I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how exactly Kickstarter works, so I thought I would make a post here so all the information is in one place.
If I share the link, does that help you?
When you share the Kickstarter link, it certainly does help. The more eyes I can get on the campaign, the likelier it is that I will be able to reach my funding goal.
What happens if you don’t reach your funding goal?
If we don’t reach the $3,000 funding goal I set for publishing, marketing and copies of the book, nobody gets charged. The campaign ends on December 1 at 8:25 p.m. ET, so if at that point, we are sitting at $2,999, the campaign is unsuccessful and nobody has to pay a penny.
Can I wait until I get my paycheck to pledge?
Of course you can, but credit cards won’t be charged until after the campaign is successfully funded, so if you want to pledge and don’t have the money right now, don’t worry about it.
Is this just a fundraiser?
In a way, this is a fundraiser, but much like fundraisers done in schools, you get something for your money. For as little as $20, you can get a copy of the paperback book, while $250 will get you multiple copies of the book, plus I would include a recipe of your choosing in the published book. Even with $5, you will get recognition on this website so everyone can see you played a part in fulfilling my dream.
If anyone else has any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask and I will add the responses here!
