Daniel Haight | 49 comments Forgive me if posting a preview link is bad karma - I know that you guys are well-versed in what Kickstarter projects get funded and I would really appreciate your insight on my crowdfunding effort for my sci-fi book series.
The Flotilla Kickstarter is designed to help me connect my book series with the larger reading/sci-fi community by funding some concept art and PR efforts when I release my book in November. Would you mind telling me whether this project, in its current form is supportable? Shareable?
I've done crowdfunding efforts in the past - I'm not always the best judge of what people will support so I would appreciate your feedback and thoughts about my work thus far - here is the preview link:
Thank you!
Best wishes,

Edit: Wrong link, sorry about that guys I was having some technical difficulties. Try this link

Stephanie (einahpets_reads) I wasn't able to view your Kickstarter preview when I clicked on that link. It just redirected me to the Kickstarter homepage...

Robert Defendi | 54 comments I don't think I can access it. It redirects me to the main kickstarter page.

Ethan | 38 comments Well, the text could use a good proofread - I saw some missing words and punctuation. While I understand typos happen, it's not the sort of thing that makes me likely to support what is essentially a writing project.

Also, the TL;DR doesn't tell me anything specific about the project: TL;DR Hey I have this book, this is what it's about, this is why you should back it, and now here's the various cool stuff you can get if you believe in it enough to pledge at more than the base level. Keep reading for more details

It should actually summarize what it's about, why I should back it, etc., rather than just tell me that's what the rest of the post is going to tell me.

Just my thoughts. Good luck man.

Daniel Haight | 49 comments Thanks duder - actually the TL;DR is supposed to be FULL of web page links that invite you to learn more without burying you. I'm working on populating them all right now and I'll send them over when I'm done. Thanks for the feedback!

I appreciate your feedback on my kickstarter from a few days ago. I've made some updates and improvements. Before I go live, would you mind giving it a pre-launch check?
Link is right here:
Thanks so much!
