Much going on with Dzanc as always, read on to learn of that please.
We've launched our four latest rEprint titles from award-winning author Merrill Joan Gerber. We also have a Kickstarter Fundraiser Project in progress (details below).

Kickstarter Project Ends This Week

Dzanc has had a fundraising project accepted by Kickstarter--and it is specifically about our rEprint series.

Thanks to those of you that have made pledges and/or spread the word so far--we appreciate it greatly.

We had a very good Monday and took another big step toward our goal, but are at a point where we need to raise the last $1000 by Saturday or we do not receive any of what has been pledged so far.

We added some special new rewards such as lunches, drinks, conversations, etc with numerous Dzanc authors.

A bit from the About page of the Kickstarter Page:

As part of our mission to publish great works of literary fiction and nonfiction, Dzanc Books has expanded its publishing to include eBooks. Working with a great staff and distribution, Dzanc has created its rEprint series, the first of its kind, specifically dedicated to bringing back in eBook form works of deserving authors. Included in our current and forthcoming list of some 350 titles are Stephen Dixon, Michael Martone, Jonathan Baumbach, Joseph McElroy, Merrrill Joan Gerber, Charles Johnson, Stephen Graham Jones and National Book Award winner Ellen Gilchrist. Dzanc provides all authors with a generous 50% royalty. It is Dzanc's plan to increase our eBook list to over 1000 titles in 2012 for readers to enjoy.


The process to convert these out of print titles is both time consuming and costly with Dzanc Books spending over $250 per title prior to their being available to readers. Raising the $3500 through this Kickstarter Project will help us offset costs and allow us to bring more books into the rEprint Series and at a more rapid pace.


We'd appreciate any donations, any spreading of the word via emails, Facebook, Twitter, etc., and thank you in advance for the help.


Dzanc rEprint Series in High Gear

On the heels of announcing the first four Merrill Joan Gerber titles comes another new trio: Christopher Kennedy's Nietzsche's Horse, Noy Holland's What begins with bird, and Michael Hickins' The Actual Adventures of Michael Missing. Later today will see two Michael Martone story collections available, and more forthcoming just about every day for the near future.

Check out the reprint page daily to see what's new!


We have also recently signed up books by Percival Everett and Charles Johnson! Look for those soon.
