The New York edition is already available online through several major booksellers where it’s being well received, making #11 on Kindle’s Travel & Dining guides. It’s also available at McNally Jackson Bookstore in Soho.
Listing over a hundred establishments throughout New York’s various neighborhoods, the New York edition is “a fantastic read” that “many authors, college and university students will be rushing out to get,” according to one review.
Juliet chose to raise funds for the remaining books through Kick Starter because it’s the beginning of a new trend in self-publishing:
The Kickstarter campaign for the Writer’s Retreat series seeks to raise $2500 in Kickstarter pre-orders to cover design and printing costs. If the $2500 can be raised by the deadline of April 6th, the project will proceed and those who donated will be given rewards based on their levels of donation.
For a donation of only $5, backers receive e-copies of their choice of 6 the 10 cities from the series.
For $10, backers receive e-copies of all 10 books!
For a pledge of only $25, backers receive e-copies of all books, and their choice of print copies of any 4 of the books.
For a pledge of $50, backers receive print and e-copies of all 10 books in the series.
There are also several donation levels intended primarily for businesses.
A pledge of $100 receives not only print and e-copies of all books in the series, but also a sponsor page at the back of the Writer’s Retreat guide to the city of their choice!
A pledge of $250 will receive the print and e-copies of all books, and a sponsor page at the back of all city guides!
