Crowdsourcing 201

To begin, there are two pledge levels that I forgot to mention before, but I’ve seen them for nearly every project I’ve joined, so they’re deserving of mention: “$1”: you want to help out, but you just want to “get your feet wet”.

Even though my Indiegogo campaign didn’t make funding, I still intend to finish the novel. Most of the people who did pledge I know in…Continue Reading “Back to Work!”

NaNoWriMo 2013: My First Post

Going to a GoGo…

Indiegogo, that is. I’ve talked about my plans for Kindle (then later Createspace) publishing in 2013. I’ve researched crowd funding options, and made a very easy to make choice. Kickstarter has been a big deal of late. I’ve backed several projects on this service. I can’t put a project on it however for a very…Continue Reading “Going to a GoGo…”
