In the last few days I was approached to highlight an appeal to support libraries and of course I wasn’t going to say “no”. Please read on…
Legacy Books Press was founded in 2007 as a micro press specializing in non-fiction history books – books about those corners of history that aren’t always explored, but still helped shape the world we live in today. Our titles include the critically acclaimed The Secret History of Star Wars, by Michael Kaminski, The War that Changed the World, by John-Allen Price, and Bayonets and Blobsticks, by Aaron Taylor Miedema. They are wonderful books by amazing authors. But, there was a problem.
In the last year, we have began our transition into a small press, hiring The Cadence Group to handle the sales effort. With Cadence’s track record, we were certain that we could finally reach out to the libraries and give these books – and their authors – the attention they deserved. A campaign was planned to bring these wonderful books to the attention of libraries across North America. The books for the campaign were printed and shipped to The Cadence Group – everything was ready. And then, disaster struck. Due to circumstances beyond anybody’s control, Legacy Books Press ended up underfunded by over $4,000. There was no choice – for the business to continue operations, the library campaign had to be put on an indefinite hold.
But with your help, we can raise the money to help bring these amazing books onto library shelves, where they can be enjoyed by thousands upon thousands of readers across North America. For you kind contributions, we have a number of perks, including e-books, paper books, and donating books on your behalf to a library of your choice.
