So I’ve been looking at Kickstarter’s web site. I see some successful campaigns that I would not have expected and I see some unsuccessful ones that I can understand why they didn’t make it.
I’m undecided. My needs, I believe would be much less than what some asked for. I really can’t decide if this is for me or not.
I looked at the successful ones. I looked at fiction funding. I did not see any historical fiction at all. None that I was aware of anyway.
I have a friend who got funded for a non-fiction book. Anyone know anyone that had been funded by using Kickstarter?
I’m curious about the good and bad of it, if you have any advice for me.
I think it is a good thing. I think it has helped a number of people get their projects going. But is it for me? Hmm.
What do you think?
Let me give you this by way of description.
My novel is an interracial love story set at the end of the Civil War. It is character driven. It is a romance but also involves thoughts and images of war. It brings out the difficulty blacks had during this time period. For instance the Black Codes, miscegenation, the KKK, some politics, a character that passes for white.
Tell me what you think.
