A few weeks ago, my hubby suggested a site called Kickstarter to help me raise money for my upcoming launch this summer. It sounded like a great idea, but also scary. I found it hard to picture how an author would accomplish a successful project asking for other people’s money on this site.
Then, Rosa Sophia gave me a great link to an author’s site who had posted a project for funding on Kickstarter:
There are a lot of people that this filtered through!
This article gave me the information connection I needed to start my own project! I really needed some concrete examples of how this site was used specifically for books. I think the site felt a little overwhelming to me because there is SO MUCH there. This post gave me the boost I needed!
Here is the link to my preview: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/523666041/1833955108?token=a9bf8e88
Please let me know what you think about this preview! Does it look like something you would contribute to? Am I missing information? Could I word it better? Is the photo too abstract, or does it represent well my concept? (This isn’t my cover art.) Is the ball of energy too orange?
I plan to make a video, but my voice is all scratchy with a cold so I’ll try that in the next few days.
It looks good, Kate! Although, I would make the graphic more catchy if I were you. It doesn’t seem to match the title.
