Kickstarter for Authors

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.

The Lustre Virtual Launch Party Guest Book: Dark Impressions by Rosa Sophia

Guest book: Dark Impressions by Rosa sophia


Genre: Dark Fantasy

Synopsis:

In “Grave Chesapeake”, a young girl discovers that the scariest place–and the most comforting–is in the middle of the bay on a dark night. In “The Landing”, an old woman loses her mind, and an old man loses his footing. And finally, in “Photograph”, Claudette finds the horrors of her own past confined within a negative. In these short tales, Rosa Sophia tackles the darker sides of the human condition–loneliness, depression and most of all, a fear of facing the person that stares back from the other side of the mirror.
