Kickstarter campaign to assist alumna, daughter on new book

Tricia Stewart Shiu, a 1987 Baker University graduate, and her daughter, Sydney, 9, have finished their third book in a Young Adult Series called "Iron Shinto." A Kickstarter campaign has been created to help fund the editing, publishing and marketing of the book.

According to a five-star review by Amazon Hall of Fame Review Grady Harp, Tricia Stewart Shiu "has stepped into territory that few contemporary writers of novels have journeyed – concepts of many permutations of the spirit world as experienced and acted out by contemporary characters. Reading Shiu's book, "Iron Shinto," is not only immensely entertaining as a story, but also illuminating as to the concepts of the levels of existence that bond the corporeal world with the spirit world."

Baker will receive 10 percent of the proceeds from the project through the end of the campaign on Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Baker University is committed to assuring student learning, and developing confident, competent and responsible contributors to society.
