Risks and challenges
Kickstarter is important because we really want to make this book without the help of a publisher. We found printers that can get everything made but printers are not cost effective unless we can order in bulk. The Numbers have been crunched and we’ve set a $3,000 goal that makes everything achievable. Fortunately, the book and all of the art for the rewards is complete. As soon as this Kickstarer is funded, I can set an order so I can get everything out to you as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
