5 Days and less than $3,000...let's hit this Kickstarter stretch goal!


I love Kickstarters, Shark Tank, and all things entrepreneurial. I have a ton of products from them, and I've never regretted a single purchase. Some have made their goals, others have fallen short, but I always feel good about supporting people who are working hard to make their dreams become a reality.

Recently, an author friend of mine launched his first Kickstarter (in no small part because I dragged him to do it).



He has a following...more than 160,000 books sold to date, is a great story teller (this Kickstarter is for his third major fantasy series), and I believe he'll definitely be in the "writing business" for many years to come. He's one of what I call the professional self-published. Those that release books with the same commitment to quality that the big publishers are putting out.

So, Phil funded almost immediately, and has reached a number of stretch goals, but his most recent goal is one I'm particularly interested in. Phil has rallied some of his self-published friends and for everyone  that backs at the $10 or more level, they'll receive the first book in some really great indie  series.

 

So what books are coming if Phil reaches the next stretch goal?
  • Dyrk Ashton's Paternus  
  • Davis Ashura's William Wilde and the Necrosed  
  • AC Cobble's Benjamin Ashwood  
  • David Estes' Fatemarked  
  • Ben Galley's Blood Rush  
  • Jeramy Goble's Coven Queen 
Like Phil, these authors are absolutely killing it in the self-published space. One of the things that most people outside the business of publishing (and inside it for that matter) is just how successful these authors are -- even though you may have never heard their names. And again, I attribute their success to producing high quality books that stand toe-to-toe with books put out by the big name publishers.

I'd love for Phil to hit this next stretch goal. It has the potential to expose these amazing authors to a larger audience, and I think you'll find some new series to love. Not to mention. It's an amazing deal! For just $10 you can receive 7 ebooks (a $35 value) and if you prefer print or audio versions you can get those at the $25 and $35 levels.

But don't take my recommendation of this Kickstarter on blind faith. Phil has an excerpt of the book (which is fully written, edited, and ready to ship after the Kickstarter closes), posted and you can read the first few chapters now. That way you can "try before you buy."


So, take a look, and if you like what you see, please back Phil's project. Like I said, it's already funded (and written) so the risk factor has been eliminated. But if we reach the next stretch goal you'll be introduced to a bunch of the new indie elite and I'm sure it'll open the door to some great new series for you to dive into.

  5. If your project doesn't reach its goal, then funds don't get collected, and no ... If your project is successfully funded, Kickstarter applies a 5% fee
