So I’d been hearing about “Crowdsourced Funding” and thought I’d give it a test run and report back on how it goes. Yesterday I submitted ten pages of a manuscript to Pubslush and, so far, so good. It’s fairly straightforward and the service is free.
Here’s the scoop:
- Submit ten pages of a manuscript.
- Tell friends and colleagues to check it out.
- Readers view your excerpt and decide (hopefully) to support it.
- Reach 2000 supporters (yikes!) and the full book will be published.
Customer service has been very responsive and it’s easy to check on the status of your book. Another positive feature is that Pubslush donates books to children in impoverished countries each time a book reaches publication stage.
Will keep you apprised as the process continues…
