For the past two years, I have been writing and compiling an anthology of short stories, quotes, and nonfiction interludes in a collection named, “Human.” At this juncture, I now have enough material to finish my anthology, but now I need backers. I have decided to self-publish this go-around, because I wanted to get people involved–I want external support to make this a successful project, and with the popularity of KickStarter rising I decided that it would be a good idea to use it to finance the self-publication of “Human.”
I am trying to raise $3,800 to pay for the publishing, marketing, and editing services of Amazon’s CreateSpace, the rewards that the backers will receive, and the fees that KickStarter and AmazonPayments will deduct on a successful campaign. I want this to be a success; a first of many.
Check out my KickStarter campaign page by clicking the KickStarter logo below and please donate what you can. $8 will nab you an electronic copy of the anthology and $20 will get you a signed paper back with the rewards only climbing from there. However, feel free to donate even just a dollar, or at the very least spread the word. Share this post on your blog or your Facebook/Twitter account–I would greatly appreciate it!
Thank you for reading this post, and I hope you will give this project a chance. I look forward to reading your name in the ‘Thank You’ section of the short story anthology, “Human.”
