"Through Button Eyes, A Collection of Short Fiction" will be available in most popular e-Book formats and in physical soft-cover print form. Make sure you indicate on the Kickstarter survey when the Campaign ends which specific format you want the book.
The authors would love to hear from their readership (it may swell their egos, but it's good for the soul). To contact an author, please submit a request via the Placer Gold Writers Ink webpage contact link: http://placergoldwriters.org/ContactUs/tabid/1619/Default.aspx
Yes. The book will be available through most online bookstores, in bookstores (if they don't have it, they can order it using the ISB Number... then tell them to stock it!!) If all else fails, drop us an email and we'll see what we can do to make one available.
There were twenty original stories submitted for review. Five of those stories were not used due to lower than expected reviews, could not be completed within the deadlines, or were not in line with the intended mature reading audience. All members of Placer Gold Writers group agreed to the risks of possible rejection. FYI: No writers were harmed mentally, physically, or emotional while creating this book.
The average initial story draft took three to five hours to write. However, it is estimated that the re-writes, critiques, reviews, and editing process of each story may have taken twenty to thirty hours, if not more, to fine tune the story to the standards set by Placer Gold Writers Ink editorial staff.
Yes... it has been a labor of love and one huge education in the editing and publishing business. We have come a LONG way from the initial concept of the book and the journey has had it's challenges. Overall, we are far better writers, editors, publishers, and marketers for having accepted the challenge. Once this book is completed, we look forward to doing it all over again with several more books. YEAH!! GO PLACER GOLD WRITERS!!
