CrowdFunding Success for Authors and Writers
Dr. Judith Briles, Founding Partner, The Book Shepherd

Yes, it takes money. Thousands of dollars. Unless you have plenty of money to fund your book, an awesome friend or relative that loves what you do and is glad to write checks to support you and your journey, or you win the lottery … you need to noodle ways to underwrite your book project(s).
CrowdFunding is a way to get money … other people’s money that comes to you as a “gift.” Oh, you will pay taxes because you will report it as revenues … but you don’t have to pay it back. That’s a Happy Dance for today.
