Daniel Haight | 6 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

I funded my own Kickstarter campaign successfully awhile ago, although my target amount was much lower. That is how I paid Amazon to do what they do to publish my book.

From what I can tell, your reason for fundraising it totally plausible. But I think, if you made your goal (and the rewards) a lot clearer in the video, people would be more drawn to it. I'd focus on your stuff, rather than the works of other success stories that you (and many of us) admire.

Not that I think it is bad no mention them! But your work and a few specific points should be the focal point.

That is my penny's worth! I hope it helps a little.

Molly. :)
