About Us

Epic Slant Press LLC is a small publishing company based in North Carolina that currently focuses on books and games. Positivity is the driving force that guides each and every project that the company takes on. The team strongly believes that with a positive outlook anyone can achieve great things. Epic Slant Press LLC strives to support small and local businesses, aid fellow entrepreneurs, and donate a portion of all profits to charities and good causes.


Why Positivity?

Think of a time when you went back to a store or restaurant and an employee there remembered your name. That simple act probably gave you warm feelings (and might help retain your business!). How about a day when all of your customers were angry or just apathetic, and then you had that one customer that was cheerful and grateful for your help? Positive encounters like these make lasting impressions and it is our mission to better serve the community by creating as many of them as possible.

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a funding platform for content creators that allows them to directly receive support from their fans. Fans will receive special rewards from the content creators in exchange for their support. In many ways Kickstarter is like a “pre-purchase” system with the key difference being that the items supporters receive will likely never be available anywhere else.

Kickstarter projects are created with a financial goal in mind. This goal is set by the content creator and is based on what is necessary to bring their work to market successfully. The project is also given a set duration and must reach its financial goal within that time frame. When an individual pledges to support a project no money is exchanged. Money will only be exchanged if the project has successfully met its goal by the end of the time frame that is set. If the project does not succeed no money is ever exchanged.
