You! Yes, YOU! Diligent, lovely reader of my blog! I have an opportunity for you. Trust me, you don't wanna miss this. Whatsit? It's a Kickstarter. What's a Kickstarter? You know what to do to find out. ; )
It’s a Kickstarter.
What’s a Kickstarter?
Well, it’s a starter the operates by a downward kick….
Wait. No, we’re not talking motorcycles here. We’re talking Kickstarter, a funding platform for creative projects.
Artists get to present their projects.
Beautiful people like you get to help bring those projects to life.
My friend and fellow writer, Aaron Pogue has a best-selling indie fantasy novel: Taming Fire. It’s a fun, rollicking adventure story of magic and dragons and love and redemption and some surprisingly gritty moments that make ya think.
The Dragonswarm is the sequel to Taming Fire, and lemme tell ya, this book is gonna be a read-and-a-half. I’m helping to edit it right now, and it’s so epic-fantasy-yummy, it’s addictive.
What would you say to throwing a few bucks at The Dragonswarm to help get this novel into your happy reader hands? Aaron’s got a Dragonswarm Kickstarter just for you!
Here’s what Aaron has to tell you about it:
The goal of the campaign is to pay the production costs of publishing an indie novel. I won’t beg and plead with you to share your hard-earned money, because I’ll be publishing this book even if the campaign isn’t funded. I’ve been covering the costs myself for more than a year now.
No, this campaign (and every one that will follow) is an opportunity for those of you who want to be a part of it.
For those of you who want to see me (or any of our other writers) getting to be a full-time writer instead of holding down a day job to pay the bills.
For those of you who want to support a community that creates art as a thing of worth (not a thing of commercial value).
In short, if you want to help me keep doing what I’m doing, KickStarter gives me an easy way to accept your support. And it lets me respond with some very cool rewards. If you want, you can just look it as a way to pre-order your signed copy of The Dragonswarm, sent straight to your door.
Did you catch the part about rewards? Oh yeah. There are rewards. And they’re all book-related. (And some of them involve this [by lil ol’me!].)
So click on over to Aaron’s Kickstarter, watch the video, and help make some cramazing art.
And hurry! The Kickstarter ends in only 35 hours!
Support the artists to support the arts.
