      Thanks for the note, Rob! I'll definitely address those questions in the book. One thought in general, though... I don't know of a single magic bullet or service that can pull in guaranteed coverage for a project. It's all based on building a reputation and relationships over time and doing the research to find venues with an interest in the project's subject matter and reaching out in smart ways. It's a long term process tied into each individual's career building that begins months or years before launching a Kickstarter. In the book, I'll go into this with much more depth and include tons of specific, practical examples and tips of how to best make use of any existing media contacts and build more.

      I struggled with either the issue bundle or the graphic novel bundle. Settled on the graphic novel bundle. Hope I chose wisely. Been loving your work for DC!

      I've been looking to put together a course on launching a successful Kickstarter, and have a list of Inventors I'll blast this campaign out to, so they can benefit from this book.

      A question I'd be interested in is; What are the proven methods to drive quality traffic (paid and unpaid) to your Kickstarter campaign and generate media buzz ?

      Hi, since you asked for questions: I would appreciate any hands on recommendations and - probably even more important - the most essential decisions to make regarding international fulfilment - thx

      Looking forward to your advice. I've backed over 1,600 Kickstarters and give out advice all the time. I look forward to having another good book to recommend. Happy repeat backer.

      Thanks for the kind words, Guy! And thanks for backing and for the question, Nathan!

      I'd say CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD would probably be rated PG if it were a movie.

      THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HERSELF and ABC DISGUSTING are both children's picture books that are probably best for kids somewhere in the 3-8 year old range. Younger kids may need the books read to them; older kids can handle them on their own.

      And you can probably get a good sense of if the books are appropriate for the kids you're thinking of by checking out the preview pages:

      Cool project, I look forward to seeing the tips and secrets book. As a person not at all familiar with the other three books in the package, what would you say is the appropriate age range for those books? Thanks!

      This is what I've long desired -- practical, useful advice on Kickstarter from a veteran creator. A bargain at this price! Thanks, Greg! This is a no-brainier backing decision for anyone even marginally interested in the Kickstarter process.
