‘Q is for Queens’ Children’s Book Featured on Kickstarter

LICNYC.com blogger Amol Sarva hopes to raise $8,000 on Kickstarter for his ABC children’s book, Q is for Queens. Most of the funds will be used to cover the cost of printing.

With this book, Sarva hopes to educate the world on all of the various landmarks and activities within New York City’s biggest borough. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“I’ve got the art part figured out and most of the icons sorted – so that part is well on its way. I still need to find the right printer to partner with here in Queens, so hopefully that part goes well. A is for Arthur Ashe, B is for Bayside, C is for Cyndi Lauper…R is for Ramones or maybe Rockaway or maybe both! Lots to do as you can see.”

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.
