Seventh Star Press's First Kickstarter Campaign of The Writers Workshop of Science Fiction and Fantasy

Bram Stoker award-winning editor Michael Knost having a spark of inspiration  for a new project The Writers Workshop of Science Fiction and Fantasy which is a collection of essays and interviews with some of the most influential names in the industry; each article covering a specific element of the craft of writing science fiction and fantasy. Michael sought out Seventh Star Press for its supportive atmosphere toward authors, book cover artists, and small presses. They bring their own innovative style to the table.
The Writers Workshop of Science Fiction and Fantasy is a work that should be published especially now that many of us out there are huge fans of the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre and with an ever-growing fanbase.  It's a very beneficial and exciting work that could soon be out to all readers interested.  Seventh Press has one major deterrent at the moment and that is funding since their original projected 2012 publishing schedule is full. So some help from all you Scifi/Fantasy Lovers is needed.
Scifi and Fantasy book lovers unite!
