Crowdfunded Self-Publishing: Leo's McKay Formula | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it

From the original article:

 

"$10: You get one advance copy of the ebook

 

$20: You get one signed advance copy of the printed book. Delivered by Canada Post.

 

$50: Your name appears in an alphabetized list of "Friends" on the Facebook page and the website. Plus, you get one signed advance copy of the printed book and one advance copy of the ebook.

 

$1000: Your name appears in an alphabetized list of "Pillars" on a special page at the front of the printed book. You get two signed advance copies of the printed book and two advance copies of the ebook. You get a limited edition hand-printed copy of the book's cover art, by Ben Brush. The author will also make an in-person appearance at a private venue of your choice in the Maritime provinces and do a reading/signing of Roll Up the Rim. Outside the Maritimes, this perk can be claimed over Skype.

 

These are some of the options laid out on Leo McKay's Indiegogo campaign site.

 

Indiegogo is a site where entrepreneurs can raise funds to start a project and McKay is an author, trying to drum up business for his next book.

 

He launched his Indiegogo campaign "Roll Up the Rim" on Monday April 2, with the goal of raising $8,500 to publish his next book -- titled Roll Up the Rim -- in 30 days..."

 

Must read for would-be self-publishers. 8/10
