Hello, we’re Jonas (writer) and Sage (publisher/Sweet Candy Press). We want to tell you about Jonas’s book, The Greatest Most Traveling Circus. It is set to be released in March 2014 by Sweet Candy Press. It will be Jonas’s debut book and Sweet Candy Press’s fourth title.

The Greatest Most Traveling Circus is an anthology of stories about vampires and superheroes, gypsy curses, giant killer robots, psychics, love potions, bar fights over stolen angel wings, imaginary monsters, magical traveling pants and the devil as a red-headed con man. But it’s also a novel about overcoming depression, struggling with suicide, handling loss, and trying to find meaning in a world where the supernatural isn’t the hardest part of life to accept. Above all, it’s about finding friendship when it is least expected--but most needed.

This is the first volume of a two-part story that would later continue as the less surreal, more auto-biographical zine Cheer the Eff Up.

About Sweet Candy Press:

Sweet Candy Press is run by Sage Adderley in Olympia,Washington. Sage has been running Sweet Candy Distro for over nine years, and recently decided to take a leap into small publishing. She is no stranger to the hard work and determination it takes to pull off this exciting venture.

In August 2013, the press released their first title, Heavy Hangs the Head by Taryn Hipp and is currently planning the release of their second title, Everybody Else’s Girl by Sarah Sawyers-Lovett.

Sweet Candy Press uses a local family-owned printing company that has been going strong for thirty-seven years.

Why do I want to support Jonas?

Jonas’s writing is that of a creative old soul. His voice is distinct and raw in the most beautiful way that raw writing can be presented. His characters dance through their life events emitting words that leave us all pondering and questioning. He makes readers feel. He makes us think. Jonas serves a platter of hectic issues, but feeds it to us gently, allowing us to carefully digest each bite.

The funds raised will go towards the printing of The Greatest Most Traveling Circus. We are hoping to raise $2,000 to print 500–600 copies of the book.

Jonas has put together a wonderful variety of perks that include postcards, Cheer the Eff Up zines, copies of The Greatest Most Traveling Circus, personalized zines, lifetime subscriptions, AND oil paintings!

Thanks in advance for checking out our creative project. We are grateful for your support and encouragement.
