You may remember back in March when we told you about Surcee Press, a new local indie publishing company that was raising money to publish their first book. Well, they got the funds they needed via Kickstarter (and some of our generous readers, no doubt), and they’ve been working away up in the mountains, putting together A New Guide to Charleston.

The hand-bound book is filled with contributions from 29 local artists and writers, and it’s available for pre-order through June 1. Ordering in advance saves you $10, bringing the grand total of the book to $50. It will be available in a few local stores after June 1 for $60. Only 100 books are available, and each copy comes with a digital download of DJ Party Dad’s mix "Step Inside This House." Here’s where you can snag it.

Also, mark your calendars for their official release party at Heirloom Book Co. on June 1. There will be libations and live music from 6-9 p.m.
