Fully fund your book using crowdfunding on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo

More authors and illustrators are discovering the power of crowdfunding — the act of raising a tiny bit of money from a large group of people — to launch their books.

When you crowdfund your book, not only do you have more funds to create high-quality books, but you offer your readers something they can’t get when they simply buy your book online.

Crowdfunding on Kickstarter or IndieGoGo generates a buzz of excitement and offers readers a chance to be part of the book creation process

Crowdfunding authors have found that their backers are their best fans, help spread the excitement about future book launches, and generate energy around a book launch that is unparalleled to traditional book launches. 

I love working with enthusiastic and creative authors who aren’t afraid to try something new. 

Let’s get your book out into the world with creative marketing strategies and awesome bonus rewards for your readers.
