It’s been almost a year since Neon Sunrise was started officially, and what a year it’s been! We had our first new book launched through a successful Kickstarter campaign and we began the journey into becoming a full fledged publishing company supporting independent artists and authors. We’ve been quietly planning our next steps into 2019 and beyond and we’re confident
that we have some terrific and poignant material that is ready to be made available in the coming months!
First up, we have some amazing poetry by talented Florida poet Jason Lee! We’ve been impressed by the heart and wit that Jason pours into his work and knew that, once he was ready, we wanted to work with him to bring his work to a life beyond his stellar spoken word performances. In our discussions about his art and the print medium, we determined that there were three distinct collections that he was ready to share and we couldn’t be happier to be the ones to help bring them to the masses!
To facilitate the production of these volumes, we will be launching a new Kickstarter campaign for the first two collections, BLOOD:MOON and Making Sense of Shadows. The Kickstarter will be live on Tuesday June 4th and will run through the 4th of July holiday weekend! In the coming weeks, we’ll have regular updates on the progress towards our launch date which will include more information on the collections themselves as well as on Jason and what makes him tick! Make sure you Mark your Calendars now!
Secondly, we are moving ahead with the production of our charity anthology to help raise awareness and fight the plague that is human trafficking. Neon Sunrise is about making a difference in the world we’re a part of, and we can think of few things in life that need more attention and awareness raised. We will be reaching out to several local and national organizations that we can partner with and we will be accepting submissions for written content through July 30th, 2019. The goal is to have the material edited and constructed into a single volume that will be made available to the partner organizations for use as fundraising items to support their ongoing missions. We will launch a Kickstarter campaign for this project in Late September 2019.
