I put together a short little trailer for my upcoming book, Almost Super. I've also started a kickstarter campaign.
What is a kickstarter campaign? I'm glad you asked; it's kind of a cool concept. If you have an idea or a product but you don't quite have the funding, you can post it on Kickstarter.com If people like your idea, they make a donation. Often there are rewards for certain levels of donation. If enough money is donated, then the idea is funded.
In my case, I'm raising money to publish a small print-run of Almost Super, and offering signed and numbered copies of the book as a reward.
Why not go the traditional route to publishing? Well, I am. But that route is a long one. My first book came out 16 months after I signed my contract. Almost Super is done, and I'm far to impatient. I want people to read it already! I'm hoping to find an agent and publisher for this book, but in the meantime you can get a copy much earlier by going to the kickstarter site. And if this book ever makes the big time, you'll have a true first edition copy.
Interested in what the book is about? Or would you like to read the first chapter? If so, head on over to AlmostSuper.org.
If you're not interested, then you should at least check this out. Because it's awesome.
