And fantasy novels are even more magical!
Dreaming Robot Press is thrilled to announce this year’s fantasy releases – two great stand-alone novels fantasy lovers of all ages are sure to enjoy. This Kickstarter helps us meet pre-publication costs, and gives you a chance for discounted prices, early access and some fun bonuses!
UNLOCKED: Bonus books for libraries! For every $50 raised over $1200, Dreaming Robot Press will sponsor a copy of each book for public schools and libraries. Every backer is helping to provide additional books for school and public libraries - thank you!
New Stretch Goal: For every $1000 above our goal, Dianna Sanchez will do a free school visit within 25 miles of Cambridge, MA. Supporters can nominate schools (with the school's permission, please!), and we'll choose the winners randomly. If we hit $5000, Dianna will also offer school visits in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area (in arrangement with her schedule).
Early backer bonus: The first fifty backers will get a bonus with their books! Those who back at ebook only levels will be sent high resolution files of the book covers and those backing at a paperback level will receive printed cards of the covers.

A Witch’s Kitchen, a MG fantasy from debut novelist Dianna Sanchez.
Millie's a witch, so why can't she do magic? Despite her mother's best efforts to teach her, every spell Millie tries goes horribly wrong, but she's a fabulous cook. When Millie conjures chocolate sauce instead of a transformation potion, her mother gives up and sends her to the Enchanted Forest School, where she's bullied by goblins, snubbed by an elf, and has her hat stolen. Even as Millie's magical talent begins to develop, turning her house ghost into a frog and accidentally charming her entire class, Millie starts to wonder: what if she's not a witch at all? To find out, she and her new friends embark on a dangerous quest to find Millie's father in the Logical Realm, in contemporary Salem, MA.
Deep in a fantasy realm adjacent to our own, the Enchanted Forest School is located in the branches of an enormous oak tree and has a dragon for a headmistress. Millie’s initial delight in attending school rapidly fades as she struggles in the unfamiliar social environment, encountering fellow students of magical races, making new friends, and discovering that her mother’s style of magic isn’t the only one available.
A Witch’s Kitchen is a delightful 54,000 word middle grade novel.
The Demon Girl’s Song, a YA fantasy from Extrahuman Union author Susan Jane Bigelow.
She wanted adventure... she got a demon and a dying world.
More than anything, Andín dal Rovi wants to escape her small town life, helping her father in the store, watching her younger brother prepare to take the place at University she’d longed for.
Instead of escape, she gets a thousand-year-old demon stuck in her head, and she loses everything – her home, her family and her country.
In the quest to regain her identity, she finds herself racing against time to uncover the secrets of her world – and save it from utter annihilation.
The Demon Girl's Song is a 90,000 word young adult fantasy novel. The journey of Andín and the beautifully detailed world she explores, will appeal to readers of diverse backgrounds.

Risks and challenges
This is our fourth Kickstarter - I think by now we have all the kinks worked out. Books are done, edited, and we're about to send out review copies to journals. But just in case, we have allowed for some buffer, so we can make sure books get to backers in time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
