“N is for New York”- What Happens When Traditional Publishers Take an Untraditional Path?

CHICAGO, Illinois – October 20, 2015 – When Maria Kernahan and Michael Schafbuch, owners of Dry Climate Studios, needed capital to fund their newest book in their successful “Alphabet Cities” series, they turned to crowdfunding instead of traditional funding options.   

“N is for New York,” the latest title in the hugely successful series, will be their first to be funded through a Kickstarter campaign.

“We’ve been growing so quickly, and needed funding to cover the printing and distribution costs on our next title,” said Michael Schafbuch, one of the owners of Dry Climate.  “I’m pretty sure we’re the only publisher with our distribution company that has a Kickstarter campaign going.” 

Instead of reaching out to banks or private equity, they are reaching out to their readers. Backers can pre-order a copy of “N is for New York” and upgrade to receive other unique rewards, including the opportunity to get their likeness featured in the book.  

Every Kickstarter supporter will also gain insider access to the creative process. From the initial sketches to the final galleys of the book, they will get a step-by-step take on what it takes to create a book. 

“We’re so excited to turn our focus on New York,” said Maria.  “Our other books have been so well received, but wanted to make sure we were ready for the big time!” 

A portion of the sales from “N is for New York,” will be donated to support literacy programs in New York City through Donor’s Choose.  The all-or-nothing Kickstarter campaign goal is to raise $3,000 by November 12, 2015.
