Primary Project Goal:
The Publishing of "Saviors" psychological thriller novel, by emerging author Matt Seidel - to be published by partner and Next-gen Publishing & New Media Startup, Holon Publishing. Our collaboration grants us the unique situation to publish Matt Seidel's with minimal costs and maximum resourcefulness.
Perspective: If 150 people back this project at the $10 level, then we can fully publish "Saviors", giving all contributors a copy of the paperback edition, and make it available on Amazon for Print on Demand. After publication, the paperback edition of the book will be sold for around $14.95.
Secondary Project Goal:
We're seeking to create a community and culture around every book that we publish. Beyond publishing "Saviors" we will be seeking to create artistic and creative marketing material to promote the longevity and brand of the book itself, the author's individual brand, and also tie-in its readers in unique ways.
Therefore, all of the contributors of this campaign will be invited to a launch party of the book. With higher-end contributors invited to a special VIP release and dinner.
Stretch Goals: $2,500+ With additional funding, we would like to create a special book trailer / mock film trailer for the book. With high end video production and professional actors. We estimate that we could spend $1,000 and produce a 3-5 minute video of exactly that description. Including all backers in the credits.
$3,500+ Beyond video production, we would also like to invest in promotional events and publicity for the book and the author.
$5,000+ Additionally, we would like to invest in unique art and style for the book. With additional funding, we could find the right artist(s) and deliver "Saviors" as a graphic novel.
Risks and challenges
Shipping costs can become hairy for books. We would have less money to invest in marketing content for the book and the author if we were to lose money on shipping costs.
On the highest reward, we want to indicate that the offer there is aimed at a very basic book publishing, such as a paperback/perfect bound novel. Full-color printing becomes more expensive and therefore would be difficult to offer at that level.
The longevity of the book's buzz becomes a challenge only based on human involvement and conditions of the market itself. Therefore, delivering fresh content that the audience would like to enjoy will become a quest of ours. Both from author and publisher.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
