Kaylie Jones Books Digit

Edited by:

The free The Kaylie Jones Books Digit features excerpts from our three Kaylie Jones Books releases.



In January, 2014 we released Unmentionables by Laurie Loewenstein, the first installment in our Kaylie Jones Books imprint. Curated by award-winning author Kaylie Jones, Kaylie Jones Books is a cooperative of dedicated emerging and established writers who play an integral part in the publishing process. The increasingly commercial nature of mainstream publishing has made it difficult for literary writers to find a home for their more serious, thought-provoking works, and it is our mission to publish books that bravely address important issues—historical or contemporary—relevant to society today. Unmentionables was followed by the e-first release Foamers by Justin Kassab, and continues this month with Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night by Barbara J. Taylor. All three books are excerpted in our Kaylie Jones Books Digit.

The paperback editions of Unmentionables is available at a 50% discout on our website, and the e-books of all three titles are available wherever e-books are sold.

The Kaylie Jones Books Digit is the latest release in our Akashic Digits (Digital Excerpts from the Akashic Catalog) program. We release a new digit every month, featuring excerpts from front and backlist titles. They’re a great way to explore our catalog more deeply.
