I’ve heard of kickstarting all sorts of things and have even donated to Reading Rainbow’s kickstarter campaign, but a kickstarter for a book is a new one to me!
Given that the book in question ticks a couple of my things that make me happy boxes (feminist, steampunk, bicycles) I am seriously considering contributing.
The book could end up being totally silly, but it is coming from a very small publisher that has done this sort of thing before and has many bicycling related books and zines. And if it does turn out to be bad, $15 isn’t that much to lose. Hmmm.
Have you ever heard of a kickstarter for a book? And if so, did you donate? And if so, did you like the end result?
