About the Kickstarter:

The purpose of this Kickstarter campaign (Sept 5-21) is to create a special edition hardcover–this color-interior hardcover will ONLY be available if you back the campaign. There will also be other rewards, such as the ebook collection, and paperback, both with artwork that will not be available after the campaign. Other rewards include special stickers, bookmarks, and some spectacular stretch goals if we exceed our funding goal.

Still not familiar with Kickstarter? Here’s a description of the platform, quoted from the site itself:

“Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative ideas that are brought to life through the direct support of others.

Everything on Kickstarter must be a project with a clear goal, like making an album, a book, or a work of art. A project will eventually be completed, and something will be produced by it.

Kickstarter is not a store, backers pledge to projects to help them come to life and support a creative process. To thank their backers for their support, project creators offer unique rewards that speak to the spirit of what they’re hoping to create.”

Here’s are brief blurbs for the 4 novellas inside this collection:

Spectacle of the Spring Queen: Mae Wright has always dreamed of opening her own seamstress shop, and when she inherits a premises in the illustrious city of Soldark, she thinks her dreams have come true. But misfortune strikes the moment she steps foot in the city, when she loses her money and her things after saving her dog from falling into the port. With the help of a local theater and its mysterious director, she’ll need to get back on her feet–but will her dreams of becoming a seamstress be the same after finding a new life in the theater?

The Mechanical Masquerade: Verity Pennington has always wanted to attend the Midsummer Masquerade ball held by the elite society in Soldark. And when her best friend tells her she’s moving, and it’s their last chance to get in, Verity must tap into her creative side to pull off a mask that will allow her entrance. When a thief steals valuable clock plans from her father’s shop, and Verity knows he’s going to be at the ball, getting in isn’t just a fanciful idea anymore, but a daring escapade.

All Hallows Airship: After a childhood illness, Caz Coppersdown is finally heading out of Soldark on her own, though she doesn’t consider her great aunt’s estate anything exciting. She’s more interested in tracking down a big news story that’ll get her published in the Soldark Times, but her aunt’s All Hallows soiree doesn’t seem too newsworthy. That is, until a catastrophic blast in town points fingers at innocent people. She’ll need to dig for facts quickly, because the constables are calling…

The Clockwork Ice Dragon: Aurelia Sundon finally has a chance to get into the illustrious Inventor’s Guild. The only problem? The deadline for submitting her invention is Christmas Day. She thinks she’ll be able to swing it, until her ex-boyfriend shows her his competing invention, which has gone out of control and is covering the city in snow. As she decides whether to help him, the snow is getting deeper, and the clock is ticking..
