Last year, 1,666 publishing projects got their funding on Kickstarter. With over $15 million pledged to publishing projects alone, Kickstarter has given the power to the people. We are creating a market where people tell companies the kinds of products they want made, rather than the previous market where corporations tell us what to want. So, to support this brilliant movement, I’m going to begin featuring cool publishing projects on this blog.
The first one is a book called Sex and Spooks and Sauvignon. This project is for a print-edition of a book already available on the Kindle. The author has collected a handful of really positive reviews, most of them visible on the Amazon UK site (in case you read “11 reviews” and went “where? I only see one!”)
The book is already available on Kindle, so it’s market tested, and you can download the excerpt from your respective Amazon storefronts. Prizes for backing the book include autographed copies, acknowledgments, psychic readings, and having yourself written into the book as a character.
So check it out and give a dollar if you can. Support Indie Projects YOU want to read. We don’t have to live in a world with ordinary fiction anymore!
Update 2/15/13: The project was successfully funded this morning!
