Writers Emily Gould and Ruth Curry, the two women behind the Emily Books project, hope to raise $40,000.00 on Kickstarter. They plan to use the funds to revamp their company website. We’ve embedded a video about the project above.
Here’s more from the Kickstarter page: “We’ve decided to partner with Rumors, Andy Pressman’s design firm, to create the Emilybooks.com of our dreams that we’ve just described. We’re impressed with their work on the Verso and Melville House websites and we want to compete in the same league as those guys. With these advancements, our hope is that we’ll attract more readers and subscribers and be able to grow, to reach more readers, to materially support the careers of the writers we love, and to make sure Emily Books lives long into the future.”
