1. We love the stained glass-inspired cover of Kate Milford’s new YA novel! The folks at boingboing called her previous Kickstarted novella “a haunting and inspiring young adult story set in 1913 small-town Missouri…Filled with mystery, cannonfire and the horrors of war and a villain who’s nightmare-scary, Kairos Mechanism is a great interlude and a fine way to tide readers over after we finish the just-published Broken Lands.” 
Milford has plans to work with the good people at McNally Jackson to print the books using their Espresso Book Machine.

  2. "The pictures that meant almost nothing to people when I took them, had connected in a deep way, and without kickstarter, or the internet, it simply wouldn’t have been possible. While I didn’t need a publisher to make my book, the process of kickstarting it connected me with not only an incredible designer, but also one of the world’s best printer/publishers. While the project took longer than I had hoped, the backers got a book that is 50 times more beautiful than I could have made on my own and for me it is a powerful kickstarter success story.” Michael Galinsky on publishing Malls Across America
