In just 10 days, my book, The Wonderful World of Zuri Rose: Flowers A-Z, will be available for pre-orders through Kickstarter!! It’s so surreal!
What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform where creators, like me, raise awareness and funds to bring their project to life.
Self-publishing my book allowed me complete creative control over the publishing process. However, unlike traditionally published authors, I don’t have the backing to bring my book to bookshelves.
I’ve invested quite a bit of resources getting this book done. Pre-selling it through Kickstarter will allow me to cover my first, offset print run as well as gauge public interest in my book. If you back my campaign, you will receive a first edition, signed book as well as limited edition merchandise like stationery and alphabet flashcards. I hope you’ll consider purchasing my book on April 19th!
I have gotten quite a bit of requests for bulk orders and specifically questions around wholesale pricing. I would love to be able to fulfill wholesale orders in the future but for now, my main goal is to print a high quality book, with all of the bells and whistles and meeting my Kickstarter goal will ensure that I can do that.
- If you don’t already have a Kickstarter account, sign up for one now. Don’t wait until April 19th! It’s a free account and the only way to purchase a book. If you want step-by-step directions, please watch this video.
- Share this campaign with everyone you know. That is the best way to expand my reach.
- Consider joining my book Launch Team/Affiliate program. The purpose of the Launch Team is to spread the news about my launch on social media. Reach out to me for more details.
- Know any publication or television outlet in sharing my publishing journey, consider connecting me to them.
I can’t thank you enough for your support and encouragement. It’s been a long road to get this far and I can’t wait to get to the finish line. There are lots of amazing children’s book on the market but nothing quite as unique as this book. I can’t wait to share it with you!
