In August, Amazon Payments forced unglue.it to suspend campaigns. Since then, unglue.it has a new payment option (Stripe), is implementing new features, signing new rights holders, and releasing its first unglued eBook. Unglue.it is back in business.
The five titles are being unglued are: Budding Reader Book Set 1: Cat And Rat (Ten Books) by Melinda Thompson with Melissa Ferrell, a set of books designed to help children learn to read. Love Like Gumbo by Nancy Rawles, a National Book Award winning coming-of-age story which was one of the first popular novels to tackle this subject from the perspective of a lesbian of colour. Obama Search Words by Stephen Black, a genre-bending, multimedia collage about the President. So You Want to be a Librarian by Lauren Pressley, a book aimed at students who wonder if a library career is right for them. The Third Awakening by Dennis Weiser, a macabre, eco-friendly, erotic sci-fi fantasy satire about corporate culture and the superior beings who come to save Earth from itself and human beings from their dark side.
