I ran my first Kickstarter campaign 30 Apr-21 May in 2014 to raise funds to print a book of my erotica.
This was the first time I've marketed anything. I decided to document my experience. My campaign was successfully funded.
I think I might have invented a new genre of erotica. I ran a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to print my book, fingers & tongues.
I thought long and hard about how to make the design work for the book's intent. Using my experience as a UX consultant, I made user-centred decisions on the typography, editing, book design and the use of imagery.
Until this morning, I hadn't decided which crowdfunding platform to choose between Kickstarter and Indiegogo for my campaign starting tomorrow. I want to raise the money to print my erotica as a book.
Here are the pros and cons I noted yesterday evening.
I have a series of crowdfunded projects planned for Kickstarter.
To get used to the logistics of planning and running a crowdfunding campaign, I decided to self-publish my short stories as my first campaign.
Do you read erotica? Or would you like to know why a feminist would write porn?
If you read erotica, do you find yourself flipping forward to the sex bits? If so, my new book "fingers & tongues" is for you.
