I made my second start at writing thanks to Kickstarter. It gave me the funds to move forward, to get my books written, and pushed me forward to be seen and picked up by my publisher. So when I was approached the other day by another author looking to do the same, I took the time to read through his writing to see if I should help.
Darrell Drake’s been doing some mighty fine cooking. I’ve read the first few chapters of his current draft and I want to read it all. I’m going to hold off … but that’s only because I want to save it for the final, clean, fully revised book. I’ve put some of my very few munnies down on the barrel for this project and I suggest you take a look at it yourself.
Here’s the link:
Though it was fully funded on day 1, so this isn’t a super huge shock. It’s still pretty awesome to have pulled it off and it will ensure that the writing will go on and gain more traction!
Thank you to everyone who shared, liked, and spread the word about the Kickstarter! Every bit helped!
Now, it’s time to plan!
The title says it all!
The good part is that we have already met and exceeded our initial goal. Hurray!
The bad part is that we are just INCHES from a $750 stretch goal. $15 US from not only funding more work, but netting all the contributors free posters with the book art and two special works done exclusively for the Kickstarter.
So, if you want to contribute, now is the time! If you can’t contribute, share!
You can check out the project by clicking the My Kickstarter tab at the top of this blog or by clicking HERE.
So it’s on now. I’ve revamped the project with up-to-date art and info, as well as a project video.
Also, I lowered the goal to under what we raised last time so ….
Let’s do it!
… no cigar. The Kickstarter has just ended and we came up short. I’ll be honest, though, I am impressed that we did raise over $750 US … not bad for a starving author who has only just been published.
There’s hope for the future, though. And as many of you know, we authors are nothing if not resilient. Picking myself back up and getting back on the bike, here are the plans for the future:
I’ll be frank.
I’m sure you don’t read this blog to hear me beg and plead for Kickstarter donations. You want to read about writing, politics, or my novels, right? So, with that said, I apologize ahead of time for this, but …
OMFG! 24 hours to go! Not there yet! *runs in circles, pinwheeling arms, until collapsing in a twitching heap*
If you had ever considered donating, even a little, but were procrastinating, now is the time to stop that and chip in. We aren’t to the last minute yet but …. that isn’t far off.
There’s little to say other than that. Four and a half days on the clock and only $285 US from the goal posts.
A mass of small donations from a large number of people can make all the difference so take a look. Consider. Support if you can, spread the word if you can’t.
