We hope you’ve heard by now about START HERE, our book project designed to help you read your way into authors you’ve been wanting to try but haven’t because you haven’t known where to start. We’re just about three weeks into our Kickstarter to publish START HERE, and we are steadily adding to the awesome line-up of writers, critics, and bloggers who will contribute chapters about the authors they are passionate and expert about.

We’re thrilled to announce today that bestselling thriller author Linda Fairstein has signed on to write a START HERE chapter, joining celebrity contributors Joe Hill and Erin Morgenstern. She will write a chapter explaining the best 3-4 piece reading sequence for getting into Edgar Allan Poe’s body of work.

As of this posting, we are at $14,637 toward our $25K goal with 387 backers and 11 days to go. Check out the START HERE Kickstarter page for more details.
