Katie and Amanda.
One, a lonely little girl. The other, a long-awaited baby sister.
A dream come true, or a nightmare?
One must starve so the other can eat; one must work so the other can play. Throughout their lives, one must give so the other can take.
But what happens when the scales are tipped?
Set in small-town Ontario, Dead Weight is a raw look into the bond of sisterhood, one that has the power to both save and suffocate.
Dead Weight is the first venture into the print-publishing world for short-story author, blogger, and illustrator Karen Kilbride. A memoir-style novel with sharp dialogue and loveable characters, Dead Weight is an astute, insightful, and relatable story for anyone who has ever had a sibling or wanted one.
Risks and challenges
Independent publishing is a rapidly-growing industry, and it's helping thousands of new authors get their books into readers' hands that much faster! All Kickstarter funds will go towards printing and promotional costs needed to distribute this exciting new book to supporters like you!
As with any new project, there will likely be some "paper cuts" along the way, but Dead Weight is ready to go to print as soon as we reach our funding goal and will be set to launch in late November 2015. All copies and rewards will arrive to you just in time for Christmas!
If the goal is not met, your funds will not be processed, so there is no risk to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
