Risks and challenges
Writing is difficult, requires a lot of time, sacrificed and effort from an author, all with the measured understanding that all that effort may culminate into little or no return at all for an author (save for the singular pleasure derived from writing).
Your contribution will be used to offset some of the costs that go into writing. Below is a sample itinerary demonstrating where the funds for this Kickstart will go.
Top grade editing is costly. While cheaper alternatives are available, to produce quality results it is best to rely on experienced and vetted editors. I edit most of my work, however after spending months on a project, I am bound to miss quite a few errors. To make sure I am providing my readers with the best quality of work and to ensure that they are able to enjoy my work, I strive to minimize distractions created by grammatical/spelling errors.
Cover Art: $300.00
We've all heard the adage, Do Not Judge A Book By It's Cover. Well, considering how much authors put into choosing the right cover for their book, this may not always be the case. A cover in itself tells a story, it provides potential readers with a preview of what awaits them with an author's particular book.
Advertising and Marketing: $200.00
E-marketing services such as Google's AdSense, Amazon Marketing, Facebook and even Pinterest's Ad option makes it easier for self published authors to take autonomy of their own marketing campaigns. These services are easy to navigate, wide spread, and affective, but can quickly add up.
This is not the sum total of the expenses that are associated with the publishing of this book, however these are the costs I am hoping contributors will help account for.
