Kickstarting Tu Publishing Friday December 4, 2009 • Howard Tayler A good friend of ours Stacy Whitman is getting ready to launch a small press. Tu Publishing will focus on multicultural science fiction and fantasy. Tu's mission statement expresses a desire to include people of all cultures in the imaginative possibilities opened by the science fiction and fantasy genres. In order to get Tu Publishing off the ground, Stacy has set up a fund raiser through Kickstarter. Friends of Stacy's have also donated many very cool things to a fund raising auction. The auction in particular is worth looking at. It includes such things as a specially painted Schlock mini, line editing on your text by a pro editor, out of print children's books, hand crafted mugs, a custom photo video, a year of advertising on YA book central, and many other very cool things. You'll want to go look now though. Some of what is offered might make great Christmas gifts and the auctions all close on December 9th.
