to win!!! Share the links and The Ministry Initiative project info with your friends. We’re hoping to make something incredible happen, and every little bit helps. Thanks to you all!!

    I checked it out and was surprised by how cool it is. I didn’t realize what Kickstarter was until today. Nor had I heard of this series, but it sounds fun. Thanks for participating.
