Crowdfunding is a trend...not a fad!
You've written a book...and now you need money for design and printing; money for marketing; money to develop a website; even money for a PR campaign. Money. If your resources are low, and your bank yawns when you approach it, there's another way.
Welcome to OPM! Other people's money...money that is given to you and money that you don't have to pay back. Welcome to crowdfunding.
You want the odds are on your side. To be in the 30 percent minority. If you are an author or author-to-be, you want to succeed. You want to be in the 30 percent that succeed in a publishing crowdfunding project. Not the 70 percent that don't.

I found this to be a huge learning tool. As a listener of audio books only, I have also wondered about how one can make any money or market in a way that can be profitable to the author.

This book exposes all of the steps that an author will be required to go through to become published (and I imagine that they are ever-changing) and how crowdfunding is a valuable asset in getting an author's product into the hands of the people who will purchase it.

I would not consider it a marketing book, but the information included would be invaluable to a beginning author.

The author also narrated the book. In some instances this can be a terrible idea, however I think that because she knew the ins and outs of what she was speaking of it made it easier to follow along.

While *I did receive this as a gift in exchange for an unbiased review, I would recommend it to anyone who may be interested in how crowd funding works. I will also be keeping it near the top of my library, in case I do become motivated one day to write a book of my own.

Please consider "following me" here on Audible.com. I purchased a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to. I also have the opportunity to review books in all genres, many that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and narrators. Thanks!

I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that I read them the reviews of others before I purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select yes directly below this paragraph? Thank you so much.
