Kickstarter?
« on: December 05, 2012, 09:33:50 AM »

A friend suggested that I think about using the crowdfunding website kickstarter.com to raise some money to allow me to cut back on my other job in the summer, thus allowing me to write my next book more quickly.

Have you folks heard of other people doing this?  What do you think about it?

I think Rick Chesler, who I know from Facebook, did it. You could look him up on FB and ask him. His third book, Solar Island, comes out in a few days. I read his first two books and liked them a lot.
