Alex (asato) Crowdfunding is in. Does it work? Have you tried it?

Inkshares.com
Inkshares is kind of a trimmed down Kickstarter for books wherein you try to get preorders and then they publish your book. [You] get "35% of net receivables, what is left over after deducting production and distribution costs. [We] do not charge crowdfunding fees like Kickstarter and Indiegogo." That's after after 250 or 750 (full publishing tier) pre-orders are sold.

It's running a horror contest until 31 October:

Tablo.io
(based in Melbourne, Australia)
Write and publish on their platform and publish to bookstores using their system. 20% commission to Tablo on top of any commission of distributors and retailers such as the 30% commission received by the Apple iBooks Store.

Inkitt.com
(Hybrid publisher) They use reader feedback and algorithms to find marketable books that you publish to their website; then they negotiate a publishing deal w/"A-list" publishers, such as Penguin Random House. 85% royalty. (too good to be true? several links don't work. although the first link on their press releases page is to inkitt's content winner. caveat emptor.

Celtix.com
Script writing and project management for film production. I tried the script writing part with a friend. Pretty easy to use.

Patreon.com
Everyone knows about Patreon, right? I'll just include it here for completeness.

Nik Krasno | 13438 comments Haven't tried, but I believe this concept is worth trying, for supposedly it gives you an opportunity to check marketability early on and, provided you have one, offers you a deal

Segilola Salami (segilolasalami) | 405 comments I think you still need to put in the effort to share your work (even with wattpad), just publishing on them does not automatically give you thousands of readers
