Like many authors Betty Adams has foregone the traditional publishing route for the up and coming Malachite Quills Publishers.

A large part of the difference in this little publisher that could is the fact that they run BookStart , a crowdfunding operation much like Kickstart. By doing this the publisher can measure the popularity of the work before they put in the effort of printing and publishing the story. Results tell and after three years they are still out there popping out titles.

Betty's story (working title Dying Embers) will soon be put up on their page and subjected to the merciless jury of the market.
