Fans Write

Kurtherian Gambit Fans Write for Fans

Kurtherian Gambit Fans Write for Fans is an exciting new project from Michael Anderle and LMBPN publishing- creating books where fans write fan stories that we publish…for the fans!

Our goal with the project is not to make money, which is unlikely after paying for the stories, editing, and the covers.  Instead, our goal is to create something fans will enjoy and others will say…”Why the hell didn’t we think of that?”

Due to the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Fans Write for the Fans Volume 01, we’re doing it all again and are currently accepting submissions for Volume 02.
