KICKSTARTER-ONLY HARDCOVER EDITION
On June 17, 2018, Rosarium Publishing will be turning five years old. So, we've decided to throw a little party. Since we like to say we "introduce the world to itself," we just knew it had to be a global party!
Like any good party, we've invited some friends, acquaintances, associates, people we've heard good things about, and some complete strangers.
The end result is Sunspot Jungle!
A two-volume, spec fic anthology filled with stories from over 100 writers from around the world!!!
This campaign is for special hardcover editions of the anthology only available to you Kickstarter supporters.
(The paperback for Vol. 1 will be out in December while the one for Vol. 2 will be released in spring of 2019.)
So, please feel free to check out the list of authors below as well as the perks (there are more to come, so stay tuned!) and hopefully you'll see fit to join the party.

Risks and challenges
The risks of completing this project are relatively low. While this is our first Kickstarter, we have successfully completed four Indiegogo campaigns.
The stories have already been compiled and only need to be edited and formatted. We've been publishing for almost five years now and have a wonderful relationship with our printer. With as much as we mail, our post office knows us by name.
Most of the other perks are books that have either already been printed or are in the pipeline to be published later this year. The perks from outside sources are from very reliable sources, many of whom have completed crowdfunding campaigns of their own. We have the utmost faith that those, too, will be delivered in a prompt manner.
In short, we are very optimistic about this campaign and its fulfillment. Once again, we thank you for your support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
