Funding for this project will go to buying an ISBN number for the upcoming book, "Joy, Interrupted: An Anthology of Motherhood and Loss." This book is being published by a small press, Fat Daddy's Farm press, as a labor of love, not profit. These sixty writers and the artists from three different continents contributing their work to this anthology are dealing with an important subject. Many of them chronicle heart-wrenching losses as mothers, while others explore inspirational aspects of overcoming grief in light of personal loss. This subject has not been dealt with in many books, so this anthology is especially important for readers interested in the topic of motherhood and loss.
ISBN numbers in the United States cost $125 per title--this is cost-prohibitive for many small presses. We are asking for $150 dollars in order to cover Kickstarter fees in addition to the monies used for the ISBN itself. In order for us to publish this book as a small press, ISBN numbers are needed.
This isn't an investment or charity; it is an exchange where you will have the opportunity to let courageous and thought-provoking work see the light of day. If you feel passionate about the issue of motherhood and loss, we ask you to join us in our endeavor by making the purchase of an ISBN possible.
