Many of you have been enjoying my crowdfunding and Kickstarter series of posts. Well, it was all leading up to this day when I put my money where my mouth is (and hopefully you do too:) and try the whole thing out for myself.
If you aren’t familiar, Kickstarter is a crowdfunding site that uses the power of the internet and word-of-mouth to provide backing for creative projects. Payments are made securely through Amazon, so if you’ve ever bought something from them, you are already set to back me.
Haven’t seen me for a while (or ever?), be sure to check out the project video featuring ME. I’m an introvert, so this is sort of like catching a glimpse of the nocturnal and ever elusive Kiwi.
Throughout the thirty day project I will be running special give-aways for those who back me in addition to the rewards listed on the site.
Anyone who backs me today, my first day out of the chute, will be entered in a draw to win a signed copy of Andromeda SpaceWays Inflight Magazine #42, featuring my YA fantasy novella, Over the Rim (as well as eleven other great stories). The beautiful and surreal cover of the magazine was designed to illustrate my story.
Please go check out my project, back me, and spread the word to friends and family through e-mail and social media, or by clicking the share buttons at the bottom of this page.
