Another good review, this one from the Midwest Book Review. And the most exciting part is, they are recommending the book for libraries!
“K.S. Wright nicely contrasts Klara’s personal revelations and experiences with the rising conflicts and challenges of her world. Her encounter with demons, rituals, and matters of her own heart (“I don’t believe I’m capable of even knowing what love is.“) makes for a satisfying contrast between high-octane adventure and psychological development as Klara moves into positions of power she’d never imagined . . .”
“. . . a satisfying milieu of discovery and unexpected twists of plot to keep the romance elusive and fresh and the action spirited . . .”
“Libraries and readers seeking stories that represent the intersection of fantasy, history, romance, and psychological growth will welcome the opportunity to follow Klara on her life-changing journey through a world in flux.”
We just launched Klara’s Journey on Kickstarter! On the Kickstarter website you’ll find:
A Live-Action Video Trailer
Music, Images, & Video Content
On Kickstarter you’ll find other videos describing the project, my project budget, and images of the map and calendar created for the novel. You’ll also get a sneak peek at the initial inspiration for the novel. (Hint: It all started with a song!) I even posted the first editorial review . . . and it’s good. Really, really good!
The Kickstarter site allows you to pre-order both the ebook and paperback. Books will ship the last week of May. As a bonus, all paperbacks ordered through this campaign will be autographed before they’re shipped.
Other Backer Rewards include:

Ever wonder how books get reviewed before they’re published?
Publishers order advance reader copies (ARCs) to send to literary review agencies, book bloggers, newspapers, journals, and magazines with the hope of getting favorable reviews. ARCs are also sent to bookstores to encourage store owners to carry the title once it’s published.
ARCs are not a completed copy of the book. There still might be typos or formatting errors. By printing several copies of the book ahead of time, these errors can be caught and corrected before the final version is published.
Receiving a box of ARCs is a major step toward publication!
