Falling In Deep by Julia Krase
Falling In Deep by Julia Krase

Loved & Lost is an anthology collecting 9 stories about navigating through the treacherous waters of modern romance and discovering that not all relationships work out the way you expect.

All 9 stories are written by Tyler Chin-Tanner and illustrated by a different artist or art team. The collection is almost entirely done but we need your help to finish the production and get this book printed!

Risks and challenges

After having having run the successful Kickstarter campaign for the Broken Frontier anthology and then having it printed and delivered to backers, I can assure you that anthologies present a number of challenges. But they weren't anything we couldn't handle at the time and we're even better prepared for them now.

First and foremost, we've collected the stories ahead of time so there won't be a wait for them to come in. We've already arranged the details with the printer, and we're much more experienced in how to ship the books safely to backers all over the world.
