CrowdFunding 101 for Authors and Books Show 9-26-2013

This week on Author U - Your Guide to Book Publishing, Judith Briles will explore crowdfunding for authors. 

It takes a village to create a book … and money. Money for editing; money for cover design; money for interior design and layout; money for marketing; money for publicity; money for printing books; money for education to become a savvy author; money for … 

Yes, it takes money. Thousands of dollars. Unless you have plenty of  money to fund your book; an awesome friend or relative that loves what you do and is glad to write checks to support you and your journey; or you win the lottery … you need to noodle ways to underwrite your book project(s). 

CrowdFunding is a way to get money … other people’s money that comes to you as a “gift.” Oh, you will pay taxes because you will report it as revenues … but you don’t have to pay it back. That’s a Happy Dance for we authors. 

Your take-aways include: 

  • Learn what CrowdFunding is and how it can work for you.
  • IDing which source to use and how it works and how you get paid.
  • How to structure your campaign and manage your roll-out.
  • How to create perks/rewards that deliver buy-in.
  • Timelines and how to develop partners to support your quest.
  • Using Virtual Assistants to do preliminary and ongoing campaign work. 

In this fast pace, yet very hands on session, you will come away with an array of “ahas” and an entire new way to think of how to “bank” your book project.
