8 Thoughts on Crowd-Funding

Posted on Oct 15, 2012 in Blog, Publishing, Writing | 0 comments

As you likely noticed, if you pay attention to me on the web at all, I’m currently running a Kickstarter for my second book, Hungry Ghost. I’m raising funds to pay my cover designer and my editor, both of whom worked for free on my first book, Lunatic Fringe.  I’m closing in on 1/2 funding as of this writing and I’m over the moon at the response from eager readers all over the country. It took a lot of hand-wringing for me to do this, however. I was raised as a self-sufficient...

The one year anniversary of Lunatic Fringe’s release is coming up in September, so I’m taking some time to reflect on the past year and the things I’ve learned. It’s pretty easy to reflect on all my trials and failings, so instead, I’m going to kick off this month with a celebration of the things I did right. 17 things I did right:   1) Made some fucking awesome swag.
