Don’t worry, I have not forgotten about my blog project. I will release the introduction next week, as I do not want to crowd my blog with too many posts.
Now, you might be asking why; why did I push back the exciting blog project I have been talking so much about? Well, it’s because of The Battle For Oz.
If you did not read my last post, this will seem new to you, but if you did, I hope this post will nudge you to check out the project. I honestly do not like to repeat the topic of my posts, but I have to be certain I did my best to raise funds for my book.
So, what’s going on with The Battle For Oz?
I have put the novel up on a crowd-funding publishing website.
What is crowd-funding?
Crowd-funding is when you and everyone else decides to fund my book. If the funding goal is met, the book will be published. If it’s not met, you will be refunded.
Inkshares is similar to Kickstarter and Indiegogo, except it is only for books.
How much is the goal?
$7,700. That is why I need all of your help!
What happens after the project meets the goal?
The Battle For Oz will be professionally edited, designed, printed, and distributed to bookstores.
What do funders (a.k.a backers) get?
Depending on the amount funded, some will get e-books while others will receive paperbacks delivered to their doorsteps.
How do you fund this project?
Click HERE and you will be taken to the project page. There, you will be able to read about the project and select an amount to give. You can give any amount you like by clicking ‘Back This Book’.
Inkshares accepts funds through credit and debit cards.
*Minimum funding is 5USD, but with that you can get an e-book.
Until when can you fund this project?
The campaign runs from Oct 2nd 2014 to January 5th 2015.
But from today till October 11, the publisher will add an extra 5USD whenever a person decides to fund the project.
If 1,000 of you fund 5USD in the next few days, the project would be 90% completed. So you see, the minimum can make a HUGE difference!
I hope this simple break down answers any of your questions. Thank you for all the support you have shown so far and I hope you would consider supporting me in this endeavour too. I also appreciate all the Facebook shares, re-blogs, and tweets on this project. You guys are amazing!
Keeping this short and sweet, I’ll end with a shout out to all my current funders/backers: Joan Tan, Mrs Roberts, Calvin Ng, Jonas Lee, Fuibee, May Foo, Tony To, Mr Ray, Jay Low, Yean Ching & Greg, Kenny Saw, Mei Mei Yap, Angelyn Looi, Douglas, Sharon Lim, Kok Kin, Peng Sheng, Katherine Law, Elaine Ong, Cheng Yee, and all those friends who have said they would back me up. Thank you for believing in me 🙂
Have a nice day!
