Today is the final installment in my five-part series on why I decided to crowdfund my next picture book through Kickstarter with a HYBRID (not self, not traditional) publishing model. Today’s topic is demonstrating demand.
Crowdfunding gives an author a chance to determine whether or not there is enough demand for his/her book (and/or whether or not they have a large enough platform to support it). Here is a short video with my thoughts on why this is a good thing (in spite of my grimace!).
Thank you so much to everyone who followed along with me this week!
I expect to launch the actual fundraising part of this experiment in early November. Stay tuned for that and make sure you sign up for my mailing list if you want to keep up with my progress from now on. You’ll even get a free ebook on Submissions if you do! 🙂
