As many of you know (and are probably sick of me mentioning), the Kickstarter campaign I ran for my book, Maury C. Moose and The Forest Noel, expired yesterday.
I am blessed to say that not only did I reach my goal, but I surpassed it and achieved 114% if my $5,000 target!
I couldn’t have done it without the support of my 89 backers, the countless number of people who helped spread the word and, last but not least, Kickstarter.
For today’s thankful Thursday, I am very thankful for Kickstarter!
Two months ago I knew very little about Kickstarter, but now it is something that has made a huge difference in my life as an aspiring author.
Kickstarter has not only helped me raise funding, but it as also helped me raise awareness for my book. Hundreds of people have viewed my project, watched my video and liked my Facebook page. This would not have happened without Kickstarter.
I could have made a book without Kickstarter. But it wouldn’t have been nearly as good and very few people would have known about it.
Thanks to Kickstarter, I have not only a renewed excitement for my book project, but also a new following to share that excitement with.
Many people are now looking forward to seeing the book come to life and I have Kickstarter to thank.
If anyone out there is reading this and on the fence about whether to start their own Kickstarter project or not, I definitely say go for it! You will not regret it.
And when you do start, send me the link and I will be the first in line to support you because I know how great the feeling of gaining a new backer feels.
