introducing Kaylie Jones Books


KJBooks“Where dedicated writers take a stand.”

Wilkes faculty member Kaylie Jones has launched a new imprint with Akashic Books!

From the Kaylie Jones Books website:

Kaylie Jones Books is a New York based imprint that will create a cooperative of dedicated emerging and established writers who will play an integral part in the publishing process, from reading manuscripts, editing, offering advice, to advertising the upcoming publications. The list of brilliant novels unable to find homes within the mainstream is growing every day. It is our hope to publish books that bravely address serious issues—historical or contemporary—relevant to society today. Just because a book addresses serious topics and may include tragic events does not mean that the narrative cannot be amusing, fast-paced, plot-driven, and lyrical all at once.

The first book to be released is Unmentionables, by Laurie Loewenstein. The story takes place on the 1917 Chautauqua circuit, in rural Illinois, on the verge of US involvement in WWI. While the larger topics are race and women’s suffrage, the characters and their courageous stands against oppression and reactionary bigotry could not be more relevant today.

    Bears, coyotes, raccoons, and even wolves can be quite unwelcome in
    your campsite, especially if they are helping themselves to your food or your dog’s food. While extremely functional, backpacks of this nature are not what you should to take along for a camping trip which requires you to hold more items. Found with hill farms precisely set in Betws-y-Coed, the main attraction for campers is still the famous peak of Tryfan.

    a Bruce Lee workout includes stretching, bending,
    running, dipping, kicking, jumping, traditional
    muscle building exercises, weight lifting, rope skipping, medicine ball
    handling, etc. Cucumber contains sterols which can help to lower cholesterol and prevent
    carbohydrates from converting to body fat. Then leave it
    a while until your tummy lets you know that you’re hungry again before opting for a healthy snack.
