What Is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a crowd funding web site designed to help get creative projects off the ground.
Ordinary, everyday people have an opportunity to sponsor and be a part of a creative project. From art, dance, book writing, film making to design, production and creation of cutting edge, life changing products.
It allows people with an idea to raise funds in a unique way. The artist/designer/idea-man/etc. writes about what they hope to accomplish, viewers come and see their proposal and if they are interested and want to see it happen they make a pledge.
Projects are only funded if the the goal amount has been reached. It's all or nothing. Over $350 million has been pledged by more than 2.5 million people since 2009
Why did I go to Kickstarter for my project?
It's simple. Writing books takes time and a certain amount of resources needs to be in place to get a book written, printed and distributed.
