Hello everyone. I’ve been getting ready to launch my kickstarter campaign!
What is kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a funding platform where creators can share and gather interest on a particular creative project they’d like to launch.
Every project is independently crafted while friends, fans and total strangers offer to fund them in return for rewards or the finished product itself.
Creators can set up a page to display all the details of their project and prototypes using text, video and photos to tell viewers about it. Project creators set a funding goal and a deadline, plus different levels of rewards funders can receive by pledging specific amounts. (The more they pledge, the bigger the reward.)
Once enough people have funded the project by pledging a small or large amount of money to meet the creators’ goal by the deadline, development and production of those projects can be carried out.
Basically it’s a platform that allows you to invest in my project, helping me to get my project off the ground- your support will allow me to get my book printed and shipped, pay my illustrator, pay for marketing and much more!
Backing a Project: How can you back my project and preorder a signed book?
Pledging money to a project is easy. All you have to do is click the green “Back this Project” button on my project page. Funders are then asked to select an amount and a reward. All your information gets filled out through Amazon’s checkout system.
Credit cards are never charged until after the deadline for the project has passed.
If the project doesn’t reach its funding goal, your credit card is never charged. Whatever the outcome, Kickstarter sends all backers an email right after the project end date.
So stay tuned! Sign up on this website to receive an update or follow me on Facebook or Instagram. It has been a wild ride for my family and I and we are super excited to take the next step in this journey- all with your help!
