A Steampunk Picture Book is On Kickstarter


Ryan Dunlap hopes to raise $6,000 for his steampunk picture book, The Littlest Clockwork. The story follows the friendship of a young boy and a clockwork girl.

The funds will be used to cover costs of self-publishing, printing, and shipping. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

The Littlest Clockwork is a children’s picture book featured in the novel, The Wind Merchant, a steampunk fantasy novel I Kickstarted back in early 2012. In the novel, the children’s book goes by the title The Littlest Elder, which is another name for a Clockwork person in that world.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
