Project successful! Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, this author's book is getting published! Goes to show that the power of community is paramount when it comes to getting creative projects off the ground.
We use Kickstarter as a means of connecting readers directly to the source. Yet Kickstarter is much more than just a tool for us, it's a part of our business model. We believe in evergreen publishing - where the resources and energy are spread throughout the process to create a product holistically.
Thanks to our incredible backers - On November 1st - the Countess Kickstarter - for the sequel to Viscountess, a Novel by Taverisa, was concluded - having raised a total of $3,253, 108% of our goal, for the publication of this stellar steampunk novel. This week, we begin formatting of the final manuscript.
We also received the artwork for the cover - and let's just say, it's every bit as epic as Viscountess.
If you still want to pre-order Countess, to get your copy before it hits Amazon, or you want to be one of the first bookstores or coffeeshops to carry the book, please leave us your information in our contact section - we will be posting links for further pre-orders soon.
We're excited to announce that for the sequel to Viscountess, a Novel by Taversia, we will be crowd funding, via Kickstarter, the initial publication in partnership with our wonderful author-partner, Taversia.
Countess will leave exactly where Viscountess left off. More details to be released, regarding the plot of this epic sequel, will follow with the release of the Kickstarter, October 1st.

Why is Holon doing a Kickstarter for this publication, if the first book was so successful?
As you know, at Holon, we're something of a hybrid publishing company - and a next-generation publishing platform. You may recall our successfully Kickstart'ed book, Saviors, a Novel by Matt Seidel, published at the beginning of this year, and crowd funded in 2013. Our goal is to employ a variety of alternative, and sustainable methods, in the publication of outstanding works.
Given our successful track record - we thought we'd try it again - handing the power of the publishing over to you, the readers, to decide what gets published.
