Links to Fiction Kickstarters
Here is an ever changing list of links to various Kickstarter Fiction Campaigns we think you should check out.
I will update every other day or so and add more... I am giving my opinions on each one, but you should check each one out.
I am ignoring all the ones that are too stupid to ever fund. Not worth our time studying them.
AND REMEMBER, IF YOU START A KICKSTARTER, LET US KNOW AHEAD. LOREN AND I WILL BOTH BE GLAD TO REVIEW IT FOR YOU AND WE WILL PUT IT IN THE CATEGORY ABOVE OF MEMBERS DOING KICKSTARTERS. AND I WILL EMAIL EVERYONE WHEN IT LAUNCHES.
Romance and Fantasy: Two Short Story Collections by David H. Hendrickson. This is the textbook campaign on how to do fiction collections. Really attractive, rewards are clear, some extra added stuff from Dave's inventory. This is the one to back and study, folks. Really well done!!
Whiskey Springs by Kathryn Kaleigh. Wow, this is a really, really nice small campaign, just about perfect for what it is trying to do. Very clean, very professional, very clear. And the nifty book-trailer like video is short and perfect for this. Study this one, folks!
2020 Holiday Spectacular by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. We did this last year, basically an Advent Calendar for fiction. 37 original holiday short stories by over 25 professional writers, all edited by Kris. You get one holiday story per day from November 26th through January 1st delivered to you to read on any device. And there is a ton more, including a special three-week How to Write a Holiday Crime Story that on the third assignment you can write a story for Kris to consider for next year's Holiday Spectacular. And also Holiday Calendars for Valentines and Halloween in 2021, edited by Annie Reed and Mark Leslie. This is great fun. Last years certainly was. Check it out.
Ghost Probe by Craig A. Price, Jr. Well done small campaign on helping getting a new novel out. He can write, he's a USA Today bestseller. He has a bunch of different books available and a great attitude. Nice small campaign that I bet makes it if he can get the word out.
Tide of Fate: Book Four... by Matthew Wolf. Flat out the best fiction kickstarter campaign I have ever seen. This took a ton of time and a lot of money to do. Wow!! You got to look at this one just to see what is possible. He has basically hit his $12,000 ask in five days. He clearly knows what he is doing.
River of Souls Trilogy: Second Edition by Claire ODell. Clearly a traditionally published writer heading for indie in some way or another. Almost no rewards to speak of, and very, very basic, with a pretty high ask. Made it half way but got a hunch the other half will be a push.
Space Janitor Expansion by Julia Huni. This is a really fun and well-done campaign that Julia flat out says she has something for everyone in it. And she does, pretty much. This is worth a look. Well done all the way and should fund.
Dark Crime Novels Set in South East London by Kimberly (Yes, that is the title of the campaign.) This has an interesting way of showing all the books as if they are on Kindle screens. She states she is new (not a good plan to get confidence in buyers) but this is a well-done campaign in general and should fund. Normally I support all campaigns, but I only read paper and I can't get it, otherwise I would support it. Give it a look, folks.
There are others that are out farther in dates, but have a slow start. If one of them takes off, I will list it here. But you might want to look at them. There just aren't that many total in fiction, something we are trying to change. SO IF YOU ARE LAUNCHING A KICKSTARTER, PLEASE WRITE ME WITH DETAILS AND WE'LL PUT IT IN OUR SPECIAL SECTION TO HELP GET YOU SOME PUSH.
