I’m creating a book that includes 150 facts about West Virginia. It is a celebration of the states 150th birthday- (1863 to 2013).

Please repost this little link on facebook, twitter, myspace, linedin, and other places:  http://kck.st/kv1zYE

Here is the final copy of the cover:

150 Things You Should Know About West Virginia

(A book).

  • I want to self-publish a fun book with 150 facts about West Virginia. It is a book full of fun facts about the state. It is a celebration of the state’s upcoming 150th birthday. It will include 150 colorful pictures by several of my friends throughout the state.
  • I’m using kickstarter to test the market to see if people are interested in this book. If so, they’ll pledge to support it and help us reach our financial goal to self-publish the book.

Pledge $23 -- and you're pretty much pre-ordering the book.

However, there are going to be many additional rewards, too!
