Jeff Miller, the author of Behind the Lines, WWI's little-known story of German occupation, Belgian resistance, and the band of Yanks who helped save millions from starvation, notified his book team today that he has kicked off a $28,500 Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to finance his proposed second book in a planned three-book series. The deadline is Dec. 31, and as of this afternoon he had raised $1,323 through seven backers. He has 21 days to go. The link to his Kickstarter campaign is All the details are there. The idea behind a Kickstarter campaign is that funders provide money and get rewards in return. In this campaign it can be as little as $15 or as much as $1,000. While I have a vested interest in the campaign's success since I would like to copyedit the second book, I think it's a great project regardless of that. The first book received a starred review from Kirkus and positive reviews from Publisher's Weekly, Foreward magazine, the Denver Post, and alternative newspaper Westword.
