Considering a Kickstarter Campaign

Hello my darlings,

For a little while now I have thought about starting a Kickstarter campaign to fund the expansion of the Age of Waking Death series into libraries, bookstores, etc. I haven’t quite decided if I should do this with Createspace’s expanded distribution or Lightning Source publishing. The biggest difference between the two (for me) is that Lightning Source has a return policy and Createspace does not offer one. (What is your opinion? As a reader, would you be more inclined a book that you had the option of returning?)

So what I am thinking of is that the campaign will be for the first three books, so The Dragon’s Disciples, The Heretic Priest, and The Hollow Living. The money will go towards printing, distribution, purchasing isbns, registering with the library of congress, advertising, etc. I am thinking of a number around $800 – $1,000. As far as incentives go, this is what I am thinking about offering.

A $20 donation gets you a poster signed by the author. The poster will look like this:

A $35 donation will get you the poster and an eBook copy of “The Dragon’s Disciples” for whatever eReader you have.

A $50 donation will get you the poster and a paperback copy of “The Dragon’s Disciples”.

A $100 donation will get you the poster, a paperback copy of “The Dragon’s Disciples” and the ebooks in whatever format for “The Dragon’s Disciples” AND “The Heretic Priest”.

What does that sound like to you guys? Let me know your opinions!

Your most adored,

C.N.F.
