September 27th, 2022–Rock Hill, South Carolina – For Immediate Release
Mocha Memoirs Press is excited to introduce our latest crowdfunding campaign Blackened Roots: An Anthology of the Undead.
About Blackened Roots
Blackened Roots is an anthology of stories written by Black writers from all over the world featuring tales of non-traditional zombies. Think The Girl With All The Gifts, not The Walking Dead.
The anthology is co-edited by Stoker-nominated and award-winning editor and writer Nicole Givens Kurtz at Mocha Memoirs Press, and award-winning producer and editor Tonia Ransom at NIGHTLIGHT. At least three stories from the anthology will air on the NIGHTLIGHT podcast.
First and foremost, we need to pay our writers. If we hit our goal, we’ll be able to pay all of our writers the professional wage of 5 cents per word, totaling $4,500 in payments to authors.
Aside from paying writers, we’ll also need to pay a designer to create the cover for the e-book and print book. This will cost about $500.
The remainder of the funds will be used to cover IndieGoGo’s fees, perk fulfillment, and marketing. We’ll also set aside about $1500 for marketing.
