Help a Philly Fiction author travel to Africa to finish his novel

David Sanders's story "Nothing Matters" was one of the highlights of the first Philly Fiction collection, a thoughtful piece with blended internal insights with big-picture thoughts. David is working on novel, Busara Road, which draws upon his experiences growing up on a Quaker mission in Kenya in the years after that country's independence (that's him at right in his days on the mission). He's finished a rough first draft, but to flesh it out he's travelling to Kenya next month as part of his research for the book. David has set up an IndieGoGo campaign to help fund this trip. With twenty-odd day remaining he's still a few hundred dollars short of his goal. Consider giving today. Head to the campaign page or his Busara Road blog for more information. Any amount is appreciated, but for $1,000 he'll even name a character in the book after you!

Best of luck to David on his trip; we look forward to reading the novel.
